Can't say much, heavily inspired by the new CV stuff, looking forward to both NGADM and finishing this LP, this is my first track so you need to stay tuned for about 2021 so bear with me.

amazing stuff

I like the atmosphere at the beginning. Some of the synths are a bit cheesy, but I’m enjoying the swells and filtering/automation in the texture. The piece is a little slow to progress, but the production quality is pretty good. There were moments where I thought there was a bit too much reverb in the texture, but the transition at 1:03 actually works quite well. I wish there were more high-pitched tones in the texture to balance things out a bit. It’s a very bottom-heavy track, and the atonality here is a tad excessive. Great job with the energy and emotion - I would be scared for the protagonists if this was the background music in a movie - but it could use a bit more harmonic depth and melodic content. It also has a lot of tension and intensity throughout the piece - at some point I would’ve liked you to push the reset button and give the structure a bit more shape. The thinner texture at around 3:30 helps, but it’s very short-lived. The rhythmic content at 3:47 is a little hard-to-follow, but at the same time very creative and unique-sounding. The creepy outro is well-done too. Overall, solid production quality, atmosphere, mood, and compositional details. The texture needs a bit more contrast, especially in terms of pitch and harmony. A melodic bridge, greater density of effects at the upper frequency range, or even a mid-range pad drone would help fill out the texture a lot here. Keep at it, BiPolarBeat! :)

Thanks for the feedback, i guess my style is slowly shifting into more retro vibes i.e. 2006ish limewax, so i guess stay tuned for that ;)

Very intricate and engaging percussion. The synth design is monstrous. That echoey background alarm-like synth together with the organic alien wub in the foreground make a very heavy, awesome combo.

Great work!

Not my usual kind of music, but this has such a badass sound. Good job!

This track is very amazing!
