fuck yuo??

It's about time he took one!

The first part of the music sounds like the kind of thing someone would listen to while smoking a joint. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for, but I think the title you chose fits beautifully nonetheless. When I listen to this, it's easy to imagine a guy who's trying to mellow out by getting high while lying in a tub full of warm water in a dimly lit bathroom. I interpret the excitement that lasts from 0:52 until the end as the climax of the guy's drug-induced trip.

I think the buildup from the calm, quiet beginning to the sudden burst of emotion at 0:52 is great, although the abrupt white noise effects that start at 0:26 are a bit overwhelming. They sound nice, but their volumes contrast a bit too much with that of the rest of the music. I suppose this is just a matter of opinion, but I think they'd fit in better if you played the first one at a low volume, and subsequent ones at increasingly louder volumes. Doing that might even enhance the buildup to the climax.

Speaking of the climax, I think it's excellent. I love how you made all the different effects work together to produce music that's organized, but also kind of "loose," so to speak. The portamentos are supremely satisfying to listen to; I feel like they're largely responsible for the abundance of free-flowing and laid-back vibes the music gives off.

All in all, this is really nice. Keep it up!

glad you liked it. the white noise you speak of is basically a bassline, i made it loud and abrupt to add to the climax, but i could have started at lower volume or filtered or somethin, good idea
