Shit title I know.

A more techno related piece, finally! (Although I do have some house in store).

This is pretty dam minimal, but I hope it works.

All comments taken.

With that much space you could easily crank the delay and reverb further. Especially with the clap, I was waiting for the clap to get reverb-cranked every 4 bars or so. Bassline could be a bit more meaty. The track could use a string or a big pad towards the end.

Btw it still sounds like house to me :)

Thanks for the comments.

I followed your suggestions. In fact the clap did change its reverb every 4 bars, but only occasionally. I extended that. I've changed the title track.

The only thing I didn't do was add another element.

Thanks again.

BTW, is it really house? IDK anymore. ffs.

yeap, it sounds like house to me too ))
and there is a lot of ''unused'' space in the mix. Well ok you don t have to be like me going berserk on delays(!) but some effects would be nice I think.
solid mono lows though. very nice work really. again some hardware magic here?

Thanks all.

I'm actually in the process of adding a string.

Shocking, I know!

Ok you cunts.

For the first time ever, I've actually followed all your advice. String also added in the second half.

The mix maybe a bit off though. Hope it sounds better. I changed the header, but here it is.



PS - Is it really house? What makes house? Chords?

Ayyyy a big improvement from the first draft you posted. Good work, I like this :D Personal taste, I would add just a bit more percussion here and there, nonetheless the minimal feel of the track works already.

Definitely house to me too, albeit "minimal deep house" thanks to the reverb kick and massively minimal sound pallette.

It is much, much more minimal than your other stuff. this is hard to explain but I kind of think with this sort of stuff it can sound quite rudimentary and amateurish unless you know it was intentional, because all the sounds are so "small". but because I know your other tracks I'm sure it was a stylistic choice.

Also the vibe overall reminds me of the Driftwood label stuff which sells for ridiculous amounts on Discogs, which is a good thing.

Very nice vibe. I like the subtle sub groove as well. I think you could add another bit of percussion at some point to add to the groove. Theres a lot of space in the track to play with, so dont be afraid to add layers to the overall groove.

And this track is definitely floating in the deep house area. The deep melodic chords, the groove with the clap on the 2 and 4, the tempo etc.. very housey.

Now i dont know what you listen to generally but im guessing a lot of house.. But i would say have a binge of listening to straight techno and then youll be able to hear the difference :lol:

Really nice mellow low tempo track. Nice lazy pull on the 16th hats!

One suggestion - it sounds a bit like I'm listening to the low end from the opposite side of an empty basketball court. The sense of space is nice but maybe slightly LP the reverb on the kick and bass and shave off the wet a touch... It would tighten things up and allow some more space for a subtle low-mid percussive element.

Great vibe in this one 8-).

Great groove, very atmospheric. Liking this one for sure. Great use of a few well chosen elements. Well done...

You surprise me! Definitely house in my opinion. The groove, the tempo, the chords... Different to your other stuff, this one is definitely not my favourite, but still, great work! Could do with a bit of a rim shot or something else clickedy-clacky out of the percussion family... Get that shit out there you cunt!
