This little melody was forgotten for many months on my laptop... I recently found it in a pile of ear rape (aka my "projects" folder) and decided to share it with you as is. I think I had originally wanted to add more to it, but I have no desire to finish it now.

This was actually the first track in which I had attempted to use refx nexus.

Do some fist pumping, feet stomping, glow stick raving, DJ and partying all night with this one. Great sounding piece and it has a very happy feel with it as well. Like the style of this one. The synth has a playful feel with it going on and just bouncing around to other parts to make other instruments sound even better.

The bass is really groovy and I like the heavy bouncing feel it brings. I also hear a slight xylophone at the end? The drums here were fun to listen to I think.

Overall, great dancing song.

Catstuffer responds:

Thanks! I'ts kinda pieced together, and I'm not very proud of the unblancedness of the sound, but hey, this WAS my first song experimenting with Nexus at the time, so I guess its not toooo bad :P

Thanks for reviewing :)


this song made me dizzy from jumping around

Catstuffer responds:

Cool! Thanks :)

I VOTE 10!

I vote 10 and I R TechnoGrader! Respect my authoritah! Another nice song. Works well in loop too, so it gets bonus points ;)

Catstuffer responds:

Well thanks grader of techno! :P

Glad you approve :)

Nice lead :D

Nice :D (just maybe try to use a frequency filter with the bass at the begining)
Btw how are you doing to make such an awesome lead?

Catstuffer responds:

Would you like a little less higher freq. in the bass? I soley used Nexus in this song so it's a premade lead.

Thanks for reviewing!

Catchy, as usual.

Just like any of your other songs.
Cheap, easy chord progression, nice melody that goes with it, and great build up of instruments. I think this would fit under the dance genre.
The pluck sound sounds great too. Sidechaining the bass sounds great too.

Catstuffer responds:

Hey, can you explain to me what exactly sidechaining is? Is that just when it fades in instead of having a fast attack?

Thanks for another review! :)
