    Thanks a lot for your compliments! The guitar part you mentioned was the first idea i had for this song the rest was then built around that... yeah maybe it could be smoother and smaller. but i heard it that way And thanks for your genre propositions i'll go with advanced retro update then hear you soon - theo

  3. [quote name='Geek99' timestamp='1496146407' post='3309092'] I'd echo some of the above, very competently done (well done to Sybil also), I wouldn't choose to listen to this style myself but I can appreciate something done well. [/quote] hey geek99 nice to hear that! thanks!
  4. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1494806893' post='3298678'] Your definitely a part of the new direction of bass playing and popular music. Blue [/quote] How nice to hear that! thanks theo
  5. [quote name='BassBus' timestamp='1494752831' post='3298253'] Sure you're not a bass player who plays guitar? You really do know how to play bass. Good stuff. [/quote] Hey BassBus, thanks! I earn my money with playing and teaching the guitar - that's why I see myself as a guitarist. Thanks! [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1494754203' post='3298266'] Good morning, Theo... Yes; as above, good stuff there, and there's nowt wrong with your tasteful bass playing. Indeed, all the instruments are more than well executed, with maybe a special mention for the vocals..? Shades of Sade there (that's a compliment...). Any downside..? Well, yes, actually; I was less fond of the overly harsh 'lo-fi' drums. My hearing is especially 'shot' in the mid-to-upper ranges, but even with that I had to turn it down quite a bit, as I found it too aggressive and rasping. It's probably just me, though, as the overall production and mixing is otherwise top-notch. Altogether, then, a 'thumbs up', with just a touch of reserve on the drums sound. Well done to all involved. [/quote] Thanks for your critique! I will think about it in my next tune. I think it's also a matter of taste - some people (like me for example) like this lo-fi sound of sampled drums. actually if you sample from vinyl, often the source is already quite dirty and trashy... thanks again for your constructive feedback! [quote name='MoonBassAlpha' timestamp='1494773576' post='3298425'] Sounds good to me. I like the way you've layered the vocals, very upfront and lush at the same time. [/quote] hello MoonBassAplpa. It's such a pleasure working with Sibyl. You put a mic in front of her and she sings twice (or even 6x at the end of the song) the same phrase and i only needet little editing on the voice... [quote name='MoonBassAlpha' timestamp='1494786446' post='3298538'] The 2nd tune is also good, but shows perhaps a too-obvious Portishead influence, which I happen to like. Will you be entering our monthly composition challenge? From what I've heard you will do well! [/quote] Yeah I hear often it sounds too portisheadish... It was not on purpose - but of course they influenced me a lot Do you have a link to the composition challenge? I hear the first time about this - Is this more about a composition or a production? [quote name='Mykesbass' timestamp='1494787537' post='3298549'] Both tracks excellent. Fabulous arrangement and Sibyl Hofstetter has a wonderful voice. I'm going to echo what Dad3353 said though, in that I found the low-fi elements a little harsh, and would have personally felt a cleaner, smoother mix would have suited the vocals and the compositions more. Just a personal opinion of course, and not enough to put me off a couple of great tracks. [/quote] Thanks man!
