A little song I've working on the past few hours. Sort of team sleep inspired, but mixed with my own style. Also this is mixed on my new AV40s ;)

Reminds me of an artist known as 'aether' (look up album called Aethersound). However, I find this to be mixed better. It's very relaxed, but keeps enough noise to keep attention. Continue this with either remixes or similar work, I like this a lot.

Wow, thanks for that great recommendation. Never heard of him, just picked up an album. I love it :)

I have a new version of this, with a lot added on towards the end. I'll probably update it or reupload it.

Very soothing

I like the combination of guitar and more 'electronic' sounding instruments.

It sounds all very simple, yet quite perfect. It got me in a really lovely mood, to be honest.

Maybe you could add a bit of stereo width to the guitar track you can still hear out the end. (I don't know how else I'd tell you which one I mean).

Your bass is very simple, just ongoing tones, which fit the style well. I'd turn down the volume on it just a bit though, I'm listening on my headphones (which have a better bass response than AV40's (which I have too).

Your drums are nice breakbeatish, a nice soft layer over the rest, which makes it a calming song. Keep this up!

SineRider responds:

Thanks for the review Mich. I'm thinking of doing a little more with this one, I just haven't had the inspiration yet. I did notice the bass is a bit loud. I'll make sure to fix it up a bit when I finish up the next version.

a helpful review? well what do you know

preety cool

that was nice...relieved my stress. made me happy. might stop me from offing my self on thursday. might. [JK] anyway, very nice background sounds, cool beat, great inclusion of another guitar in the middle, maybe a little longer next time, so overall awesome. = D

SineRider responds:

I plan on doing a little more on this one. Thanks a lot for the review buddy :)
