Week 2 (90MC002)

Jose - The soundscape was totally on point (well, the kick was a bit too intense, maybe), but otherwise, the entire track is soooo laid-back, a perfect fit for the theme, I think :)
Misael.K - Great vibes, I dig that sound! It's quite different from the style that I expected for this theme, and I mean that in a very positive way :)
Starla - Delicious sounds, amazing vocals (I can hear that harmonized third, even if you didn't manage to render that in time). Great use of the vocal range, I find, and nice lyrics to go along with :)
ashka - I really like the composition, but from my interpretation, it didn't match the theme all too well, with trance chords and acid bass, but I still like the track (definitely top3 in my book, based on the music you made, irrespective of the theme)
GLL - Live piano recordings... I'm really amazed by those that manage to just improvise on the fly with such a versatile instrument.... bass, chords, leads... you got them all. Impressive work on that - plus the vocals on top, with some cheeky, 4th-wall-breaking lyrics! Way to go :)
Vaiaphraim - just for reference.... first of all, set your timer right. It's NOT the same time as 2HTS, it's one hour E A R L I E R. That aside, I think you should develop individual sections more. Stop exploring the entire universe, when there's just one - sleepy - village to write the song about. I like the MIDI sounds, but a bit of reverb on some of the elements would go a long way. Besides, the chords don't really follow a rhythm other than the bars, so that could be improved. Plus, the drums should play along with the melodies (and chords) a bit more.
Great work, you all! See you next week :)

@Misael.K - I'm pretty sure it's an augmented chord, i don't usually think about names, i just go by my ears.
@Everyone - You guys are very kind, thanks for the lovely words!
TheVideoGamer - This track evolved from a simple guitar phrase i created. It's not a real guitar, because obviously i don't own such tools, however i turned the guitar into a long section of ambient synths and things. On top of that is strings, followed by a synth flute melody and a lovely beat. I say lovely, because i'm extremely proud of this one. Overall i think i've done a good job.
Misael.K - Omg this is soooo pretty. Duude, i don't care how short or repetitive it is, this is amazing. Your voice is lovely too....amazing work!
Starla - I think the voice is a little too loud within the backing track. However i love everything about both the backing track and the vocals. Just needs to be blended a bit more. Good job though!
Jose - Kick is a bit too loud within the mix, but the rest is also amazing. Really digging the melodies here. Good job!
Ashka - Dude your far too talented!! Like seriously, is there an entrant you've put out, that does suck? Every entrant so far has been top notch....
Vaiaphraim - Sick melodies as usual. You really know how to nail that retro vibe. Love this a lot, well done!
GLL - Your piano playing is out of this world. It's sooo pretty. I also love your voice too it blends so well. This is just....amazing work!
Top 3 - Ashka, Misael.K, GLL
Awesome - Misael.K, Ashka, Vaiaphraim, GLL
Needs Work - Starla, Jose.
