dreamy atmos, good...

benga [be] - 16 years ago

Nice ambiance, smooth beat, dreamy atmos indeed. Personally I would have seen more progression in the track. In my mind the track loses a bit interest after 2 min : the second half is just a repetition of the melo and the beat. Why note make some beat and melo variations from that moment ? Just my thoughts ;-)

gozno [be] - 16 years ago

very calm and smoothing music...this is really nice mr strekie

Doorchaser [be] - 16 years ago

Wow, I really hear that progression you made in sound and production. This is a Majestic track. It's instant fav!!!

Made yesterday he? Really impressed me is!!

eckhart [be] - 16 years ago

nice work.. but a bit empty i think an uplifting string-melody would be nice! and i'd do something more with that extra snare. nice start tho

brandtkalk [be] - 16 years ago

yes an other good one Mr strekie!
just your style, just and simple!
peace! :)

Voxcoder [be] - 16 years ago

kornie [be] - 15 years ago

good one...

quioui [be] - 15 years ago

still dig this track a lot.. looking forward to play with you in depot


HarryPoppins [be] - 15 years ago

really nice! the melody could be louder.. and maybe there is some sort of backgroundnoise missing; like bvb pchhhhhhhhht or summn like that. goe nummer

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

you re right benga i should make some variations

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

yeah harry, i could do the melody louder, good idea

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

anybody has some other tips to make this song better?

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

it can also be listened to in dan droff his mixotic mix

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

meutn [be] - 15 years ago

I'd love to be there but i'm not sure yet if i'll be able to come, will try anyways :))

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

you have some ideas to improve this song?

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

this song is in sets from people i don t know

Swan [be] - 15 years ago

this deseves to be in the top 50!!!!

Swan [be] - 15 years ago


i agree with people saying it neeeds something more tho, like at the 1.55 mark. some strings?

Swan [be] - 15 years ago

maybe a voice or some spoken words? tricky to include tho

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

you are absolutely right. i always have too little elements in my songs, but for playing live that s not much of a problem, people don t seem to hear

Swan [be] - 15 years ago

what you could do is adding simple noises and modulate them, like white noise and play with cutoof, that'll make a nice wind feeling and will add some desolate feeling to the track

Swan [be] - 15 years ago

*desolation effect*

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

but this song comes from a time where i used too much presets...
my new live will include more self designed sounds

Swan [be] - 15 years ago

when is the next one? i mean liveact.

strekie [be] - 15 years ago

end of march @ depot, leuven

brandtkalk [be] - 15 years ago

yo mr Strekie!
the majority of your work deserve to be in top 50! this song requires of public to take time to listen! one should not doubt you! c'est un tube cette chanson "en français" do not compromize stay as you are! ;)

brandtkalk [be] - 15 years ago

nice track! hehe

liquidbass [be] - 15 years ago

what shall I comment about?

The song or the comment section?????

I go for the music:

coz the music is beautifull... I think its coz of you Strekie that I started listening idm from time to time.

Erophin [be] - 15 years ago

nice one ! it sounds like track 5 of album 'ae' from autechre...

Doorchaser [be] - 15 years ago

I think that album is called "incunabula" and yeh I totally get into the nineties vibe of this song and AE

hosmOz [be] - 15 years ago

i really miss some work on the beat, some groove on it...i know this is not the point of the track but it could give a higher sensitive feeling...
great strekie keep working :)

Skip [be] - 14 years ago

I have lots of respect for people who can translate emotions into music.To be precise,that is deeper ,more personal,hidden-like emotions.
I think that has something verry honest and beautifull.
About the beatwork...pffft,this is one of those typical cases where you could or should make a variation or remix,but it sounds finished in my ears.So...
Im glad I checked your stuff man! Im happy to've found another "goldmine" artist.really.
