Here is my song for NGADM'15 round 1 / group stages.

First time I have mixed and mastered differently. I haven't changed that in years. To me, it sounds much better than my old songs although it's not as loud. I actually stepped away from the 'loudness war' thing. I used a lot of compression though.

I had so much trouble finishing this. I gave up on this song several times but since I had no time left to create something new I forced myself to finish this. And, I just don't think it's that good.
I am not really glad how it turned out, as for the second drop that probably doesn't fit at all but still... I kind of like that drop. I didn't want to literally copy & paste from the first drop since that would be too cheap. The transition at 2:09 is also not that good in my opinion. I tried multiple things to get it right... but nope.

I am curious what you think. Feedback is most appreciated!

I hope you enjoy most of it anyways! Thanks for listening (and reading this) (:

WOW! This is awesome! I understand that you do not think this is good, but i like that first drop SO FRIGGIN MUCH! :)

Wow this is amazing! Great track :) This might even rival my liking for that one song I heard in one of Basalt's levels.

I like this a ton though. The second drop is a little worst than the first drop cause it just kinda sounds weird and out of place but that's really the only thing. Otherwise it's great!

Easily my favorite, amazing work!!

Awesome ambience, my fav part is the second drop and the part after it.
Even thought it somewhat doesn't fit, I still find it awesome and the composition is strange in its on way :)

One of, if not, my favorite song on this platform! Sidestep's tone is so mysterious, like the far edges of space itself. Everything seems elegantly composed into one full masterpiece. The ambient-like sounds in the beginning give me so nuch atmosphere, and the 1st drop is an impact! Its sounds so fitting, and it gives me the feeling of being in a vortex. The 2nd drop feels a little off, but its still good. Reminds me of space warfare. Overall, this is one of my favorite songs on Newgrounds. I really hope that you make something along the lines of this if you would, perhaps a Sidestep 2. Although, I hope you don't put much pressure this time as I've heard you had a lot of stress making this piece, and I would totally understand if you declined to make a sequel. Other than that, Have a Good Day :)
