4EYEZ - d-Fonque - El tambor


Some tribal, rhythmic house going on here... (I recorded it live!)
I'm especially content with the drums + percussion (I played in the percussion and guitar myself)

-The song is too long, because i mixed it in real time, so it also lacks extra's (like cymbals) and needs post-production

Really curious about your thoughts people!!

it kinda felt strange before the longer patern played,then its terific,i think u handled it wrong in build up;

just a thought for your build up,use the intr chords of the longer patern,but just play the beginning 1/4 of the bazeline patern;

its somehow you wanted it ,as a intro

this is beside your perc intro,its only strange when the bazeline comes;

i dont think the beautiful music (longer patern),comes to its rights ,the way u did it;

anyway,for the rest very solid,and i love it,just the recording qualety and timing of certain percs;could be better,more roll,but i'm realy talkin details here;

big up,and fav from 1st edit,this is promissing;greetz

ow yai,could ya play some guitr solo ,on my latest,pm me,thx

the build up.. not good yet (real time recording and shifting patterns manually)

What do you mean by 'longer pattern?'

Soundquality : my mic (for recording the guitar and percussion) gives constant noise/hiss
Had to convert it to mono because the track was too big (17 MB)

i agree on most things written above. very nice music.
i like the bassline, warm keys & guitar a lot. the percussion line on the contrary is a weaker point in the track. not that it's bad (exept for the quality of the recording like mentioned before), but it doesn't have the same credibility as the other instruments. i don't believe that a descent percussionist plays that way. for example, there are too many rolls (or paradiddles) for a house track.
in general: nice work!

good call about the rolls... when thinking about it, i agree completely
(i took some out already)

Intro is somewhat to long/empty imho.... But once it starts...Dj Gregory comes back in the house ;-) What do you use for your rhode sounds? I think they really sound how they are supposed to... Bassline & chords are excellent... Around minute 4.40 it really starts.. I think it takes you (to) long to get there....And then I don't hear that pattern anymore ... To bad...because that's a good one to create some variation into your song... Then afterwards you got some sort build down...and it doesn't build up anymore... I don't get it... This song could get awesome... But I think you have to rethink your structure & buildup.... Dunno if you follow me... Damn pitty, because this song has SOOOO MUCH potential... But I assume you're still work'n on it... anyhow... Good things into it...but they don't come out as I would like to hear it... :) Grtz man!

thx... i agree..
i just made the song and mixed it live, that 's why the build up (and down) takes so long..

and i wasn't sure about that piece in the middle.. was afraid it would sound somewhat cheesy.. apparantly you people don't think so...

I used the rhodes MK 1 (from reason) with tremolo and reverb
