Really cool and atmospheric! I like the dissonant, melancholy vibe. It
evokes the imagery of exploring a once-futuristic city, which has since been burned to the ground. The bell instrument is mixed in perfectly, and I really like the subtlety of the guitar(?) in the background. It only flares up when it needs to, and it adds tons of atmosphere instead of overpowering the other instruments. I also dig the distant white noise. That staticy sound is a staple in your tracks, but I think you've completely mastered it. It always manages to add personality to your beats, instead of muddling everything up like it does when I try it xD
That said, I think the kick drum could have been a little more punchy. It doesn't quite have the impact that it needs for a track like this. Also, the last 15 seconds could have probably been cut. These are just nitpicks though. Overall, very good track :)
Thank you much for the well thought out review. I always enjoy it when people leave me detailed reviews.
The bell is a piano, haha. No guitar either. Just piano, drums and the vocal sample.
The staticy sound is vinyl dust that I almost always layer my tracks with to add to the old skool sound I compose.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
