Definitely captured Spag's style there! It feels like you get a bit more creative and less 'Spagy' with the second drop, which is nice that its not 100% copying another style.
I know the deez nuts gag is because of April fools but music wise its a bit distracting/doesn't really fit but maybe that's just me. Its nothing ground breakingly new but I guess that's because its not really meant to be. I think trying to imitate someone else's style can be a good exercise to broaden your own style, as long as you don't try to pass it as your own creative work which you haven't done here so that's good.
Good work as a whole, and good luck with your future music adventures!
Thanks. Yeah, this wasn't really intended to be something completely original and groundbreaking, but I feel like I did a good job here. I'll try to get something more unique uploaded tomorrow, stay tuned :)
I absolutely love that little intro! I find it really hard to get the intro right in a song, I believe its a very important part of music. After all its the first thing the listener is going to hear and what their initial judgement is going to be of. That simplistic intro just really fit the rest of the song and is a very good start to let people know generally what the song is like in the first 10 seconds.
I feel like a bit more could be added to the drop, maybe something I like to call an 'overlead' which is basically an extra dominating lead instrument over the top of your other melodies, usually a relatively high pitched instrument to add some more depth, creating a more three dimensional sound. I actually found it hard to find a lot of things I didn't like about this so good work!
All the melodies flow well together and sound very pleasing. I like how you have different layers of tone in the first part but haven't overdone the bass or anything like a lot of new artists do. The drums of the that kick in sound perfect for the genre too. One thing I hope you don't do with the full version is if you have multiple choruses, don't make them exactly the same. Alter the second one a bit, add some variation, it always makes the music sound like a bit more love has gone into it.
Anyway, good work as a whole, Looking forward to the full release!
Thanks for the feedback! Mm... I'm thinkin' the drop is fine the way it is currently. I want it to be fairly simple, uncomplicated, and big enough to leave an impact, but not too big, y'know? And definitely will keep the variation at the forefront of my mind ;) Much appreciated!
I'm liking the 80's vibe with the plucks and spacey drums. The overall feel is very videogamey so you hit that nail on the head. Very fast paced action feeling.
I'm not sure if it was intentional or not but there sounds like there is a lot of clipping throughout the song and I don't really like it. Especially the stabby plucks in the beginning, I feel like they are just a bit too aggressive. Maybe spending some more time mixing could help.
I also like the electric guitar sounding lead that comes in the chorus, I love a bit of pitch bending melodies and that instrument fit well with the theme and feel of the piece. Good work overall and good luck with your future endeavours.
I thoroughly enjoyed that intro! The change tempo is something I don't hear a lot and it sounds very interesting. That whole intro sounded pretty well planned and fit together well with that choppy lead and interesting percussion.
However I didn't really like synth that comes in at about 00:52 its a bit annoying and I didnt think it was necessary. Maybe adding some ambient FX there or altering the percussion a bit would progress it better.
Wow the melodies that kick in after the intro are great! I really like that plucky bass with the bell-sounding melody on top, its a very good calm contrast to the intro, but I really don't like that boom effect there, its totally unnecessary and doesn't add anything, plus it takes away from the calm feeling of the melody that I liked because it contrasted well with the aggressive intro. Apart from that effect the melodies sound really interesting and I can't wait to hear the rest!
Good work as a whole, it totally got me interested for the full song, a worthy 4 stars. Good luck with the full version!
Wow, thanks a lot man, this is the kind of reviews that motivates me to superate myself, i will take your recommendations for the song! Thanks so much for this well prepared review, i really appreciate it, i look foward to the full song myself too ;)
Firstly, I love the melodies and most of the lead instruments, they sound very electronic which goes well with the song. Something I didn't like however is the use of the default FL Studio drums. As soon as I heard them it pulled me straight out of the song and just makes it sound a little generic. Try using different drum samples or creating your own to better fit the song and to stand out.
I feel like there could have been a bit more variation in instruments as well instead of mostly heavy bass and drums. Even though that is the genre, I think it could have benefited from that especially when it transitions from the build up to the drop, the level of bass is pretty much the same and I think you could make the drop hit a bit harder if there was less bass just before it.
You did well with the lead melodies though I enjoyed them and its always good to hear that multiple drops aren't an exact copy of each other. You had a little bit of variation in the second drop which makes it feel like a bit of love went into the song.
Good job on the song as a whole and good luck with your music!
Wow! Really thanks a lot! I like this type of comments. ;)
