after coming up with a seperate little sidechained-organ house progression and electro swingy intro, I decided to try and combine them for some reason and launched into the piece with the idea of 'i don't know where this is going at all but it sure is a house song'. any feedback massively appreciated

Interesting, personally I think it's more jazzy than anything else. It's got a little techno vibe in there that I can only describe as anime-styled. I always appreciate a little bit of unique-sounding notes, and though it stumbles here and there and the heavy reverb motifs fall flat on it face, it works out. It's a challenge to wrap my head around where one verse starts and another ends. Though I'm sure that will kill the flow of the track if it were to get chopped up as it is now for the sake of simplicity, but then again, this type of genre isn't meant to be simple, now is it?

Iosun responds:

what 'heavy reverb motifs' are you referring to? thanks for review!

that horn thing is very groovy. groove goes missing at :16 until :28. the section doesn't need to change entirely, but something is missing. cool break into 1:04. the drop at 1:25 hits light for the buildup i was given, but again, it could be ameliorated without a big rework. the 2:15 moment was well done, but there is a loss of energy that i think could be held on better if you kept those stabs at 2:07 un-lowpass-filtered and loud while the rest tapers down. the drum sample at 2:18 sounds fantastic but i was expecting it to introduce the new groove and keep jamming. in general, it seems a song built with a lot of transitional elements that hint at more impactful drops than i am given.

Iosun responds:

the “lot of transitional elements” was sort of on purpose, my vision creating this was to make something that intentionally felt a bit disconnected and aimless, but I get what you’re saying. this is likely to be edited a bit later on, maybe to sell the impacts more (i’m still learning how to properly be loud). thanks for in depth review!
