Hooger - Low Life City

Post by HoogerJ » Mon Jun 23, 2014 2:21 pm

For the first time made something completely out of samples (used drumrack in Ableton for the beat, tho)

this is pretty cool

i dont like when the sample/synth w/e goes up in pitch on the 4th bar of every 4 bars but i like the part after that at 1:15

kick could be more there too

I liked that. It makes me feel like I'm in a room of nothingness...

Decent track man. I like the swing you got going on in the drums. Quite a eerie track really, got a mysterious vibe about it. Nice.

sampled vocals are cool, and overall it's dope. suggestion for taking it up a couple clicks: don't use 100% sampled material.

What kind of elements could I replace or add using synths for example?

Interesting arrangement and a decent tune over all. Just varying the drums, maybe adding some fills or switching up the hi-hat pattern, would work quite well.
Melodic deepness from my mind.

Thx. Yeah, I admit: always a bit lazy on the variation of the beat. That sometimes makes my tracks a bit repetitive.

Okay, thx. Any suggestion on how? Must say that I stripped it from a lot of elements because I thought that would attribute more to the vibe I was looking for. Bit of a 'western' feel.

Sounds alright to me, maybe the levels need a bit of tweaking to sound more balanced etc but I think it's all good otherwise

This is cool mate. Not for the rave but to chill to at home its great. I like the roughness to the mix, intentional or not.

Thx. The rough and dark edge was intentional, but I got lucky with some artefacts :)
