[Illbient / Trip Hop] Undogmatic - Street Lights

Here's a new short track that's going to be used as a chilled out interlude [edit: not an interlude anymore].
Let me know if you have any positive or negative criticism about it.
Cheers.

Edit: Here's a new version. Now extended and now I have also added trombone and saxophone, for some brassy goodness.

The song came together for me when the drums kicked in at the 0:30 second mark. Beforehand I wasn't quite sure what kind of a message this track was going to send. The kick clips and that caught my ear. Other than that, great work!

Mellow! I dig the brass with those heavy drums. Nice vibe.

Really like the overall vibe of the track -- nice and mellow. The trumpet is a nice addition, too.

If I had to be critical, I'd say the snare at 0:25 kind of jumps out a bit and catches me off guard, especially after that mellow intro. The beat is great, it just sometimes feels like it overpowers the rest of the parts in some places.

There is a bit of noodling that happens in the trumpet part around 1:00 -- maybe there's some room to cut away a portion of the brass part or play with the PP delay in order to create a little variety.

Enjoyed it, though, and would like to hear more.

Cheers.

Feel like you should cut just a LITTLE LITTLE bit of the highs off of the distorted pad in the intro, also try and clean up the low end of the rhodes (?) piano a little bit.
It sounds boomy imo.

I like how your kick and bass melded for the rest of it though and I def dig the dreamy vibe. Nice!

I can def see this being used as an interlude.

Nice, chill vibe...felt that the kick was a little aggressive in the intro, but the rest melded good when everything came in. Definitely liked the liquid/ambient flow of the delayed melodies!

Re: [Illbient / Trip Hop] Undogmatic - Street Lights

I find myself listening to the drums instead of enjoying the ambient instruments, definitely tune those down (at least the kick) a dB or 2

Some processing could be done on the horns to give them that ohhhhhhh shit feel when they come in, they sit behind the drums when they should be adding character and excitement to the track

T'was chill doe
thanks for the tune

Re: [Illbient / Trip Hop] Undogmatic - Street Lights

I think the snare could use a little compression, the initial hit is too loud for my taste. Maybe eq out some of the horn frequencies from the snare so they don't compete, because the horn is losing as it is right now and that should be more forward. Nice feel though, its a very solid idea.

Re: [Illbient / Trip Hop] Undogmatic - Street Lights

I have updated the track according to some of the criticism received thus far, plus I have extended it - it's no longer an interlude. It now has a saxophone, and a trombone as well on the new second half [the extended part].
Cheers everybody. Thanks for the feedback.
