[IDM, Glitch] Kaiuna - Feels Like... (WIP)

Hey Folks,

So Iím gearing up to release an album and Iím pretty stoked on most of the tracks. However this one seems to be giving me some grief. Iíve already re-written the second half once, and still just feel like itís not as good as it could be. It could just be that itís the oldest song on the album and Iíve listened to it too many times. I tend to get a little nit-picky and never finish tracks


What do you guys think? Any suggestions or ideas of where I could take it or what I can tweak to improve it?

I like al ot of the elements of the song, really like the end part starting at 440. Think you could maybe shorten the intro and get to the drums earlier and introduce a version of the part that starts at 440 earlier. The song jumps around a lot and doesn't seem cohesive. Many great ideas but no over arcing concept to keep it cohesive. I would say if you really want to change it edit it down and try working in the end motif earlier in the song to make it sound more cohesive.

Hey thanks a lot for the listen and advice! Yeah my ADD usually kicks in when I'm producing and I end up making ridiculously long and nonlinear progressive tracks that don't have much repetition. I could probably split most of my songs into two and they would still have enough meat to work.

I really like the idea of taking the section at the end and incorporating it into the beginning. I did use the same guitar section for the ending and the second part of the intro, but it might be nice to use some of the drums and bass as well.

Thanks again for taking the time to check it out. I'll try to revisit it this week and might post an updated version.

I actually like songs that are nonlinear and that are constantly moving. It really gets your engaged. And that's the type of music I like even though I'm not really familiar with the genre of this song. As for being cohesive maybe add some transitional stuff between the sections? There's a lot of things you can experiment with there!

And that ending at 4:55 is sick!

I too like it a lot

It doesn't bother me with the arrangement even though the suggestions others made sound justified if you choose so.

What I heard was a lack of deep end. I would fatten the bottom with some EQ or even double what there already is with some xtra subbass.

Cheers

Thanks for the input everyone!

Since this version, I've taken the bass and some of the drum elements from the ending and added them to the intro. This will hopefully add some low end in the beginning and make the intro a bit more cohesive.

Thanks for the tip. I do have a subbass track mimicking the bass line, but I had it fairly low in the mix. As I mentioned before, my monitors don't have the best bass representation, but I have a sub hooked up. The only issue with this, is that the sub is on a separate volume control, and therefore tricky to balance levels between my monitors.

I'll definitely bring the sub up in the mix a bit. I should have the finished product in the next week or two (with the rest of my album). I'll make sure to post it somewhere in the forum!

Thanks again everyone! Keep being awesome
