Probably my best official release at least in my opinion, and I'm happy to share it with you guys too :)

I like the relaxed mood at the beginning and the atmosphere. The bouncy synth at :24 was a great choice for the melody instrument, and the production quality here is really good. There’s a great sense of climax over the course of the first minute or so, and the drop at 1:09 comes together really well with the victorious-sounding synth on top and the bassy wall of sound below. The rhythmic content at 1:54 was another highlight, and the crisp percussion sample that comes in at 2:06 also sounded good. I like the more relaxed mood at 2:42, although I would’ve liked to hear a climactic moment in this piece towards the end to really hit it home. Otherwise, there’s a sense of a loss of energy as the piece goes on that doesn’t really vibe well with the blissful mood imo. I also thought the ending you chose came on a little suddenly. Still, top-notch work with the mixing and mastering, sound design, and melodies here, Solize. Keep up the good work! ^_^

Solize responds:

Not complaining! Thanks for the feedback

I’m scared to go against you in the next round because of this song.

Go easy on me

Solize responds:

Haha, I have so much going on right now so who knows if my submission will be even finished

Great textures in the beginning. The SFX Really complement those intro piano chords.
Playful synthy buildup
Upbeat main riff with celestial-like leads
Loving the rolling spinny low-mid synth 3/4 in. Plays up the dynamics nicely.
The reverb that ends the track is really deep and wraps things up nicely

Great work!
Good luck in the contest!

Solize responds:
