Hi NG, here's another video game like song. I made this one special for the RAC7. I'm representing The Netherlands

well holland isn't famous because of it's techno music. But i geared up the BPM to 160 and i also added a DnB/VG drums. I did this because there is 1 guy here who is famous because of it;s really great VG and he's Dutch also. if you are wondering who i meant the it's ParagonX9. so i gave it a VG fundation ( the drums) and added on top of it a Techno melody

I hope you enjoy this one


great music

Thanks :D

The beginning is very evocative of a Modern Sonic stage (especially something you'd hear in Sonic Colours, or even Unleashed). I quite liked it, it did make me smile.

After the intro, though, the bass and drums could be a bit more driving -- I imagine some tension actually building up from the end of the intro to the beginning of the verse. That lack of buildup actually made me feel like it either had an anticlimactic start, or something went missing.

I quite like the synths you through around 1:03. The section around 1:20 also sounds happy. But again, with a bit more pumping bass and driving drums, it'd make people get up and dance out of happiness, you know what I mean?

2:29 onwards was a classic example of good buildup, considering how the main theme was repeated a number of times in the piece.

I have no complaints about the mixing; nothing seems really hard on my ears. It's just the musicality that I'm able to comment on for this piece. Still congrats on landing your entry to the RAC, and all the best!

ForeverBound responds:
