Commenting as I'm listening; Interesting style. Groovy rhythm. Great relation between bass and drumming. Enjoyable sounds too. Original composition. I sense a VST effect in there, correct?

I liked this. Upload more.

What I think ?
How about making a whole album with all tracks have as title : "untitled" ?
I refuse to review the 447th piece called "untitled" by someone. If you have no imagination with text, at least give it a number or so.

How about you take a listen, then suggest a fitting title?

Thanks for the positive feedback, there's more to stream here

Refusing a review doesn't mean that I didn' take a listen of course. I don't do title-suggestions either. And it is not necessary here, because there is already text-material. I heard something like 'Start My Day'

Woo. This song is friggin tight, with a style to be admired. I have no complaints for this song, except for that it's probably better than anything I could ever hope to write.  Love the samples, very high quality.  Where'd you get 'em, if I may ask?

Oh, and I assume this was made in MP Tracker? Almost sounds TOO good for it.

EDIT:
@Sam_zen: The vocals in the song are "I'm ready to sell my day"? I think. Sounds like a hooker. lol. There also seems to be an english child saying "Are we nearly there yet"? Can't quite tell.

@xincbox: Congrats, this song has earned a place on my iPod.

Everyone should get on this forum's chatroom RIGHT NOW...still not sure why, though.

Hmm, struggling to remember.. i made this one a while back but i think its a mixture of my instrument library (old 16/32 bit samples my older brother collected over the years), the GMDLS stuff that comes with Mpt, and drum samples stolen from Reason :p the voice samples are my lovely girlfriend, and they're is a bit of her flute in there aswell.

yeah, i do struggle sometimes to make stuff i do in modplug match up in sound quality with other peoples FLstudio / cubase/ reason work.. but i think i did quite well with this track

i think we can leave now / i think we believe now / i'm ready to start my day / i've got to tidy up! / are we nearly there yet ?

That really has made my day, thanks for all the positive feedback!

There's a more recent song i've been working on this week here, a little different in style so it might not be your thang :S

Thanks for the honour, I renamed the file.
I can join the positive side here, again a tight and detailed piece of work.

~ A pity that the speedy hihat at 0:34 is not used more often.
~ The harmony sequence of 4 declining ground-notes is a bit of a cliche, but it's one of my favourites too,
if I like to improvise on things.

I commented "the main reason" on the proper place, its own thread.

BTW: I did NOT mean that your GF sounded like a hooker. I meant my idea of what the vocals said sounded like what a hooker would say.  :oops:

Computer problems fixed. I'm gonna get that new song of yours now.
