Nothing like a little drone and very mildly glitchy trip beginning to get a song going. This is very dark, and provides an interesting setting for the vocals. The fx on the vocals are fun, but I wonder if they should dial back a bit.

I like the way that you’ve got a sense of tension and anxiety that goes well with the words.

This has a kind of NIN sans guitars feel that I like. I like the way you dial it all back a bit after the word “go blank”.

This is an interesting mix, and something a bit new-ish for you.
Perhaps a crashing computer is a useful bit of inspiration about desperation :).

I dont have a point of reference about the teru style which is good i think.

I like this a lot. I go straight to 8mm and those dark basements with their trades .

The vox sound fine , almost arabic in their treatment and placement.

There are a lot of possibilites in how to cut this track and what could be added or taken away but the grinding loop feel works well for me.

Waaooo..! The voice of this girl takes all her dimension with this remix, sumptuous atmosphere. You always have a very simple way to develop your remix, and it’s always excellent…Great..!!

This makes me think of what would would happen if Tori Amos was locked in a broom closet in an abandoned building with a bottle of bathtub gin, and told she’d be let out after she finished the bottle and wrote a song…
Wow teru, don’t let me get on your bad side!
(I mean all this in a good way)

Very theatrically goth? Kind of like a ambient skinny puppy? It really showcases the freaky feel of the vocals…which are awesome. And I especially like the wind down!

Very cool.

Teru gives massive treatment…the light distortion is quite effective.

Keeping it straight and letting the vocals steal the show. I can totally dig that.
Kickarse vibe all the way through, and that stark and abrupt ending totally sells it.
