Crank the bass, this one is deep.

Review this shit. I'll review yours.


Good show, Old boy!

Your melodies rock man, I'm really digging the ambient feel. (of course, listening my music im sure you can understand why)

In a way I write similar to this, so i pretty much love it to death.

The good?

Your synth work is phenomenal, your overall composition is dreamy and surreal, and it really caught my attention when the big arpeggiated synth came in around 2:00.

The bad?

The drums are really 2-dimensional, without much variation in the samples. Maybe try experimenting with the glitches as well, Sometimes the hats sound off time. make sure when you use the piano roll to glitch things up, you can edit velocity and panning too just as easy, and that will widen and diversify EVERYTHING.

My advise?

Its really fucking good man, The only thing I can really say is change up the drums.. Maybe make them a bit more flowly to the synths, while still keeping that glitch. Your mastering work is delicious and I could really taste the pads, But the hi-hats should really have a compressor on them, because its making your drums sound flat.

9/10 5/5

I'll check out another one of yours, I'm interested. Much respect.

Not bad.

Loving the drums, that's definitely my favorite "part", along with the atmospheric feeling. The "bass" coming in at around 0:48 is pretty nice and blends together nicely. The eurotrance sounds nice, but I don't think it really fits in there with all the other instruments, I feel like that instrument is too thick for the already thick bass, but maybe that's just me.

Overall, it's a good track. Lacking a bit of climax (the eurotrance saw didn't deliver enough I'm afraid), but other than that, I enjoyed listening to it. Keep it up.

Sorry for the late review and thanks for reviewing one of my songs a week ago.


It seems to be mostly ambient. The gate arp at the end was the only thing that didnt really seem to work but everything else flowed well. It's fairly calming. Anyways Cheers,


hella tight son

that atmosphere is sick a deep warmth while the high end has a nice ethereal filtered choir just a great backrcound. The beat was pretty good, especially like the choppy high hat rhythms really enjoyed the effects on here. Is that a eurotrance arp I hear???? first time i heard it sound good in a song, man your are scaring me, really scaring me.

Only crit. I could give is giving the kick more mids because in the more layered parts it kinda falls beneath the mix. hey excellent track tho.

John-Gaden responds:

yeah the kick getting burried pissed me off but i only had two options

raise it and hurt my speakers

or drop everything else and readjust.

The second would've been the best option but I was lazy. >_>
I might do it anyway later this evening.

Thanks for the review, I'll check out some of your stuff.
