i'm not a big fan of shuffly rhythms really, i'd rather just get to the point and do something with a triplet rhythm if anything. gonna write a few of those tracks for this new release actually. kinda gives things a lutz rahn / jean michel jarre vibe, or something.
i think the mix is quite bassey, it sounds a little muddy down there.
yeah, most of my stuff lately has been pretty muddy. for previous work it's been intentional (a cloudy, psychedelic sound) but i've gotta try to shake that somehow.
think i need to take some of the low frequencies out of the bass synths maybe? i listened to empire of the sun on the way to work today (shut up ) and realised most of the bass comes from the bassdrum, while the bassline is a bit more subdued.. i guess that makes sense, since the drums are what would propel the song on a dancefloor. so i'll give that a try.
as for the sequence, it's been through a few iterations, i like the way it sounds going into the ambient section at the moment, that chord change is pretty dramatic, haha. but yeah, i'm thinking of having it go back into the chords of the first section at the end, to tie it together instead of being super progressive. and i'll probably add some drums in the ambient section as well.
