Truly regret the money I spent on Alcoholic. It was like...
... before the release: 2 minute build-up to the drop ... when it was released: 4 minute build-up to the drop
Why? It is by far one of his best productions and i wish he could produce those kind of dark tracks again!
I absolutely agree on it being a dark & phat track.
But the first 4 minutes could have been worked into 2, that's for sure. It's too long of ... actually "not much" .... happening in the first 4 minutes. And then there's not a second drop, a second build-up would have done greaet things to the track. But well, that's spilt milk. The general dark theme is still fucking great.
Honestly, in my opinion, it's not his best production mixdown-wise. Not a lot of clear sidechaining but I guess it wasn't meant to be. (if in Winamp, activate the EQ, pull down all the sliders on the bands except the lowest one, maybe leave the second lowest one up .... maybe compare it with Bass Weazal's 'Kill The Fox' if you have that as a 320 kbps mp3)
