Amazing work, solid slowdown and build back into the beat.

Not sure why but the whole time I heard this, kind of wondered what it would have sounded like with the bass groove being in a triplet style for some parts, kind of off topic so sorry about that.

Other than that, super groovy and loved the drums and use of Gross Beat for the later parts of the track, fantastic usage. :D

Thank you, Mika!
The bass playing triplets does sound interesting. I suppose the closest thing to a triplet feel in this one is the last part of the main melody ascending in triplets.
I'll keep that idea in mind for future tracks, though!

Hi Valent. Just wanted to stop by for a listen. The timbre of some of the synths reminds me a bit of garlagan's early works. I like your taste in what synths you use. I admit I don't have much exposure in this genre so my references are limited. Regardless, the groove and melody is a pleasure to listen to. The arrangement choices work well, and you provide enough variety changes in the instrumentation. If I may encourage you to think more in providing that variation musically as well. For every time you change the instrumentation, provide a countermelody that is recognizably different from the one we are first introduced to, or add a different section altogether by treating the instruments as individuals that contribute to the conversation. That's my one critique in that the section changes merely reside in the instruments as if a parrot was in the room speaking the same words as its counterparts.

UmValent responds:

Thank you so much for the in-depth review!
I totally get your point regarding the section changes. Funny thing is, while drafting, I had a completely different guitar section in the middle. Since I felt it provided too much contrast to the rest of the track, I scrapped it entirely. Maybe it would have served to differentiate the sections more and alleviate the issue, just like you described.
