    Yo, guys! So this is my new ongoing project. I need feedback on the sound (quality, mastering, harmonies) and everything that you think that's good to feedback on ^^ I'm going to add vocals on the last part, that's why it's a bit long and dull right now.

    Thanks! :D

    the increase volume intro drums didnt intrest me much but yeah once we get past 30 secs things are good melodies are sweet remind me of some good times in greece. Those drums need far more variation and disto, gain, rev or summin they really are a bit same old hat.

    Nice progression through track though i was hooked to the melodies all the way through but the bass was a bit dull mabye need to warm it up a bit m8. id try to keep the nice elements of the track and not try to make it long instead get those drum prosecced 6 out of 10 simply because it isnt finished (AS YOU STATED) :)

    interesting stuff,

    in terms of the melodies, its quite good (but i think you could put a reverb on all the individual sounds, some stereo imaging on SOME of them eg the lead that starts around 2:25 - bahhh bim bom bahh)

    the drums were different, sounds like you went for some IDM sorta thing. i thought they were a bit haphazard and didnt really flow. im not much of a drum programmer so i cant help you but if IDM-y drums are your thing then check out Squarepusher - his drums still maintain that roll and fluidity despite being all glitchy n what not

    the 'quality' is fine

    mastering isnt great... but like i said earlier, if you reverb all the melodic elements it should sound immediately much more immersive

    good on ya for doing something different

    Nice, mate! Yeah, I'm in the mastering process now. Adding stereo effects to the different elements. Having a really hard time with it, but hopefully I'll reach my goal.
    Yeah, heard alot of Squarepusher and I must say he's a bit of an idol for me. I'm trying to be experimental with it as it's good practice, cause I program the beat from the ground up.
    Taken notice!
    Thanks alot! :)

    Hey,

    I love your pads and simple guitar work! They fit well together. Good variations with your snares. I have a bass headphones and i suggest to add more db to your bassline or something to get it louder. Now it's too quietly compared with other instruments.

    But overally, enjoyed! :)
