Really chill, hard-house track for you guys.
Just lean back.

Had it on my drive for a while, so I went in and made it a full song, it's like electro but not so hard or fast.


House, indeed.

I'm being purely critical here, and it's turning out good for you. I don't love House so much, and I don't find this song to be remarkable to my tastes, but this is definitely real House. Real. House. If anyone were to ask me for an example of House music, I would throw this song at them. Critically, for House, it is a great song. Perfect score, because it's so good for the genre. Again, I don't like House, so it's nothing I find amazing, it purely fits everything that House should be.
Once More. This... is House.

Wow what acclaim.
Thanks so much for the kind words =]

its great to see that even though you personally don't like house, you appreciate it for the characteristics.

Great review indeed.

Nice job.

I just thought I'd return the favor from a while back on Ascending thoughts :). I've never really been that big on house, but this is pretty listenable.

Haha yeah you did!

Thanks man!

Good jam

Well this was an interesting little jam and I like all the little quirky sounds you managed to add to it as well making it all the more bizarre to me I think too. The tune seems cool yet strange at the same time to me. Like how it seems to start slow then get smooth and wonderful.

What was the voice saying that I kept hearing? The little quirky sounds I hear added to this make this a greatly nice song on the ears I think.

The synth is cool and very cheery I think which makes me happy to hear it too and wonderfully calm. The bass is cool here I think and I like how it goes. The scratching was a nice touch. The drums are simple yet help the beat move along as well.

Overall, interesting song, I like it a lot.

Cool man.
That sound is a vocal sample of a chick saying, "I need you." I just sliced it up and glitched it to fit the fidget-ness of the track.
i though it made a cool effect.

The synths are happy but the bassline and ambient sound sad so it's a interesting contrast.

Thanks for the great review, much appreciated =]

Interesting House jam :p

The drums all sound pretty nice here, and you did an interesting job of building your intro/ buildup here :D. Your instruments all sound generally nice, but nothing really rocked my world about this melody though. I enjoyed where you were going with the vocal chops and everything, but after 3 minutes I pretty much realized that you weren't going to bring in a full vocal part for the chorus. :{

I really enjoyed certain elements of this song, but at the same time others could have used some work.

Things I would take a second look at:
- That bass-line could use something more
- The leads were a tad bit plain, and I felt they could have used some layering.
- The drum dynamics were a bit confusing
- Chorus build-up; but no chorus :[

Overall good effort, but needs a little work

I know what your saying.
This track was different then most in that the structure was less intended.
---there isn't a full vocal chorus, this is just a sample---

There are many things i hear i could have done to bring complexity while clearing things up, but i wasn't sure on how to implement them into the track without restarting.

This definitely not something i usually do, I don't know, I was just exploring with the glitching and beat patterns.

Thanks for the great review =]
