Lots of drum work and a catchy melody... What else do you need? =D

Opinions are welcome!

Original percussive intro. I like it when the drone sound sets in after the part that consists of pure percussion. What I like the best about this track I think is the structure, how you arrange the different parts. The drumming is also interesting. Ok, the traditional drums - kick and hi hat - may sound standard, but there are those claps which in its own right spice up the entire track.

That said, in general I think this is among the more anonymous tracks you've provided. It's all right, but except for some of the percussion, nothing really caught my attention. Oh - and the bass sample, maybe a bit loud? I don't know.

This a very nice straightforward house track ..! As house should be. If my grandchildren would visit me, I would play this, even maybe arrange it, to please them and make them dance.
Regarding too loud, I would say the short solo sequence from 2:45

I remember I started out with this track to do something 'experimental'. It turned out to be really poppish house track, hehe. Thx for the comments, guys!

Why styling 'experimental' then as : "house/old school" ? ;) . Besides, I don't care about poppish or not, I look at the skills being used.

More mixes. That's what came up in my mind too with this one. But more firstly in the way to play it back in different circumstances. Jumping back and forth in the patternrow, repeating clusters of patterns.

Okay, try another one then. Here is another tune which, as far as I remember, was made the same day in that same 'experimental' vein.

I think this one has more character than the previous one Louigi. Quite enjoyable, but how about even more variations? Interesting themes, but I'd like even more different themes.

It's an oldie, I probably won't be working on it, but thx for the feedback anyway. Both of these tracks are more of a B-side type of tracks.
