Pretty standard house/disco drums again. I think my comments for your bass and percussion can be passed over in favor of the previous review. I do notice the mix and overall feng shui of your lead seems much better. Panning still seems pretty centered, and I think I hear a bit of clipping every so often.

Build up at 1:20-ish seems a bit too long for my tastes but it is definitely ratcheting the tension up. I was expecting a little more from that final chorus once we hit the thrust; feels kind of anticlimactic. No crash at the top of the rollercoaster, no insane dive or ludicrous speed. Feel me?

So, traded one small shortcoming for another. Overall, still probably the smokinest lead I've heard over the course of the competition. Smooth and all business. I dig it.

Thanks for coming out to NGRMC!

The drums seem standard-issue but everything else seems really nice and danceable; the bass in particular is quite nice. I'd noticed that you reharmonised the melody for your chords; it seems quite fitting.

My main complaint is that 1:00 and 1:13 have a huge dynamics difference. When the bass kicks in again it suddenly feels too loud to me. I like the sense of buildup that you have at 1:33. It's a short track, I suppose, and it's decently varied for what it is -- though I'd loved to have seen a few more peaks and valleys, highs and lows. All the best!

This is fat!!!!! 10/10
