[IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

Looking for feedback on this tracks composition, if it's to busy or what changes i could make to increase its appeal. I fucking love it, but everyone I show it to isn't crazy about it and Im wanting to learn why and what I should be more aware of in my writing style. All feedback would really help me hopefully improve my composition skills. Thanks in advance

Re: [IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

I really like this, the atmosphere is really chill and a little melancholy but the beat is glitch and driving. Some of the highs seem a bit hissy to me (particularly the hi-hats and the snare) I especially like the bassline that starts around 3:15-3:20. Very layered and interesting, and has some great dynamics. My only real issue is that some of the sounds need some EQ adjustments. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the feedback I agree, still need going to rework the track a bit and do a final mix down and master . I'll update with the new track when it's all done. Thanks again

It may be just my preference but I find the drums kind of thin. Perhaps you can add some harmonics to them, by layering some thing extra on top of them.

Re: [IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

Thanks for the feedback Still haven't mixed or mastered the song , wanted to know that the arrangement was good before I got down to the nitty gritty. Most definitely needs some cleaning up!

Re: [IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

I really dig your track man! Love the drums, the bass melody and the vocals. Maybe a bit too discordant at the piece starting at 2:32, but not completely sure. Great tempo shift!
Well done!
Looking forward to hear it cleaned up as you said.

Wow, killer arrangement! Great journey! I agree that the drums sound thin (example: 2:40). The Medium/High hits and not being very effective

Looking forward to listen to the developments!

Interesting idea! Novaspire, could you please elaborate on how you would add harmonics to the thinner elements to make them full?

Re: [IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

So finally getting back to this track! Got my sisters to do vocals and just arranging them now. Kinda lost objectivity with this one and was hoping for some feedback on the vocal arrangement . How is there placement..too much too little etc. I have more vocals I can add if need be. Any feedback would be amazing....really hoping to finish this one up and do a final mix and master . Thanks in advance!!

Here's the track

Re: [IDM Garage] NOWFEEl-completely Lost

It is a bit busy, and some of the elements seem rushed, but hey.. this is a solid and fun ideal!


The 1st thing i noticed on computer speakers was that it feels like to many instruments are sharing similar frequencies. After listening to the song on my monitors I found the same issues.

Can you do a few different layers with the horns? Possibly placing the higher registered brass elements on the side, and a tuba(or synth low brass sound) in the mid section.

That organ sound feels like it would be a bit more powerful if it was going thru a amp?

When the flute comes i feel so calm, and got a smile! Possibly pan it a bit.

Your bells seem to clash with the other thing that sounds like a sugar bytes arp that pans from side to side.

Please bring up the brass a wee bit.. can barely hear em, and my ears are dying to hear that phrase as the support you've so kindly built up!

In the intro instead of having the beat run so steady, can we possibly break it up so it feels like it's single hits up till about .. 1:08? Just looking to tease the ear a bit more in the beginning as it seems the song builds so fast right out the gate... excuse the racing pun! =D


That metal shuffle that's under the chorus type section 1:09-.. feels a little off, and could be pushed back under the mix later to give the whole track that sweet shuffle your going for! Solid ideal!

5:04 ... just thought about a pretty rad addition for this section... maybe do something similar to a marvin gaye track or otherwise where people add some foley of a bar conversation here...

Love how the tune really starts to come together at about the 3:14 mark! It gets a bit hard to tell what instruments are there as support, and what's the main melody to follow though.

Not sure if you plan to add any FX's or if they are already in the song, but a nice reverse cymbal or some flanged hit to announce the transitions would be pretty rad!


What a fun concept behind this, and thanks so much for sharing!
