I uploaded the first rendition of this song nearly two years ago (link to it can be found at the bottom), but I never felt it was done. I've worked on the song on and off since then, sacking like 20 different versions since I didn't feel they were good enough.
Finally this version feels complete.

Take a listen, I hope you'll enjoy. This is not a typical house song, it's kinda a story about personal emotion; individual to every person.
--------------------
Some nerdy facts (roughly):

70 automations
52 mixer channels
50 individual sounds in the step sequencer
128 bpm
4:22 in length

voting 10 so you can keep your average :)

It's weird to hear a song here that conveys emotion (in a good way), something I love to hear in music, especially House. The piano and string sections work well together, especially in the intro. The only other thing I have to say is that the sidechain on the synth felt a bit too heavy for my liking, maybe turn the peaking volume down a bit. Otherwise, this is great, keep up the good work ;)


Shoephly responds:

Thanks a lot for the review man, means a lot really! :)

About the sidechaining; I worked on it a really, really long time, with less/more sidechaining, and could never satisfy everyone. So I ended up trying to satisfy myself on that part. xD

Thanks again!

BEAutiful :D

Very moving and touching piano, I loved it, especially those sidechained house synths! Only thing is it's a tad repetative but WHO GIVES A SHIT :D Amazing job! Can't wait to hear more like this, keep it up :)
10/10
5/5
and whatever else I can do to the track for the greater good :P


Shoephly responds:

Means alot to me to hear this praise :D
I did everything i could to make it as "unrepetitive" as possible, and this was the only outcome. But then again when one thinks about it, it needs to be a little repetitive to keep the smooth flow through it. :p

Once again thanks A LOT for taking the time to review this! :)
