Hey guys! :D

This track is for 2017's NGADM: Round of 64.
I'm against DivoFST: http://divofst.newgrounds.com

Let's go on a Quirky Quest. :)

I decided to put my own twist on the Trap genre: the result is a joyful and blissful track.
Yes, the genre states that this is a Video Game track, though it does have a bit of a Video Game-y vibe to it. :P

I'm quite happy on how the track came out to be. ^_^

MrKoolTrix responds:

Thanks! :)

I like the melodic content at :05 and the cute synths. The section at :39 with the hip-hop influences also sounded really cool, and that post-chorus at 1:35 is also enjoyable. Sometimes, your transitions and chord progressions are a little cliche, although I really like the sound design of the piece. It’s really catchy and refreshing. I think you could use a tad more variation within the phrases of the piece - for example, the sweep/riser combo at :25 is the only thing giving the piece a sense of direction, and you use that combo as a transition a lot in this piece. Still, solid work. Enjoyable melodic content and production quality. Keep it up, MrKoolTrix! ;D


MrKoolTrix responds:

Thanks for the constructive review! :)

Amazing! This is really cool, I like your style!

Good luck in the NGADM! Its going to be hard to win you ;)

MrKoolTrix responds:

Well, thanks! Good luck to both of us. :)

OK, so I like this track. A few thoughts on this:
-I really like how upbeat it is! The upbeat synth and the kick combined with the clap in the buildup make it feel really bouncy. Good job with that :D
-You put a huge emphasis on the synths and the mid-high range. This made it sound really melodic and nice! But on the downside...
-There's not much a bassline. Like, at all. You really need the bass and the sub bass range to give it heaviness. This is especially true of trap. Even upbeat trap.
-Speaking of trap, this lacks some of elements that make trap, well, trap! Things like 808 kicks and high hat rolls. (you know, those hats that sound like a sprinkler) The only thing that makes me know this is trap (besides you saying so) is the snare.
-The mixing is pretty good! Nothing unique or special, but it's still well done. No muddiness, everything is panned well.
-This song has a lot of movement. It's really upbeat, and there's no part in the song where I was bored or disinterested.

Overall, you got some nice stuff, but some key elements are missing here. 4/5 though, good job, and GL in the NGADM! ;)

MrKoolTrix responds:

Thanks for the constructive feedback. :D

fun super uplifting dub steppy electronic! i think the mix could be a bit better to accentuate your cool rhythm work during the drop sections but i like this track!

MrKoolTrix responds:

Thanks for reviewing! :)
