Hi everyone! This is the very first project that I've ever been working on. I never played any instrument, and I started composing a month ago. So this song is made with a lot of testing, research (science knowledge) ... and determination to follow my passion (obsession). I hope you like it!

Imagine running on your own through the narrow streets of a huge foreign city while feeling incomprehensibly comfortable.

Made in FL 11

Wow I cannot believe you made this without having played an instrument prior to this.. It does sound very dynamic. The mixing sounds somewhat horrible though; as by now you probably have much more experience

BlastBeats responds:

When I made this song I had no idea what mixing was. I layered so many instruments that even a pro wouldn't manage to mix them correctly. Some months later, after I learned how to mix, I tried to "fix" this song. Consequently it lost its dynamicness, power and flow (although the mix that time wasn't too bad), so I didn't upload a better mix. The flaws in the mixing and mastering process made the song sound cool. At the moment I try to make a well mixed song sound as dynamic as this one, for I believe that my other songs lost dynamicness because of my mixing. The irony...

This is really good, but beginning is sort of repetitive.

omg ur style is fantastic THIS IS AWESOME!! can i use it in my vids? :3?

BlastBeats responds:

Of course you can! As long as you mention me in the credits somewhere. And thanks for the appreciation ;)

*me after I realised what you said*
WHUAAAT?!!!, my first song already in a video, YEAHH!!! (this just makes me too happy man, thanks a lot)

It's siick that this is your first project :D. Love your style. Only real complaint I have with this track is the mixing really. You should go through some tutorials about mixing, because if this was mixed well this could be among my favourite songs of the week :). The mastering is very well done actually.
Can't really remember when I started following you tbh, but I'm really glad that I did :D: This song is great :). Would really like to collab with you sometime :D. Love your style :).

BlastBeats responds:

It means a lot to me that you like it. And currently I'd feel quite embarassed to collab, you know. Most of the time I really don't know what to do, and I'll look like a useless nitwit. But I'd love to collab once, later. You made my day ;).

For no past experience, this is pretty amazing. I really like the feel this song has. Really peaceful, but energetic at the same time. The mastering was pretty well done. The variety in melodies you used throughout this song kept me really interested. Keep it up!

BlastBeats responds:

I'm glad someone figured out that this track is peacefull and energetic. This is part of the reason why I chose this title, and actually why I made the track. Thanks for your positivity!
