You did a pretty good job with the sound overall. I felt the keys at 1:48 didn't quite fit and there was a little bit too much wow for my taste, but other than that I liked it.
I tried my hardest to make it sound good with the free samples I found. But thanks, it was intended to sound like some bedroom producer sent their mix to some pirate radio station and they just made it on the spot, but that's really how I make music (as a hobby regardless) anyway.
As someone else commented, the beats were perhaps too upfront in the clean version, and it kinda broke the illusion. However, I totally get it. I heard tons of stuff around that time that had been crudely assembled and passed around friends. It's not stuff that would have made it to clubs, but it was played on pirate radio stations. And if it was your intention to capture that vibe, then I think you did a good job.
Yes that was my intention thanks
Kinda surprised that this was a US thing. I thought the real grimy stuff never really hit, elsewhere. Not at that time, at least
I'm American yes, but I'm inspired by British music of the 90s and I did quite a bit of research of jungle/drum n bass by going on YouTube, Wikipedia and all that. I think an example of this would be MSX FM from GTA 3 and Liberty City Stories, where they're emulations of British pirate radio stations from the UK but put in video games. Rockstar North had good taste in music and it carried on through me lol.
