This is an NGADM Round 1 Review
I feel like this song got off to a great start. The filtered drums, interplay between the fizzy and smooth synth, and the generally good atmosphere, led me to believe I was in for a treat. Your commendably intricate drum work also gave me an impression of good production value and experience in this genre.
So why the low score? Unfortunately, this track goes nowhere. The same small melodic idea that was used at the start is recycled throughout the whole track, during its ups and downs, exciting parts and soft parts, and by the time the track ends, we're left feeling like we made no progress. The structure also feels rather senseless and the pitchy sound that comes in first at 0:38 feels very out of place.
This has some good qualities, and I feel like you as a musician have LOADS of potential, but personally, this submission doesn't quite do it for me. Thanks for taking part!
