I like the beat at the beginning. The synth at :03 seems a little undecorated and simplistic, as if it’s made of only a couple of oscillators. The vocals are certainly interesting. Really quirky and experimental vibe here. I’m enjoying the atmosphere and the delay effects on the vocal samples, and the guitar riff that comes in intermittently starting at :42 fits the somewhat uncertain-sounding nature of the texture well. The texture feels somewhat minimal at times, lacking bass tones when the one lower-frequency riff cuts off. That said, I like the thicker feel of the mix by around 1:36, and the production quality is clean here throughout. The melodic content in the vocals is really cool, but I wish you hit the piece home a little more towards the end a little more with another emotional height. This one-climax model here seems a bit compositionally risky, although the quaint atmosphere does keep me engaged here until the end. This is by far the most unique-sounding piece I’ve reviewed so far for this composition. Rather haunting tune overall, my friend. Really sweet sound design, production value, and rich atmosphere. May I ask what the lyrics? The reverb makes them a little hard to make out. Either way, I sincerely hope the other judges will agree that you deserve a spot in the next round. Really provocative piece, man. Keep up the good work! ^_^

Alright KB. I'm glad you still submit here. Hope you're doing well mate.

This track mate is right up my street. Sooooo cool. I admire the general simplicity and how you create an exquisite tension that has release exactly when required. This is not to say the track is basic, i can hear all the layering, harmonics and instruments perfectly. It's an incredibly well balanced mix. The glitched and bit mashed beat is excellent. You're vocals as they always have been are great. Some may consider them too distorted but I don't. I would maybe try a call and response with a clean vocal....maybe. I love the cross panning on the supporting vocals.

All my fives mate. If this is on an album send me the link, i'll buy it.

As always, love your music.
