Really proud of this song, by far my greatest work so far.

This song was also made for CocoCrabz 8)

Feel free to scout me, it'll convince me to make more music, but don't feel forced to.



This piece has a cool mood and some really strong melodic content. I wasn’t a huge fan of your synths. They sound a bit generic, and occasionally quite thin and dry (e.x., :09). The snare is a little weak during the drop at :45, and it’s also easy to hear the rhythmic chords ducking under the mix at 1:02. I’d highly recommend some stricter equalization, compression, and panning to clean that up. There were also a couple of sudden transitions in here, like 1:36, including the abrupt ending - it’s almost as if you intended to loop it. I think you could’ve done a lot more creative things with the drums. I also find it helpful to use changes in the drum pattern to foreshadow transitions. The piece has a sense of continuity throughout without much structural variety. I’d suggest stripping away some of the rhythmic elements of the piece at one point and letting it breathe a little more. The piece largely lacks a point of climax and finality towards the end. Despite these strict structural critiques, I really enjoyed the melodic content and atmosphere. You have a good sense of harmony, which is a huge plus. Keep at it, 8LayneTech8. ;)
