Hey guys I haven't submitted anything in over a year so I thought I'd start with something I created a while back ago. I know it sounds a bit like the James Bond theme, which is totally coincidental, but I hope you still enjoy it. I'm open for all criticism and I'm a bit rusty since I haven't created anything for a while. Let me know what you think of it good or bad. I'll take all opinions into perspective and mess with the song depending on what you guys think.

Aloha. You may not remember me, but I remember you. Vaguely. I was flipping through my inbox, saw we talked about one of your old songs a long time ago, decided to see what was new with you. On to the song.

Firstly, the instruments themselves are what let you down most here, I think. The use of FPC plus what sounds like Fruity Keys just don't create the ambience I think you were looking for. The drums are also a little overpowering, and while some of the rolls and such are nice, I think a more electronic kit would have provided a better atmosphere. Next is the use of effects. I think a little more airy reverb with a longer tail and some better balancing of the levels would have created a much wider and dreamier soundscape. Lastly, I'd have dropped the tempo a few notches, which would have suited the progression better in my opinion and should help alleviate the James-Bondesque tone. :P

Going from there, with a more defined melody, you could have advanced the progression into a climax and carried it on into a pretty solid ambient techno piece with airy tones and a driving rhythm. Overall, not bad. Not something I'd put on my phone, so it's not quite.. There, as a piece. And it's not really usable in an sort of scene, really. It's a shame, because there's actually a good foundation here for something much grander, and it's obvious that you have a solid grasp of what you're doing.

Hope you keep at it, mate. :D
