    Great song. I like how all the percussion sits nicely in the mix. Nice work.

    Thanks for listening and for the feedback. In retrospect the bass is a little overpowering. Something I need to learn to mix and master better. Cheers.

    Very awesome track. Nice progression and a nice tribal feel to it. Almost feel like i need some congas in there early on to give it a bit more of a tribal feel. The Bass that comes in around 3 mins seems a bit over powering in the mix and seems to maybe a tad over compressed? Not too sure on that one.

    Really nice sounds coming out of the brute though. Love it.

    Only had enough time to listen to the first one but the only thing i can really point out is that your drums are being drowned out in the mix and they aren't as impacting as i would have expected given the other elements in the tracks. The arp work is great and shows alot of time and effort. The Guitar could us some more equing a tad muddy I think. Really like the feel of the track. Summer anthem style. Good work over all

    Very nice bro. Some of the parts in this tune seem a tad busy for my liking esp when comparing to other tunes done at 432hz. Have found that less is more sound wise with some of those tunes. Very awesome sound design here too like it alot

    if u use operator, detune ur fine course to a value between 962 and 968 (check with a tuner) , this bascially shifts your oscillator one octave up -32 cents and then adjust the global pitch to make it sit where u want
    if u use analog you find detune on the right
    the same happens for collision /corpus/ sampler

    Hello man! it's quite a complex topic but basically, making it 432 hz means that u have to detune everything by 32 cents (i advise to have a chart of those frequencies and use a lot of spectrum analyser to make it work) depends on the synths u use... i give u the link to more detailed info: (there's a huge book i advise u and also some tuning files u can load in differnt synths...)
    One thing is having your synth at 432 hz instead of 440, and another huge topic related which i advise u to dive in (i'm doing the same at the moment) is equal temperament vs pure intonation ecc cause it seems that the beauty/geometry of these frequencies emerge much better in temperament different from "equal temperament" (such as pure intonation and pythagorean ).... there are plenty of resources on the net on these topics and it's a global learning process, there are not fixed truth.... (
    Hope it helped
    if u have more specific question, don't hesitate!

How To Approach Promoters, Artist Managers and Event Organizers

Trying to get booked for events when you are first getting yourself into the scene can be one of the most frustrating parts of being an artist or DJ.

When I first started, one of the things I wish I had hard wired into my brain is the fallacy of expecting of an equal amount of response, attention and effort to that of which you put in when you made a submission. A lot of the time you won’t get anything - but it’s not your fault!
