Great melody, soothing synths and a great retro feel overall. The transition at 0:27 is fantastic, and gives me that retro funk feel. I felt like the song started a bit abruptly. The snare tthat plays for the first 27 seconds sounds quite decent, but if I were to pick on something it would be that I felt like it lacked a bit more hi-end. I get that you were going for the retro drum sound, but I still think it would be better if it had a bit more clarity.

Actually liked the abrupt crash ending at 1:55, though I also think thatthe crash sample itself doesn't mix well in the song.
The track portrays the art in a great way and the mixing is on point.

Sound Design: 4.5/5
Arrangement: 4.5/5
Mixing: 5/5
Art Relevance: 5/5
Overall: 4.5/5

Sounds good man, i like the styles you combined here, couldnt really here the kick at all though. Pretty good job.


MrSmash64 responds:

yea, i agree with the kick problem. but this was as best i can do. you should've heard the amount of mixes i tossed cuz the kick ruined it

Was listening to this in my car on my way back from work. A real lifter! I'm not a fan of fades though. ^^

Wow, there's some serious bite to this flavorful tune! Good variation, good mixing, fits the picture, fun to listen to, great dynamics, great transitions, this has a lot of stuff. It's like eating a gobstopper but if converted into a song.

I'll say this though, the crash at 1:55 was too abrupt, and i don't like the way that was mixed, I feel it couldve used a bright crash cymbal with some delay and slight reverb. Ohh.....a key change! This is really something. Overall I love this. Great job. It's a shame it fades out the way it does though, would've loved to hear that go at least a little longer before fading out.


MrSmash64 responds:

thanks for the advice! 1:55 was actually a mistake though. i didn't notice i used the wrong sample until i uploaded it. should've used preview :(

It like an 8/bit dubstep. Love it.
