Nice man!

If you don't have good natural sounding strings its better to use a lot of reverb on them. I see you are using longer attack on the cello. This makes it sound a bit weak. The rest of the song is pretty good, maybe the house synth is a bit outdated, but oh well, maybe thats your taste!

Keep it up buddy

Thanks man! This is a very old song of mine, but i will use your tips in the future :)

I like the chord progression at the beginning, and the warm pads really help set the mood. The beat that comes in at :12 is a little loud. I would suggest compressing and panning those pads more. The cello at :24 adds a warm vibe to the piece that I think helps the mood. I think the pads and the cello clash a bit at :32, but it's hard to tell because the pads are drowned out by the beat and cello a lot. Also, when you strip away the beat at :42, it can be a little hard to follow the rhythm of the cello. Then, I'm not sure the cello solo at :42 led into the transition at :49 very well. I liked the beats thereafter, though. I think you could've used a crash at 1:25 - I wasn't really prepared for the beat to suddenly end like that. The transitions at 1:30 and 2:08 are also a little rough, and the crash at 1:42 is very loud. The coda was kind of lazily done. I wanted to see something more creative than a simple fade-out. However, I think my main problem with this piece is the lack of coherence. It sounds like you're jumping back and forth between playing 2 or 3 different pieces. You at least tried to bring it full-circle at the end by bringing the cello back, but you didn't connect the various sections of this piece very well, so it didn't really work for me. Still, I like the instruments and the moods here, and a lot of the isolated riffs (like the melody at 1:30). If you improve the coherence and the transitions of the piece, it would be a pretty solid track. Keep at it, Bolisa! ;)

Thanks for the amazing review! The only problem is that i lost the file of this song, so i cant edit it anymore :(. With you're tips i could make a solid track indeed. But that just means that i have to use it in my future songs, and i will. Anyways, i wish you the best with the contest. There are many good musicians out here!

This song is gorgeous.
Only issues is the *Ting* of the triangle sound in the first sequence, but other than that it it sounds great!
Sort of reminds me of the intro song to portlandia!

bolisa responds:

I like the *Ting*! But anyways, thanks for the review!

I enjoy this DnB very much. Always love liquid stuff. Very smooth and uplifting. I like how you add the violin at the end. I think the instruments are quite dry, maybe you should add reverb to make them more wider.

Good work. 5/5
