A jarring keyboard rolls us into a capable bit of hoppy beats. A nice melody,with a cool (if perhaps insufficiently prominent) bass line.

The keys go all sorts of cool places within their range, but the tone of the keyboards doesn’t quite sell me. I like the way they rove,and I imagine what fun they might have been if they had been a bit more chill. The rhythm elements play well throughout this one, giving it a briskness that works.

This is a good song. What separates it from being a great song for me is really nothing more than the choice of “voice” on your keys synth. You’ve got this really cool trip-electro-fun melody, and I’d like to hear something just a tad bit prettier and more chill propelling it. Still, this mix held my attention throughout, and I like the jazzy melodic line.

Thanks for the review Gurdonark. Funny but I actually just replaced my file with one with a slightly different bass, slightly less present. I don’t think I will update the song in the coming times, I’m working on other ones, but I’ll keep ur comments in mind, thx.

I definitely like the crackling break stuff about halfway through and the beat is nice (if a little repetitive)
