Rain? Rain?

Rated 5 / 5 stars

It doesn't sound like rain to me. It sounds like you're walking around some ancient library filled with magic books or something

I like that bass pliddle jawn that comes in at 0:22

Feelin' the jingles. Some reverb on them would've been cool. The chops just suddenly start and stop, which is cool but not like organic. Like I'm teleporting around instead of just walking around

Dig the drums, got a nice ramshackle boombap feel to them

Rated 5 / 5 stars

what do you mean by "flag it"?

I dig the goofy triplet rhythms in the plinky sounding instrument. They're definitely not eighth notes or whatever, they got a lot of swing to them

Those drum noises are cool too. I really dug the bottle falling off a desk at 0:46, and the sudden fall at 0:11 (na na na na na na)

That squirrelly Tyler synth in the intro -- beep bee beeeeep beeeep BWWWWWWWWeeep

xxxZigZagxxx responds:

A lot of songs lately I've been following the song title name scheme of "f@#$/ it" so this was just following that trend.

Yes those are some swingy synths

Thanks for your appreciation. I use some strangely real samples...

Yes that synth at the begin! I could have left that as a beat to be honest. Sounds rappable.

Thx phosphorus

Does It Count Does It Count

Rated 5 / 5 stars

That wah wah thing at 0:46 was cooooool.

That chromatic guitar riff is pretty unsettling. Dig the panning you do on it.

The piano at 1:34 was Shadowesque. Loved the tape stop on it before the drums came back in.

That clap by itself is a tad harsh on the ears, but when it's mixed in with the rest of the drums it sounds fine.

Hats had a cool rhythm to them.

BOULLIE responds:

Yo I made something using your Uno track. Kind of an ode to my city. I'll let you know if I post it or not

Thanks for reviewing

Drums and bass sound dope. At 3:27, when that voice (dead center, a tad nasal, almost sounds like a duck) sounds slid up, it sounded kinda off to me. Like it should've went up to a higher note or something. That was the only thing that sounded off to me. This track was way cool.

xxxZigZagxxx responds:

Thanks phospho. I think I know the one you're talking about. That little riff haha. Thanks for the kind words, my friend. :D

Dig the drums. Especially that crash when the drums come in. Did you layer some extra kicks to give some extra oomph, or was that how the sample sounded originally? It sounds great.

Horns were great. Just the right volume (for me, anyway).

Dug the chops.

B-RadGfromOV responds:

The drum pattern is mostly rearranged, sticking more kicks inbetween but the oomph was just from messing with the eq on the sample. I like these drums a lot too, I've used this sample twice recently, the other was Mood though from a different part of the drums.

Thanks for the listen.

SOV - Sewage 3. SOV - Sewage 3.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I listened to all 4 of these SOV tracks you put out today, and this one's probably my fav. The two things I really dig:
0:22 -- the high pitched clinky motif that sounds like it has some echo on there.

1:14 -- Those really regal sounding chord stabs. This music sounds more like a castle/kingdom than a sewer. Must be a very luxurious sewer!

Calamaistr responds:

The highly pitched motif was supposed to portray rats and mice in the sewers.
The chord stabs makes the track a bit more jazzy, ive always done manual echoes in my chiptune work however. In fact ive never used a single non manual effect. :)

Its been a long time ago since i made this now though, hopefully ill be able to do stuff like this again in the future, had a rough time inbetween.. and though my knowledge of music has even evolved as i play alot of guitar these days im not always confident enough i can reproduce this, then again i never thought i could produce this when i did either, always felt musical ideas just flew me by and i was intelligent enough to recognice and capture it. :) Thanks for your review. -cal.

I'm out of the loop on this meme. Who is Henrik?

Dig the bassline. Lots of cool drum sounds too.

xxxZigZagxxx responds:

Oh lol. It's not a meme. I'm just channeling a musical artist called Henrik the Artist... maybe too much. Thx for the comments, phospho!

Smallest Whale Smallest Whale

Sorry for your loss, man.

I love the way the reverb in the intro melts away and gets bone dry for the verse.

The extra riffs during the chorus sound really cool.

Dug the guitar solo.

Really liked the ending.

This drum pattern is amazing.

Intro sounds like dogs barking. A tad strange. Sample or synth?

0:27 is great. Lots of great sequences and arpeggios.

The chorus part with the french horn/bassoon and the other synths in the back sounds really lush.

1:19 is great. Dig that synth by itself. Sounds cavernous.

1:57 is nuts. The piano that comes in hits some rhythmic spots that aren't hit by the other instruments, and it sounds really surprising.

Throughout I hear this cool noise that sounds like a coin falling out of a couch. It works really well. I think maybe it could be a tad lower in volume, and repeated half as often so it doesn't draw as much attention to itself, but it does sound reeeeeeally cool.

Snare is a tad dry, reverb-wise. Otherwise, I seriously dig this beat.

xxxZigZagxxx responds:

Thanks phospho! You're always complimenting me drums. I get the hint ;)

It's a sample tuned at the "dogs barking" portion. A yelp sample I think, twisted by FX.

The arpeggios are goooooood I agree and I dunno how to replicate them but I'll have to study this accident further

1:57 is pretty nuts, I agree... I was wondering if it was a little too overbearing but glad to hear you enjoy it.

Gotcha about the coin. I'll be sure to look at that ailment.

Thanks for the pros'n'cons. Thanks for srsly digging beat. Thanks for everythin. <3
