..my first attempt at synthwave, please go easy on me and yeah I know I used boom bap drums instead of 80's drums but old habits are hard to break and it seemed to fit
What are your synthwave influences? Probably Kavinsky or something like that.
Oh thanks! You are probably not going to want to hear this but I actually haven't listened to much to be honest. I have been making these songs for a video game and actually have just been listening to random mixes I find on YouTube for inspiration. I was of course aware of synthwave for years now but it's not actually a genre I have listened much to outside what I've heard in video games like Hotline Miami or Neurovoider. I do listen to some chillwave stuff though, like Toro Y Moi and Washed Out. I like the sound of synthwave but like with most EDM I kinda despise the rigid structure and format.
It's not too bad but it feels a bit weak for what it seems to be attempting. The rhythm doesn't drive it along and for some reason the constant hi-hat almost feels like it's stumbling a tiny bit at points. I liked the change at :45. I guess the main problem to me is that it's fairly quiet, the rhythm isn't very tight and I don't think it takes you anywhere.
