Official AIM Review!
Last year someone selected this piece -- and wow have you taken it into a totally different direction. May be some of the finest olskool-y triphop I've heard in a while.
That said, I got some beefs. I need a little more of that snare, a little bit more crisp on that mix. Hi mids seem to have been cut down a bit, which leaves the bass standing out a little more than I'm quite comfortable with.
Extra points for sampling your hood. Indeed does sound like waves lapping at the shore.
Wanting a little more of that rim sound on the snare. Goes nice with your texture.
I also like the adventurous, avante-garde feel on that bass. You're not afraid to make things fit the way you want them to. Super jazzy.
Piece could have ended at 3:56 and I'd be happy. Might condense that down a bit or cut out a repeat or two from earlier sections.
I'd also tame that low sub a bit. It does take over the rest of the song a bit. Maybe cut 30 hz and under from everything but the kick.
SFX outro came out strong. Extra points for representing the artwork well.
Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!
