I CAN NOT SLEEP, ARGHH..

...So why not to finish one project i had laying on for a long time? Imagine remembering those happy times laying in hammock while sipping margarita. Ahh... At least that is what i thought when i made this. Experimental as always. Maybe some Hands Up elements? dance more like? Anyways hope ya enjoy!

I like the cute synth at the beginning. The chord progression is a bit cliché, and I didn't think you needed to establish the chord progression 2 times over before fading in other elements of the piece, but I did like the climactic nature of it and the energy. I liked the way you used those portamentos as a transition at :49. You used crashes and volume automations/filters effectively to connect various parts of the piece, and I think it's structurally a very solid track. It does get a bit repetitive by end - I don't think it needed to be 4 minutes long, maybe closer to 3 - but I still love the mood and melodies. The mixing is also not that bad. I can hear everything clearly throughout. The ending was cute, too, albeit a bit sudden. What I really think you should consider next time, though, is that I don't think you took as much of a risk with this piece. It's not very unique - I've heard a lot of tracks like this during my time on NG. There wasn't much melodic development, and I think you could've done a lot more to give more direction to this track. I think pretty much everything after the first 1.5 minutes or so is simply repeated from the first 1.5. Still, it puts a smile on my face and I admire your sense of harmony and progression. Keep up the good work, DjHoneyb! ;D

7.5/10

Thank you really much!


Sup buddy T-reb is right about the intro. Instead cutting it though just try to have a more interesting first 15 seconds


djhoneyb responds:

i might as well do that, thanks!


I think you could have flat out cut the first 15 seconds of this track. Otherwise, I thought it was great. Lots of variety in the melody and (even though I hate kick-clap beats) I thought you did enough to vary the beat that I didn't even mind the simple 1-3 all the way through. Also a really nice fade into super compression at 2:30. I think though, that after that section, when you went back to the chorus you should have brought in some open hats or crashes on the 1-3, instead of just a closed hat. Makes for a more grandiose kind of outro, you know?
