Not the sort of tune I'd buy or listen to normally Neil, but for the genre you're working in it's of very decent quality. The drum programming in particular is excellent.

Your music (and the darkness it emotes) seem very a thematic/soundtrack kinda vibe.. this wouldn't be out of place in a movie reflecting a scene that visually mirrored the music (or vice versa..).

Dare I say, touches of Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Goldie and Massive Attack etc...

reminds me of an old jungle tune, think it was "warhead" very dark like Modz1 says. more of a house man myself so cant really comment further. have to say though, is it me but it sounds at a few points like the bass clips and distorts ever so slightly? tbh i think if it does soundcloud is to blame, i find the tracks on SC change when uploaded. will this be getting a release or is it a personal thing?

Thanks for the comments guys.
If the bass is clipping it must definitely be soundcloud. Damn it.
I spent ages trying to get the levels just right...
As for getting a release, well obviously that would be great but at the
moment i'm just trying to get as many people as possible to hear my stuff.
Modz1, thanks for the compliment on my drum programming. It's something
i get very deep into and rather obsessed about.

Once again, thanks for the feedback.

Neil

I like this Neil. Adding to the comments of my exteemed colleagues I would say that it is positively rich and atmospheric and sounds like a lot of work went into it. Not a dance tune at all - but then not all we produce need be. I agree with Modz1 on the soundtrack type idea. Well done. I really like it.

Yes. Very cinematic. Plenty of energy. Nice.

Default very cinematic...

for rich and cinematic...

definately can see this used in a soundtrack....

i'm more of a "guitar" music dude so can't really say much more but well done...

very dark with out being a big cliche... the percussion or glitchy noises that come in later a kinda aggresive...

interesting...

Six minutes 43 seconds of an interesting and enjoyable journey. It has curious contrasts of ambient trance and heavy trance. I have limited exposure to this kind of music so when I say it makes me think of the Ozric Tentacles it probably says more about what I've listened to than it does about your music, but the whole feel and complexity of what you are doing does remind me of the Ozrics.

Interesting. Your stuff obviously differs a lot from the Ozrics who are an instrumental band but there was something about your rhythm and overall mood that made me think they might have been included in your listening at some point.

I spent a fair bit of time listening to the Ozrics and I can name a couple of albums, but don't ask me what decade that was, my memory is hazy too
