Monodisc - Bar 303 Monodisc - Bar 303

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I expecting nothing less from you

You never fail to impress me with your sense of melody and what ambient truly is. It doesn't have to be just soundscapes (which I am fond of), but what you do is add a jazzy twist to a beautiful genre that I don't listen to enough. We really need to do a collaboration one of these days. I can only imagine how it will turn out.

Again, a wonderful song that can only be described as melodic and enchanting.


tijnn responds:

A 10, from idiosyncratic. Now that's a first i believe.

Thank you so much for the kind review, and yés, i cannot agree more. We should actually collab sometime soon. I have always loved your music, your unique style, and i bet we will create one crazy ass tune.

Thanks for the kind review, and i hope to speak to you soon!

Noise? lulz

This is experimental, not noise. It isn't cacophonous enough, but that doesn't mean it isn't a good track. I love the professionalism in every small detail. The drum beats are very IDM like, actually they are IDM. The sudden stops and breaks add and build up tension. The piano, synths, and all the little noises in between make this a standout track. This is experimental, but it ends up becoming a wonderfully ambient/IDM track that is just as relaxing as any chillout track.

Thumbs up my friend.


tijnn responds:

Thanks. I actually can't agree with you more, i personally love this track a lot while i started it off with a smile, saying 'lol im gonna make such filthy noise'.

Im glad you liked it!

hell....YES

This is breakcore. This gives Venetian Snares a run for his money, seriously. It's more tame than stuff, but in a good way. The snare rush in the beginning was perfectly timed, the off-kilter drums beats are also quite good. The synths minimalistic, yet perfectly placed and add a sense of chaos to this tune.

Amazing, your best song to date.


tijnn responds:

Haha thanks a lot for the kind review man!

Woot, a 10 by you, that hasn't happened in a very long time.
Thank you so much for the praising and kind review man!

Good for a first attempt

Alright dude, you need to work on the vocals, but otherwise the riff is very Sabbath-like, but maybe not as heavy. Like I said, I'd work on the vocals (or just get rid of them completely).

The main verse riff is a bit too dependent on the I IV XII blues scale, but the little licks in between made up for it. Once we get to the midway mark, we start to kick a bit more ass if you know what I mean. The riff, albeit not much different, works better.

The licks are fucking fantastic, but get rid of or work on the vocals, k?

Ah yes, anxiety

This is definitely one of the better tracks you've made, and here's why:

It captures a mood without question. I can imagine a variety of things, let's say, while listening to this track. I also love it how it loops so damn well. It could be on repeat for half an hour before I realized that it was the same song. The pads are relaxing, but they still manage to retain a certain amount of anxiety and tension, which is good. Keep it up man.


tijnn responds:

Hehe thanks alot again for the kind words and awesome hints in the review, Idiosyncratic!

Now here's something

A nice pumping bass drum, an arp that Tiesto would be jealous of, and a catchy melody that isn't just three notes. The percussion is crystal clear, but not overpowering. The melody is at the forefrunt, but it doesn't kill everything else. The samples (albeit only two), were well placed and added that DJ and night club feel to the song.

Great job, buddy. Just make some longer songs, so we can jam some longer.


tijnn responds:

Hehe yeah that sure makes sense, thanks for the awesome review!

Good but needs some editing.

I like this. However, I would, if I were you, get rid of any of the stupid three note patterns that show up every so often. The song is a bit schizophrenic and I can't always tell where it's going. You have too many pads going on at one time and things, like the melody, can get lost in the mix. Also, please make the drums louder because they're just barely audible and for a genre of music that depends on the power of the drums, it just doesn't work.


tijnn responds:

Well i didn't make this to be standard IDM / D&B, it actually started out as an ambient / FX track. But i combined it a bit with breakcore to make it sound like this. Still glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the review!

I love the evolution

I'm astounded by the great transition. The beginning reminded me of those unoriginal eurodance tracks for a few seconds, but once the bass and drums kicked into full gear, it transformed into a cool electronica track. This is far from chill-out, but who cares about genre classification?

This reminds me, in a good way, about my younger years spent playing my Sega Genesis and N64. I'm not sure how it reminded me of my fondness for the old video games, but really good overall.

Just in case you're wondering, I only gave out one ten ever in my reviews, and in hindsight, it was a bad decision. Perfection is subjective, so I'd rather not give the false impression that this is perfect.

tijnn responds:

haha, those are some really wise words and i do completely understand, but for a young / unexperienced / new artist, like many on newgrounds, perfection is not in reach unfortunately, thanks for the honest words though and i really appreciate the review, thanks alot and i hope you really enjoyed!

Cool stuff

One of the few tracks that I can honestly say deserves a 10. The amen break was tastefully chopped up and spewed around in a harmonious way. The melody and basslines were cool and thankfully not so cliche as they tend to be in electronic genres.

10/10--A great electronic track with a familiar but not cliche approach.


tijnn responds:

Hehe thanks alot, i try my best to keep it interesting! ;)

The votes were way too harsh

My god, this should be at least a 3 or something of that nature. This is a vast improvement over the original, which in and of itself, merits this track at least an 8. However, with that said, there are some things that need to be worked on. First, a different chord progression and a more variable melody. The melody kind of stayed the same throughout the entire song, with little to no variation whatsoever. That's one problem. Other than that, it's a cool song that should be slashed back down to about 1 minute instead of the 2 that it's at right now.
