@Misael.K - Yep, get ready, as mine tends to be the most longest and most polarizing of the bunch haha....

@Arcana - It's also one i'm rather proud of it. If i don't write it in the description, it's more likely, i don't rank it as highly, or i simply forgot lol.

@thesocialcontract - It's not really reversed, it's more so a long attack. Yes there are samples here. I'd say 80 percent originality to 20 percent sampling.

@Starla - True! A lot of entrants were very chill tonight....

@Misael.K - Why thank you, i do take pride in my work lol.

@JH Sounds - Your entrant is fairly chill to be honest...

@Arcana - You know listening back, i realise how good the sample integrates into the track.

@Misael.K - Machine gun snare haha. That makes my track sound more violent that it really is...

@JH Sounds - I suppose it's good, because then you can be more vocal in your complaints, when it reaches 10 minutes haha....

@Misael.K - You know the length would actually be pretty useful, especially when voting...

@JH Sounds - Lol.

@Misael.K - You know Ambient and Techno is the equivalent of Fish and Chips or Bread and Butter. They all work super well together...

@Arcana - They do. It's as if, they are like close cousins or something...

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!

Now then...

TheVideoGamer - Usually when i start tracks, i come up with an basic melodic idea, then expand on it. However this doesn't always work, so it ends up being a sample to guide it into a great melody. The samples come from a New Age record, which are chopped to form a melody of some kind, while other instruments come in. I'd say this is 80 percent original melodies to 20 percent sampling. Although it works as ambient music, i wanted to gradually build in a beat, first in half-time before it goes into quarter notes. I really like this a lot, because the sample works super well with the rest...

DrumJ8 - Really interesting distorted bass sounds, especially with the 707. I guess your more than just drums lol. Good job!

Souperion - Very nice orchestration. This is very well balanced, and has a lot of beautiful melodies. I'm also a fan of the rather Asian inspired sounds too, this is just a lovely well balanced track. Well done!

DarkShadow - Ok i love the arrangement in this one, feels more straight-forward. Well done!

Nukage - Ok the production is incredible, which you know is to be said, it's nukage after all. However though, it is quite short, barely reaching 3 minutes....I need a longer version of this awesomness....

thesocialcontract - Rather pretty, and chill. Love the minimal aspects of this a lot, well done!

DDRKirby(ISQ) - Oh my god how can this sound soo good.....the distant vocals are like eargasm man, I just love everything about this (The pads, the melody etc...), one of my favourites from you for sure.

Starla - This also follows from DDR's entrant, almost like part 2. Now this one was super hard for me, both of your entrants deserver to be ranked highly, and i mean, really highly. However though, i had to make some tough choices. Like DDR's super chill, and beautifully written. Beyond amazing work!

Arcana - Sorry dude, i feel bad for you. It does sound like there is so much potential, but i'm afraid (As you've said), it needs a lot of ironing out (And mixing). Good job though!

NickC - Daam what a fine range of pads. And that beat too, ooh it's soo good. I love how everything forms a lovely tight groove. Amazing dude!

InvisibleObserver - Hahaha i love this!!

Misael.K - Ooh the harmony is super rich! I love complex chord progressions. I also dig that lead melody, a lot! Just nicely done. Well done!

JH Sounds - Good productions as always. Vocals work super well, especially for this cute number! Well done!

obScene - I thought the bitcrushed beat, would be more of a slow kind of element, not a full on pulse, subverted my expectations lol. Really liking the melody here, i think it suits it well. Not a fan of the rest, and it's not so much it doesn't sound good, it's more so, it feels weirdly off sync. Like a 3/4 beat with a rather odd kind of 4/4 melody. Ending was abrupt as well. I don't know, some great ideas here anyways. Good job!
