Great sidechaining going on throughout. The hi hat and the clap are extremely weak. Completely drowned out by your mix. You may want to find a way to boost those up. Maybe add a bit more during the intro, it transitions brilliantly but it's rather bland to listen to for over a minute. The vocals match the instruments brilliantly. Honestly this is really solid. There aren't too many suggestions I can give, you seem to have a solid grasp of what you want to do with the song.
Alright, I'll go mess with the clap and hi-hat, and yes the clap is pretty weak but I could find a clap that I really liked for the song. I'll keep looking around :)
But thanks for the review! :)
What the fuck, Newgrounds.
Can't you cut us semi-pro musicians some slack? How the hell are we supposed to get exposure if you zerobomb all our shit?
Anyways, amazing song. The intro is wonderful, the sidechaining is fantastic and your synths are well chosen. Your vocals are fitting to the atmosphere. an idea so that your song title matches the vocals would be to sing "i'm dancing free" and place it in at transitions like at 1:57 and at the end of this demo.
After 1:57, the sidechaining seems to take over the mix. Maybe you should lighten the sidechaining abit or add in a pad or a quiet synth and work around with that.
That's all the critisism I have for now :P keep up the good work!
I will definitely check out the stuff you said, and well, I could do the transition "I'm dancing free" but these are pretty old vocals (and not mine, got them from another vocalist)
But thanks! Glad you liked it :)
it was a bit slow to take off but when it did... :D
Well, my main reason for the slow start is for a nice mix between songs. So it's made to be played in a dj mix.
But yes once it gets going :) haha
Thanks for the review!
