I dig 'bang'... the beats have a nice colouring to it. Sounds like the whole mix has been mixed to tape?

thanks guys, glad you like them  :music:

no tapes here, just renoise. I lowered the bitrate of the samples to 8bit 11-22hz and turned interpolation off to get the vintage tracker vibe.

I don't listen to that much jungle/breakcore anymore, but after having listened to this I kinda feel like I should. The only thing missing is a proper peak where the whole thing goes fucking nuts ;D

this is my 5th track for weeklybeats and I'm very happy with how it turned out. been listening and writing loads of jungle lately, hugely inspired by green bay wax & lucky muffin releases.

 

thanks to anyone who takes time to listen & feedback is always appreciated  :beer:

^It's cool, beat programming-wise and jungle'y for sure, but I miss tension, something that would make me come back to this more often. The floaty delayed synthbits are reminiscent of old, but not much of a catchy hook imo, or unique. Perhaps some vocals, bassline / melodies, pads could spice things up, but then it be something else :) ...it's nice to see people still rinsing the amens, you have the skills to be on Green bay I think  :beer: , ever sent out a demo?

yeah pretty cool beat programming :thumbsup:

but still missing something eq wise on those loops, and also what jonas said, some catchy melody or riff... anyway you got what it takes, keep up!

thanks guys, really appreciate feedback  :biggrin:  agreed, I need to work on atmospheres & melody, they're not my strong suit. it's much more fun to me to mash amens than write melodies, lol

 

 ...it's nice to see people still rinsing the amens, you have the skills to be on Green bay I think  :beer: , ever sent out a demo?  

 

yeah in my dreams lol, I need to buy an amiga before I'm worthy of a release on gbw  :biggrin: phineus & kid lib are top notch, every track from them is pure quality. they're huge inspirations. I've never sent a demo anywhere. I love my tracks, but I don't think they're as good as they could be yet. maybe in the future i'll toss a few out there

my 7th track for weekly beats - a bouncy lil chiptune. i was writing more jungle, but i wasn't really feeling it once sunday hit. took an old melody that i did by the shore and made a full track out of it. pretty glad i did cause this tune's a bunch better that what i made all week imo

 

thanks to all listeners & feedback is very welcome  :music:

cool melodies, honestly for me the beats don't do it justice, mix these melodies with your jungle breaks. ;)

This one is good.

 

That amen sequencing is very tasty.

 

I really like the warm saturation on everything you've got going

thanks for the feedback guys :beer:

 

cool melodies, honestly for me the beats don't do it justice, mix these melodies with your jungle breaks. ;)

that track was originally a chipbreak/jungle loop, but i took out the breaks cause i wanted to try something different. could be fun to do another jungle mix of it later on. i deleted off soundcloud by accident the other day, but it's still on weeklybeats just for future reference: https://weeklybeats....sic/seagull-bay

 

and here's a track i've done over the last week:

Listen on Soundcloud.com

 

had the week off for spring break, so i spent a load of time with this one. any & all feedback is greatly appreciated  :beer:

Musically not bad just could do with a bit more omph. Beats are cool again. Will keep an eye on your stuff. Do you use Ableton for cutting up breaks?

thanks, i tried to focus more on the overall song structure/progression with that one rather than doing more amen slicing. everything's done in renoise, it's sample editor is top notch. thanks for listening  :beer:

Keep it rollin' has some tidy, tidy breaks man well done!

 

In that bit in the middle where the bass hits start firing off i'd appreciate something else going on above the mix ... some washed out chords and field recordings always floats my boat.

 

Beat work towards the end of the track is really good and i'd love to hear you go flat out on a track

awesome beat work, but i'd like to hear more going on outside of breaks, such as some melodies, sound fx, or vocal work.  that said, i really enjoyed listening.

 

edit:  the attention to detail in "arrow of time" is really nice.
