I think that I got the percussion perfect in this one, it almost sounds like a premade loop.


This is dope!
The drop is so unique.
And the quality is unreal.

Jayk-O responds:

Thank you!
I tried hard to make it unique

I don't think this piece is terrible and in fact it does have a good structure and a somewhat melodic base, while the atmosphere's a bit lacking. I think the piano could have needed more reverb in order to bring out a spacey, chill atmosphere because right now it feels rather dry and in terms of expression, and it honestly doesn't really offer much at the end of the day.

The wobbling bass while it's exactly not the best in the field does its job decently, although I would have loved some more variations and perhaps more grit and distortion to bring it more character and presence in the mix. The mastering is performed well with only very minor issues relative to limiting/compression, but it's somewhat tolerable.

Now the synths that play the various chords could have been in my opinion brighter and less prominent in the mix, in order to leave some breathing space for more background instruments like a sidechained pad and rhythmic/sequenced synths. I have nothing really to point out about the drums, there's a good "punch" and even the snare that could feel week at a first glance, at the current state of things can fit well. Maybe the hats could have had more of a presence since the high end feels kind of empty, along with the crash cymbal, but they're otherwise well programmed.

thank you man! :)

Wicked beats keep it up! ^^

Jayk-O responds:

I shall!

I feel the piano is out of place here and takes away, but other than that, nice synths. It's good till the buildup but was very disappointing as far as the drop and wobble bass goes, not fond of it. The percussion is good, mixing good but it becomes chaotic and that wobble bass, i just don't like it. It's repetitive and needs more structure, it was good till the buildup though.

Jayk-O responds:

I can't help but get a little angry that your review is full of things that you "don't like" considering the song is about skill, not personal preference. You don't like that bass or build up? Great they're not bad, I programmed the synths myself and mixed and mastered everything extremely well. If the song was really lacking skill you would be able to give me better advice than "I just don't like it"
