Let's Dance Through This :: EX Rebirth

Subtitle: Take a Chance

"Life will turn, beat you down and bring you up; Friends can hurt, and make you shine when it's rough; Lets get through, so take my hand and take a chance; Move those feet through life's tough beat, and... dance"

Although it's my second post on Newgrounds, it was my first created music that I had posted before here on a long gone site called SheezyART. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/281370 is the OG Dance 2 This. I created this as a 10th Year anniversary to not only the song, but to me using FL Studio in general. Some will say that I should be better at this by now, but as a hobbyist who is just happy to see gradual improvement this is stunning to me. This song also takes cues and instruments from EthanBlazin' & Into the Stars.

This song is in progress as we speak, but my discord gave permission for me to post current progress here to NG. It's up to my patrons on where the song goes y'know!

I hope long time watchers or curious ears can agree on the strides I have made over the years. Here's to looking for another 10 years of fans and tunes, and thank everyone for the time you've given me to get this far!

I like the pensive bass riff at the beginning and the rhythmic flair. The beat is catchy, although there’s way too much reverb on the clap at :23. The mix could be tighter here. I’d suggest getting stricter with the equalization and eliminating some of the reverb. The transition at 1:07 is pretty sudden, and there’s another abrupt transition at 1:22. The progression of the piece is okay, although there isn’t a great sense of climax or resolve towards the end. I think you need to flesh out the structure a bit more, including adding a bit more shape and contrast. Some of the synths are also pretty cheesy. Overall, I like the atmosphere, rhythmic content, and harmonies. The composition and mastering details should probably be your priority going forward. Keep at it, MisterMonroe! :)
