Try adding a stabby arpeggio that either changes with each section or gets more complex. It really needs a melody more than anything. Also, Maybe try adding some cool FX with sound design to be used sparingly with the beat you. If you use ableton, come up with something using the operator plugin. It sounds promising!

I tried adding another layer and designing an arpegiator but it took the ambient feel away. Defo agree with adding some FX. I'm taking a mic out with me over the weekend when I'm in London so will hopefully record some cool shit. I use Protools 12 but I will be making a change to Ableton in the coming months.

Love the groove, I am drummer before an electronic producer .. do you drum as well? I think the idea of adding some more texture elements (fx) will work well. feels tome there is enough melodic interest as is for a cool groovy ambient ish track

Yeah man, I've been drumming well over 20 years now.

As for the song, once I've added some more textured elements I can then see where it can go from there. It needs another larger section added, I wouldn't want to add anymore repeated parts from what's already there.

I'll post a reworked version on Tuesday.

If you could add in some ethereal vocals over the top I think that would really top the track off

Re: [Ambient/IDM] The Deadly Rhythm - Ambient Groove

Personally, if this were mine, I'd be looking at making what I already have work even harder for me, but playing with the volume of each part a little more..adding automation to the various gain levels and causing more movement in that area..slowly morphing things about a little. Basically make this very much a track of solos and build things up to bring everything together at the end.

I'd start off with those found sounds you're talking about getting..or hopefully have got already by this time. Maybe a cityscape down low and bring the current start as it is and build from there.

The suggestion from BoJoProductions about including some ethereal vocals is a good one, too. That said, I'd go easy on any if I were to use them..just a slight hint of vocals..even only an "Ah" or "Ouu" that repeats throughout..and even then I'd keep it very much in the background down low with reverb on it to help give it a feel of distance.

Looking forward to hearing where you do take this. Best of luck with it.
