Re: [Melodic Techno] DTMF - Vigen Mortem
I wish the kick was a little less polite. It's too straight-laced and behaves as if it's a placeholder for when you find the tracks "true" kick drum that can do a better job of nailing the track down.
I love the stuff that the treble end is made from, it seems to be intellectually cobbled together in loving and musically competent way.
As the track doesn't have a very aggressive bass end (or bassline) the mix sometimes feels too trebly. A really pushy, compressed, proggy low end would be more then suited to a track this intellectual, yet also this danceable. You could make the bass end feel like a massive velvet wall, and it would only play to the track's strengths.
the high-frequency metal-ish percs are an obvious highlight, and worth showing off, but mind the low end has something equally strong to hold up its end of the routine.
Thanks for making a piece of music that made me log in to write about.
