my round 2 submission

i felt like round 2 is progressing so quickly
anyways here is cinematic-ish dance music.

this was rather random i wanted to do something lively and simple and dance-able (if you can).. while still keeping my style and quirks...

Akai MPK mini
echo collective Malfunktion (free)
latin baby jazz bass
some bluezone transformer samples
and of course some of my own samples

Great work, can't get enough of it, 6th time listening through as I write this review, then i forgot which one of your other songs I went to, but it utterly frikin' creeped me out, so now i'm back here, no regrets about that decision. To put it shortly 10/10 I LOVE IT!

This is an NGADM Round 2 Review.


What I liked:
-This is such an incredibly unique piece! And it's quite catchy.
-The industrial-type drums in the background cool.
-Great use of electronic sounds as well as pizz strings.
-I like the chords you use. You're not afraid to change things up.

What could have been better:
-The quality of some samples (the clarinet in particular sticks out to me).
-While this is definitely a unique track, it almost becomes repetitive at a certain level, maybe due to the drums and bass going in the background.
-I didn't much care for the whistle, but it did fit the piece.

This is an incredibly unique track, and definitely stands out from the rest as such. You've got great skills as a composer!

Score: 8.6/10

Dude, I had to give a return review! The mix on this track is great! Wonderful use of space, and you have all of these instruments that should totally be at odds with each other and they somehow work great together! Awesome energy throughout, you totally deserved to win our little match-up. ;)

steampianist responds:

Thanks man and I call this this kind of instrumentation harmonious contradictions hehehe

Logged in to rate this a 5. Great piece of work.

Gonna try to not wall of text this one, but here goes

The beginning tune waltzed straight through to the middle of the "Magical World". It seemed like you were almost in the midst of a giant toy factory with toy trains there and nutcrackers here, with a slightly demented twist, like the train may be coming after YOU soon. Then you found the bubble room, a room that basically blows everything way out of proportion, even their head sizes. Then the train (I guess thats whats taking you now) speeds along and you feel the rush of wind on your face. You get thrown off and a whole slow-mo thing takes place off into SPACE (Don't ask how, I'll never tell). Then you get thrown back in, this time as one of the nutcrackers. Great song, perfect tunes used everywhere, and almost no mistakes.
