[breakbeat] Concrete - Street Walk (WIP)

Hi there! This track will be the opening track of an incoming EP. It's kind of minimal, with a long progression to a more aggressive part. Any thought about it?

I think this one is very atmospheric. I also like your choice of samples - the mix of wood, metal and glass. Also, the part from 3.30 is very powerful - I wouldn't change anything.

Thanks! The only samples I used for this one are field recording from a London street and a breakbeat (I don't remember which one...), so it's fun that you can hear wood metal and glass!

Can't really figure out the track. Some elements seem misplaced. I would work more on it

Re: [breakbeat] Concrete - Street Walk (WIP)

Hi

Had to check out the track since..breakbeat
Some notes:
- way the break is cut up is really notable. Maybe make the pieces a little bigger or make a fade if it was done with an volume automation. A little reverb on them? Or this could be just what you want, then ignore my comment
- Like the bass and the modulation it has
- Like the background noise.
- That second break (or probably the pitched version of the first as you said you only used one) is a bit to chaotic rattling for me. It sounds like some old skool rough breakbeat infused house. Which could be cool..but maybe in a bit more measured way. Now it goes on for quite long imho.

An idea is maybe to try out lowering the tempo a bit on the entire track, who know..it could just fit better.

Anyway, nice start and keep on breakin'

Thanks for the feedback! I've reworked the track so now it's a lot shorter and sounds more like an intro for the EP. So the chaotic break is gone!

You're welcome

Good idea to rework it as a sort of intro. Curious to hear how the whole thing turns out when it's finished!
