Disclaimer: I don’t want to be political or anything with this song, but rather it was meant to depict the chaos and riots going on in Minnesota at the moment as a result of the murder of George Floyd (and now Derek Chauvin) rather than the murder itself. The riots have died down by now, but I understand it is a heated issue even now so don’t take offense to a random song.

The actual song itself is a return to form in my eyes. I wanted a 3/4 track again, but this time with a unique rhythm that I don’t see much. It’s not like Illinois which had a 6 measure phrase structure, but I think it’s pretty unique. Went a bit tame on the instruments this time around, but I think you’ll like it nonetheless. Enjoy!

Edit: I think this song is really interesting because the chorus sounds like it’s in 3/4, but the rest of the song sounds like 4/4, further adding to the chaos.

Well done on this song! I really like the addition you made in 1:26 it really helped give the chorus more depth. A simple but groovy bass line, in the beginning, would have helped grab the listeners attention a bit more (unless it would have gone against the theme you were going for). I really love the whole chaotic theme of it. I'm not too sure what's happening in America currently. All I hear is that riots and that there are people dying there. I don't take any offence to this since I barely know what the whole George Floyd. All I know is he was killed by the police and people are having this whole race thing. It would be a really nice addition if there were quiet rioting and gunshots in 0:22 - 0:3` to further push the whole chaos aesthetic you were going for. Very good song well done (sorry for the long comment haha).

Note: I just realized my comment is longer than the description... oops.

This is one of my best drops I think. The buildup and release tie in well and match exactly what I was trying to go for. I’ve never really made a song like this before, with a constantly changing main melody and instruments. FL doesn’t have stuff like that, in terms of gunshots or screaming, most of their samples may as well be rated R. I know you wouldn’t be offended by this, but in case someone rated it 0 stars because they thought I was trying to diss Floyd I didn’t want that to happen. I have a habit of doing long reviews on songs because simplifying my thoughts seems unnecessary. Giving a long review shows that the reviewer cares about the song and wants the artist to take their feedback seriously (instead of just the word “Florida” in a review on Florida). And here I go rambling.
