I find myself agreeing totally with Kwing's review, but trying to keep things concise.

Overall, Hinkik's Time Leaper is just a good piece, with a catchy melody. I feel like more could have been done other than simply take the melody and port it to different instruments. Why not do a reharmonization instead? This is a very interesting way to spice up melodies you know well, not to mention a fun writing exercise.

I do like the offbeat percussion, but I do feel like the instrumentation of this track is so sparse, you really do yourself a disservice, especially as you gradually pare things down to draw the outro out. It ends up sounding less like a song on its own and more like a really simple karaoke track.

Also this isn't techno. I will try to correct the genre to mitigate some of the low scores I see you getting.

I think you would really benefit from just studying tutorials on your favorite genres on YouTube, as well as some basic songwriting. I see potential in your ability to arrange music, and you managed to create an ok-sounding mix on your own, which is an accomplishment. Keep at it, and maybe one of these days we'll be remixing one of your pieces. :)

1: Thanks for the Review, I will be sure to listen to the Advice

2: I don't know what most of them are so I just put it into the "Techno" Category. Once I know what each of the Categories sound like I will be fixing that right up.

I think the biggest flaw in this track is it being too long for the number of ideas that are in it. The first minute or so feels great, but the rest of it is just looping the same thing over and over, and there isn't even much of an ending - more like the loop just cuts. Remix or not, something could and should have been done to keep things interesting from start to finish.

Thank you for the Advice!

Hopefully I can fix those problems for the ExMx.

See you then!

This is the best remix of Time Leaper by Hinkik ever!!!!
