I've hear your stuff and I gotta say that it sounds quite nice!

Beat 1: reminded me of Prodigy - Daimonds. Is it the same sample? Anyway this beat has a nice vibe going. I like the layered style of the beat. The drum pattern is a bit dull, but again, nice work!

Beat 2: this beat is kinda like eastern music meets western music; the eastern style percussion and roaring guitars. Very original sounding beat. Drums are better on this one.

Beat 3: nice sample! the bassline sounds a bit off to me though, not in tune with the rest. I like the switch up near the end to the softer melody. Great atmosphere here.

Beat 4: banging beats! not to sure about using the JMT sample though (haven't heard the original). I like originality and not recycling other peoples material. Anyway it sounds quite good.

Beat 5: again you used a JMT sample (from the violent by design album, can't remember the track name), it is a nice sample, but please keep it original (just my opinion). Drums quite nice on this also.

Bottom line: it is hard to judge your beats from low quality sounds, but they sound ok to me! It sounds like you are very much into creating true soundscapes with their own atmosphere. Some of your beats are quite complex and I like that. That's creativity. However, some of the sample choices are not that original, because they were used before by other artists. But other then that I liked what I heard. Keep it up!

Hmmm it's good to listen new darkside beats.

"through many eyes" is a really nice work. Very sad. I love this beat.

"operation undercover" original sound with fucking fat drums. Not my kind of beats but interesting.

Hmmmm I love the drums of "new problems". Fucking good work on it. Nice atmosphere; a solid beat no doubt.

"i know"...arg this melody. I love this sample. Your drums are...BANGING!!!!

"the day the stars fell" is really nice too. Good voice sample.

Very solid beats. A real style.

thanks for all the feedback people much appreciated

prisma i don't think that is the same sample as the diamonds track they sound kinda similar but mine has more weird sounds happening....as for the jmt samples the ''i know'' track was made as a request to someone and ''the day the stars fell'' was made for a competion using the retaliation sample also i can appreciate what u said about being original as thats what i love in beats as well.

"New Problems and I Know" Are dope.

its been a while since i heard your beats. I like your style a lot. A lot of samples and changeups makes your beats interesting and never repeating.

through many eyes: love this one. The change up is cool and the bassline is banging. My favorite next an old beat you made called "king" or something
operation undercover: dont like this one. Its gets a bit to experimental with the jungle sounds and the fuzz guitar in my opinion.
new problems: another great beat...

When it comes to the basslines, i usually get it from the song i sample. I do a lot of filtering and create a low vs. of the sample and a hi vs. Sounds like your using fruityloops to make yours?
nothing wrong with that, just wondering
