Listen to a remix of this song - https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/789943

I wanted to challenge myself and create a song that only uses one melody, but does not get repetitive! I hope you enjoy! :D I would love to see people create a song using only one melody too! :D

Do u kno da wae?
Da wae to make an awesome song!!! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!!!

I really love those harmonies and the chang-ups in the feel of the song. In addition to being catchy as hell! :D

Great song and I have listened to it many times and tried to us it for a geometry dash level, but it sadly did not allow your amazing song. I also love the rhythm of the song.

Sorry it is not on GD, RobTop does not really allow anyone to have their music on GD anymore, but I'll keep trying!

Reminds me some old school kind of techno beat, i don't remember it's name, also probably close to "Fucking Fresh" by "Pimp! Code" - Takes me back

0:00 - 1:30
Pumpy start, the trumpet sound starts very quickly, an automation could help here, i would probably prefer to see something like slowly fading, an intro is all about making the listener an easy to listen melody, chilling, slowly advancing to the beat, the 2nd voice/trumpet is filling in things and I like it though, I would remove the offbeat bass completely for the intro and add chords instead, but I guess that's kind of an option you could make and preference.

The beat starts alright, I would love to see a more powerful kick, you could achieve that with a simple sidechain on the main melody and by making the melody a small cut before the note ends, (decrease every note size by a little)

Sounds very good from there, if you applied the things i said it would be more dope, still is, melodic wisely it's a very good song

2:35 - END
Now that would be very good for the intro, but I Guess u created another intro there :D let's see if you have something new to introduce.
Nope, never mind, nothing new to introduce, you could alter the melodies a bit here and introduce new sounds (Change the trumpet sound to something else, or at least change the chord progression, or make the beat 3/4 instead of 4/4). Well I guess it's not bad that you used it again, I do it too many times, it's repetitiveness that makes the melody stuck in the head anyway, We should both start to avoid that in the future though haha...

Overall, I think you are pretty close to the music I create (old Dance, eurodance, hands up, etc.) And if you need any help I would be glad to help you, just send me a message! Downsides on this track is the lack of sidechain, the non pumpy kick, i wanted the offbeat bass more pure and pumpy, the repetitiveness of the melodies makes it a little boring after a little, but it was a great song and the melody patterns are very good and can easily stuck in your head.

Keep it up, I hope you will take any advice seriously and start doing better, Have FUN!
