    this one is my baby i've been writing off and on over the last couple weeks. I think the mix turned out pretty good, maybe the sliding bell sounds are a little too loud but idk.

    This one's cool. Don't rly care for the genre rly but there's a ton of rly interesting sound textures that mesh well together. I do feel tho that there coule be a little more variation on the A minor chord/C, A, E melody/bass (or w/e it is) that pretty consistently plays throughout. Just feels it loses its effectiveness even when it's transferred to different instrumentation. A good idea would be to create a sort of answer to that phrase (another 3 notes or w/e) as if the C A E was a question and then it gets resolved with an answer to form a sort of complete sentence/conversation. I guess for instance imagine the CAE part that plays throughout is saying smthn like "I love you", then the song would pretty much just be saying "I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you" throughout (although obviously with a lot of interesting textures and variations that you currently have to give it different context), but it would still be more powerful/effective I think to sort of expand on that, making it say something a bit more full like "I love you.... But I don't your cooking" (idk). And then I guess once you have a more full motif going you could expand on it or mix it around a lil' more. But that's just my suggestion. Idk much bout future bass or w/e.

    Didn't notice anything being too loud or whatever. Mixing sounded pretty good to me!

    I think thats called "call and response" right? I see what you mean w/ the chords/bass, basically just repeats those 3. I was hoping the way that i added strings and more percussions in the 2nd half and switched up the arrangements would spice it up enough that it wouldnt matter lol, thanks for the feedback

    transitional part at 19-32 seconds would be more effective if it wasn't repeated (single shot only). Just something that stood out to me which I felt could maybe be even better, as I like that lil' bit. Alternatively, you could make the repeated part sustain the note instead of doing it twice (it's currently like 1 1, 2 2, 1 1, 2 2, but could be 1 1, 2 2, 1 1, 2~ (Or maybe the best option would just be 1 1, 2~ )). Whatever the vocal sfx thing is is cool. I like it. Sounds rly good. Interesting too.

    I do sorta think this track kinda has a bit of an issue where the momentum gets messed up at most of the "drop" areas, I think cus it's transitioning into a sort of breakdown (just drums and dubstep, sometimes just dubstep), but those aspects of the song (to me) are probably the weakest link (just not ass interesting as the chords/melody/textures that fill in the rest of the song). Dubstep sections could greatly prosper from some more textures/chords/melody/sfx/something idk (a little barren as is, and the dubstep itself isn't rly hard enough/interesting enough to fill that space on its own).

    The chords/rise coming in at 2:37/4:18 is sick af.

    Overall I think it's rly good. Uhhh sorry I get super critical, i'm just basically saying what I would do to it if it were in my hands. I think maybe you could slim it down some to 3-4 minutes pretty easily, and in doing so maybe sort of work on prioritizing overall effectiveness (parts that hit hard and sound dope) over repetition...

    Yeah I definitely understand what you mean with the momentum thing. For me, the bass doesn't hit that hard at all and feels quieter compared to the rest of the song. It doesn't really have that "drop the bass" kinda feeling, especially with the way the buildup goes. Glad you liked the vocals though, I spent a lot of time modulating the delay/reverb effect to get some weird transients and stuff that I thought sounded cool. Don't worry about being too critical, some people I just show my music too and they are like "yeah thats fire" but it's like cmon i'm tryna get some feedback. i know its not super professional sounding and I listen to it on repeat basically while writing and i become super numb/desensitized and sometimes can't even tell if something sounds good anymore or not lol. So it helps to get an outside perspective that's as critical about it as i am. I usually don't go back to change or fix stuff but I try to incorporate peoples feedback into my future tracks at least

    also I made another soundcloud for my more polished tracks (plus my old one was getting full). I've been using art breeder and photoshop to make the art for the songs. Changed my name too
