The little sweep at the beginning was cool. I think the bass sounds a bit too loud and unpolished, though. The ghosty melodies in the background add a lot to the mood, and I like the climax into :33. The piece is pretty minimalistic, though, and :47 betrays some noticeable mixing problems. The drums are rather weak and indistinct, and it sounds like the bass is getting distorted on the downbeats. Equalization and side-chaining are both tools that could seriously help you there. The piece is quite catchy, though, and you have a good sense of harmony and progression. The transition at 1:47 was a little melodramatic, but I enjoyed the structural contrast that the following breakdown offered. The piece comes together texturally at 2:36, but it felt like the melodies were interfering with each other a bit there - one of them isn’t really more prominent that the other, and that makes the section a bit confusing to listen to. I also thought the ending was a bit lazy. The sound design wasn’t that creative or original, either. Overall, it’s a pretty solid track. I like the mood, melodies, and structuring. Keep at it, BoonanaOfficial! ;)

Thanks for the extremely detailed review and I hope to compete in nguac next year :)

first review! I still think Chroma is your best track, and it's hard to remake such cool songs.
the buildup (in this track) gave you a follow :)
anyway real review. the 1st and 2nd drop could be better though, the buildup is exciting for both the drops but then the drops just ruins the excitement of the song. That dropped it down to 4 stars, sorry.

Don't have to agree, I'm a horrible musician who started early this year so...

Thanks for the review and all and im really glad you liked chroma, I just feel like everyone loves chroma even though in reality it's probably one of my worst songs lmao.
