Have you ever tried putting a leaf on a lake and then putting a butterfly on the water on the leaf on the water and then attaching the leaf to a dragonfly with a spider silk or something and pulling it really fast? Y'know, it'd be a wakeboarding butterfly.

This track was made for CACAOPHONY Round 1. The Chips Cacaophony is the first larger scale event of the compo, and it's been really fun. This track placed second which is really really good!

This track is structurally inspired by Garlagan and productionally inspired by Miyolophone. The structure here is ABCBCDACB, with three drops and a very divergent D section, and the production takes roots from https://chipscompo.com/entry/1112. I'm in general really proud of this - I'm personally regarding it as my best work up until this point (though it isn't perfect). Hope you guys like it!

Yeah this is pretty good. I went looking through all your 2018 songs to get a song for gd, and this one had the most <ahem> adventurous fell so hi. (Lol I’m editing this after a few months. Cool, but a bit repetitive)

1f1n1ty responds:

the track's all about being super swag, so it certainly fits the gd formula

It's nice but how can it be house when it's future bass?

1f1n1ty responds:

because genres don't make sense on newgrounds

No seriously, good song. Nothing else to say here.

1f1n1ty responds:


but butterflies can't sleepwalk

they can wakeboard but they can't sleepwalk what's a sleepwalking butterfly that's preposterous

Nice buildup at the start, it was a nice touch to get an ocean surf feel to set the tone. Again at the 3:12 mark, it worked in a nice break to prep for the climax. I loved the beat throughout, great work!

1f1n1ty responds:

ocean drum + rain stick = sick waves

thank! ;)

Has a very garlagan-esque feel in the first half (amazing dedication choice!), and then takes a totally wild and personal spin towards the end. You didn't seem afraid to go all out and deviate from an already good melody/sound, and the gamble of venturing out in the course of the song really paid off, though, coming from you, this isn't a surprise. Great job all around! It all wraps up nicely, and is something I can see myself coming back to listen to.

1f1n1ty responds:

yeah i know garlagan is better than me you don't have to rUB IT IN

lol jk but yeah garla is a sick dude, glad i served the dedication justice :3 i did a crazy divergent D section like garlagan always does and i'm actually decently surprised it worked as well as it did

thank for the nice review!
