Let's stfu Let's stfu

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I can't see why you name it lets stfu (assuming, of course, stfu still means 'shut the fuck up'... if they meaning changed, I didn't get the memo)...

I don't understand why a lot of the people here don't take instruments from albums and substitute them for the midi instruments... an actual string instrument for the main tune would carry so much better... there would be more body to it... I mean, its already interesting and held my ear for the full play through (which is hard to do... I only review the tracks I like)...

If I could make a suggestion... sample an actual electric violin with very mild distortion for that... even if you just get one note and up/down sample it for the whole tune... I think you would like the results.

I agree, I would very much like the results (possibly) but, limitations are ... well.. limiting.
One day I'll have more than just my trumpet/piano/guitar; even so.. I don't ever record because of my living condition.
All in due time though, '


Frustration feat. Bafana Frustration feat. Bafana

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Finally, a song with a percussion section that isn't entirely cut and pasted in... nice elements... I like the piano and strings, as there is so much on this site that is entirely synth sounding and metallic... I especially like the volume changes when the drums peak and ebb...

I'd like to hear more on this site that has the same thought put into it as this one has had... changes in mood, movement, intensity... this is a piece that tells a story... hell, music like this behind footage of , say, something like a baloon being dragged down the road by the wind would actually make that balloon's 'story' interesting.

You two make some interesting music... keep working together.

Well, I will certainly always welcome collab with Bafana. Great artist. And I'm happy to hear you think we worked well together ^_^


Victory - A Winner is You Victory - A Winner is You

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not at all what I expected from the title... I was expecting yet another 'fanfare' type of mix... break from the norm is a good thing...

The taste of it says 'maze puzzle background music' or 'map music' ... I can almost see the map for Mario 3 as I listen and close my eyes... but a little bit darker... or the end sequence and credits for a NES adventure... bubbly and happy, like it all turned out for the best, and the best was better than what was expected.



Noisebringer - Venture Noisebringer - Venture

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Totally brings back memories of my N64... you do very well with this musical medium... Its like Final Fantasy but with a lot more depth... now, I didn't even notice it was a loop until just now... It must have gone through about 3 times already and I just noticed... so this could do well in the background of one of the many adventure games featured here on Newgrounds...

For some reason, I can almost see an older style RPG character talking to a Lord or Lady about a daughter that ran away as being a mission I have to accept to move ahead in the game... I would venture to say I can see an icecave as part of the mission.



[NB] Layton's Nightmare [NB] Layton's Nightmare

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great Track... the start was a bit slow to build... but I liked it nonetheless...

What I gather from the chosen midi instruments... well, while it does sound like a mix between a track to some fantasy game like Zelda if all the enemies were robotic, and something that would be playing in some Macedonian dude's car on the way to a club (I'm Macedonian, by the way, so this is a good thing.)

Personally, I'd add a bit more pop with some bass kick... but this isn't necessarily the sound you were going for.

However, the chord progression (for lack of a better phrase) sounds more sad than horriffic... I imagine some chick crying over a boyfriend who left her more than an being chased... this, to me anyway, conflicts the instruments with the 'tune' as it were... I love conflict.

I would like to hear this again with samples of real instruments rather than the synthesized, though... I think you can add a lot more body to it if you boosted the bass... even with my headphones it sounded a bit more metallic than what I'm used to but I liked it nonetheless.

I'd like to hear more of what you come up with... and if you do decide to remix this again, I'd love to see where it goes.

This was an actual remix of the song "London 3" from professor layton and the unwound future, look it up, it's an amazing song! thanks for the review though.
And i'm actually working on a couple of projects at the moment although i'm not sure when any of them will be finished or even IF any of them will be finished.
Just generally because i experiment a lot and most of the time things don't quite turn out the way i want them to be.
