I like the pensive mood at the beginning. The progression is a little slow at the beginning, but the percussive elements at :35 or so are enjoyable, as is the atmosphere. The piece is still very minimalistic during what appears to be the middle ⅓ of the track, though. You’re notably missing a lot of lower frequencies throughout the first 90 seconds, and then some higher frequencies are absent at 1:35. The transition at 2:20 was a little sudden, but I did like how you offered some structural relief at that section. The synth at 3:04 sounded rather harsh and unpolished, even if you were going for a spooky mood there. Overall, the lack of harmonic depth and/or textural fill is the most concerning aspect of the piece for me. I also wasn’t particularly impressed with the melodic content, especially during the first half of the piece. Still, the piece has a cool mood and sound design, and the production quality is pretty strong. Keep at it, Adjeye! ;)
Thank you very much for the much needed review :)
Wow, great vibes you got there!! I really like it :D Missing some variation tho, the drop is kinda one-toned.
During the drops, I tried keeping the momentum of the track alive as long as possible. I felt that changing the bass (the main ingredient of the drops) would destroy the flow of the piece, so I tried to change most other synths + drums around them in a subtle manner.
Glad you still liked it though :)
This is great, Adjeye. I don't listen to this type of music very often so I can't give an educated criticism, but I enjoy the energy of it. I especially like the drop at 1:30, but also the quiet bridge around 2:30. There's an aspect of musicality in this piece that shines through and gives a breather to the more technical synth production and fast-pace that is often neglected with this sort of music (from my very limited experience). Great work!
I hope you do well in this round! :)
Most of the work in these tracks are in sound design and drums, it takes hours and sometimes days before I myself am satisfied with the produced synths/sounds. I am glad you noticed it :)
I hope I will make it to next round as well, but CloakedSoup is also really good and I fear the worst for this round!
Oh well, being knocked out doesn't mean I won't be able to produce any more, so you will still keep hearing from me :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
