This song feels empty, devoid of anything. It needs more. Sure, it sounds like an NES game with the missing channels and stuff, but it really needs more. When it starts to pick up at 1:20, it should have sounded like that in the first place. It also lacks a lot of variation. It needs more musical construction to it.
Yeah your definitely right it needs to be more exciting. And capture peoples ears early on.
I feel this doesn't really pick up the way I feel it could, when it hits double-time pace, it gets better, but when the bassline goes away for some time it takes away from the vibe, but when the bassline is groovin with the rest, it sounds more full, I feel it could have more of that in more places. 0:42 is a good way to start but when the bass goes high, it feels out of place and loses it's "touch". The rest isn't bad, though it's missing something in the melody that could make it more, but the melody itself actually isn't bad. Nice work, but some things to improve on.
Ok cool thanks for the feedback ill got back and work on it, and ill update it.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
