what did you make this in?

wow...the combination of the styles is incredible. You made it work perfectly!! it really does sound like water in space...which is pretty sick. trippy, alive and laid back.

-It got a little repetitive by around 3:40.
- the background wash synth could be used a bit more in the spacey part around 1:00
-The drums i heard at the beginning never came back into the song at any point in the song. The lounge influence could be a bit more effective if you put that drum beat in somewhere in the middle of the song.
- as the song picked up, i didn't really hear much that happened in the beginning at the end of the song. If you could incorporate that into the end, it might conclude a bit better, and sound less repetitive

I hope i gave a thorough review. Would you mind reviewing one or two of my songs? I'm known to pay it back, so the more you review my stuff, the more i'll review yours. thanks!

Thank you for the kind review... although...

Cons: The drums at the beginning stay in the song the whole time, they don't come back, because they never disappear - If you listen close, the cymbals are laying down the basics the whole song through.

And nothing returning of the beginning of the song? The bass + bellish tunes are also in there throughout the whole track (:

Repetitiveness... I can't but agree. But hey. It's ambient. (:

some comments

i like it, although unmastered, it sounds like it's gonna be an awesome track.
kicks are really punchy, might wanna tone it down a little.
the instruments were really well picked,
and everything has it's place and puts it's influence into the song.
really liked the drums, btw.
and the low attack bell-like pad, really sounded like water IN SPACE.
good jorb.

tijnn responds:

I personally like the puncy kicks (: But i can understand that you might think it's a little out of place for a easy song like this one...

Thanks for the kind review though ; )
