re teru: big fat ditto

re cdk: samples from archive marked public domain or other lax CC license are pefectly fine although he should put an url to the archive page in ‘external sources link’ so we can verify.

I think it’s great, too. I wonder why you aren’t satisfied with it…great dance track with no real problems that I can hear.

Maybe add some more effects? It could be a little "crazier." But what do I know.

thanks everyone!….well i guess, i’m not really satisfied with the "lead guitar"……i imagined it to be more "improvising"…..but i’m afraid thereĀ“s nothing much i can do, since i don’t know how to play ……just stuck on the virtual guitarist…..

I liked the idea…. very cool. However, if you want some advice, I got some suggestions (constructive criticism is more useful than not, right?). If I was doing the mix, I’d work on balancing the levels of the primary religious sample. The highs and mids of that sample are a bit piercing compared to the rest of the mix. Also, I would take it easy on the reverb of your drums and bass (the percussion especially). I think in general people use too much reverb… it makes drums and everything else sound messy. (I use reverb sparingly and to specific musical effect in my mixes, especially on drums). Also, you should work on the music structure a bit to create differing grooves in the different sections. Related to this, you could develop some transition fills too. When you introduce the guitar solo or the sax solo for example, you could maybe change up the groove a little and create some structural outlines. That way, the listener doesn’t get what I call, "groove fatigue" (i get it easily so my music is generally sometimes almost schizophrenically changing grooves) and can follow along with the musical narrative more readily. Even "minimal" house or trance electronic music, if done properly, has subtle, yet effective groove changes in key moments. I think is what maybe Lisa was talking about when she said it should be "crazier". hehe. Again, it was cool idea!

Very deep. But more importantly, the omage to Moby via guitar loops and old gospel vox is set off by the sax, in order to keep you soulfully in the right place on the map with this one. A disturbing and ridiculous cut all at the same time. I think I’m playing it in my Katrina Benefit set as #1 for the night.
