Sounds a bit like some old detroit techno, maybe some of the odder french house stuff I've heard, Isolee, Losoul, that sort of thing. Sounds good though. Sounds like quite a good mix, pity the myspace player keeps seeming to cut out every five seconds or so. Good tune though
Hmm....

cheers for the feedback everyone.
mind u, having a regressive sound is probably the worst thing! oh well... :lol: i just sat down and without any inhibitions tried to make something dancy but a bit hardcore at the same time.. i wanna incorporate dubstep styled basslines and atmospheres but with a break beat edge if u know what i mean..
still, watch the myspace for fututre updates
cheers

Wouldn't worry about things sounding regressive, not all forward movements are necessarily good, so it makes sense to look back and take influence from where you like, it's a different sound so keep at it.

sounding regressive isn't the worst thing in the world, though either... sometimes it's nice to take a step back from what is going on, and re-visit an old sound.

Better than just following what's hip, you're more likely to find your own unique style if you take the best from all your influences. "Beau mot Plage" by Isolee combines elements of glitch, jazz, house, dub and god knows what else to create music that sounds timeless (and still one of my favourite tunes ever).

Trying to make music that sounds like everyone else is a dead end creatively, so big-ups for trying something different. I'm sure that a lot of music of all genres will be forgotten in a few years, the innovators are the ones that get remembered, not the imitators.

Trying to mimic things that you know work can be as big of a help as it can be a negative for you. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

learning to produce by copying others is pretty much the best way to learn to create the sounds that YOU want, when the time comes--but copying others will only get you so far... you have to be doing something unique to really make it.
