I like the catchy bass line at the beginning and the crisp percussion. The piece is a little slow to progress at first, but there’s a good sense of build into :46. The climax there was short-lived, and then the piece seems to launch into another prolonged build-up. It seems like 1:54 is the grand conclusion of the build-up, but that section also doesn’t add much novel content to the piece. I think my favorite aspect of the piece is the production quality - very tight mix with a full and well-balanced texture throughout. A close second is the rhythmic content. That said, I think the sound design is a bit generic here, and I wanted to see you flesh out the composition a bit more. Overall, it’s a catchy and fun piece, though. Keep at it, Raj! :)

Greatly appreciated. I agree on the generic sound design; i made a concession with a lead melody that I ended up leaving out to preserve the sonics but it would have gave some unique character to the track if i left it in. Thanks again 👍

I'd like a bit less hihat volume in your intro. Perhaps throughout. And a bit more bass as well, maybe up to .5 dB more.

Overall, solid structure, great rhythms. Reverb is tasteful. Everything sounds clean and in its place. Good transitions.

I want a bit more saturation and dirt on your snare.

Definitely wanting a bit less highs on your final drop, more bass, a bit less hihat, and more snare, but still a bop.

Great work! Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

Thank you for the detailed feedback! Will listen back in depth with these notes in front of me to get your perspective in real-time 💪

honestly this is a vibe yeah, cool stuff

The transitions and moods are quite well done; my main criticism is that I think it could be mixed and mastered more clearly and I think maybe levelling and mud could be dealt with a bit better.

I love the melody and soundscape and especially the energy. Good work! :)

thank you for the detailed feedback. understandable as far as the mix & master goes as i was stuck with laptop speakers, headphones and car speakers for the full production of this one (no monitors) so those were my reference points. thanks again
