[Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

Feedback appreciated, used a lot of experimental ambience recordings and kept the progression fairly simple. Would like to know if it holds your attention for the duration of the track or if you get bored listening to it.

Cheers

Sweet Just too placid and sedate for me.
It only states "it's all okay, nothing noteworthy to say though".

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

I like the mix a lot, The track structure is there but for my taste I want more of a climax , Possibly some washed out guitar chords with some reverb and distortion...? just an idea

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

i really like it, it just needs to build a bit more i think maybe a bit more tension in the middle so when the drums come in the second time there is a nice sense of resolve , love the field recordings textures in the song though

Yo Moppy,

I was totally into it. A slow song needs a slow pace. I didn't find it boring at all. Nice work.

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

This has a great feel but I do feel that it's missing either a modulation/B section or at least a variation on the A progression. Very often you can get away with repeated A sections like this just by substituting every other one with an altered version. So if A1 is E-D-B, maybe A2 is E-D-F# or E-D-E0, etc.

Lovely ambience, so that's one battle won.

Agree with this. Feels like something is missing ever so slightly. The ambience on this is beautiful though.

It suited me very much right now. Because probably my opinion will probably not be completely objective. But at the moment it's really awesome.

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

I envision myself on the bank of some dreary grey beach. Really evocative sonic soundscapes here! It sounds like Emancipator with DJ Shadow style drums. Really cool! It's relaxing and gritty at the same time. It actually almost borders on Post-Rock, which really aids the whole relaxation vibe. Awesome stuff here!

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

Hendu, I'm really digging this.

For me personally, I'm not completely a fan of the synth that comes in at the 45 second mark. I love the sound of it, but it sounds more like notes are being just pressed randomly as opposed to them being there for a necessary progression in the track. That's just me, but the general beat of the track is beautiful.

This is right up my alley. Production is very slick. Love the vibe. The only thing I'd suggest is coming back with something a little different after the beat drops back in.

Re: [Trip Hop] Zen Zero - Crossroads

Thanks for the feedback guys, I really appreciate it. I'm starting to feel I might be able to get good at this after a couple more years of producing; which is a good feeling for me I'll keep working on my variations, I think it is something I am not up to scratch with yet

Cheers aye
