great job !

I like the atmospheric vibe at :05 and the melodic content. The drum samples seem a bit generic, but they sit well in the mix. I like the lead instrument a lot, and there’s a good sense of climax into 1:15. The minimalism there made the progression feel a bit anti-climactic, and the transition and re-intro at 1:45 felt a little lazy. Perhaps my biggest problem with the piece is that it sounds very generic, especially considering the pads, transitions, and structure. Filling in the texture with reverb alone is a bit risky. I really would’ve liked to see some more harmonic depth throughout the piece. It’s a catchy piece with solid mastering and an enjoyable atmosphere. The composition is extremely lack-luster, unfortunately. Keep at it, Dovax. ;)

Default FL Stock FL snare at 02:00 kinda ruined the track for me, but overall it was enjoyable.

Dovax responds:

Theyre actually the kick and snare stock of fl, i dont know im starting to like them a lot haha

Cool! I like it:)

Dovax responds:

Thanks man! good luck :)

Yet another awesome dovax song! This is not really my favorite because it seems underwhelming compared to your other songs, but you did a really good job getting that marshmello vibe in there. Good luck with the NGUAC!

Dovax responds:

Thanks! And yeah i know im just trying to perfect this kind of style, its the same as Sunset
