Vintage Ambience
Hi everyone, I'm back with a new song I just made. I feel like this is one of my best works yet and I'm confident that it doesn't suck. One of the reasons is that I got to download the Sonic Charge Cyclone and loaded an fxp full of chopped break samples and actually chopped my own breaks this time which is pretty cool. 
Yeah there is a bit of repetition, I know, but usually why that is because I couldn't think of anything else to put there in most places so I just left them there. But overall, this is pretty good.

I like the musical part. I'm not sure if the drums meshed up with it that well. Maybe pull them back in the mix with some space.

I'm guessing that means that the breaks were too loud and/or didn't fit the feel of the whole track.

I'm with fastlanephil on this one. The music side of things is perfectly fine and quite enjoyable to listen to. Although the drums are classic DnB style I don't feel the connection with the music and they seem out of place more than anything.

*Sigh" ok. I agree the Amen break chops are too much. Maybe a simpler modern DnB pattern would work if you know what I mean.

I like this. It has a great LTJ Bukem vibe to it. I also liked 80s Ambient Synthpop Thing.

I have just listened to Demon's Theme a couple of days ago and I was absolutely blown away how it was ahead of its time.
