Tzu - Shining Star

Share Download this song

Author Comments

Shining Star, is a melodic drumstep track. Focusing heavily on the melodies and not so much the bass, it's a relaxing and almost adventurous track giving the listener the feeling of exploring the unknown. The addition of the swing-type melody really brings out the bells and pads that are incorporated in this track.

Now that both songs are done I'll get working on some of the old projects I was working on.

I just can't tell you how many times I've revisited this song!
I originally found it via Newgrounds Radio during the lockdown and it's been in my head ever since. I love the genres you fuse here. And Oh My Word that synth you use at the very beginning. And you compliment it so well through the track.
Gold, just pure gold.

I just noticed you updated your profile picture Tzu. Great to have you back!

It's great to see a fan still listening to some of my older tracks from here dating over a decade ago! I've been looking into re-releasing a lot of these tracks both with their original composition and a reimagining of some of the favorites.

Keep an eye out, but thanks for the review!


The bass in my opinion is good but it just sounds to garbled if you know what i mean. On another note (lol) the song is awsome and it deffinetly (i hoped i spelled that right lol) feels as if yopu goin on an epic journey wink wink nudge nudge Castle Crashers FTW ;)


Emotional piece.

Only one request, the4 pad seems to be out of balance. A little work on EQ would be better.

Otherwise good work.


Really liked those synths. This definitely had that adventurous feel to it. I'd love to hear some more like this. Keep up the good work dude!
