Let's go on a time traveling adventure! :D

Some notes:

* Man I worked really hard on all the different pattern variations and stuff. My goal was to get something that felt like it was repetitive enough to feel like a jam, but varied enough to stay interesting and catch new details every time you listened to it.

* I mean, 'subtle details' has always kind of been my forte but I feel like this song has an extra amount of fun little ideas in it. Watch how the melodies change and evolve over time, and then reference other melodies and stuff.

* I feel like I took a lot more attention to sound design than I usually do. Like I felt like the sound design choices for it all felt really natural, rather than trying to 300 IQ it like I usually do by crossreferencing 600 tracks of similar styles (and having it still not work out lol)

* All the reverb is @ethansight inspired haha. I love how his songs have so much reverb and feel so rich with texture. Something I wish I could pull off better.

* My favorite little thing is the 6 note melody at 3:49 lol. I don't know why, it just sounds cool.

* I basically worked on this song nonstop on the last day before the pixel day deadline. I swear I nearly died. By the end I was thinking "I dont just hate listening to this song. I hate listening to ALL MUSIC." Fortunately that has mostly worn off. Mostly...

Yo! This is very good! One of the best tracks i heard in 2021, it sure deserves a 5-star review from me! Keep up the good work!

I like this one. I love electronic music. Good job.

You sir are the king of funky OHC. Been jammin' to this tune in my car for food runs. This is the best stuff to chill to. Nice work man uWu

Thanks! :D Haha I listen to it while driving sometimes as well. It pairs really well.

Absolutely nothing like kicking back and just flowing with your music. The recurring synth melodies around ~1:03 and ~4:19 were absolutely on point. And I have to agree, reverb at its best adds so much depth to a track; I love the feeling like I'm flying through a vast space. I think it worked really for you in this piece, not just for the flashier parts but also in the midsection where it added a nice chill vibe and feel to the instrumentation. Awesome.

johnfn responds:

Thanks for such a nice review! Always appreciated.

This is so funky cool! Everything is well mixed, and there's interesting transitions going on too! Really good. Great job with this composition. :D

johnfn responds:

Thank you SilverFoxJams for the kind review! You happened to review it right as I was doing my daily NG check (ok sometimes it's more than daily :P).
