Tapioca walls. little silver beads. A black box cut. forward slash blink. a million swirling things. Blue jazzy electric cloud hum.

I'm starting to notice a pattern in your music -- a pattern that may be completely moot, as I'm just listening to these in alphabetical order and not by date.

Anyways, it's delicious retro-sounding music without an edge. It still feels sort of smooth to me, and when it does have an edge it still rounds itself out into one great easy-to-swallow pill of 8-bit awesome, if you'll forgive that rather odd metaphor.

Love it! Keep it up!

LLAAPPSSEE responds:

Yeah? Which pattern is that?

Glad you dig. This song's alright - wasn't too serious when making this, just trying some random things out I suppose. Don't think its my best. Still put some good work into it, though.


most entertaining, I like the idm/glitch take on those old school type synths. This song is really getting somewhere, the changes and flow to the song are keeping me on my toes which is one of the many great things about this track so far. Hmmm, I don't know about that piano/key change (or pitch drop) it sounds a little to sloppy now. Either way though the drums are dishing out the hits one after another and the glitch rolls are awesome. I think the introduction was my favorite part, although I did enjoy the whole piece. But when the drums first dropped with the awesome old school lead....MAN! I couldn't stop smiling! Great stuff really, keep up the awesome work.

Thanks a lot for the review. Its nice to see people take time out to review. I'm glad i could make you smile. This piece wasn't too serious. It was sort of a random thing and i should've worked on it a bit more - i was mainly working around glitching up syth melodies / re-arranging notes with cutting and whatnot.. When i re-listen to it there are a lot of things i realize i wanted to change, but never did. Some of the transitions, mainly. I'm not sure which piano change you are speaking of - let me know if you want through a message with the marked time or something. Thanks for listening, man.

greatly enjoyed

however i think that that it dragged on a lttile too much From 1 min to 2 half min.it could have been much better

but goodwork!

LLAAPPSSEE responds:


Very nice

I think this goes more to the video game/ drum and bass genre.
Very ambient, especially at the beginning.
Lots of 8-bit, around 3:00 ish.
Keep it up man!

LLAAPPSSEE responds:

Yeah, i just tossed it in Miscellaneous. That works : P
Lots of bits, yes : D
Had fun working on it. Probably not my best work - but it was something different. Want to make a "Cloud City (Day)" sometime soon.
