Congrats #1!

Hey RGH!=).Congrats getting the #1 of MAC7-MAY!!
To be honestly I really didn't expect that this
song would win XD
But I think i'm just used to listen to fast-paced
music. haha

This is more hip-hop than dnb tho..
However,it could be used as a DNB intro ofcourse.
This song is pretty calming to listen to.
So I think this song should be perfect for looping =]

Keep it up RGH! <3

RyeGuyHead responds:

To be honest with you, neither did I! haha

The track is primarily drums and bass but it has a hip-hop flavor....im lost

Congrats #2!

Hey curriemaster!
Congrats with your 2nd place with the contest =]
Definately worth it!

This loop is really calming for your mind ^^
It somehow reminds a lot of SMW2(Yoshi's Island)
when I hear this.

Very nice!

curriemaster responds:

Paragon you sexy devil, thanks for the review :P. Glad you like the tune, its too bad these tunes were never used for the frontpage but oh well :). Cheers!

Still my favorite remix!

You David0rr have made an awesome remix of Defcon Zero.
I think it's still the best remix here on NG.
Has been one of my favorites since you've submitted it.
I even got it burned on CD =]

This remix is just soo nice that i keep getting
this weird feeling above my stomach, Like there's
something spinning in there when i listen to this.

Real great work David0rr!
THank you for this remix,
It really helps me to calm down in any situation <3

really great stuff!

hey man. i thought let me give you a review back since you also reviewed one of my songs =]

I really like this, it is really amazing with all the ambient pads, some sort of dark/psycho feeling.

When I hear this it reminds me alot of the days
when i used to play Perfect-Dark on the N64 XD
that bd thing you did was amazing too and it fits perfectly in the song.

This is how ambient should sound like!
The sound really puts you into a chair in the
middle of a place surrounded by darkness.

Very well my friend!
keep it going!

Karco responds:

Wow, a review from ParagonX9? I'm flattered - but funnier still is that I can't recall reviewing any of your songs. I guess I owe you one, then. =P

Hmm, I actually wasn't intending to give it any sort of "psycho" feeling. I can see your reasoning behind dark, though.

I'm guessing the "bd" thing is a typo. Whether it is one nor not, I don't know what you're talking about and can't respond to that part. Aah well.

Glad you like it so much! Thanks a lot for the review! =D

Very good =]

I love the randomness in this. There's happening so much that it never get's bored. Very nice FX especially the reverse claps. I really enjoyed listening to this. I just HAD TO listen the whole song completely, mainly because i really wanted to know what's going to happen with the FX n stuff XD

Very kool... Keep it up =]

Stealth-Emergence responds:


Thanks ParagonX9

Glad you liked it!

Peace Out!


Pretty good Rucklo =D

First off.. Congrat's on the #1 place of this
week's Top5! =]

The intro was pretty kool. I loved the filtered
bassline on the background =]
And the quick silence at :23 was really nice
to hear. And because of that the sound after
that pumped out much harder to your ears. =D

There was one thing that I didnt like.
And that was the long bass that started at 1:07
It was not really pleasant to hear because after
a few seconds it's almost like theres some sort
of thing buzzing around your ears.
This could've been fixed by using filtering FX
on it. And because of the constant heavy
frequency's in that bassline, the BassDrum of
the beat didnt pump that much as earlier in the
track. It also takes too much attention from the
listener's ear which causes that all the other
sounds are fading away to the background..

But for the rest it was really nice, and I hope
you'll keep submitting in the future =]

Nice work Rucklo!

Rucklo responds:

thanx. #1 is all BS imo, but it always attract a few extra listeners :)

This version of the song I was basicly trying out a few techniques for the subbass and the reece, and some was OK, some werent... The bassline that come in later on is from the original track, it pretty much sux... :) anyway, thanx alot for a detalied review with good tips, I´ll definitley remember them! That´s how a review should look :)
Keep an eye out for more DnB from me, I´m making a DnB "concept" as a school project. I´ll put the results right here on NG.

Very nice remix =D

And yes, Groovetek really is my brother!
And im glad he submitted a free song to NG =]
If you submitted this abit earlier you could've
joined the NG X-mas audio contest :/
Oh well.. It's a very nice remix from one of the
best Xmas song ever :D

Nice work!

Very kool :D

Hmm this is a very nice tribute =]
I love the bassline :) It really gives a nice
videogame feeling for some reason,
which is exactly the thing i really like :D
SOunds very good n stuff. Some things that could
be changed maybe:

- I think there's abit overuse of the sawsynth
here, sounds flat, Could have some (filtering)FX
and maybe some more reverb/delay effects.
The sawsynth's sound like they are on a same
layer or something. Reverb/delay can bring
the sounds to multi dimensions.

hmm well that's I think the only thing that
could've changed. But for the rest it sounds
very amazing. Exactly the melody-style that I
like ;)

Well done!

Ahhh very nice! :D

You told me about this remix on the forums,
so I thought lemme check it out ^_^
I love the Amen break, and there are some nice FX in it. But beware of cutting off synths and loops immediately, Sometimes Crash Cymbals and reverb can give it a better sound. Couldve used soms more SoundFX. FX can be very important.
It's important that the listener can focus on different layers in the song. for example; 'If the listener is not focussing on the main melody or the drums, he should still be able to hear other sounds like Sound FX, Ambient strings, Acid lines or whatever.

Overall, this song sounds really great!
And thnx for remixing =)
You're good AC! ;) Keep it up man!


AdmiralConquistador responds:

Haha, awesome! Now I think I've been reviewed by all the greats on NG. I'm so glad you thought my remix of your AMAZING song sounded great! I know what you mean, going back and listening to it, those abruptly cutoff loops don't sound to great, maybe a little reverb would have been better. And FX :)

Thanks for reviewing! I'm very flattered!



WTF KARBON!! Dude this souds very professional!
The quality is amazing! Hmm, I wonder where you got those samples from ;)
The beginning its sort of HipHop beat.. en then it
turns into pwng DNB!! Awesome bass & drums & FX and everything!! omg..

Damn, You made me jealous hahaha..

Karbon responds:

Sorry i spelled your name wrong, lol. I'm just gunna call you JD.

I can't see you jealous of me, at all. Lol. Yeah, you know where i got those samples. :D

I like using hip hop beats in mix with my dnb, makes it stand out more. I'm flattered you think this sounds "Professional".

Two review from JD in the same day, you made my day sir. :P
