nah it would be better if it was 170bpm and had a supersaw melody and chipmunk vocals tbh

I like the atmosphere at the beginning. The percussion that started fading in at around :20 was interesting, and the filtering and other effects really add a lot of character to this piece. A couple of your drum samples sound a little generic, especially the clap. I was really itching for some more melodic content by around 1:30, and it finally came at around the 2-minute mark. Overall, the sound design is really cool here, and the experimental nature of the texture is enjoyable. That said, I think you’ve really sacrificed some harmonic depth and other compositional strengths for the purpose of a bunch of really subtle details. The subtle details are really cool - whatever that puttering effect is in the background at 2:44 made me smile - but the piece still feels pretty repetitive, which isn’t helped by the slow pacing. Still, this is a strong effort in terms of atmosphere/mood/sound design. Keep at it, Midimachine!


Love it, Midi. This is really catchy and it has all those ambient pads I always love hearing in your songs. Great job, bro <3 ~Skiddle, Zombiez, -/darklight./-

Writing as I listen. The beginning kind of reminds me of The Knife's style of music. Love that beat that just picked up at 0:33. The mixing is really nice, wide and clear. Satisfying to listen to so far! I'm at 1:12 now and really enjoying the pace of this. Build up around 1:27 is really nice. This new part at 1:32 is nice too, but perhaps it could be a bit more dynamic. 2:06 - yeah like that, that's better! Needs some cool arabian vocals though because why not. 2:35 - this is a pretty nice part too! The track's perhaps getting a bit repetitive at this point because there doesn't seem to be too much alternation. Although the structure led me to expect the ending, for me, that last beat was still a little abrupt and underwhelming.

All in all, really enjoy the mixing on this and the attention to detail. The sound design is great and I love the elements you added, and the general pace of the track. Maybe it would sound even better with some vocal elements too. Great submission for this round! You have a lot of talent.
