The Drip taper EP preview (ambient/tapes/footwork/drudge)

Hello

Here's a preview to my new record - 'The Drip taper EP'. If anyone can take a sec to give it a play, id really appreciate it. Be good to know what you guys think of it. Its got its footwork/beatier moments, but also full of ambient, drowsy sensabilities too.




The main thing i focused on was just to make something original, that was good for headphones as well as the early hours in dingy nightclubs.


Thanks

Thomas, Shanghai

there were a lot of points where the reverb seemed WAY to high in the mix.

I love the composition to this though, totally great to dance to.

thanks for listening man. i think i can see what you mean on some tracks regarding reverb, guess i produced it for that kind of feel.......but yeah i think maybe sometimes its a bit much. Thanks for the CC though, appreciate it. you said WAY too high, if you could point out some parts you thought were the most effected would be cool. its nice to have the opinion of fresh ears, thanks. Tom

135-227 has a nice level of reverb. I think the key message I am trying to give you here is that except for when reverb is a composition element (as opposed to a mixdown element) it works best when it is cohesive. One reverb on a send track that you can automate the channel gain and the send levels on is usually how I use reverb (again, unless it is a temporary spatial effect in a composition).

The key to good reverb is making sure you don't screw up your bottom end.
In fact I would suggest trying to mix the bottom end better and see how that affects the sound of the reverb.

werd. I get what you're saying for the most part. Thats how i use reverb when im composing, on send tracks. To me it sounds alright on the whole, but i did notice after i got the masters back that there is quite a bit of mastering reverb on there....but as a whole i figured the mastered ones were better than just using my final mixdowns, that were too quiet. thanks for the detailed reply though man.

Love it! I get this warm feeling iside whenever I see Footwork-inspired tunes in the listening booth

This reminds me of the recent XXYYXX album - except it patches up all the gripes I had with that record. Fucking love it dude. Subs sound beautifully drowsy - pared with the really cool drones they sound amazing.

Great work overall, will be deffs following up this release when it drops
