I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I FORGOT TO UPLOAD THIS.


This is honestly PROBABLY my FAVORITE thing that I have ever created. Not the BEST, but my favorite.


I really found a different rhythm with mixing and mastering and didnt put too much compression on the mix., and opted for a much more natural mix, MUCH unlike many EDM track masterings. And I personally love how it turned out.


I decided to finally remember to upload this after bowing out of the NGADM due to personal circumstances.


This was made on stream on my youtube channel, which believe it or not, JUST hit 1000 subs recently! unfortunately not entirely due to my music. BUT. I'm still happy about it.


I hope yall enjoy this. I have been having a HUGE case of writers block since i wrote Koroshimasu, which was written WAY before this song.


This song as well as Koroshimasu have also been put into the licensing catalog on Indaba Music! SO here's hoping it pays off!


Who knows.


Anyway, thank you all for being awesome.


Thank you all for making an awesome community. I miss you guys.


I can't wait for this year's NGUAC entries.


WOO

Overall really smooth writing. My critique would go on mix.

We're really heavy in mids -- good mixing of more live-y instruments and samples like the chimes and piano.

At times I feel, such as around 0:42 those fantasia sounding leads high up in predominantly the left channel are much too loud -- about a dB or two. They're such high frequencies, they're just going to be heard by virtue of being there. On drops they don't stick out as much later, but still overpresent.

At 2:19 there is mild clipping.

I would bring out your talking lead more, and possibly put a resonant auto-filter on it to bring it to the front more. A lot of the instrumentation stands out on top of it, leaving it to be heard as the lead only because it's the only instrument in that space moving.

I really like the chord progressions going on here and your writing itself. Thanks for sending me this!

it's funny how you can hear all of these other things but you get really blinded to your own music sometimes I listen to this over and over and I never heard a problem until you point them out and now that you've pointed them out it's blaringly obvious to me. Thanks for this review!

Hey man this is really catchy, i especially like the drop at 0.42, has a pusher vibe to it. I think some of the breakdowns could be a little more interesting but still really dig this style. We should collab sometime on a future bass.
