My Feedback

Music - 7.5
Instruments - 8
Performance - 8
Mix - 7.5

Overall - 7.75

Comments: Love the wah bass. Appears to be a loop for about half the track. Then it seems to drift into some subtle variations before resuming. I guess this is kind of a beat? Personal preferences, top line and kick to cut through a little more. Have you considered adding some kind of rap or lead line to this track? Kind of screams out for it.

a tad sub-bass heavy, making the low end muddy. i do like the percussion. lower that bass and the high end will cut through better as well.

Many thanks for listening and advice, had a little listen to Baby Cart/Lone wolf and cub/ Shogun assassin this morning and added a few bits and pieces, plus dropped the bass to around 8 and increased DRM to 10.
Thanks to both of you for the tips and advice, hope it sounds better :D

Any comparison to Nightmares on Wax is :tu: still dig out the old stuff when I get a chance
This was a hark back to those early days

And a lot of the early Depth Charge, Mr Kirk etc was my GOTO in my roller disco days :)
So I've been attempting to imitate using freeware synthesisers instead of samples.
Not sure how successful, but can only try.
Rainy days, I remember them :D

Whilst listening to this, I kept seeing images from Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" in my mind's eye. I guess that would make this suitable for some sort of OST application.

Good work :)

Yeah, listening this leads me into a good meditative mood,
especially the repeating "bass-morf" is very prominent.
The last third changes a little - here you break
the meditative flow for a short time.

Nice relaxing groove - good to listen. :tu:
Are drunken monkey like this? :clap:

The mediative bit :D
The drunken monkey style, is me trying to externalise my own feeling and attitude. I sometimes picture myself as a bit loose in terms of what I babble on about :clown: and still feel that my balance in life is better than it really is :dog: :dog: and I'm very proud of my tails, I tells, to you and whoever will listen :lol:

Oh, & often I talk gibberish/a lot of bollox, but you may have already noticed that :)

Plus, I very much likey the old kungfu films 8)

If Funk Monkey wasn't taken a million times i would say Drunk Funk Monkey lol.

Good bassline but too repetitive, IMHO. i see you switched it up, but if you tossed them back and forth earlier i wouldn't have grinded my teeth making myself listen to it :( sorry, no offense, justa lesson i have learned after being called a newb for being too repetitive so many times,.

Strong style you have, i like the control you have but wild sense of tonality.

All in all, i would really enjoy this more if the basslines were swapped back and forth, possibly with a drop every 45 seconds or so, at the end you drop it and i feel you could just copy/paste that into the after-intro and mid-section and make it feel more alive.

Overall great Concept, hope you don't take offense, my suggestions have been praised by a lot of people in Image-Line Forums for doing drops and filter sweeps, so i suggest you do the same. Cheers m8
