this is one of my earliest titles, before i could make stuff like Rush Hour. this was heavily remixed during it's life, and now this is the final product.

Bro did you actually make this- its really good

I like the dreamy guitars at the beginning. The rhythm becomes a little hard to follow at :19, though. I think the guitar and bass are tripping over each other a bit. My main complaint here is probably with the composition, though. It just doesn’t have much of a strong sense of development over time. The sound design is cool, but it alone doesn’t create enough variety in the piece. I would’ve liked to hear more melodic content, changes to the chord progression, and more drastic changes in the energy level at some point. Other than that, the mixing and mastering is solid, and I like the crisp beats a lot. That said, the bland composition is a major drag here. I’d suggest spending some more time fleshing out the structure and harmonies - PM me when you do, and I’ll leave you another review. Keep at it, Kamiakiro! :)

cool instrumentation! love the juxtaposition of chunky, chorused trip hop guitars with the trap drums. reminds me of angel by massive attack in a big way. i think all the guitars can come down a little in volume, the mix feels just a little crowded right now. the high guitar part needs some more tone shaping i think, maybe just a delay or a bit of fuzz (remember to gate it if you introduce distortion to preserve the mutes properly), and the trap hihat is way too loud. love the guitar harmony that comes in at 1:07, wish that was used to cap of every 4 bars or something instead of just playing a few times towards the end. the main guitar line comes in a little late and feels sloppy once the drums come in - but i think it's just that the whole line needs to be moved back a small amount. enjoyed this, wish it was a full track!
