Alright this is probably the longest I've worked on a song so far. I worked for about an hour last night, and probably close to 4 today.
It's my longest song yet and I'm pretty happy with the sound. Please rate/review fairly and let me know what to improve.



And I mean that in a good way. When it starts out you have the kick only on the third beat, which at first had me thinking that the song was going at half the speed, and that the kick was on the 2nd and 4th beat (which is really weird for electronica and like never happens lol) It was clear that it was twice the speed at :48 by the synth line, also you added a quieter kick on the downbeat to make a standard 4 on the floor beat.

Still, the kick on the third beat has the most energy of the beat and gives the song a really interesting feel. You can count the song in two different speeds which factoring in the ambient sounds and the dancy lead give the whole song a great hypnotic effect and a perfect balance of energy and calm. I don't know if that was intentional but it works. I also think the tempo you used is absolutely perfect.

I think this song progresses pretty well and builds nicely. I think the end is a bit sudden though and it has a few spots where it isn't as smooth as it could be. I think you could've built it up a bit more with the beat, maybe a snare roll or something.

I'm not too fond on the bass and lead, I think the bass sounds strange and not bassy enough, just some EQ problems. Don't worry too much about it right now. The lead sounds fine but it sounds like the same dance lead everyone's heard a million times and I don't know if it fits this particular song at all. Otherwise you've paired some really good sounds together in this song, which is something I personally delight in. Those pads playing throughout really make the song.

Overall I think it's pretty good, I can definitely see potential.

Hey man thanks so much for the review and for putting time into it.
I know what you're talking about with some awkward parts and I could see myself mixing this again sometime in the future and fixing a lot of problems. Mastering songs is not a strong point for me at this point. I just got FL probably a month ago now so I'm hoping I'll get better with that all over time. But thanks again man and I'll let you know if I mix/add to this at all!


Awesome! Sounds really cool! I love the ambient start!! SOUDNS SOOO COOL!
Great work of art!!!
Wow, I love this!!
I cant explain it.
Really great!
I want to hear more like this!
It just gets a litlle repetitive....
Really good though!

EricTheMan responds:

Thanks man, yeah and when I made it I sort of did 3 different melodies, but they kind of blended together too much, hence the repeditive sound.

best yet

this is your best stuff by far. i need a little help accessing the different synths. whenever you get a chance lemme know. but ya, def your best. awesome intro.


Great man Keep it up
