[IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

This was my (rejected) submission to the IDMF039 Comp. Once again - I got a little carried away. I cleaned it up a little. There used to be some really lame vocals.

Hi Oatbag,

The start feels kind of unpredictable but then very powerful with the chopped/processed vocals. The drum programming is absolute amazing - love it. Big sounding, drum n bass-y rhythm.

Rolling drums starting from 3.09 are well placed. The lead synth on 3.40 sounds also well mixed to the entire track. I was thinking what could improve the sound or the track but honestly it's an accomplished track already - good work!

Cool stuff.. And yes, it's slightly better than the one with vocals I heard on SC.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

I'm still not really happy with the snare sounds I have going on. Need to not listen to it for a good long while and then fix those up without my brain expecting one thing.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

This is interesting man I'll give ya that,

Dont even trip about the rejected deal, I was too lol.


But yeah I think this is cool, the comb like filtered voice thing is pretty trippy,

I think this could use some more work IMHO, specifically on the snare, and the kick I want to say,

I think I'm being thrown off drum wise because how old school it sounds, so different strokes Im guessing lol.

I know the feel on waiting a bit before working again, it really sucks when you get attached/used to how something sounds so you end up referencing it and then thinking that was the right way.

But hell man, cheers for trying out

This reminded me of aphex twin for some reason. If you just want a label there is a place called leminal records that you can send a demo to if you're interested. They prefer idm. I liked it.

+ Great rhythm! And the vocoder-like vocals are really creating nice mood.
- I don't like the intro (little bit too long) and that ringing sound.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

how didnt this get accepted? seems appropriate as shit for the type of release its going to end up being. anyway really love the rhythm of every layer. everything fits very well. i think the kick bass is a bit muddy on my speakers, some small eq'ing could go a long way.

but yea, the first drop into the beat is excellent man. total idm head nodder

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

You have a very interesting style.

I enjoyed this piece. I thought though, however, the one that I heard on Malm Up Your Alley a few weeks back was a bit more, I don't know, out of the box in thinking than this piece.

Stem Collector is right because I too found a bit of unclarity in the low end. You seemed to have two bass parts that were fighting for space there.

I very much liked the drums. The transitions were nice and well thought out. I'm nit usually one for vocal edits but I didn't mind them at all in this piece.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

There I unfixed it and can actually listen to it again. Not sure what I was doing last night when I made the changes. Thanks for feedback - I took a bit of bass out of the kick and adjusted the low shelf on the vox stuff.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

As was said, there is a bit of a power struggle in the bottom end.

I like the lack of structure.

This song is nice and wide but the mix didn't move much. I would like to hear placements change up through the song to keep me on my toes.

That's actually a really good point. I spent lots of time focused on panning and stereo field, but not on motion in the depth of the track. I bet it would have added a nice feel. I will think more about depth in future projects. I think this one is finally put to bed.

Thanks everyone for your listens and feedback. The sneak peaks of the 039 compilation are great - glad everyone is making such awesome stuff.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

For snare you need to have room in the mix 250-400hz and I do not think there is much room there. If you want another snare to come through better you gotta sculpt out some space for it in that area. Its where the lwoer body of the snare is.

Interesting yes. I'd like some more melody in there. You are good with melodies so why not?

That slidey, wobbly thing at the start

This is a really strong track hun, just goes to show how good the music that got on IDMF039 is

Without a doubt I will be back yet time to listen to this track. Damn, I was struck by how clean and deep sound with your work. You have a very interesting style.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

this didn't get accepted? sucks. this is of the same quality as most of the music from idmf releases. it's not my type of style, i think this stuff gets boring after a while but that goes for anyone else in the genre. (no offense m8)

great production though, the song is very professional. you'll make it on there at some point dude. perfect fit.

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

This is a great track OatBag!!

I have not heard it in all it's stages, but the version I just listened to was awesome. I was especially impressed with the drums. They are quite intricate and present throughout the track, but they do not ever feel monotonous to me.

Again, great work!

Cheers,
Daniel

Re: [IDMF039 Open] Oatbag - There Isn't

wtf? for an experimental/intelligent music forum, everyone has massive opinions on "styles" and their "cup-o-teas" i frowny face at you all!

oatbag this is good, love noise, beds, expansive wastelands of sonic couture. dopers when i get back from school im going to follow yew. i want to remix this/also do you have your "crazy" version around? i want to hear that. i like the harken dnb groove for a few moments here and there.
