    liked the intro until the squeely synth reared its ugly head (ya did say dont mind harsh lol) but as soon as it goes again its a different beast altogether i actually really like the rest of the song... extremely enjoyable.

    I think you should take that synth delete it but keep chords as i reckon they work and use a nice high end distorted bass not too mental though as your going for liquid here.

    Ye i probarly should replace that synth with something else that's lighter, when you overwork something you sometimes miss out on the most obvious flaws.

    Anyhow thanks for the feedback i will give the distorted bass a try.

    Edit: Reuploaded with the synth replaced by some cellos

    maybe the synths need more reverb? they just sound too fl studio-y and generic, not much movement and variation. maybe some lo passage going on with the synths to create more of a "liquid" feel. atmospheres as well. youre getting there tho

    cheers

    oh sorry bud thats just my lingo for low passing something, ie low pass filtering the synths a bit to remove some of that higher end
