Re: Retne's Open Source Noise Project

I would say that's a fair assessment. Probably the only thing I would add is that the mixing needs work too. I honestly wanted the wobble bass situated more prominently in the mix but did a bad job of it. Funny thing is I wrote that track in about an hour just tacking on whatever I felt like and as ...

Re: 2011 in Music.

Latest musical release I've been digging is DJ Eco's the light in your eyes went out. Both the original mix and the Lemon & Einar K remix is pretty sweet. That's pretty much the only thing released this side of the new year I've been bumping a lot. I'm looking forward to the Flogging Molly album...

OK. I adjusted a couple things and added a build-up. Problem is I'm not sure if I like the synth I bring in for the build. So let me know what you think.
