Good day, friends!

Swinger is a simple jolly dance-able track with some cinematic and retro elements that I have made over the weekend. Do give it a listen, when you can. I hope some of you will like it :)

Cheers! :tu:

I enjoyed listening but felt that it could have been a little less hectic at times with regard to the layers? It was all a bit too busy - especially some of the melodies that could have been simplified slightly?
Jazz Clarinet Rocks - well sort of Swings anyway!

@0:58 bell pluck slightly too forward in the mix, needs some reverb or lowering.
Other than that, very enjoyable. Liked it. :tu:

Sounds a bit murky but the 'songwriting' is well done. Cool, alternating synths. Nice work. Greetings NR

Very retro.

It works, but I think the tunes are a bit too complex at times - take some notes out dude and then I'll hum them alongside my next goblin hunt.
