Like the buildup off the intro on this one. Very catchy and well done. I'm finding I'm liking a lot of this synthwave stuff.

I am liking the slow build intro on this track, certainly adds that something 'different' to the track as does the drum filtering. Nice job.

I like this, I love synthwave.
It's so similar to music I loved growing up, and was abused for loving, and now it's like it's somehow "culturally OK" to like it.
I liked it anyway, fvck 'em, you know?

Maybe it's the sort of happy, triplet shuffle, and the airy ambient stuff in the background

Thanks for sharing your music. It's easy to feel underappreciated these days, with it all having to be unpaid work. I don't take it for granted, there's so much beautiful art and music everywhere, it's like a Utopia compared to how I grew up.

Thank you men.
This track is not best from me. I need fresh inspiration.
I like synthwave but i don't want to back to 80s in every aspect. I am looking for my own style in this genre.

Thnak you again !

This was a nice and chill track with a lot of ambience to it. I like how you've added those sweeping pads in the background :tu:

Maybe here you can find some new inspiration, my advice is get away from some cliches, have more hooks/memorable elements.

This is fine example of modern 80s inspired track:

This entire forum is wading through predictions, opinions, barely formed thoughts, drama, and whining. If you don't enjoy that, why are you here? :D ShawnG

Sounds good if not a bit uninspired. Usually, synthwave music is sharper in its production. Still, a good track.
