Too short! I would like to hear more of this! lovely synth-wavey vibes

I really dig the arps starting around 0:40! I think you can expand on these filtered synths more without adding additional layers. This would also help on adding more lenght to the track. Altough the synths starting on 1:15 are very nice as well.

The track could to with an additional shaker (or any other perc) swinging in the background to drive the track further up, like a 16th shaker/High hat. A proper break (with a few ethereal choirs/strings) to build up tension over a longer period of time would also be nice. this would heighten the impact when all the elements are coming back (aka "the drop").

Overall, i really dig it! Great work!

PS: I would really love to remix your track and try give you my take on your material.

You can export your tracks to audio as stems (+midi) and send them to me via sth like a dropbox/google drive share

We can discuss this in a PM so we don't clutter the thread!

Thought it was musically done very well.


My thoughts are that it sounded a bit old in terms of sound design. If thats what your going for then cool. Retro all over this one.

I think the snare is a little too hard for a chill dreamy track like this. Neways, job well done overall

Love this but love Dragonfly even more! You nail that lead style.
