This is an NGADM Round 1 Review
Since I was already pretty familiar with your music before you even auditioned, for round 1 I was hoping to get some funk-electro hybrid from you, so you can imagine my surprise when I got a... funk-electro hybrid, haha. Not that I'm complaining; you're really good at that style and I really like it. This is very funky and fun to listen to, with interesting synth choices and some sweet production value.
But man, there are so many places this track could've gone to. It's monotonous and really didn't go very far beyond the main ideas and groove that you establish during the first quarter of the track. Even the break halfway through is just the intro with a few more sounds tacked on. I would've killed for a lead synth solo, some new sounds, or even some crazy stuff like a switch to swing tempo or a new time signature.
So yeah, in my opinion you played it too safe for this track, which is a shame because you've got so much good stuff going on here! Regardless of that opinion, this is still a ton of fun to listen to and a solid submission overall. Good work.
