This was a fun project to work on! My focus was to properly incorporate vocals into a track for the 1st time ever. You can be the judge on how I did. ;) I cannot for the life of me, figure out what genre I've concocted here though. :P

Track is open for interpretation. Hope you have a great Memorial Day! :)


I love it for some reason the sound reminds me of summers of day past really good for reminiscing.

Thank you so much my friend! :D

this sounds great! the beginning and the drop sound professional, and like the other dude said. the clock sfx and the flat lining effects are really a nice touches and really helps the song explain its name, Keep it up!

DJ-CJ-Doty responds:

Thank you for the 5 stars! I'm really glad you got my message behind the song. Will do! ;)

nice use of the clock sound effect, the start sounds like a hip hop track which is interesting for being a dance song.

the side chaining is a nice touch, feels very professionally done.

one part i feel could have been done a little better was the drop after the buildup. I personally prefer some nice bass after a buildup so I might be a little biased towards the way it was done here. you accentuated the lead synth above the bass which is a common trait of modern dance songs. while not necessarily a bad thing I feel like it could use more bass.

the piano part was a nice change of pace and helps work towards the next buildup, the second buildup was better but still feels lacking on bass.

overall I did enjoy it, I can tell you put some hard work into this especially with the vocal work.

9/10 and 5/5

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a good review on it! Really appreciate it! :D
Looks like you've figured me out pretty well. Yes, I do prefer lead over bass. My guess is because I'm a home producer that listens to EDM in my spare time rather than feeling the beat in the club, haha. ;)
I am happy with how the clock and sidechaining turned out too! Makes me happy to see someone appreciating the complexity of these things. :)
I hope you have a fantastic day!
