According to soundcloud this is Microhouse, not sure exactly what that means but I'm running with it! :tu:

In any case, here's two new tracks I'm working on at the moment. I think they're mostly there save for some mixing and minor tweaks. Curious to hear what you guys think!

Enjoy!

i enjoyed listening to both tracks ...
you get high marks for your production values ...
some unusual and effective sound choices , as well ...

both tracks show the type of restraint that i find admirable ,
in that you have given each element room to exist within the mix ...

transit :
you had me until the introduction of the claps , at the outro ...
for me , they took the track from the sublime to the mundane ...
the diffusion on the bass/kick could be dialed back perhaps ...

sirens :
no escaping the claps here ; they are with us from the get go ...
just not my thing i guess ...the introduction of the arp doesn't mesh well ;
it enters abruptly , adds nothing , then goes away ...
the outro from that point on is quite cool ...

overall , very good work ...

Transit has interesting sounds and rhythms. A new twist on House.

Great stuff but maybe go easier on the reverb?

Thanks guys! Glad you liked it.. never quite sure where to 'place' my music so it's always good to know it resonates with some people at least!

Yup, with me you're stuck with claps for now.. love them, even those gaudy dubstep superclaps!
