A short tasty mysterious/starfaring song I wrote yesterday in an hour. I then spent two more hours today trying to mix the beast (without much success...). Oh mixing, when will I ever learn.

I like the melodies though. It's probably the song I've written with a name that's the most representative of the content. For what that's worth. :P


I'm sure I've heard an arp like that somewhere before. : /

I love the ambiance and feel of the track, and the mix of sounds at 1:20 onwards is just brilliant.
If I know I'll have enough files for a new folder, I am so downloading this.

No clue where :V A good deal of idm is arp based though so who knows.

Thanks for the review and follow, bro! I really appreciate it.

I love the dreamy atmosphere of the piece and the melodies. Reminds me a lot of "Substructure." It's smooth-flowing and calming. I love the mood and instruments. The mixing is completely fine! It got a little too distorted towards the very end for my tastes, but it doesn't make a bad loop. Nice job! ;D

johnfn responds:

Yo thanks dude! I guess I was being too hard on myself about the mixing hah. It's tough to evaluate that stuff though.

The concept of the ending was to smash the whole song to bits with bitcrushing. I like the concept but I probably should have introduced it earlier in the song so that it isn't such a shock! More things to think about... :)

The mixing is fine. I don't know why you're worried about it. I am excited to hear the full version.

johnfn responds:

Thanks. I kinda obsess over mixing a lot I guess. Don't know if there will be a full version.
