This time I tried to make a nice minimal hip-hoppy song like decay, but also with kawaii bass elements. Basically I tried to explore a whole new genre whilst still keeping some elements of genres I've already explored. Also, this is kind of different from traditional kawaii bass because instead of using huge aggressive saws and bass (which is awesome but still) I decided to lean closer to hip-hop, to help with the super calm and zen vibe I had going. And I'm really proud of it! I really hope you enjoy! It took a lot of work and I'm really happy with the result. Feel free to ask me what I used if you would like!

Thank you for clarifying. I think you nailed the vibe you were going for. The only thing that prevents it from getting 5 stars is the long silent space at the end and the thumbnail art you chose to be the piece. I can't say for sure if that artwork fits, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Original 3 1/2 Star Review:

"It's interesting to me that you called this "Carefree" because I feel like this is the kind of music that would appear in Animal Crossing if Tom Nook was really into Hip-Hop. It's got a very "zen" feel to it. I'm curious what you were thinking?

I'm also wondering what your thought process was when you made this song. If you provide the information in your description, I might be able to provide more helpful feedback and it could affect my rating. I would base the piece off how well I thought your intent came through rather than how much I liked it.

Technically speaking, my only gripe is there's a solid 10 or so seconds at the end where it's just silence. I suggest trimming it a bit, maybe by about 5-8 seconds.

Yeah, I think you got it! I tried to make the song calm and zen but also with a positive vibe and mood. Most kawaii bass has huge saws and kinda focuses more on mashing together all the elements to make it super aggressive. What I did here was I sprinkled in a little bit of hip-hop and made it sweeter and calmer in general. My thought process while making the song was just making it sound similar to previous songs like decay, but to also add on some elements from a whole new genre which I wanted to explore. Thanks for the feedback. You can PM me if you have any more questions! I will also add something to the description about what the song is intended to be
