Description : 180 BPM ambient drum n cell. Melodic electric cello playing over dnb drums (all fast except for one 30 sec section). Drums are all manipulated loops. No acoustic drums so also no cymbals, just for a change. Various synths, plus some interesting sample-based sitar parts in the second half. A fun, far out track that feels like it should be deeper and better. Let me know what you think, good or bad.

    I like the feel of the track. The spaceyness and mysteriousness compliment the drums quite well. I would personally tone down the violin sound, and put some high end EQ on it, to make it sound more pleasant. The sampling and the alien really immersive you into the song, and just ends up sounding interesting. Good job :D

    Excellent track! I'm a bit of an ADD case & I listened to the whole thing. So that's really good. It reminds me of something by TuxedoMoon or Death in Vegas. (I love both) so you're in great company with this to my ears. Outstanding work sir!!!

    Hello.

    Sorry that there isn't bass wrapping around the beats. I don't really make drum n bass so this is just my slightly different attempt at that genre.

    No, it's probably not exactly the kind of dnb anyone is used to. There's not much drum n cell out there.

    Yes, some deep drops would probably help the track.

    I'm not quite sure what bass rolls are. I probably know but not by that name.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Hi, Nomad. I understand your concern about developing a more powerful ending. But from my perspective as a fresh listener I can totally understand how the track winds down with an improvised feeling over a steamy, India flavor groove. I love the sounds and your arrangement. Great to hear a track of yours again after some time off the site. Regards, Dan

    Thanks again for your appreciation.

    The ending just isn't good enough. A bit of wind down but nothing definitive or particularly interesting. Good endings are hard to do!

    Yes, I'm not on the site much these days because of a serious drop in my musicality and ability to produce decent music. I think I only uploaded 4 tracks last year.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    Hi StaticNomad,

    First i was curious to listen to this track when i saw "drum'n'bass". I didn't be desapointed: a melt between modern and ethnic... how i love the injection of oriental sounds in the second part!! this track is a real artistic performance! And the contrast between this energetic rhythm that turns 180bpm and the instruments that release a more aerial atmosphere, more vaporous, personally I love!
    Congratulations!

    PS: you noticed this time i wrote in english :)

    Merci pour les mots anglais!

    Yes, a nice meeting of modern and ethnic here. The oriental sounds (different sitars) in the second half are a fun surprise. Maybe I could have put some in the first half but it wasn't really necessary.

    Merci encore, Monsieur le Bleep!

    "Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream, and listen to the color of your dreams" (excerpts from Tomorrow Never Knows).

    The last song on the Beatles Revolver album was the first psychedelic rock music track ever recorded. How crazy it must have been for teens in 1966 to hear that for the first time. Of course like most of what the Beatles did, it laid the groundwork and inspired others to follow their example.

    By chance have you been hanging out on Carnaby street, hanging out at the Indica bookshop reading Timothy Leary, listening to Ravi Shankar and/or experimenting with LSD? (Ha ha) I would probably (hopefully) guess no, but listening to your music one could easily make the connection to the mystical and mind expansion era and nature from which it originates. Definitely a cool track here, with some interesting and wonderful sound composition. The synth work is amazing throughout especially those crazy modulated notes beginning around 3:45. I really dig the latter section of the track where you slow the tempo with the sitar. How are you doing the bass under that? That's some groovy shit bro. Whose doing anything on this level ? Wow. I don't know what Alien is making reference to but I'm not hearing it.

    Your such an innovative artist man. You could actually be the fifth Beatle, well I guess it would be the 6th Beatle (Pete Best original drummer). I mean your in the right spot there in London. By the way have you ever seen or actually met Paul or Ringo? I'm sure they would seriously dig your music.

    Love it bro, keep them coming man !

    Psychedelic Christmas greetings!

    I am not in fact the sixth Beatle, mostly because I was born 10 years after they disbanded. I’m sure if I’d been born 20 years before, I would have been in the group, probably teaching them how to make psychedelic drum n cell. Not sure how I would have knocked out dnb beats back in the 60s but I’d have found a way.

    There’s almost a ‘big beat’ (I mean the dance genre) drum sound on the exceptional Tomorrow Never Knows, which is still one of the greatest and most futuristic pieces of music ever recorded.

    Unsurprisingly, I’ve never met Paul or Ringo. The latter has lived in the US for years and speaks with what you might call a mid-Atlantic accent. Half English (Liverpudlian accent) and half American, especially when he says “and”. Would they like my music? No idea. They’d probably think it was at least OK, maybe nothing more. They might not appreciate the lack of vocals. We should find a way to ask them.

    I’ve been to Carnaby Street a few times but I don’t know if it’s considered cool or interesting anymore. But I can tell you that it’s virtually impossible to lock up a bike up to anything there. There’s not much pavement space and no bike racks so I had to lock the bike up elsewhere, then head back in. Amazing story, eh?

    This track still annoys me though it was fun to make, mostly in only a few days. It was made out of leftover parts from the last one, Seeds Of New Sins, so shares some of the same sounds (and drum loops). The “crazy modulated notes beginning around 3:45” synth came from that track though it sounds totally different in there and isn’t playing fast, arpeggiated patterns.

    “How are you doing the bass under that?”

    The answer is: very easily. There’s just one synth bass sound in the whole track so I just keep the bass going from the previous dnb sections, changing very little.

    “Whose doing anything on this level ?”

    Not really one for me to answer. Only me? 10 million others? Jimi Hendrix at his laptop in musical heaven? I have no idea.

    “I don't know what Alien is making reference to but I'm not hearing it.”

    I don’t really know what the hell I’m doing with mastering and fiddled about for quite a while with this. I know very little about EQ so just do my best with what my ears tell me.

    The last 30 secs or so of this aren’t really good enough. They should be bigger and better and more memorable but I couldn’t find a way.

    But I did enjoy the sitar stuff, celling it up and the dnb beats and am glad to hear you liked it so much.

    Thanks again!

    P.S. I have never taken LSD but I do own a sitar though it is merely collecting dust in my attic.

    Just do one track at a time with the eq. cut what's not necessary or used by another track.

    Thanks but I don't entirely understand the advice you're giving me.

    I'm saying that I take all the channels of the mix, group them together and put them through one limiter, which then goes to the master out of the project. The limiter may be what is causing the problem.

    I like the track, what I would suggest is some eq on the bass, the track is a little muddy imho.
    Some more technically inclined friends here may chime in with some more details :)

    Reply by StaticNomad

    Thanks.

    Yes, I may well have put too much limiting on the track, hence the muddiness. I'll try to go back and see if I can fix this. I wanted it loud and powerful but maybe I should take that limiting off entirely.

    I'm not sure.

Description : Before I start, I'd just like to thank all of the wonderful community members who help me beat my creative block with their advice on my other track. Not only was I able to beat it, but I was also able to gain a little more creative ideas. This will be the first track with a background story. This track takes place in Las Vegas Nevada. A man name John, is an ex drug addict and finds himself playing the slots. When he comes across this blue synthetic drug, just sitting in between two of the slot machines. Not being able to resist, he opens the bag and takes a huge hit. John's body instantly reacts to the drug, causing him to go into full on high mode. John starts kicking the machine he is at, throwing chairs at the machine causing sparks to erupt, evidently finding himself practically burning the casino down. John continues his "high" on the Las Vegas strip. Doing everything from knocking old women down to flashing at the police. Eventually causing John to get surrounded by cops, almost exactly when he starts coming out of his high. As the cops has John surrounded with his hands in the sky, John realizes he has some more drugs left, hanging out of his sleeve, he quickly sniffs the entire packet, causing time to slow down for John. John kicks the garbage on the right of him, hitting on of the three cops right the face. The other two cops then shoots at John, John has an instant reflex action and dodges both of the cops bullets. Before, taking them both down and finally doing some awesome parkour, on his way to his hotel room, to dodge other police. John eventually makes it home, sits on his couch smokes a joint and calls it a night.

Description : Came up with this DnB track for Halloween.
A tribute to the little speed demons called Pulse Eaters who frequently hide in the grass along dark stretches of highways. Waiting to jump onto speeding cars and motorcycles, to claim a victim and grab a thrill ride back into the depths. Drive slow, drive safe on Halloween or one just might take you for a ride you wont come back from.

I think this may be my last track in drum & bass/industrial/whatever you call it.
