  1. Hi folks, Been ages since I posted anything! Mostly because I've been making just awful rubbish lately. But I finally managed to make something I do actually like! https://soundcloud.com/mike-laraman/space-noodles I did this in a 24hour music session for no reason at all! Feedback welcome Thank youuuuu! xx
  2. Yes, I've been told that the track could use 'more wubs'... I'll bear that in mind for my next foray into dubstep Thanks for the comments re the snare and bass. Any idea what the 'something' might be that the bass is lacking? Not sure what I need to do to improve that. Thanks for listening!
  3. Zero feedback on the WIP, oh well... went ahead and finished it up anyway, this is the final version Hope you enjoy it...
  4. Hey hey, been working on a little dubsteppy/brosteppy track lately that I'd love some feedback on. The mixing isn't finalised and it's half done, but any constructive comments? I really like how this one is coming together, I generally think I pretty much suck at dubstep. I'll own up right now and say that it follows some dubstep conventions, I'm enjoying being okay with that [link removed, see below for final version] Thank youuuuu Mike
  5. Very happy to see Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire on OCR!! I've been humming their Magnet Man song for about a year >.<
  6. Oh, well... constructive comments did not seem to be forthcoming, so I went with my gut, finished it up and uploaded it http://soundcloud.com/the-radical-sifu/dr-dre-feat-skylar-grey-i-need Any issues with it... TOO BAD! I don't care any more
  7. This is delicious! Can I get a download link anywhere?? This is fresh as hell I hope the title is an allusion to Master Of The Flying Guillotine? I love that movie edit: n/m, I found it... I'm slow
  8. Heyy again guys, here's a new version! Mostly just needs an ending and maybe a few extra glitch effects n' stuff. I've boosted the bass and played around with a lot of the sounds to make it punch harder in general http://www.chaffcitycomic.com/ineedadoctor_wip2.mp3 Feedback hugely appreciated before I wrap it up!!!
  9. Thanks buddy! I'll see if I can get that bass up in future iterations of the mix.
  10. Hey guys, here's something I've been working on lately, a little bootleg remix with some funk/hiphop/dub/glitch stuff in it. It's nowhere near completion but it could sure use some feedback if anyone would be so kind?? Thank youuuu (It might be terrible, I'm not sure) UPADTE 11/10/11: it's finished, here's the link http://soundcloud.com/the-radical-sifu/dr-dre-feat-skylar-grey-i-need
  11. Just a quick update to say that I just found out... I WON THE FREAKING COMPETITION 8O8-O8-O8-O OH. MY. GOD
  12. I like this! The choir sound is really nice and warm in particular. I actually think this might benefit from being extended; I think you could take the idea further. It kind of sounds like the whole thing is an intro to something, at least to me. But either way, sounds nice!
  13. http://soundcloud.com/the-radical-sifu/rizzle-kicks-down-with-the ( original: )The band were running a remix contest, so I submitted this the other day. I'm not good enough to win but it was fun anyway. What do you guys reckon? There's a few things I'm not happy with but yeah... I hate deadlines I've never really done anything with sample cutup/glitch effects before so I was basically making this up as I went along.
  14. Very nice clean sound and some good samples/synths. One or two of them sound a little weedy (ie near the end there is a snare roll that sounds a bit thin, and the lead that plays before it sounds kind of flat and basic). Mixing-wise, you use the stereo field well and a lot of your effects processing is spot-on. However I do feel the mix is a bit bass-heavy, it kind of gives me a mini headache after a while, and I think maybe the kick bumps a little TOO strong. See what you can do with it Only other thing is that drop-off/filter-back-in thing is very abrupt and doesn't feel right. The filter-back-in is fine, it's just the drop-off that's too sharp. If you can make that drop feel a little more natural, it will be awesome.
  15. Try to make the individual instruments more distinct. During the latter half of the piece it starts to sound a little muddy especially with the low brass. (Panning will help clean the sound up, and also, EQ everything). Also, experiment with dynamics and humanising. Everything sounds too perfect and sequenced right now. Very nice samples for the zero budget however!!
  16. Thanks for the feedback, man! Muchly appreciated. Huh, loud drums? They shouldn't be any louder at that point than they are throughout the track. The drums are pretty consistent throughout, apart from the section 1:23 > 1:52 and again at the end, where they dip a little and the snare sample becomes a little softer. So the snare does get louder at the point you mention, but it only comes back up the level it was at in the first place, if you see what I mean. Interesting that you had an issue with it. I'll look into that
  17. So, finished up one of the tracks I was working on. I can't get it to the point where I'm 100% happy with it, but eh. I think it can fend for itself in the big world now. http://soundcloud.com/the-radical-sifu/the-radical-sifu-city-rollin Kind of a funky upbeat/chillout nu-jazz/hiphop thing. Hope you dig it.
  18. This is amazing! I've listened to this about a jillion times already and it's perfect. (It's also great for drawing comics to!)
  19. Good stuff! I especially love the part at 1:46, although I was a little disappointed in the end because I felt that that section was building towards something huge that never quite transpired...
  20. Just a quick original thing as a break from game mixes. http://soundcloud.com/the-radical-sifu/chillin-on-the-moon
