Light Pollution

This was inspired by a trombone hit from the Suite for Ma Dukes. I've wanted to swing the drums for a while but could never make it work.

This is an awesome track, take my stars.

Melodies: The chord progression for this is very... interesting. And, sorry to say, but I don't think that last chord doesn't fit right. If that's on purpose, than my bad. The melody is creepy, yet.. relaxing. It's very weird. Also, try sidechaining the drums and making them quieter, the snare is too loud, and so is the ride/hi-hat.
Mixing: As I said, the drums need fixing. Those pads need to be just a tad quieter when the melody kicks in. And it's very quiet on the entire mix. maybe try to spice it up with a little more bass?
Sound: This... is where you did well. Those pads are just amazing! The snare could use some work, but other than that, you're pretty down on the sounds!

Melodies: .7/1
Mixing: .2/1
Sound:. .9/1
Total Rating: 3 stars.

I really like the chill sounds, I think this one is really well made, keep this up. As I am writing this review I am really falling in love with the pad sounds and I would really love this song on a night roadtrip. Good job!

I really love the Pad sound :D
nice track man.

Thanks! My pads aren't actually that complicated, so DM me if you ever wanna know how to make them.

I can see your improvement track after track !
I think I'll scout you soon ! =3

Kalviter responds:

Hey man, long time no see! I'm glad you're still listening to my stuff. DM me if there's anything technical that I need to work on, and only scout me when you think I deserve it. Thanks for the review!
