Tbh you need heavier snares my dude. That melodic dubstep part is pretty empty without that. The Electro House part is really good tho

WaterLemonMusic responds:

Yeah i've been told this track was feeling too empty before lol
Thanks for your opinion though, I'll definitely consider it

Where is dark mid-tempo? Sounds like complextro/melodic dubstep
The track itself seems empty and dirty, but you still have ahead

WaterLemonMusic responds:

yeah it isn't dark-tempo, sorry idk what genre is the KLOUD / k?d vibe thing
I don't personally think there is any complextro vibe in this, but thanks for your opinions and for following me :)

nice intro. it feels smooth and natural. and I like how you progress the intro into something nice. the buildup. is ok. the drop is good. leads and bass goes well.

in short nice song. 4.5/5 bc of the buildup

I like the relaxed vibe at the beginning and the progression. The pacing is a bit slow, and the sudden change in rhythmic density at :32 caught me off guard a bit. I think the transition into the synth riffs at :40-ish would’ve worked better if it was a bit more gradual, and I thought the clap sample and synths at :46 sounded a tad generic. The production quality is good, and I liked the build-up into the drop. The drop itself was a tad bland, with a lot of bass and pads outlining the chord progression taking up most of the texture. I liked the more mellow section at 2:35, and I appreciated the variations in the refrain at 3:37. You hit the piece home pretty well in the final climactic section, but there’s also not a lot of melodic development or harmonic variety later in the piece. I also thought the ending was a bit underwhelming and inconclusive, as propagated by the fade-out. Overall, I like the mixing, flow, rhythmic content, and atmosphere of the piece, but I think the sound design and arrangement could use more originality and the composition could be more dynamic in places. Keep at it, WaterLemonMusic! :)

I love the piano at the beginning and the transition!
