Not sure exactly where to submit this one. Techno seems like the best bet. It's a bit of a gritty/clean hardcore/uplifting song. Two faces to this one. And definitely one of my longest tracks. :3

This piece was done over a couple of days. Started out as me messing with a bass, and.. Once I got something I liked, the rest of the song just kind of came together. I'm not completely satisfied with it, there's still a few touchups I wished to do but.. It's complete, I think. And worthy of being submitted. Not too much to say here, there's not a long story. It is among my favourite songs (that I've made :P). Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Reviews are very much appreciated! :D

My leg was a little affected by this melody so I guess it is not a failure. True it ain t techno nor trance. Something between?

Mataro responds:

Perhaps I'll make a sequel of sorts to this song, but only if I get enough people wanting one. Techno and trance have a huge number of subgenres, so this undoubtedly fits in there somewhere. But between NG's listed genres of Techno and Trance, I figured this was leaning more to the former. :P

Glad to hear you liked it. Or, I think you liked it. I'll go off your 9 and just say you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review, Zenla. :D


i like the song in general but... well... you needed a catchy part and a bigger bass line

Mataro responds:

Glad to hear you liked it, but as for the bass. I couldn't possibly put any more bass in this song than I already did without seriously messing up the sound of it. Perhaps you listened to it with headphones, or speakers lacking a sub woofer.. But trust me, if you have a sub woofer, this song definitely has a lot of punch. It's just that the kick and the bass are so deep that if you don't have one, they can actually be really hard to hear. But if you do have one, they'll kick you in the chest. :P

As for a catchy part, most of my songs aren't meant to be catchy, per se. Mostly meant to fit a mood or tell some sort of story, or paint a picture. Maybe it's just because I made the songs, but I find some of the melody's will stick with me for quite a while. Thanks for the review, though. :P


Hey nice job on the song I think its pretty good. I really like how it transitions from real smooth to intense like it does. The beats are really good to and it's very catchy in my opinion. Good Job and keep up the great work!

Mataro responds:

Thanks a ton, Rhyhart. I had already passed the song around to a few people before I submitted to see if people enjoyed it and I got nothing but positive reviews, but I was starting to think I wasn't going to be so fortunate on NG. Glad to hear you liked it though, and thanks again for the review.

I really appreciate it. :D


The intro was nice, and melody 56-107 kicks ass. It' simple, but cool.
Sounds like this project is full of automation clips and hard work, keep it up.

Mataro responds:

Thanks, man. Only a seven though? I'm a little hurt. :P

If you liked that part, I would have thought you'd have liked 1:19 to 1:52 more. But perhaps it's the somewhat clashing sound of the piano playing along with it that you like. Either way, thanks for the review. :D
