The bass melody reminds me of space pirates for obvious reasons. Imo, that snare, just a really, punchy, but noisy snare, is used too much. for this track, it feels like it needs a more hardcore snare, like some of the ones in the Vengeance Essentials packs. The leads, and plucks introduced later on are really good, but could use some more EQing. good song tho ;)
Really nice bassline, and sound. (made in serum?) i feel like this could be used in a sci-fi movie, when a group of people just got either crashed and woken up on an alien planet with advanced technology, or got transported directly into a digital universe. ? Use a low pass or high cut on the kicks, and fade them in gradually through the next 16 or 8 bars. Make the area with the snares last another 4 or 8 bars, and yet again, change the snare to a more punchy, but less noisy one.This is def. my fav techno song. High cut or low pass the noise used in the build, and make that fade in the same way as the kicks, and try to fit in a vocal hook. (suspense, before the drop) very cool 303 drop. add more acid sounding stuff, as in bass, and a higher lead, and you got a great track.
"Waterflame - Sunwalker" remake? "Waterflame - Slam-dunk League" Remake? Really nice intro, but it sounds a bit too much like a mix of those two tracks. try high passing the sweep FX and stuff, and making the high pass go down until it's just a tiny bit of low cut. Really catchy, punchy, and powerful baseline. Make the leads, a bit more EQ'd. Suggestion: in the future, when he doesn't have so much going on, see if you could do a small collaboration with WF. It really seems like it's in order, plus you could learn quite a bit from him, and his workflow.
I really enjoy the water sound, but the impact sound hits too hard, when everything else is too quiet. the bass used at the very start seems to randomise in pitch at the very end of each note, and for this style, it seems too distorted. i like the violins you put in, but for a song called underwater, they seem too, standout-ish, if you know what i mean. I know it's a lead, but try to bury it in the mix a bit more.
Undertale reference? Really cool arp, but i feel like i heard it somewhere before... nice variation right before the break with the kick, and good vocal effect. i think i heard the lead arp thing in the background wit the reverb before in one of WF's songs, like sky fortress or something :\ I really like the breakbeat/drop you have here, but try bitcrushing the drums with fruity squeeze to make it sound more 8/16 bit. this time, the snare would fit if you bitcrushed it. at the part after the break/drop, it seems like it should be a breakdown, not a build, with some chill 8bit pads and stuff. in the first part of the drop, make the drums two times as fast bit take out the hats, and then add the hats in the second half to give it progression that doesn't take away from the hard hittingness of the drop.
Here's my list of ones you should finish:
1) Bright Moves
2) Pixel Heart
4) Cobalt Fire
Hope you take my review into consideration, and best of luck on these five songs,
