Re: [Techno]Can't stop...

Good 90s style intelligent techno. The mix seems a little flat in my headphones, maybe it needs more BASS. I think the structure might be a bit too focussed on kickless parts for techno dancing too (though towards the end it makes more sense).

I like the subtly evolving loops, I wish they'd arrived earlier!

So is this an open competition or is it all over now?

Open to all. New one on Friday, every two weeks.

Thanks for taking the time to feedback brb. Yep my head is very nineties techno tbh, what I like. I actually stopped this on the submission and realised the final master as been eq'q too much so the bass is very light. Easy to solve.


I am close to stripping parts back and focusing on using more of the latter part of the tracks grooves to build a stronger track using different synth and sound sources. The Beat battles are about using only whats provided. Im all for subtle evolving loops and there's some potential elements in that second part I really want to work on. There's a couple of BB tracks I want to reboot and bring newer more polished elements to elevate the sound of the tracks. 2017 project of vision....

Re: [Techno]Can't stop...

Well I've had a quick rework of this tonight. Not done a lot more production and mixing elements.
Be interested in what people think. As for retro, yep Im still stuck in the 80's 90's pre- EDM!!! I enjoy attempting to make it.

Original post updated.

Pretty good arrangement and nice use of synths. The track could use some heavier drum & bass though.

Thanks Kyrpto. Acutally listened to this in the car this morning on the way to work (dont normally post until Ive done the incar test) and the bass (or sub bass) is very heavy, I was on the verge of remastering the stems and reducing the sub bass.

Let me know if any others think the bass and drums are too low, it's an easy fix.

Yep 90's is my timetrap! I do need to work on some more modern flavours, but it's what my ear and mix is drawn too I guess. Great positive feedback though, glad you enjoyed it. Took a while to get all the parts balanced and working together, there's a lot of nuances in the synths that have created a vocal effect.

So I hope, as with my aim, where the listener gets drawn into the sound and thinks the vocal has been looped, it's actually not. Quite proud of that but maybe no one actually gets it which is just as good (oooh nearly use th c**l word!!! too old for that)!

Re: [Techno]Can't stop...

Hey. So the transient on that kick hurts my ears, but that may have something to do with my headphones, they are kinda crap. Just saying it seems very loud, esp at the begining when it is alone. I like the tweaks since the BB, this is a nice piece.

Re: [Techno]Can't stop...

Holy hoo hah. U need to give me a prewarning, I started dancing which at this juncture could cause serious pain without appropriate hydrolics. 😜. It drilled its way into my brain good work. I admired how the simplicity of it really made it a powerful beast to reckon with. I say that cause I have a tendancy to add too much which takes something away. The vocals did make it modern in the sense that old techno would have same vocal loop throughout piece. U got that sound on the vocals right on to a T, it drew the tune out into a future expanse.

Re: [Techno]Can't stop...

This one makes me want to dance ;p I really like where it goes at 1:30. Dubby w/o being that same dub techno song I've heard a zillion times (I've made plenty myself). I like that guitar pluck a lot, kind of an unusual element in a techno track. Also you've got that nice, tight, percussive "gunk" going on--the gooey lo fi synth pumping along with the hats. Lots of stuff to keep my interested. Pretty mad build up in the middle. Defo has my head bobbing and waiting for it.
