This song is such a mood, gawd... I love this lol.
props to you for making such a beautiful track! im stoked to hear that you put so many little things in the song that make a big impact on how the song is received by the listener. imo a well spend 85 hours and well worth it.
I like the pensive mood at the beginning and the atmosphere. Really cool use of vocal samples and sound design. Where are the vocals from? I love it when that grouchy bass comes in at 1:05, and the riser at 1:54 is really cool too. The more melodic content at 2:05 was a nice change to the texture. There are a lot of minimalistic moments in the piece, but overall I really like the progression, texture, and instrumentation. The production quality is also rather sharp. I suppose I would've liked the vocal samples to come back a little earlier, though. It would've offered a nice relief to the repetition that characterizes most of the 2nd half of the piece. Still, I can tell you spent a lot of time on the mastering and mixing effects here. Strong work! Keep it up, Aliaspharow. ^_^
This is very nice. A lot of pieces that have at least some emphasis on the rhythm/drums tend to compress/crank the volume to the point where things get muddied/distorted or sidechained to oblivion (where said sidechain is very obviously - and obnoxiously - pulsing the rest of the piece). I daresay you do NOT do that, and you got the 'secret sauce' just right here on that count. Good job :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
