This was originally a remix of Caribbean Blue by Enya, but it quickley changed. I kept a few cords and from the original songs and you can distinctly hear the melody of it in the second part.


Good Dos

This is a good song and an extremely catchy melody with just a hint of elevator music (the good kind lol). i like the melody and progression, but there is that slight repetitiveness in it. Try to work in some more song structure and you'd be really good.

And i agree with Mrmilkcarton about the bass... it can really enhance or change a song for the better. Experiment and think outside the box. Your getting there, and have alot of potential.


It's a catchy song but not very ambitious when it comes to peaking or creating a sense of energy. There seems to be a lack of drums and it seems a snare and open hihat are all you have. More percussion could remedy some of the emptiness of the drum section

I'm no genius when it comes to Techno but I'm sure a bass could of help pump up along with giving it a more defined beat. The transition to the new melody is nice but in order to get rid of a sound of repetition try to add new elements or filter instruments to give an idea of change. A bass line can change the sound of a melody dramatically and give the song a whole new feel.

As far as synthes go your pad stays filterd and almost overpowers part of the mix. Pads tend to be a part of the atmosphere when I make a song so I try to keep them lower volume then the lead.

So my tip to make a song less repetitive and to get less reviews that point it out is just to add little things that seem to make the song sound different rather then change the melody completely. Electronic songs tend to be repetitive but they keep you interested by adding new elements which can vary from synthes, Fx, Drums, etc.



It seemed too repetitive. I know it's good to have a catchy backing track, but that only works if it's catchy. ;)

Cirrow responds:

It played the same melody 4 times, which is far less then a standard techno song. It then quickly changed melodies and ended. I actually worked quite a bit to make sure it's not repetitive.

Also there were no backing tracks in the song. You don't seem to really understand music in general, but thanks for the review regardless.
