My main project for the past couple weeks, I had a creative spark tonight and finished it up. I'm extremely happy with it. We have really made strides with production

'sup, might as well leave this review.

Good stuff:
-Fantastic progression at the beginning. So fitting of your style, and a great way to introduce the chords, using arpeggios with all shared tones.
-That transition at 1:16 is REALLY good. One of the best transitions I've heard, even. I think the drums leading back in could be improved a bit, they sound a bit sloppy. I'm not sure how to fix this, honestly. Maybe try using a lowpass filter and raising the cutoff in a curve that's concave down.
-Tempo stuff at 2:00 is sweet. I wasn't expecting it in the first place, and I'm impressed that you managed to pull it off. Tempo modulation is a lot trickier than other modulation.
-Another good transition at 3:09, though not *quite* as good as the one at 1:16.
-Excellent use of reverb and gating at the end, though the gating feels a little bit harsh. It sounds really cool as an ending.
-I like those little

Composition issues:
-Not sure the tempo change at 3:20 works as well. It feels a bit more like filler time, I think things could have gone just as well without it.
-Good as the ending is, I wish it could have had more of a conclusion rather than being more of a fadeout. Better fadeout than most, but still a fadeout.

Mixing mistakes:
-The cool little synth from the very beginning is a bit buried under the strings by 0:40.
-Aaaaaaaaaaaa drums at 1:51 burying things!
-Sounds like there's a bit of clipping or something at about 4:02, probably from the bass. If you're not using a limiter, it would help a lot.

Overall: Excellent. I like it. Your composition has come a long way, and your use of effects has just enhanced that.

You guys' music seems to always maintains the same qualities. The emotions i feel sometimes when listening to your music are indescribable, kind of other worldly. Keep on living in the spirit, and good luck with any future projects.

Thanks we love to hear that! Gives us more motivation to work on music knowing some listeners enjoy it

Love the really chill feel of this song! I can tell that you've put a ton of work in getting everything to sound on its own without clashing. Love the atmosphere of the synths in the background, and I love the chill sawtooth synths. When the drums kicked in, it added much more to the song, and I am always a sucker for tempo changes. Overall, your song is an awesome one. I would love to hear more from you!

RunningShadows responds:

Thank you! We'd love to have more to offer
