My NGADM 2017 Submission. I'm up against the extremely skilled @SoundChris.

We thought we'd try our hand at EDM for a change. As an 80's child...it had to be Synthwave for me. This was Fun to do, so maybe I'll produce some more of this in the future.

Thanks for listening!

I like the 80s style in this song ! It's a very good song ! :O
It reminds me "The Mysterious cities of gold" with the synthwave.

Thanks RyeAkai!

As an 80s child, it's full of nostalgia (that I can never let go of)!

I like the atmosphere at the beginning. The piece is catchy, and I applaud you for avoiding 4/4. The production is very clean, although that bass synth is a little generic. Still, I thought a lot of your leads were rather refreshing. There’s a lot of tension in this piece between the ascending synth lines and somewhat ambivalent melodies (not cheerful, but not dark either). I think this piece might also need some more shape structurally. It has a sense of continuity that adds to the tension, but there’s never really anything particularly cathartic or contrasting in the dynamics, phrasing, or otherwise. I think it needed more of a bridge or breakdown - right now it feels uniformly spacious and thick texturally. The modulation at 3:18 helped channel the energy a bit, but it didn’t add much new to the piece from a texture standpoint. I also thought the ending was a bit lazy, as fadeout-esque techniques usually are. Overall, the atmosphere is really cool here, and the melodic elements of this piece are really strong. This is an enjoyable piece. Keep it up, EvilRaccoon! ;)


Oh man even tho this is an original piece its giving me crazy nostalgia!

Yeah Synthwave!!!!!

It's done well too. Really enjoy the drums

EvilRaccoon responds:

Thanks Spadezer! :D

Woah yeah! Sounds like a rematch between Van Damme and Bolo Yeung. I really like Chris's track too, so I can't pick a favorite in this battle. Good luck to the both of you.
