Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Funked up

Man, this is a really great listen. I haven't been to this page for ages but this has got me listening again.
Is the guitar sampled? cause the chords are great. Some of the synths are a bit cheesy but overall the song travels nicely.
Love the disco strings that make an appearance too. The bass should lead into something more at the end, it leaves you hanging too much
Nice work.

Why thank kind sir. I made the guitar on the computer. Sadly i can't play guitar like that. I kinda thought the synths were a bit cheesy but the happy music fans will like it, and the bass leaving you hanging..... well i like to leave listeners hanging sometimes cuz i'm cool like that. thanks for the rev. ttyl

Nice sounds man

I like the synths you were using but I think some of the drums you were using didn't quite go together. That really fat kick you use goes with the first bass line but the snare doesn't match, it sounds like a live rock drum kit. maybe use the equiliser on it or something?
I like the simple second bass line over the top, maybe expand it out a little. Nice work anyways

Oh this is cool

Really nice song, awesome bass again. I think the xylophone really makes it stand out as something different, with the usual instruments supporting perfectly.
I didn't see the dnb drums coming in but when they did I could see they were always meant to. The melody is really solid but the production is top notch as well, sounds like something from a good drum n bass compilation. I like it

Great stuff

Really smooth, but still with a really catchy edge. Is this recorded live or through a computer? Im not really up to scratch with my knowledge of funk but this sounds pretty jazzy. I like how the bassline is just funky, but the keyboard chords have a different mood, as does the guitar, which fills the song out not just in the technical sound but in the feel as well. Ill check out some more of your stuff

sorohanro responds:

well, first, thanx
for me, funk is that music started by James Brown and go to Jamiroqai and Nils Landgren Funk Unit...
that electronic funk that i don't understand have nothing to do with real funk... i think
as for "how i did it" is with some drum loops and some real guitars(by me , the trumpet player...he he)
i was way too lazy to record trumpets, so everything else is... keyboard (i would say Reason...but not free publicity)
thanx again for reviewing my stuff

Nice and dark

Like the last guy said, its a nice mix of industrial and house. I liked the high hat and lo-fi tapping(?) at the beginning, I thought you could have used it a little more, maybe drawn out the intro and introduced the instruments and effects slower for more atmosphere?
Again, the instruments are quality, no presets untouched from what I can hear. And the glitches have improved 100%, they've become fully fledged members of your arsenal.

liking the synth lines

Hey DSMagnum,
I thought the melody in this was solid, Love synth chords played like that. It would be cool if there were some fx, either in the background or on some oof the instruments, just to add some extra atmosphere.
Nice song.


DSMagnum responds:

Maybe I could've used some pads? That would've given it more of an etheral feel. I should try that in my next song.

Thanks for the review. :)

Geez man,

I cant imagine your fitting much else into your days, these tracks sound like they'd take a mortal weeks to make. I like how youve nurtured your randomness into something great, this is so diverse. Im considering getting ableton man, I dont know how to get sounds anything like this in reason. your an ambassador for live.
keep em coming


dj-padman1 responds:

You'd love Live man. With reason its a bit difficult (impossible?) to really mess with audio within the program. live makes it a snap.
Catch ya.

divercity

Hey padman, whats been happening. good to see the tunes flowing freely. Haven't been round here for a while, you've been working hard in the holidays.
Love the whole intro and beginning section. Im always impressed by the sound and drum choices.
The song changes up a lot but I thought the melody was a bit scattered towards the end, like the pads and lead were trying to go in different directions? definately a chem. bros. feel in there, your on the right track.
Ill do my best to keep up the reviews, Ive got a new song or two to put up too.
BTW, check out alchemy, an SBS radio station. their website is asking for producers to submit stuff. Give them what they want, they're gagging for it.


dj-padman1 responds:

cheers bigears. long time no see. Killer track by the way, your latest. Anyone reading this I encourage you to check it out.
Thanks for your input. Did I have pads in the end? man, I cant remember now, I'll have to revisit that one.
SBS? That could be the ticket! We should both launch an all out blitz on them.
Thanks for the lead KaiSun.
