"A person rows through a foggy river, mist gathering around them. They start to pass time by recollecting thoughts until they finally emerge. After a long hibernation from sunshine, they absorb the bright scene before docking their boat, the memories still faintly stuck on their mind."

This was the original description for the track (except my mind somehow did "she" instead of "them" for some reason, which is fixed here) when it was submitted to Chips 2020 Week 3. The ironic thing is, though, somehow the site got broken and allowed only two hours of judging following the submission phase, that and nobody judged anything within that time frame. What that means is that basically I felt the competition didn't count (we're all still winners though!) so I spent time tidying up the track post-competition. Some improvements made include small mastering tweaks and a change in the lead melody for the second half of the climax.

Part of the Chips theme for the competition was basing your work off of one of two images. The image that this track was based off of is the one used as the art, but it can also be found here: https://wmmr.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2018/11/Foggy-River-shutterstock.jpg

I love this! I has space-like vibe to it.

good uses of plugins but
tbh, the effects you did for the drop are kinda unnecessary, you could just put them in another dance music

SplatterDash responds:

I mean yeah, that is kinda true that I could have put them in a different dance track, and I see where you come from in that opinion. The only reason that I put them here is because of contrast and it also is an area I haven't visited that kind of style in a bit (mostly I felt my recent stuff was in the calmer area and less like the drop/climax in here).
