Re: [HIP HOP] LDKitz - Like water
Lovely chopping, everything mixes really nice also. I know this is just a start / loop and am not sure if you intend for anything more. But I like it so much I will say what I would like to hear.
-Very subtle atmosphere (air, vinyl, noise, a distant train, whatever adds to the feel for you) in the background that comes in after so many bars or the entire time but just really far back via verb and/or low volume. This would help add depth because everything is pretty close up in the mix. But I like that closeness so adding verb to the instruments may not be good unless you want to experiment with that.
-Later on in the loop have an occasional FX hit along with the snare, could even have a reverse version of this. The base of the sound could be some unique sound you find on a record for example. Even a vocal one shot could be cool depending on your style. Throw some verb / delay on that and keep it occasional.
-Some drum fills on occasion could be nice also for example a double / trip snare/kick/ or hat fill. Could even do some reverse drum thing.
-Arrangement wise the next part could be anything but it could be cool to have a stable melody of some kind that is very simple to layer on top. But so many directions you could go, like introducing a that new melody with just the kick for a couple bars before coming back, or dropping out some other thing.
Anyway, it does sound good. Happy choppin!
