3rd Track for the FUSION album, It's a Chill/Liquid Drum and Bass song. This song is named after a pen spinning trick called the Ayatori. I tried to make the atmosphere... atmospheric as possible. I didn't use any audio files to aid me in making this, this is all legit.

I'm very sorry if the track is repetitive, but it's intended because usually, DnB songs are like that. It's not to listen to and dance to it, but like, have it as a ambient background when... chilling? I don't know, but I hope you enjoy.

In its current state, the song is enjoyable; there's a weird sense of relaxation and smooth energy that emerges from it that I love; it's both inspiring and dance-capable. But I think the main issue is in the song's duration. it's just too long, and with little to no progression, it ends up being super repetitive.

The song is structured perfectly, and the opportunity to build upon the already laid down foundation is ripe. I think if you did a new composition for the second half with the same kind of style, along with a much more sustained ending that's satisfying, I think this tune would be droplets away from reaching its full potential.

The best way to utilize the song I feel is either in a mix, or as a background tune; the atmosphere is what ultimately sells it. It's a phenomenal effort that suffers from the lack of diverse elements within it. It's far from bad; just a little bit of revision could really do it justice.

Great work, although there's no doubt that you've improved your skills as a producer since!

Yea it is an older piece. The way I make music now is completely different but I still try to get that dreamy like experience

A tune to release some thought. Perfect I remember this one.

From one DnB producer to another, you've got it. Got what you say? Just...IT. You know?

Simply amazing. I literally made a Newgrounds account JUST to tell you how great this song is.

wow , thanks, i never knew people would go that far just to say that lol, means alot bro c:

Production quality is nice. But one of your layered snares is from an old break and I can hear it phasing slightly. The bassline is nice and subby how it should be. Try and automate a filter on your bassline so it has more of a characteristic in your your drums. It'll give it more of a flow and make it less repetitive. Also, there is no punch in your kick or your snare. - It rolls really nice with your hats and such, but it just needs that little more beef to bounce it to some big chill tune. I understand and hear what you've tried to accomplish and you've nearly nailed it big time. But it just needs a little more work. Do work on it yet though if you ever do decide to change something.

Do it in a few weeks time when you're mind is fresh from the original idea you had. Also D&B shouldn't really be repetitive as it has many variations on the 4/8/16/34/64 bars within your structure of loops, basslines, leads, etc.

I love what you've done, I really do. I want to hear it at a more professional standard, however. - Hence why I have took my time to aid you in your accomplishments. :)

Big tune, but needs bigger variations! - Listen to an Evol Intent track or something and see what he does in his variations as a small guide or something.

Once again, well done. :)
