I had a track rejected because the reviewer said that it didn’t offer enough utility (although there is nothing wrong from a production standpoint.

I am really not sure what to change on this. I figured I would post it here to get some ideas. I may just offer it as a free download if it doesn’t get accepted.

The production is sample based. Find a loop, chop it, rearrange it, add drums.

The track a is very repetitive. I think I must agree with the reviewer that “it didn’t offer enough utility”. I would assume this means commercial viability. I’ve noticed lately that the review process is getting more strict, which is totally a good thing. I too have had several tracks “soft rejected” and “hard rejected”. This should spur us own to improve our craft.

Keep at it, your approved materials are very good. Cheers.

If this track had vocals you could probably get away with the repetitiveness. Why not try a filter and gradually bring it in with various drum alterations, add a few more break downs again with filter, but bring a new element in and cut it back out on the drop.

Drum pattern alterations too are a good way to mix things up.

Just a few ideas for you.

The quality is really low. Everything seems to be made from loops and they are not even looped properly and seamlessly. Have you got the copyright of the original sound used in the loops? The drums are not fully syncronized with the background. This doesn’t sound like a professional music production at all, more like a learning attempt. I don’t see any way to really improve it to the level accepted at AudioJungle, but it suits perfectly as a freebie that you might put on your own website to promote your better works.

Try to keep only quality tracks on your portfolio, show your music to your friends and get a feedback from them before you post your work. Sometimes is very hard to criticize ourselves :)
