Re: [Breakbeat] Signal Jacker - SWARM

Nice dark intro and cool white-sounding timbres for the drums that roll into the track.
I like that big synth that creates the glue between the drums, and the falling sounds.

Excellent deep sounds. As far as constructive criticism, the only thing I could think of is personal taste of thinking maybe you could have used some of the vocal samples more sparingly. Otherwise, been seriously enjoying this track and the sounds you chose. Great job!

You are really good at this whole making music thing. This is no exception. I enjoyed the track - it's got movement, the sampled snippets are interesting, I think it hit the 'tripped out breakbeat' on the head, and it's as well mixed as everything else I've heard from you. Has a bit of a Bristol vibe going on. Looking forward to the full release.

Nice one Indigo!! really glad you like it mate!!!! I do use a lot of vocal samples I know, and you're not the only person who thinks that by any means.

Re: [Breakbeat] Signal Jacker - SWARM

Artificer nailed it..f the LP is as stonking as this, then it's going to be really worth the wait.

Love the use of various samples on this, that combined give the impression of something totally different. I could be wrong, but I think I'm picking out bits of Dr. Who and The Wicker Man in there. (More bees anyone? )

Best of luck with the release, Rich..you deserve it to be as large as possible, if anyone ever did.

Ahh, close, very very close, not Wickerman but infact The Swarm! With a little Aliens and Clockwork Orange thrown in for good measure!!


Thanks Dan, you da man

Not my brightest day yesterday. You think I would have sussed those samples were from The Swarm and not Wickerman, given the track title and image..don't know how I missed that.

Oh the shame..

Re: [Breakbeat] Signal Jacker - SWARM

the bassline is really loud compared to everything else, its is mixed well, kinda wish the bassline was quieter and the drums fuller. The track overall is good, just those two aspects kinda detract from it.
