Great song mate! It makes me feel that I can do everything I want. Its so calm and happy(?) at the first half, and in the other half is powerful in some way and makes me feel like I'm in some trouble, like science fiction, with action, perhaps because I took the wrong bus xD

Cheers from Chile :D

Thanks man! never take the wrong bus

This is really cool! I love the entire vibe. The only thing I might mess with is the lead during the first minute and a half. It sounds a little dry in the mix. Maybe just turn the volume down a tad if nothing else. Just a suggestion though. It doesn't sound bad or anything and it didn't even bother me at all after that first minute and a half. Great work overall!

Yeah I was trying some weird things with the way I mixed the whole thing. I was pretty much automating a low pass filter a lot in the first half of the song. I also don't think it ended up really helping the track either, but eh. I was experimenting. Thanks for the review!

Nice relaxing music. I usually prefer songs that are more upbeat and exciting, but I have to say I'm impressed with this one, it calms me in a way. Good job! Also, don't worry, I never take the wrong bus. :)

Dreamy intro, im liking the soundscape already... transitions into a solid beat. I like the synths, the whole song has a good sense of melody. 2/3rd's in, the the song changes gears again, solid fade out.

Solid tune, going to have to listen to it again.

Hi so here's my review:

You have a nice soundscape at the intro a little too digital and thin soundwise though and it's also pretty long. The chordsound at 30secs is really thin. The kick and snare are pretty minimal nothing i like too much and nothing stands out as particularly awesome. The lead at 2:20 spices things up nicely. Then the breakdown which sounds disorientating and hasnt really got any clear direction and feeling. The beat after that is also pretty bland and nothing too special or ear catchy. The mix fits better though from there on out and everything gains a bit of momentum. The 16th sound at 4:20 (what a time to bring somethin in the mix!) is really nice though and sounds fat. And after that the outro is well done imho.

So you have a vibe going on with this track, there is emotion, but I think you could have come up with some more creative Ideas for the drums and layered your sounds a bit more so they gain some depth.

Overall you have nice tune here but nothing too special.
3.5/5

I lol'd at this part. Thanks for the thought out review! I tried to vary the drums at one point, but idk I just ended up keeping the simplicity. I thought it fit the song better although i'm sure it's possible to spice up the drums and make it fit the song well, I just wasn't able to do it myself.
