Well, ok, lol, this was different, but before i begin, i will say diff in a good way, no worries lol...First 17 secs, wut id call the 'kinda intro' lol, not bad, but something that gets me used to the melody or a melody of some sort, then kinda develops into louder and more mixed middle and ends etc with sounds n samples surrounding the melody that catches ones ear...and lemme tell you, at first, i was like eh, this is ok, kinda tedious, but pretty dope, kinda somber, if it were a stuffed animal itd be Eyore from winnie the pooh lmfao...But then, it kept goin, with wut id guessed, more sounds etc throughout, but that somber melody bouncing around the beat with consistency never losing a beat or step, never sounding off, lol, very addicting actually...So easy to flow to, the bpm was so perfect with the tone and atmosphere...Now as far as cons, or critiques, id say somehow change it up even funkier, each 2nd or 4th 4-note groupings could be more distinctive with even the littlest of differences within the mixes-just make a sample unique to bend it to your will lol I used to copy, paste, clone etc, now i just make wutever sample/piano roll piece i come to while mixing unique if i think itll sound better or more rememberable with a difference within it..Even the tiniest bit of piano or violin, or vocal etc in the background could completely change a beat from being like a 5 or 6, to an 8-10! Its all about the earworm! Its good to have 'catchy tune' always on the mind, but catchy and earworm inducing are two separate categories lol..Catchy is good but not great-good at the time but not era lasting; catchy is 'MMM Bop' from the Hansons! lmfao 90's one hit wonders...possibly havent heard of em actually lol, but legendary is something beyond catchy, its an earworm...For days, it can live within your mind, especially when theres anything around you that reminds of you of it; it sticks in back of your brain for hours, days, weeks even...something like 'Ambitionz of a Rider', or beat wise, 'Requiem for a Dream' or more recently, GoT Theme, or Westworld Theme by Ramin Djawadi...And even the simplest drum&bass beat loop can become the greatest beat simply by mixing it with atleast one other sound in a very catchy way. I think this had potential to be a great beat, but in the end, as addicting and catchy as it is, there isnt enough popping out or going on for me to immediately wanna listen again...All in all, good job though! I do like it, thumbs up, keep producing!@shocro Interesting beat, quite unusual, well mixed. The only "so-so" thing for me was these bells, quite sharp on ears.
@Alejandro cool beat, like that. I think snare could've been softer, more spacious, that's what I usually hear on West Coast type of beats, but it's a matter of taste.
Here is my track, rock type of beat, simple - few guitars and drums. Any feedback appreciated.
