This is a remix of John Samely' s very good Instrumental 90s techno track. My version is just a little darker.


Max MotionReview: This track starts with a homemade vocal , is it Nige on the MC? , combined with an atmospheric sample and an acid bass , sounds pretty ok , then we get the ` Bad Dreams ` sample which is overdone for me together with the original `Nige Sample` and the cut down `Dreams` which i prefer without the `Bad `lol!!. Just after the 1 min mark a really annoying sample hits us , big mistake , maybe you should have distorted it or picked another sample , ruins the feel of the track for me. The track changes little for the remainder of the track but floats along quite nicely and sounds pretty good apart from that `sample` hitting me in my left earphone . Again with Nige , this track could be so much better , pity there isn`t any remixers out there , they seem to have disapeared of the face of the planet , is it just me who likes remixing other peoples tracks i ask myself..............?.zzzzzzzzzz

Max MotionReview: Maybe i should have added ` me and Nige `when it comes to remixing lol!!. If you listen to the original you can see how much smoother it runs than this track.

Fast beats and bad tuns will make you move on the dancefloor(lol) just enjoy it I hope????

US2K Review: This track begins with an almost immediately catchy combination of squelchy acid riff, lower octave bass and 4 on the floor bass drum. An atmospheric organ sound at the 7 seconds and an acid sweep at the 16-second mark is used to keep interest. The later sound also last long enough to introduce the main groove which is the previous 4 on the floor bass drum with additional accent clap and percussion 24 seconds into the mix. By the 30 second mark the mix is already very foot tapping and 2 seconds later an atmospheric sound effect which reminds me of the impossible mission sound-track adds further interest to the mix shortly before a new lead melody and sweeps play an alternative theme. 56 seconds into the mix the bass line and mood of the mix has changed at this point from dance floor to movie-score, including "detective series" strings at the 1 minute 2 second mark. This is confirmed at the 1 minute 20 second mark, when a mysterious but catchy jazz-like lead hook is played on a piano sound. This instrument is shortly afterwards accompanied by a series of mysterious sound synth pads to great affect. At the two-minute mark all instrument leave the mix except the main groove and bass line. This forms the first of a set of theme for the track bridge without the drums leaving the mix. Two minutes 24 seconds into the mix the second theme is announces by a cymbal crash. The second bridge theme is initially a "detective series" string pattern and main groove without baseline but one of the melody lines from earlier joins the arrangement about a second later, and then the bass returns too. From then on the musical themes from earlier take turns at leading the mix, the piano hook being the most important instrument in my opinion. The mix continues this way with occasional additional low sweep sounds until the 4 minute 23 second mark where it abruptly but successfully ends. I say this because the sudden finish works so well. My conclusion is this mix is very intelligently structured, and arranged. The use of fills, crashes, sound effects, choice of instrument and musical variation is excellent. To sum it all up "Bad Dreams" is a very good 90s dance inspired mix which in its present form an excellent film score with lots of potential for becoming a dance track with very little change. My final score is 9 out of 10 as it is well worth a listen!

HOT HOTER burning10

US2K Review: (Guest Review from Max Motion) This track has an 80s feel. It begins with a reasonably sounding 30 seconds of synth ( main synth line) , drum clap line. This is followed by the drums dropping to form a "sound builds up break" with the main keyboard continuing, joined by a second synth forming a groove at the 50 second mark, before the drums return. After another breakdown at around the 1 min 30 mark with the main synth line dominating the arrangement, the beat builds with clap variations and a really nice effects sample at the 1 min 50 mark. This announces a really nice main chorus and further fx. At the 2 min 35 mark there is a main break consisting of the original synth line and variations towards the 3 min 40 mark. At this point the drums kick back in accompanied by a few claps again. At the 4 minute mark another nice flanged type of synth pad kicks in, continuing for 45 seconds. The next break down allows this pad to slowly fade out leaving the main synth keyboard to finish the track. My score of this track is 7 out of 10 because it is ok. It started a little too quickly for me, and there were a few gripes in it. The break-down sample effects used at the 2.35 and 4.45 mark I did not like at all, something a little stronger was needed. Also the synth from the first half of the mix was replaced by a synth pad in the second half, which seemed to me the wrong way round without another sample to drive the mix later on. (US2K) Thank you Max

Any extra info, or message for your mix: some new stuff I made

US2K Review: This acid house track,by one the sites regular talents, begins with a typical old skool pad/string hook line, atmospheric sounds, and percussion, and later an atmospheric sweep which introduces a harpsichord/piano sound, and a percussive high pitched electronic gong sound. 22 seconds into the mix a hi hat, and techno bass line join the mix. Shortly after a 4 on the floor bass drum pattern with accent clap on every second beat is introduced (The main groove). The mix is already foot tapping and rather catchy. A particular siren sound, which I normally do not like to hear in ejay mixes, is used well in `Alpatio`, to introduce a change in the mix. This change is a new musical arrangement of the main groove and gong with less hi hats, a new acid line, and later an organ sound, playing an Egyptian sounding melody. This already sounds interesting but then the listener is treated to a rather catchy and fitting bass line, and very powerful second accent snare. The track is very danceable a this point. After 4 repeats of this catchy theme, 1 minute 24 seconds in the mix, a sound like a factory robot and the siren from earlier (quieter this time) introduces the a bridge. This is a drop of the groove leaving an arrangement of only hi hats a new nostalgic catchy acid line, the gong and one of the leads from earlier. At the one-minute thirty-seven mark that typical drop of the percussion to leave an acid solo is used well. The timing is spot for bringing back the four on the floor drum pattern back. Then the mix progresses further, with the catchy bass line and a temporary additional rhythmic acid line, claps and other percussion not heard before in the mix. This is effectively an extension of the bridge forming middle eight. From the 2 minute 2 second mark the main groove returns, (including hi hats and full percussion) with a succession of the Egyptian sounding organ line and catchy old skool pad/string hood and electric piano/harpsichord sound. These catchy musical sections drive the mix to a conclusion, which is the electric piano/harpsichord sound and drum groove, and then all percussive and drum sound are dropped from the mix leaving this instrument to solo for the end at the 3 minute 10 second mark. My opinion of this mix is that it is a very good example of 90s old skool acid house. It is very well structured, intelligently arranged. There is also well chosen variations of instruments including drums and percussion., and very skilful use of sound effects to announce changes . My score for the mix is 8 out of 10 and I suggest everyone into the genre have a listen, as I spent my days of sixth form listening to music not unlike this on Kiss FM. It will at least remind you of a great musical and Cultural Revolution.

When you mix soft and hard tunes

US2K Review: This mix begins with a rhythmic melody, hi hat and accent clap. Shortly after a few seconds a sub-bass makes a temporary "appearance", joined by pads, on its departure leaving some strings and the original melody and percussion. This is joined by a new lead to complete the introduction. The main theme enters at 33 seconds into the mix after a drum roll. Others have referred to this melody as happy and danceable and catchy. Well yes I agree but think it is annoyingly so. Back to the review, the track is driven by a full drum pattern ( main groove) consisting of clap, hi-hats and bass drum, and continues competently enough with new instrument melody sounds and eventually a nice bass sound.

At the 1 minute 1 second mark, during the first break and drop of the drums and main theme lead when things improve in my opinion, with the new square wave synth sound and bassy sound and some other variation melodies. This arrangement forms a new theme (theme 2) that some relief to the listener. Later when the main theme returns it is not annoying. I think this is because the plinky lead has a good bass and percussive bottom end synth reducing its presence this time.I did actually start to enjoy it and find it catchy without being irritating at this point, and it steadily improves. I particularly appreciate the sophisticated drum patternwhich includes occasional roles and fills. A second break in the mix takes place at 1 minute 52. An alternative lead sound plays to create additional variation in the mix. From the 2 minute 6 second mark an alternative theme is themed from the bass , sweepy sounding synth sounds, and atmospheric string/pad sounds. Whilst these instrument variations are taking place the drum pattern is changing too, the clap gathers speed by changing from an accent clap to one that follows the rhythm of the bass drum that creates a sense of increasing excitement. The track progresses to another break from the groove, leaving instruments from earlier in place but introducing a new string, which creates a sense of intensity. At the 2-minute 40 mark the main theme including the plinky lead. Pads and other synth sounds provide variation and drive the mix forwards. After a short break and a drum roll at the 3 minute 8 second mark theme two returns but with a full drum groove this time. To make things even better some string/pad sounds are added over time to build energy towards a final break resulting from all drums periodically leaving the mix. This bridge introduces a third theme which forms the basis of the conclusion, which is finale arrangement formed from a combination of instruments from the earlier themes, full drum groove, plus a well chosen new synthesiser melody. This conclusion sounded great to me, and even the abrupt stop at the 4 minute 35 second mark works well.

Despite my initial mocking this mix is very well structured and proves great musical skill. There are also great demonstrations of imagination and creativity, and production is reasonable although some choice of instruments could have been improved. Redeeming factors are the intelligently planned drum pattern variations. My final score on this mix is 6.5 out of 10. I know some visitors will like it. I recommend it to be listened to with an open mind, as although it is not going to be the next club hit well at least in its existing form, and I cannot say it's one of my favourite mixes on this site, but it is a respectable piece of art, and something that others can learn from.

Some funk and drums great beats are in this mix,all made whit great love fore music.

US2K Review: This track begins with mellow organ, which is followed by a reverse cymbal and percussive Latin sounding drums. After a cymbal at the 23-second mark atmospheric vocals and occasional snares enter the mix. This main vibe continues until the 53 second mark after which a female vocal introduces some additional synthesizer accompaniments, followed by a drum roll announcing a bass drum, pulsing bass line, which drive but are not strong enough to spoil the mellow feel of the mix. The percussion, snares, bass drum, vocals and original organ sound occasionally broken up with cymbals sound fx, and a variety of pad sound periodically drive the mix to effectively to the 2 minute 14 second mark. At this point there is a phase of music that serves as a variation and a bridge. This consists of the atmospheric male vox, percussion and a more rhythmic bass line. At the 2 minute 33 when the higher octave synth melody joins in the mix is very catchy. At the 2 minute 56 mark the bass drum leaves the mix leaving the original mellow organ sound to recreate a chilled feeling. Gradually the bass drums and other elements of the mix return to form the original main vibe. The mix finishes on the 3 minute 50 seconds mark with the organ, a mellow pad and finally a crash. Having listened to this mix again, I think it is much better than I originally thought and its genre has to change. Electronic listening is an understatement, it is early 90s trance with a Latin house influence. It is very well structured, produced. Variations, drum rolls, sound effects, sound choice and arrangement is spot on. My score is 10 out of 10. All you Latin house/early 90s trance fans I suggest you have a listen.
