So, here's a weird thing I put together.

It just started out as an experiment to see if I could write music in 5/4 time, but it developed into a bizarre, distorted, disco sounding song.

Well whatever it is, I hope you enjoy it.

EDIT: Well, apparently someone used this in some vaguely popular Geometry Dash level, and the song kinda blew up.

So that's a thing.

Absolutely incredible song. The drums are nice and not overpowering and the synth is absolutely incredible. Gives me the chills, incredible work Cacola. My favourite song for years to come.

I feel like the way you use each sound in this piece is stunning, it really adds to the more laid back feeling that music in 5/4 can have. Speaking of 5/4, this piece uses it very well, it didn't sound like you were trying to force a 4/4 melody into 5/4 at all (which is a trap I find that I fit into when writing in time signatures other than 4/4). The buildups to the drops are done very well, and really sell the feeling of euphoria that the drops themselves convey.

There are a couple things holding me back from giving this a full 5 stars, and that would be that the two drops are a bit too similar. I also feel like I heard a bit of clipping in the second drop, but I'm not too sure if that's what it was.

Overall, this is a fantastic song with only a few minor hiccups. This definitely earned a place in my playlist!

This is your best soundtrack ever! I so love it <3
Please do remake or Lit Fuse II!

Edit: thanks <3

Cacola responds:


god i love this so much
it sounds like a song from VVVVVV but yknow, without the 8-bit stuff
i fucking adore the melody that starts at the beginning and never really stops bc its always in the background
the two "drops" sound so great too, not too happy and euphoric and not too... melancholic should i say
i also love that its in 5/4 bc the irregular sounding beat works super well with this song
thank you for making this its my new religion <3

Gives me sad vibes, love it
Edit: make a remake or smth lol

Cacola responds:

sad vibes 3ever
