My Feedback

Music - 7
Instruments - 8.5
Performance - 8.5
Mix - 9

Overall - 8.25

Comments: Intro is too long. A minute and a half in before the track goes somewhere. But then it doesn't get very far and we're back to the same 4 note motif. Mix is fine. Performance is decent enough but nobody here knows how to compose music. Or maybe music composition is secondary for these EDM genres. I don't know. Maybe I'm just old and should leave the planet already. Anyway, this song said everything it had to say after 2 minutes. And that's only because it took a minute and a half to get there. The sad thing is, the majority of the people here have a good command of their synths and can mix pretty damn good. Add some actual music to the mix and you've got something.

Needs more SynthWave. :wink:

Pretty good. Almost at the level of 'retro' that I find myself gravitating to these days (I guess I am a slave to trends).

Lovely vibe at the 1:00 mark, and the follow-up at 1:33 is just as nice. Would have preferred a more 'wet' retro-sounding snare and clap though.

It sounds complete to me. Granted, minimalist compositions are not everyone's cup-o-tea.

Thanks for sharing. It was a good, early Sunday morning listen.

As an electronic minimalist piece, it works nicely but I didn't get any feeling of spring from it. Mix is nice, tight and well rounded.

I like the analog/retro sound, but there's simply not enough happening to keep me interested.
