@Skrullz - Go ahead, i'll be sure to bring a security blanket incase it gets too much lol
TheVideoGamer - This week's box, didn't give me a melody. So i tried atmosphere. If you can't make music out of it, then just make noise instead. I mean you pretty much hear this, if you did get your ass devoured by a real hurricane so, and I did have a bit of fun with this one, as i do with all my tracks, but especially because i didn't have to worry about musicality, just well...noise and i suppose accuracy.
Skandix - In terms of sound design and melodic elements, it was pretty well executed, but however it wasn't as cohesive as it could be. None of the elements blended smoothly, so it became more abrupt. It also feels like a beat is missing, which honestly is more off-putting as i listen. Still, the melodic elements are fire, so good job!
DarkShadow - You really do have a unique sense of chords don't ya? Bass was really strong in this one. Good job!
Nukage - Man 6 minutes? Impressive. From start to finish you had me going, the sound design is amazing. You are just so good at dubstep. Awesome work!
cotmm68030 - Lovely atmosphere dude. Really like how distant it sounds. Vocals could blend a bit better, to not have it stick out too much, but i like the overall result so good job!
A2Z - Really nicely balanced. Awesome grooves, and nice beautiful ambience. The reverse clap was a nice touch. Lovely work!
DDRKirby(ISQ) - I'm really into the unique ideas. Each part is different, but still balanced out with some familiarity, it's great. The white noise in itself isn't really doing it for me. Using real wind, could have worked better, or maybe filter it out so it's not a sharp. Besides that though, the rest is beautiful, so great job!
Ashka - FOR GOD'S SAKE WHY ARE YOU SO GOOD. No inspiration my ass, i love this. Awesome pads, and some lovely glitchy beats. A epic IDM calm adventure. Beyond beautiful dude!
Misael.K - Daam I didn't know Zovi was into gabber! That's sick, i love me some hardcore beats! Listening to yours, where is the gabber? It sounds like a downtempo ambient thing. (I only say this, because i find it hard to locate any samples used from the original) Rather nice too. Now sadly, i'm going to say this, which i know you've been dreading. It's loud. However though, praise be, in that there is dynamic changes, which i'm always down for, and not one consistent loudness. This one seems more intentional so i don't know, however i do like the ideas, so good job!
Skrullz - I love the textures here, the pads are awesome. However the beats, not so much, they are way too into the mix. if you lower the drums to let the pad shine, this would be awesome. Still though, good job!
JH Sounds - I like this, it's simple and effective. Honestly it needs expanding, it's very basic, and a little on the repetitive side, but your voice is nice, so that's a plus. Good job!
NickC - This is great. Lovely selection of bass tones, and a rather nice sparse, but full beat. Beats could be more integrated into the track, than a background element, but it didn't take away the experience. Well done!
Arcana - Good job here, nice idea. Mix is very uneven, and at parts loud, but the choice of sounds were good, so good job!
Starla - Really nice euro styled dance track. If i have to be real, i found the vocals a little uneven (In terms of mix wise), however though, the backing track was really nice, and the overall mix was rather dynamic. Good job!
LunacyEcho - This is rather lovely. Nice stutter synths, feels almost like a electronic funk album from the early 80's. The drums are pretty awesome. They are work really nicely. Well done!
mcmiagblackmanisgod - Speaking da truth. Here's something everyone can relate from Malcom X: "Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it" Well done!
GreyHooves - Rather nice ethic styled composition, i'm into it. Huge lack of bass for me however, could really elevate it, and maybe some chords of some kind. Good job!
