*ps: this is the first track i've legitimately mastered correctly lol


Fireflies is my favorite Teminite song, and I didn't think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! You've exceeded my expectations by so much! I think music design is what you were BORN for. 5 stars, if I could I would give more!

but I can't ;(


DJ-Zyzyx responds:

thanks so much lol xD

Sexy song, 5 stars

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

thanks bro!

i've heard this synths from somewhere before. what synths did you use? <3 nais one

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

I made them with serum :) and thanks bro!

Whoa! Now THAT was a banger :D
You did an amazing job remixing this. I enjoyed the entire thing. The synths were happy and powerful and you kept the Teminite vibes throughout the song. You did great!

The only thing that I, and many others probably don't like, is that the sidechain in the buildup is WAY too strong. Other than that, no complaints here.

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

Thanks bro :)

Okay, I'll admit I only found this because I was searching Teminite to see if his music was on this site. Sadly, all there is is mediocre remixes of his stuff, but I decided to click some to see if they were actually any good.

And holy crap I was blown away! I gotta admit I wasn't expecting anything to be this well done. You managed to completely change the feel of the song, adding your own melodies and drop, while keeping the Teminite feel. This is just so sick!!

Now, I gotta give criticism too. I am a complete newbie at production, but I think that what I say should be helpful anyway. There's one thing that's bugging me about the mix, and that's the kick. It's way too loud, and there's too much sidechaining, Especially at the buildups. It kinda hurts my ears to be honest.

Other than that, it sounds perfect to my untrained ears!

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

Yeah, I get the same criticism for this song a lot xD The side chain is a bit too powerful, and The kick is too loud. Thanks for the feedback tho mate :)
