Could've come from any number of 80s stand-up arcade titles or any number of super-famicon cartridges. Loops perfectly. In fact, I didn't even notice the loop the first time around.
As VG tunes go, this is top-notch. I really dig the triplets and while they are very often used in modern trap, a lot of older video game tunes also tended to use them as well. Overall, it's a modern piece that channels nostalgia in a fairly elegant way.
Oh btw - hi there, Im LJC - nice to meet you and all that. I used to be prolific in the AP way back in the day but I haven't been very active for years. I'm really glad to see new (and talented) faces around these parts of the webernet.
Keep this up!
Thank you very much for your review!
I can't believe I'm getting such a positive review from a talented person like yourself.
Nice to meet you, too, by the way. I'm glad to see you still make some music here and there, you're never too old to produce good tunes. I notice that you don't stick to any particular style, you just do whatever. I like that, it leaves you open to wider possibilities.
Aahh, the little death. The tiny quiet void. That deafening moment of silence. Nice work. By all means, continue.
Thanks a lot LJCoffee! I had no idea why I wrote lyrics like this one when I made it, but it was interesting to make something darkish/electroniccccc
Grimy and raw - this is a nice track. You have talent - I'm digging the grease. That's a good thing.
tyvm :) it's much appreciated.
sort of an 80's-ish psuedo-j-pop throwback vibe happening in here... Jeez, did we go to high-school together or something? John Hughes would approve.
Ahhhhh your description is better than mine hahahaha, I'm glad you like it! I don't know if we did I'm actually 22 how old are you?
aahaha thanks for listening and this comment!!
nice little buildup. I wish the track grabbed me a bit more suddenly though. You've got a good thing going here and I think you can take this somewhere. I like your work overall. There is a ton of energy in this but somehow it feels a bit light? I can't put my finger on it. maybe it's my speakers. Keep at it - this is good stuff.
I don't know what it is either. It felt empty in some weird ways. I tried adding a stronger sub bass, but that didn't do much
Nice work... this is just screaming for vocals... Great track tough - keep it up. I want to hear more of this.
Been trying since 07 on here ^^ thanks for the listen and the review.
Really nice track, this. So many elements coming together so nicely. The hard panning in the beginning threw me off for a moment - I was almost going to give my speaker a kick - but as soon as other sounds came up, it all fell into place. This is just a personal preference but I almost wanted the drums to cut out at about 3:16 for a few bars to let the guitar do it's thing on it's own for a bit. All around though, this is a very emotive and lovely piece and in retrospect, of the 11 minutes I spent listening to it, I don't feel like even a second of it was wasted. Well done.
Thank you LJC for your kind words. Haha, I have new speakers, some m-audio db5's and they really bring out the stereo field so I'm really into heavy panning of my shizz now. I'm doing a remix of this at the moment, as there's some peaking issues apparent. I'll have a listen to your suggestion regarding dropping the drums. I'll let you know when it's done. Again, thanks for the review.
Lovin' this quirky little discobot. I'm so glad to see that you're still dropping bits on this board!
hello there! Long time no speak;) Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I don't get a lot of those these days;)
cheers brah :)
