Howdy, everyone! This is my entry for the Final Round of the 2019 NGUAC. :D

It's a Glitch Hop track that has melodic & hard-hitting elements. :)

Ahh, itโ€™s about time I revisit you! Glad to see you continuing to do strong! ๐Ÿ‘ thanks for the great year of me knowing you!

I like the rhythmic content at the beginning and the sense of climax into :18. The piece has a lot of quirky sound design and a fun, blissful vibe. The mixing is really good, if a tad over-compressed at times. The drop at 1:12 is really groovy, and I like the fun, melodic components at the ends of phrases. I love the cute, mini-melodic phrases at 1:57 too. The breakdown melody is excellent - it sounds so dynamic and refreshing. I love the energy and musical diversity you have packed into this song. Even the drops are varied slightly the second time around. Really smooth track overall, MrKoolTrix. If I had to complain about something, it might be that the arrangement is a bit generic or that you overuse the stop-start transitions after a while. Still, fantastic track overall! Congratulations on your hard work in this competition. ^_^

Thanks for the review, TaintedLogic! :)

I love how this starts out. So crisp! And that drop hits like a mother... Nice melody, very chill but also complex. I love these break downs and build ups, very well done. That bass is killer. And good job on the vocals. The mix between crisp mellow vibes and planet crushing bass is perfect. I can't help but bob my head and tap my feet, very engaging. The "second act" doesn't disappoint with that bass talking directly to the animal part of my cerebral cortex. And then you calm it down before it makes my head explode. I can't think of a single thing that needs work. Well done! I'll see you on Youtube.
