Nice work. Sounds like '80s TV and movie sountrack stuff. I like the electronic drums with real guitar and sax. And isn't that car a Ferrari not a Lamborghini?

A right hand drive Testarosa? I thought you Norwegians drove on the correct side of the road?

No bad. You might want to focus on your drum sample selection. For example there is a really obvious high hat in there that is just not something you'd hear in music of this style.

Re: Mute Mutant - mullets, neon, lamborghinis and white suits

Here's a reasonably good example.


Listen to how much they do with just the kick and snare. The fills are mostly toms and claps. There is also generally a lot more reverb on everything. And most of the melody is held held down by the synth bass. This is pretty typical production for this genre.

Re: Mute Mutant - mullets, neon, lamborghinis and white suits

Back in the day I couldn't stand this type of music... probably because it didn't have much guitar to speak of. Lately I've been listening to it a lot at work, fantastic music to work to... not too distracting. I also keep notes of tracks that I really like so I can jam along later. Some are pretty busy already, but some take some sparing guitar really well!


Nice job and great advice on the drums.

I just listened to it... Very good! I listen almost exclusively to instrumental music anymore, but I thought the little bit of vocals were nicely done and added to the music. Some really good tracks deeper into the album. Thanks man!
