My contest entry!

I didn't want to use something I've previously made and instead wanted to try something totally different, so after getting some inspiration from Bob Ross I went with a Dnb Orchestral mix.

I had a lot of different projects in progress to pick from but decided to start from scratch; hope you like it!

I like the sassy strings at the beginning and the emotional quality to the harmonies by around :15. The texture is well-balanced, and the choir at :35 is a valuable addition to the texture as well. I like the beat at :56 and the cute synths and sub-bass. The drum samples sound pretty unique, too. Great sound design here overall. I would’ve appreciated some more melodic content at the climactic points of this piece, though, and I thought the transition at 1:43 was a little sudden. Overall, the structure works really well here, although I would’ve liked to see a little more harmonic variety towards the end to really drive this piece home. Still, the mixing and mastering, sound design, atmosphere, and drum beats are really cool here! Keep it up, CANDYdisturber! ^_^

Very thorough review; thank you for the critiques!

The bells work fantastically well with the beat and electronic elements.
Enjoying the atmosphere here!

Wholesome Matrix is what I get from this, ha.

Good luck with the contest!

I really like this one! Hopefully it does well in the contest.

Love when it kicks in at the one minute mark, this whole song has a great flow to it.
