Overall, I felt like the song could have used more layers, especially at the drops. The percussion at the beginning is a little buried, but I love those voice chops XD I think there should have been a buildup to the part at 0:57, or at least some sort of effect or cymbal to "smoothen" the transition. The drops weren't very distinguished, but I see that as more of a style thing. I think it's creative to stray from the classic EDM song structure, but I found myself sort of confused at how to register how each part of the song was contributing to the other parts. Each part of the song was well done imo, but how it all came together overall, I feel like each part was independent.
Awesome work, Jesse.
Another Miyolophone masterpiece. It's beautiful, inspiring, and holds a lot of emotion, but I feel like your transitions could have been smoother. Maybe add a backwards cymbal to tie two somewhat contrasting parts together. Absolutely amazing work. 5 stars :)
Thanks for the advice, and I'm happy you liked it :D
And now for an incredibly belated review:
I have a lot of small problems with this track. I like the intro - the background arps are nice and the synth at 0:15 goes with the flow nicely, but I think your buildup to the next part was longer than it needed to be and I lost my anticipation. I like the part at 0:45 but it sort of feels like a whole new song. I feel like the part at 1:15 was unnecessary, and sort of detracted from the flow of the track, because then everything changes again at 1:30 just for the build-up. And then there was the drop... where everything all of a sudden makes sense :P It was incredibly well mixed, especially the arps. Although I think it would have made it legendary if you had added some louder shakers when it repeats at 2:00. I really liked that you added the bass in at 2:30, it got me groovy again before I got bored with the bridge :) The melody at the second drop was greatly appreciated, as I felt that for most of the song the track was lacking a solid melody. As the long came to a close, I felt like the arps were a little overpowering, but it wasn't too much.
Enough criticism from me. All of it is just to mold this song to my taste. Really, you know better than I with what to do with your track. I just wanted to share my feedback. I enjoy listening to this very much. It's catchy, well mixed, and has a lot of variation. Keep making awesome music, Lockyn!
thank you for the feedback - I appreciate it and I'm glad you enjoyed regardless!
Aw, YEAH! That percussion got me bouncing around like nobody's business, and your piano never fails to impress :)
thanks man <3
This couldn't be better... I LOVE IT XD
At first, I didn't warm-up to this track because I'm used to listening to really heavy dubstep, dance, drum n' bass, and trance music, but this track made me feel like someone splashed a bucket of cold water in my face like, "Wake up and realize how beautiful this is." This is absolutely incredible... I am in awe. Awesome job, Troisnyx. Hands-down 5 Stars. :)
Oh my. Thank you so much. <3
Glad to hear some original stuff from you again Lockyn ;) This was a fun track to listen to. It's the sort of thing I'd listen to on a rainy day to cheer me up. (Yeah, it's a rainy day right now over here :P) That bass was such a big part of the song... I wasn't impressed by it. :( It got better by the second drop but for the first 3 minutes I was a little disappointed. Not a big problem, though. This still deserves a good 4 stars imo. :) Peace! More original tracks soon?
I'm glad you liked anyways! More original tracks coming definitely
This is awesome! I love how smooth every transition is, you can barely notice some of them. When the EDM part came I just fell in love :D It added a "full" feeling to the song (if that makes any sense). It sort of filled in the space that the strings, piano and light percussion couldn't. 5 stars, downloaded it, followed ya! :D
Thanks for the support, Assassin! I'm glad you enjoyed both aspects :)
Y'know Jesse, I figured the Ludicrous Speed album was your limit for fast tracks but you proved me wrong. I love this, a full five stars for Hydra! It's too fast to dance to though :( I'd break my neck or give someone a seizure trying. :P
I listen to this every day :) I love it. It'll wear out eventually but until it does, awesome job man XD
