This project was a collab with my cousin, who also uses FL Studio like I do. Sending the project back and forth and waiting to see what each of us would add on gave so much motivation to keep adding, and adding, and adding on to this song. I am pretty damn happy with the results of this one, and it truly is one of my favorites.

This song has been on SoundCloud for a couple months, but for whatever reason, I had not uploaded it to Newgrounds. I figured it was time to do so.

Please leave a review that explains what you do or don't like about the song, especially if you vote under 3/5. All constructive criticism is appreciated! Please listen to the whole song before reviewing so that your review is on the whole song and not just one part. Last of all, please enjoy!



Yis Consistancy is much gud
I loves
I much loves
Dis gut seys gud

Well, Something about 1:46 was sort of peaceful, and what follows is a lovely blur of music.
Of course it's good.
And the fact that it's 4:00+ is better.
3:00 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 8/8
Although it never really drops,
3:00 gives me an equivalent feel without going all NWWWEEOOOMP
In all, I give 8/80 m8.
N0 B8.
Good luck with your future projects!

Much respect! People such as yourself are why I love making music!

I will need the luck for future projects... I haven't had any free time lately and have mostly given up producing. I'll be back though. I promise you and myself that. Just need a little breather.

I thought that was really quite good. I liked how you kept the use of a consistent sound and formula throughout, and sounded atmospheric. It also is mastered quite well!!
Some little gripes I do have though is that it felt a bit like the song kept building and building but never really let go if you know what I mean? That's just me though, and if that was intended then I apologise. Also, I personally prefer the kick to be a bit heavier, but that is just my taste.
Overall though, 4.5/5. Would definitely listen again :)

I suppose that's my style to just keep building, building, and building. Sometimes, I really do break down the song to make some sort of a transition before bringing everything back together for one final time, as I did in this case. I have always told myself more is better, and in the end, that "more" should all be put together and sound good as a whole. That, to me, describes this style as best as possible.

I'm glad you thought the mastering was spot on! That was a major focus with this song, as I'm not exactly the best at mastering, and I'm always switching up my techniques to meet reviewer's expectations.

I'm even more glad you enjoyed it this much. This is honestly one of my favorites that I have made, and I love the final product of it. It was a lot of fun to be able to collab with my cousin. I wish I could do more stuff like this.

Thanks for such a detailed review. I always, always appreciate them. They are so rare to come by now. Hopefully I'll hear from you again!

Thanks again.

I'm glad you think so! Although, I would have appreciated it more if you had given some criticism. Regardless, thank you!
