Here's the intro track from my upcoming new album "Roots Canal" celebrating my 10 years of making music. The other tracks on the album are different though.

Had some inspiration from the Stranger Things soundtrack as well as Seprix's song from the AIM contest (the spacey one). The dude's got talent. This isn't something I've done yet.

Very well put-together. You did a great job. I love the feeling, the mysticism and drama of it, and how well the layers of it flow together (for lack of a better description).

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks :)

Only complaints: kick/snare reverb at :49 and beyond (no pun intended) is a bit awkward
the snare sounds like that one in FL's Legacy/Drums folder
and the bass sounds like it was high passed a bit.

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

It's supposed to create an 80's soundtrack vibe. Thanks though. It wasn't high passed, just didn't boost it enough.

I admit I thought this song would have three significant different parts (for past, present, future=beyond), but I like the song nonetheless. Especially the first 1:30 min gave me chills, I dig that gloomy, spheric sound!

Reminds me, in the best way, of the soundtrack that spacefader used for some of his animations (like "Gamer - Turbo", if you happen to know that). Great song FMHE (For My Humble Ears ^^).

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

thanks! Yes i love his work. :)

Well sorreeee... but I think the bass was just fine and the whole track beautifully balanced.
Absolute ear-nectar! Well done :)
