Certainly sounds synthwavey! The kick has a very pleasing low-end thud. Would have liked a little more variation in percussion perhaps, maybe a tom fill here and there. But yeah, not bad :tu:

It kinda feels a little bit static, you're right. I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the input!

Hey it's pretty good. The drums have a very authentic 80s heaviness which I like

Thanks! I always liked those big 80s drums. I can't make a track without 'em.

Sounds fine on my phone. Nice balance between the sounds. I don't know if its Synthwave or not, as I'm not really up on genres ... good job :tu:

Mixing in my horrible room is always a pain so that's nice to hear, thanks!

i like them too, however they are a bit over compressed and brickwall limited making them sound
squashed and distorted, i'd back off on mastering with too much sausage fattner. go for the natural sound!

Didn't know what synthwave was, but imediately thought this sounds like Com Truise. Then looking at wikipedia for synth wave it says: Com Truise, whose retro synthesizer-based music was first released in 2010, has also described his music as synth wave.

Mission acomplished.

I don't even have a sausage fattener. Maybe the master is a little too loud and that's why the drums sound squashed but honestly that's how I like it. The compression on Soundcloud doesn't help either.
