The intro sounds quite silent and gives more of an ambient feel. The bass also helps give that feel. Sounds like when the bass started there was a low filtering for it before the bass got really smoothed out.
At 0:45 I noticed the bass kicked in before the drums and main rhythm. Sounds a bit off to me. I would recommend moving the bass start to when the drums start so it won't sound messy when beginning.
The constant bass kicks combined with the bass rhythm reminded me of Gabberstag by Renard too. So I assume that style of music is called Gabber overall then right? Sounds like something to get people pumped up to.
The main synth rhythm was good. However, I feel a general change in rhythm from time to time would have been nice. Such as increasing or decreasing for a bit in notes.
Around 3:09 I begin to hear the synth picking up and having a nice powerful sound to it. Almost as if restarting the whole song or party and getting more people to join in on the fun. Then the secondary synth comes back and sounds quite smooth and nice.
The rest of the song sounded very smooth.
Overall, very interesting.

1) I don't remember having a bass with a low pass filter in this track...?
2) That's...not the bass. It's the same saw that's used for the melody. But yeah, should probably move it back a bit.
3) Constant bass kicks + little to no chord progression (essentially relying on the melodies) is Gabber (I think). And of course, I can't live without overused 4-chord progs adfjysiufg
No comment for points 5 - 6. :/
Thanks for the review!
I really like the synth at the start right off the bat. It has some reverb which makes me think of floating off in a pool of water as my sadness begins to fade into the water. Remembering the sad and happy times I have had with friends in the past.
The piano sounds beautiful and I really like the echo that is heard after each note. The claps and drum rhythm seem to make the song feel a bit more upbeat as in reminding the listener there are still happy memories and times to enjoy.
The song itself, has a wonderful surround sound to it. The only think I may recommend is possibly an ambient bass in the background if it is not already there. As to give the song much more atmosphere.
Overall, the song is beautiful. Would be a great song to listen to during those times one feels really sad and needs a song to make them feel better.
thanks for a great comment :))
The bass at the start sounds rather mellow.
Then the song slowly begins to work into a full rhythm. The drums sound really nice and I like that hard kick you have going on too. Then the drums begin to layer on themselves and create a full beat. The industrial sound to the drums is very pleasant.
The synth sounds smooth. I like how it seems to immerse you into feeling rather calm yet sad at the same time about your past.
The vocals however, for some reason or another sound rather grainy or maybe they are just low quality since you hear a bit of quality loss on the vocals.
Overall, aside from vocals, sounds nice.
the vocals i made em sound like an old tape.
I find this song to be quite enjoyable. I feel it could fit in exploring a warehouse or space station.
The synth has a great atmosphere to it. The backing synth sounds a bit like space vocals and reminds me of Mother 3. The drums also sound quite fantastic and have a smooth rhythm.
The bass is nice, would be nice to hear a bit of funk from time to time, however it sounds fine as it is.
Overall, nothing wrong with this song as far as I can tell aside from bass needing a bit more funk from time to time.
Sweet! Thanks for the review, I have an 8-bit sounding version of this song, it would fit perfectly with the space station (background/ theme/ type) game! Bass is one topic I noticed I'm always critiqued on (I'll start paying more attention to the bass. One reason may be the fact that I'm not able to work with speakers at the moment and have to judge the quality of the bass, based on the different headphones I have.... IDK, Thanks very much for the review!!
The song has a nice flow to it.
The intro has a chaotic feel to it. Then it changes to sounding like something I would listen to on the Sega Genesis while I play a Sonic the Hedgehog. Makes me think of the pyramid levels.
The synth is nice and solid. The drums are also nice but could use work such as use of bass kicks that make the song have a better kick to it for the whole song.
The dub sounds seem rather out of place for this song as well. Very light use of them for parts like the mid way and ending would have done. As it is, the dub sounds just seem to clash with the song more than anything.
Overall, I would work on incorporating the wubs better and making a much better sounding drum rhythm.
Thanks a lot :)
I agree in the sense that the first half is much more "Dubstep" than the 2nd half, and doesn't really feel like the same song throughout, (I tried using the same note patterns and chords through the whole thing but I either varied too much in that, or I changed the tone and style too much [most likely both haha])
Thanks for the review :)
The intro to the song is a nice build.
Then the song begins to get an industrial hip hop sound. The tune makes me think of someone roaming in their car blaring this loud with the bass turned up all the way.
The bass for the song in my opinion is a bit too loud for me to enjoy it.
The drums are good. The rhythm does not sound to me as if it clashes with anything. The ambient synth sounds like it is going from right to left and back which makes for a great atmosphere.
The slight use of reverse noise around 2:05 is nice. The minimoog I hear later into the song is pretty nice. I like how it gives the song a bit of electronic gaming joy to it.
Overall, very nicely done song.
Actually the minimoog v comes in at around 1:06, the synth at 2:05 is the ymVST, but I'm glad you liked it.
The classical music in the background from Ren and Stimpy makes this quite hilarious.
The voices are both very nice. The one guy is whining the whole time while the works on pulling it out. Then the splinter is pulled out and given back to them. The sound effects make this even better.
Overall, not much to say, this is hilarious.
Haha!! Finally someone figured out the music! <3 Thanks a lot for the compliments!
The rising in the intro was not bad. the rising reminded me of Earthbound. However, I feel the deep bass comes in a bit too so, could have waited for a pause then added it in there so it has a cleaner entrance to the song.
The drums are simple in rhythm and you get the image of a few people clapping and someone playing a drum rhythm that goes from simple to slightly off balance which makes a nice drum rhythm.
The sudden change in rhythm at 1:35 was nice and then having the deep bass enter again at that time sounds much cleaner for its entrance to the rhythm.
However, for the deep bass I could recommend that from time to time it changes for a moment, to a possible going down pace, so that the synth is going up and the bass is going down to make things interesting.
The secondary synth coming into the song was nice. Then the wubs were cleans and very lightly used making the sound smooth enough to enjoy.
Overall, I would work on the bass line, aside from that, great work.
Somehow not responding to your review for 3 days makes me feel guilty. :/ ...And I never know how to respond to helpful reviews, so...
Thanks for the review! :3
I actually enjoy this song a lot. It seems to have that great atmosphere that belongs in a horror movie. You venture through a ravaged city looking for other survivors hoping not to come across any zombies as you are almost out of ammo.
The dark long winding synth rhythm is very nice. Then a second synth plays that doesn't make you feel comfortable roaming the city. Then a buildup and the rhythm slowly dies back down.
The piano was calming in this song as in giving a little bit of hope as the person explores the city. Then the light drums followed by echo keep the tune suspenseful.
Overall, very dark and good song.
Thanks for the review :D
I should probably work on finishing this, but I've been distracted by obstacles such as ADD and shiny things.
This was entirely explosive and incredibly enjoyable. Do not think this could be made any better if you tried on this one. Excellent collab!
thank you <3
