    Love the intro. The more frantic parts makes me think about old school robots fighting. The drum & bass hits hard. It's a drum & bass track, so yeah. Great job all the way round man.

    I've always felt that way about the newer Drum And Bass. Like old robots fighting. I love it!

    Thanks for listening and commenting. I appreciate it.

    Take care.

    Dark and unsetteling tone is quite strong in this and I loved it! Usually Drum&Bass is not my cup of tea, but this sounds wonderful. Crunchy bass makes me want bigger subwoofer tho. :D
    Amazing work mate!

    Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    I've always liked Drum & Bass, but I didn't start getting into producing it until recently. I'm kind of having fun with it.

    Thanks for the listen and the comment.

    Take care.

    This is absolutely sinister.. I LOVE IT! so much tension and the vocal samples affect the mood perfectly! Well done, seriously. I hope I can make something that makes me feel like this does some day. Thanks for sharing, and keep up the dark work!

    Dark is what I do! I just listened to your 80s wave tune, and commented. I was impressed, I don't think it would be too hard for you to delve into something this dark. It would be your own flare, but you seem to have what it takes as far as composing and mixing.

    Thank you again, for taking the time to listen and comment. I appreciate it.

    Take care.

    Definitively cinematic quality, shakers are a bit hard on the ear, but appropriate given the context. Mumbles and hums are very Aphex Twin. Liking the music box revisits, nice work, great synth sound.

    Thanks, man. I appreciate it.

    " shakers are a bit hard on the ear"

    That was the part I wasn't 100% on. But since this track was made with all recycled synths and sounds that I made for other tracks, except the kid's vocal samples, I wasn't too terribly worried about it. It would have been different if I had started this thing from bare bones.

    I appreciate your critique. Thanks again.

    Take care.

    Its very hard to typing the comment with my head going left to right and up and down but i will give it a try. I love the mood you set with the intro. It could be the backing music of a good horror movie. Then when the dnb kicks in the first time, it completely turns the track around without sounding messy at all. The 2nd part you hear the guitars and glitches doing their thing which keep you drowned into the dark tunes as we know from you. All those little FX details that you put in shows your talent for beatmaking. I cant really give you any critic as I think the track is right there where it should be.

    Very creative piece ValeDrive, the start had me a lil freaked out, started watching shadows from across the room..Nice work.

    Reply by ValveDriver

    BeatMaker, how are you?

    If it freaked you out and started watching shadows, then I did my job correctly! HA! That was exactly what I was going for. Creepy and dark. But that's what most of my electronic music is. Creepy and dark. There was a time a few years back where I was kind of known here for my dark tunes. I'm glad you like it.

    Thanks for listening, and commenting. I appreciate it.

    Take care.

    This track is not normal that good!! how you do that from slow scary to almost haevy metal or something. i love the part from 2:15 so cool!!!

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Rita, hello!

    I think the fact that I've listened to heavy metal since about 1985 has a lot to do with it. In heavy metal, there are often breaks where it goes from heavily distorted and loud, to clean and quieter. It kind of works as a break for the listeners ears. It lets you catch up and breathe for a second before getting back into the pounding. I incorporate that theory into all the music I do.

    I really dig the part at 2:15, too.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for leaving kind words. I appreciate it.

    Take care.

    I thought the intro was great, it set the mood, was a bit cinematic and creepy as hell. The fast parts were a stark difference and got the heart pounding. I like the Children of the Corn 2021 idea, ha!(cream corn this time)

    I agree, feels like a chase when it gets going and with the mumbling, it sorta distracts from trying to get away faster.

    Well put together idea. Cinematic to me. Would love to hear this performed in a club and get to physically feel the PA pounding.

    Wayne, how are ya, man? Well I hope.

    Thanks you for listening and commenting. I appreciate it!

    I started making digital music back around '99. That whole time I have always been told that it sounds cinematic, or "soundtracky". I guess maybe because I use a lot of ambient sounds and audio clips, and I don't generally follow the standard song formula. Who knows? Either way, as long as people like it, I'm okay with it.

    "Children Of The Cream Corn: Welcome to the gRave!". Glow sticks and machetes, Pacifiers and scythes!

    Thanks again, Wayne. Have a good one, and take care.

    Altin, thanks for taking the time to listen, comment, and fav! I appreciate that.

    When it comes to putting music together, I have always had a near impossible time trying to get minimal. My brain just keeps saying, ADD MORE!! Ha!

    Thank you again, and take care.

    Brutal cool ... if I remember well, I said once before that your electro works are nearly metal stuffs ... here too, if we put a distorted guitar in the song, these themes would scream ... :-)
    and based on the best dnb song of 2019, luckily you're far from it ...
    fistbump, Danke

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Danke, how are you doing? I hope all is well in your camp.

    I suppose that living in Heavy Metal since 1985 is probably why. I've been a die-hard metal fan my whole life. I love the dark D&B because it does have some of the same attitude and raw aggression that metal has.

    I started out with some distorted guitar, but it didn't mix well with the distorted bass synths. I couldn't get it to sit clear, so I scrapped it and rewrote some of the sections.

    As always, brother, it's good to hear from you, and thank you for the kind words.

    Take care, my friend.

    Aces Mate. Belongs in a horror vid-game and or movie. Like a bunch of ravers chasing you through a cornfield carrying scythes and pacifiers.

    Children Of The Corn: Reboot 2021. I'd watch it. The original one did NOT hold up over time, but it still holds nostalgic value for me. Unlike Maximum Overdrive. I LOVED that movie when it came out. I saw that it was on Netflix awhile back. I made it about 4 minutes in and couldn't do anymore. HA!

    Take care, brother.

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.
