A synthwave song I made for the 2018 Newgrounds' Re-Mix Competition (NGRMC). Basically I had to take this short melody and chord progression - https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/821148 - and remix it into a full length song. I chose synthwave because I'm kind of into that retro sound right now. I was influenced by the soundtrack to "Turbo Kid" when I worked on this one.

CD artwork is "Enigmas" by the very talented artist, liransz, from https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/liransz/enigmas

Nice warbling synth play; something we tend to see less of in the synthwave genre today that I wish would return.

My singular complaint by 0:39, bass is just a hair too loud -- or the percussion is not cutting through enough. Try a gated reverb on your snare/other pieces.

I do really like that drone. Never too overt, always quietly doing its job without complaint.

Phrasing at 2:14 is a bit off. The straight toms and later fills don't really go well with the synthwave feel you've got going on. I would have spaced those throughout the track as variations at the end of an 8 bar or 16 bar phrase.

Nice chord at 3:05 with filter modulation. Totally unexpected and would have loved to hear more of, earlier, but did its job.

Smooth piece, man. Diggin it. Thanks for coming out to NGRMC!
