Although I still need to add a few spooky samples here and there... I'm pretty pleased with the direction this song is going in. :)

Please let me know what you like, or don't like about this tune; I'll be sure to get back to you asap! :D

Thanks so much for listening.

Welcome to.... Halloween!!

Well that buildup took awhile but I think it ended up going pretty well with how it gives a good creepy atmospheric tone to the song. The rain really gives a feel of just being lost in the rain with maybe an umbrella riddled with a few holes making you get wet which kind of sucks in a way.

The synth gives a strange carnival ride and feel to the whole song making you feel kind of awkward. The backing synth gives a feel of constant rising while running from place to get candy from people since time is candy on Nightmare Night.

The drums were pretty simple and very enjoyable I think. The organ you added gives a feel of entering a safe place and yet people are dressed strangely there as well making you feel even more weird on that night. The bass is simple yet bouncy and I like that.

Overall, nice Halloween song, good work on this one. I like how it changes to a rave later in.

Not bad, but...

I think that the buildup of this song is good and that it's a real credit to you, since you've managed to get a house piece to sound so themed around Halloween. Everything came together well for the first few minutes and trying too hard to get it to sound spooky may have been the downfall of this piece.

After about 3 minutes, when you bring in the traditional spooky sound of the Hammond organ, keeping the house beats oscillating up and down in pitch is fine, but try to have the organ not do that - the sound gets ruined by it all and in the background, I'm hearing notes that shouldn't be there and it makes me shiver, not because the music inspires me, because I should be feeling tension, though all I feel is sorrow for the tune.

Other parts of the tune work well, so just polish this area and you should have something that you can really get your teeth into.

Definitely a great start.

Overall, this is really good for a "WIP" (it seems complete, but can use some tweaks, which is why I used the quotation marks.)

Anyways, it starts out sounding really good, but gets a little repetitive for about 10 or so seconds before it changes pace. I like that little break there and love the sound it has at 2:57 when the beat comes back and that techno synth starts.

Overall, you really matched the song with what you were going for really well, it's just a tad repetitive.

Also, it makes me think of a villain that's obviously evil, but is just having fun screwing around with everypo- err... I mean everybody. Good job!

Got some nice progressive stabs, and pads. The bass sounded a bit too distorted for my liking (but that's coming from a dubstep background - where the bass is hardly audible), but that's just me.

The song sounds too spread out. It's too stereo. I'd suggest making things a bit more mono and whack a compressor on the master filter to just make the sound sound merged.

Your kick drum is AMAZING. I can feel it in my chest! Really simple, hard driving beat is good ;) The song overall just needs some more effects to make it sound complete, but a very good start indeed :D

Good job man!I don't normally listen to house, but when I do, I listen to the good stuff ;)

Hey thanks HyperTrough!

"Got some nice progressive stabs, and pads. The bass sounded a bit too distorted for my liking (but that's coming from a dubstep background - where the bass is hardly audible), but that's just me."

Hey man I hear ya, I've really just been messing with my bass samples a lot lately because I really want to find a unique Bass sound to use for my tracks.

"The song sounds too spread out. It's too stereo. I'd suggest making things a bit more mono and whack a compressor on the master filter to just make the sound sound merged."

You're probably hearing the stereo separation that I messed up on here, and you're not the first one to notice x_x. (Fixed in the final version)

"Your kick drum is AMAZING. I can feel it in my chest! Really simple, hard driving beat is good ;) The song overall just needs some more effects to make it sound complete, but a very good start indeed :D"

This is also a comment that i've heard a few times recently; thank you so much dude, I spend a LOT of time on my drum tracks EVERYTIME :) (I'm realllly glad you noticed)

"Good job man!I don't normally listen to house, but when I do, I listen to the good stuff ;)"

Thank you for saying so my friend! I really really REALLY appreciate you taking the time to review, and I can't wait to read the next one!

Thanks again for listening!
Till next time...
