Oooooh a-bada-bada baaah! 

Well, here it is. A literal representation of my artistic "goofiness" portrayed in a super duper playful song.

Y'know, I sometimes tend to have this recurrent habit of inducing surprise factor with my works, but in this case the whole song is the surprise factor LOL it's like bruh this has nothing similar to my previous NGADM submissions but I'm like SOD IT *slaps on the table* HAVE A SWING SONG NOW.

Anyways goofiness aside, this was a very interesting experiment and an EXTREMELY fun project to work on. Used lots of elements you'd see in jazz/swing/twist genres (including an ukulele!)

I feel the need to specify that those weird female shouting noises you hear at some points are from a kontakt library about bulgarian ethnic choir. They are not files downloaded from who-knows-where.com. In case I use downloaded samples from the internet I will specify and attach a link if necessary.

As I always say, I really hope you enjoy this song. Luv u all <3

P.D.: here's the stupid cover art i made for it lmao

Official NGADM Review for Round 3

Yeah this is definitely creative freedom lol. What I like about this is how "out-of-the-box" it is, taking all different directions throughout the course while still keeping around some melodic ideas. It's this really fun concoction that I honestly decided to play again shamelessly. Most of the sound designs can actually be almost indistinguishable from their realistic counterparts, and those vocals... boy do they help this piece so much.
It's hard to really come up with some good criticism with what to improve. The only thing I can think of is that the bass can come up a bit in terms of volume, since it is a tad bit low in my opinion. But honestly, that's about all I can think of in terms of what to improve.
Overall... I think you know already, I love this lol. It's absolutely creative, and it fits the name so well. Wonderful job on this!

Reminds me of Saturday morning cartoons, Plok, Rogue's level music style from Sonic Adventure 2, and Yume Nikki shorts that gobou creates using music like this.

That jazz is way too goddamn smooth. I want to say I feel something could be improved on this but I feel messing with it at all will ruin the creative flow you managed to create on this round's tune.

The art cover is also hilarious.

Fantastic work all around and best of luck to you making it to the final round. :D
