Eric Ortiz Boglio is my real name. Musician, Sketcher, Graphic Artist, Photographer, Blogger and Journalist. I’m the guy behind all the noise of Cirex. I was born in Brooklyn, NY 1979 by Puertoricans parents. At the age of 8 my family move to Puerto Rico, land where I was raised. After Graduated from High School I spent a year in Florida, US, the when i came back I enrolled the Catholic University to study arts. I’m Fluent on English and Spanish. Know Basic Portuguese and Italian.I was part of the School band playing trumpet for 3 years, experience that teach me how to read and understand music. At the age of 13 I pick up a guitar in Florida and spent several months learning, then i came back to Puerto Rico and kept learning by myself, influenced at that time by Megadeth, Metallica and Slayer.Started to play bass at 18 years old and quickly formed my first band called Feka, in Ponce Puerto Rico. After two years playing underground scene, the band broke up by the parture of the lead singer.2003 I co-founded Neuttro (wikipedia them), a serious band that gave me the opportunity of play in multi prestigious shows, record and released a CD that sold in multi-stores, and a lot of fun and experience, on those 4 years with Neuttro.2007 Cirex, my today’s proyect which i began in 2007 doing some demos myself, instrumental metal, industrial electronic stuff. 2009 with more experience, I released “Cirex- The Lab” who still available at iTunes, Shockhound (Hot Topic), MTV Store among others. From that point to today, I have released over 50 tracks and 3 EP, ranging from drum and bass, dubstep and industrial-metal.
There was a lot going on in the beat throughout. It all worked together for the most part, but I would recommend blending it all in a little more. If there are room for giving it a good final mix, then I would take down the dubstep chainsaw sound a little. In the first part it is kind of overpowering and dominant. If that was your intention, then breaking down the D&B part might need to be done to let that part breath a little.
The guitar is cool too. I like how that was more like a background instrument. I would also suggest dropping it every now and then to let the beat breath a little. It does not have to be removed though because, again, the level of the guitar was good as is.
As I mentioned before, there's a lot going on more so in the D&B parts. When the the dubstep parts would come in then it would almost feel like a break or a relief from everything else for a moment.
The background vocals were also cool and those work too. When you brought them up to the forefront, I liked that. My only takeaway was that it went off beat a little, unless that was intentional.
There's a build up towards the end of the beat that I think would be really fire if you brought it up to the beginning. It might be pretty cliché as most EDM start, but it might be necessary especially for a consumer to draw the majority in.
For Our Consumers
Listening to it from this perspective, I felt that it had so much going on that I didn't have enough time to enjoy each breakdown. Every time I found a part that I liked the most, I would anticipate the return, but it really didn't come back. Even if you brought a certain part back in several times, more like 2-3 times then that would act as the hook. In that case you had keep a listener's attention. Maybe the more chill dubstep part would be ideal. Or even the end where the beat built up from 4 to 8 to 16 and 32 on the drums then into the dubstep part, that would be the ideal hook part. Besides those changes, I think you got skills and good enough to go pro with it.
The final mix and some of those changes in the transition will make it easier to draw a listener or consumer in to keep their attention. To me, I feel like that's all it lacked. Again, a hook part makes it more easy to draw I the attention or even the catchy part.
The distribution will be easy if you do your research and target the areas that really like D&B. Since dubstep is on a commercial or mainstream level, that will make the marketing and distribution easier to grasp. Even when using keywords on distribution platforms.
Overall I think it has tons of potential and could be a real good single or even a first release to an EP (in case you be signed). Just a few minor tweaks would make the world of a difference. Besides those tweaks, I feel that you got skills and really good at what you are doing. I'd be interested in hearing more too. Stay in touch.
Thanks for reaching out us, Peace.
