Boring stats:
-Software used: Logic Pro X, various Kontakt 5 sample libraries (feel free to DM me for details), Serum, Massive, Battery 4, mainly native Logic plugins for post-processing
-All sound effects were either licensed under Creative Commons 0 from freesound.org or are some random Kotori samples I have
-BPM: 174
-Time signature: 4/4 (with swing)
-Keys: G Major (ish) - Ab Major - Eb Major
-Time spent: ~40 hours
-72 tracks total (excluding automation)
-Apparently this is somewhere between future bass and glitch hop but I prefer "future-electro-jazz-hop"

Update 9.18.18: Collective album on hold indefinitely, so this is now a solo release, which means free downloads and GD use! Also updated the mix a bit. Enjoy everyone :)

Okay, this is cute and epic

Miyolophone responds:

Ok, now THIS is (◠ω◠✿)

Catchy shit, I'm h*ckin' jammin'

Miyolophone responds:

Glad as h*ck that you enjoyed!

The melody, the sound effects, the rhythm, everything, is too nice! Is a really nice song, it's like a mix of nice feelings, 10/10, Good Job! :)

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you!

I don't normally write reviews, but this is an exception.

I love how it started with pouring a drink, but I guess it could have been better with a little plink to symbolize how the ice cream drops in the root beer. The starting tune really lays out the entire song's foundation. It's a tune that no matter how many times I listen to it or if somebody makes a modification to it, it will never get old.

I was blown away by the first drop because of how it kept the "jazzy" aspect of the song while still making the song more intense. The rhythm is really amazing.

The small part in between the first drop and the second drop gave me an extremely happy mood, like how I hope it was supposed to give. All of those little splashes also had an effect on me.

Dang son. That sax "solo" had all the aspects of a 6/5 song. I can't stop listening to this.

I guess you could have had a lower base plucking every 8th note, but I hardly think that would make it better than it is now.

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you so much! I'm glad all the little details with the sound effects came together for you! (And yes, that sax solo was a lot of fun)

How in the world did this fly under my radar. I must not have seen the notification when it came out awhile ago. Man it didn't disappoint. I love this track a lot. The jazzyness and the subtle touches. Like the water splashes, and the HAI every now and then.

10/10 would listen again

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed!
