So, this guy paid me to do an interesting combination which can only be described as Symphonic Synthwave. It's quite different than anything I've ever done. It's for this guy: https://www.facebook.com/drewsartdoesntsuck/

I'm currently having a commissions sale, so if you want to order a custom song from me, you'll get 25% off until August 12th! More info here: http://www.flareheartstudio.com/catalog

PS: It's supposed to loop but every time I put the format on loop, it wouldn't play at all. :/

this is what synthwave should be about.

Interesting! Lots of catchy melodies, good chord progression, and clear mix. It's just a little bit bass heavy, but some people like that. I really like the addition of the strings and the acidy filters. Just a good, solid piece. At 1:41 the strings were a bit overbearing though. Watch that.

At 2:24 I'm hearing a note that feels like it shouldn't be there, clashing against the tonal center. Otherwise, f'ing inspired.

I'd ask if you minded if I did a cover of this, but seeing as it's a commission, I'd have to ask your customer. *.*

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! Really? Hmm. I see. Thanks. :) Well yeah most of my songs today are commissions. Would be cool though, this took a long while to make with lots of layers.

Quite interesting one.
That 1:06 lead. <3
Keep it up. :)

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! :D

Love the kind of industrial / symphonic synth styles here :-)

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:


damn, so this is real. it's like one of the closing moments in a 90s action flick featuring Nic Cage. The good guys finally gain the upper-hand. Nic Cage fights for control over the plane, packed with explosives and heading for a densely populated area. he's able to pilot the plane into a lake, where the water is able to mask the explosion. 2:30- everyone's safe...2:45 a disheveled Nic Cage emerges from the rubble...2:58 Nic Cage makes some silly remark and cut to credits behind a blazing sunset. P.S. this is a condensed version of many 90s action movies featuring Nic Cage

looping works for me- outstanding composition that starts with a nice melodic motif and builds upon it with other instruments, great chord lines and catchy, engaging ideas throughout. the synth solo at 1:07 is b0ss- reminds me of dimrain47's melodic riffing, minus the 300 BPM 16 notes

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Haha thanks! :) That means a lot!
