Cool track

i do be vibin

Nice Retro vibe.

sweet beets

Sweet melodies, drum fills, patterns, and lovely harmonies between instruments. Very professional stuff Ketyri <3. I'm only gonna nit pick a minor mix detail, I'd have sidechained everything tonal just a little bit to allow the kick drums to pop some more. I may even include the snare in that sidechain signal. Only a sound nerd like me would nit pick something like that though, very minor detail to point at. Some of those lead synths sound like they hit with more emphasis than the kick drums. I'm really listening to those kicks, wishing they could punch a little harder. While a side chain signal would max the fidelity, another mid freq bass drum layer might also help? I usually have three bass drums layered regardless of genre to create a nice solid kick sound and I'll use one or two of those layers on off beats to create the illusion of velocity change ups in the drum rhythm. Those off beat bass drum kicks are a little less powerful than the kick that falls on the first count but since they're included in the side chain signal they'll still pop a little bit more.

Track would bounce nicely as a video game menu screen or background track. If you ignored my main crit you'd still impress a programmer looking for music or anyone else for that matter. All the classic elements like rhythm and melody are perfect. Again, only a sound engineer is going to nit pick anything and to that extent you're showing off professional skills. Compression is letting you take advantage over the full range of the spectrum. Track is perfect, don't let my nit picking take away any pride you might have for this ditty. 10/10 :')

When I made this track way back when I didn't even know what sidechaining was.
