Yes, I am still alive O_O
After almost a year long pause in music production, I'm still not ready to return fully to composing - mainly due to the fact that I'm having exams -_- So this song is merely a pre-comeback practice something, just to show that my composing engine is stirring from its slumber. It's not my best song, but still quite nice I guess.
The original FL project for this song is actually incredibly old. I saved the basic drums and melody back when I only had FL Studio and I was still using sample loops. Yes, most of the drums in this piece are pre-recorded sound samples. Everything else is my work, though. Ever since then I kept digging it up from time to time to add a few things, make some corrections, and so on, and eventually, it turned into a full song.
The song itself is a rather random mixture of instruments and styles. I outfitted the happy little reggae-ish drums with a collection of melancholic melodies, using oriental, classical and synth instruments and even a distorted electric guitar. The result is not too professional and a bit repetitive, but in my opinion the overall effect is rather nice, and it's definitely catchy :)
I generally don't like fadeout endings, but I think it goes well with this song. Btw I still suck at titles.
Rate n review if you want to.


Wonderful...just, wonderful

This is a pretty catchy beat here, have caught myself jamming to it late at night or when just chilling. This is very well put together and sounds even better than the original...very very nice job =)

... The original? This isn't a remix of anything, this is the original, lol. Does it sound like an existing song that I don't know of? o_O
Anyway, thanks for the review.
