atmospherium: I was not sure if this was going to be #1 vote, but the ending actually made me bump it to #1 because of the lyrics and then the song starting to chop up to reflect the lyrics. The synergy and planning of that was too good to pass up voting for.

DDR Kirby for a really fun track. Again great details, especially the DDR sound clips to emphasize the eurobeatness of it.

superion: I like how intimate and how clean it is and how it's all orchestral and yet folksy.

Honorable mentions:

Darkshadow, especially because it's a little different from the usual DarkShadow entry. The beginning was a bit of a shakeup.

Lyra: Your voice gets especially warm around the lower range and it sounds good.

Suzu: Great chops and rhythm. very memorable.

ethansight: I liked the overall sound of it. It sounds really solid and the effects and all really came together.

ashka: I really enjoyed the thick reverb and the overall sound scape in this.

@Souperion - One can dream lol

@Misael.K - Not even close lol

@Wassup Thunder - Oh noes indeed...

@Misael.K - Why not list out all the EDM genres haha....

@Souperion - I hate busy places, really gives me anxiety, so accurate is the word lol.

@Wassup Thunder - Glad were on the same page, i do hate busy areas haha....

@Misael.K - Nah, it says you're late because of the busy roads. You can't move, your trapped, which i feel like that everytime i go to the city lol.

@Wassup Thunder - I have come to take away your future beep, boop....

@Misael.K - Demon Orchesta haha....

@Ethansight - Makes all the difference...

@Arcana - This made me lol to be honest, because you guys did not know what was to come. (I have something up my sleeve heh....) Element of surprise you see....

@Souperion - I get compared to some of the most insane absurd tracks lol.

@Misael.K - Hope you brought your running shoes...

@Everyone - Looks like you guys are wondering if there is a melody. Well do remember it is 7 minutes, so you might spot a melody, if you search for it.

@Misael.K - That's the counter melody, the real melody comes in later haha....

@Atmospherium - Wha? Lol....

@Misael.K - Soon all of your wildest dreams will come true, and it takes is a simple pad....

@Atmospherium - Bye! lol

@Misael.K - Well, i successfully turned myself into a walking troll...nice one.

@Souperion - Get's even better....

@Wassup Thunder - Maybe some UFO ended up taking us from A to B. Taxi service amirite?

@Misael.K - What organ? I don't recall adding in an organ...

@Atmohperium - Omg haha....

@Everyone - You got your wish, of a full blown melody. Now we can rejoice!

@Atmospherium - FM Sax more like lel...

@Misael.K - Kind of true to be honest...

@Souperion - Let's go, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, keep it up, come on! haha....

@Everyone - Man these gif's are accurate to the theme...

@Arcana - Actually 180bpm XD

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words, man so many to reply to you, i have to like keep up! You always give me a lot to say lol...

TheVideoGamer - So as you can tell by my rather amusing response from chat, this is a 7 minute fast techno/trance piece, that starts of super simple, with rich acid textures, risers and swells, and drum switchups. It's very heavy on the acid synths, with breaks in-between for more lighter parts. Things switch up by 3 minutes with a deep lead synth, and some heavy atmospheric pad chords, building up again to a epic melody. This part is good, because it play's with your expectations, it's like an element of surprise. The last minute is the same as the first half, but done in a way to essentially end the piece. I like this one a lot, great developments for it's runtime....

@ThaTaskmasta & JustAVideoGame - Surely you know these were ripped off from Family Guy by now. (Unless of course, you grew up on a different show...)

Lyra_183 - Unfortunately i don't know it. I guess i came from a place of 90's electronica, not classic 70's rock. However though i do have internet, and from research i think it's Kansas - Carry on Wayward Son. Again i researched this, because i've not heard this song, but i will say, you did this perfectly, i think you have a lovely voice! Well done!

A2Z - Pretty and sparkly. This could definitely be developed into a full blown song, it sounds great. Shame it's very short though. Good job!

thesocialcontract - The melodies sound lovely, goes against some pretty sweet beats. Again it feels like this could be developed into a full song, even if it's short. Good job!

cotmm68030 - Jesus, this is loud. I had to turn down my volume in order to hear it properly. However though i do know this genre, so i'm not dismissive of it (If you think i am). If anything the idea is great, and unique. The drums are non-existent, even though your trying to add beats. I think you need to bring the beats up, If this is trying to be Trent Reznor. Oh well, love the idea. Good job!

DarkShadow - Ok what have you done with the real DarkShadow! This sounds very different....and full blown gabber-ish. I actually love this one, well done!

Souperion - Really liking the orchestral palette here. Lovely melodies abound. The sound effects at the start and end, are funny. Overall it's just a nice composition. Well done!

Suzumebachi - OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS INCREDIBLE. This is extremely funky, and just amazing to listen to. The vocal chops just make this a delight on my headphones, i am definitely not afraid of listening to this again. You've put me in a hard spot, since i also want to give Ashka top spot. You know what, you and Ashka are joint first!

Wassup Thunder - The bass guitar seems a little off to me. It's got a weird slap sound, that doesn't seem to come together for me (However though, it get's lost in the track, so this is more of a minor nit-pick). The rest though is awesome though, seems rather uplifting for a busy city, but i like it a lot, great strings all around! Well done!

NickC - I'm tempted to sample that weird but cool synth riff. It sounds really good. The drums are extremely wild for a simple riff. For me, it sounds like this was made in a short period of time, like 20 minutes, which i understand, since i've made some quick entrants, in rapid time. The riff was awesome, the rest was a bit too intense for it however. Good job though!

Arcana - The vocals need to be pushed up, it's very quiet (Almost non-existent). The piano sounds lovely, and works well. I feel it needs polish for me, but i do like what i'm hearing. Good job!

DDRKirby(ISQ) - Haha this is amazing, i love the Eurobeat vibes, and the vocals really made me feel like i was in Dance Dance Revolution. It's both funny, fun and definitely got the right vibe. Amazing synths. Well done!

Misael.K - Great chords here, the deep sub bass is lovely too. Sadly i've made my stance clear on Vocaloid like vocals, not a fan. It's not that's it's wrong to add them, it's just i don't like even mainstream songs with these kinds of vocals. It's more of a general thing, it's not exclusive to your track. But the rest was great however. Good job!

Ashka - You always keep proving to me, why you are just such an incredible producer. Your tracks, just never stop topping the top 3. Your pad chords are always gorgeous. YOU ARE TOO GOOD FOR COMPO MAN.....

Ethansight - The techno vibes are awesome. The melodies are extremely fire, this is amazing work. The melody is just soo good. Well done!

JH Sounds - I'm glad these are your own lyrics this time lol, not sure what happened last time. This is really nicely done. I do like, when you switch up the chord progression, it makes it less repetitive. Well done!

Atmospherium - Your voice just lends it so well to these kinds of genres, it's amazing. The whole thing is just amazing, super hard-hitting and aggressive. Industrial like qualities. The last part of the track is also cool, you really amp up the distortion, and make it very noisy. The whole track is just awesome, well done!

Top 3 - Ashka, Suzumebachi, DDRKirby(ISQ)

Ok so Ashka and Suzumebachi are joint first. So that makes DDRKirby(ISQ) second, and Ethansight, essentially the real third place.

Atmospherium was also awesome too, wish he would make the top 3 as well....

Awesome - Lyra_183, DarkShadow, Souperion, Suzumebachi, Wassup Thunder, DDRKirby(ISQ), Ashka, Ethansight, JH Sounds, Atmospherium.

Needs Work - A2Z, thesocialcontract, cotmm68030, NickC, Arcana, Misael.K

really close between nick and atmospherium.

nickc is absolutely the sound in my head in a crowd. but atmospherium is absolutely the thoughts in my head. so maybe if i play them at the same time i'll just end up a little curled up ball in the corner somewhere. i hate crowds. i kinda hate people too, but hate's a strong word, so maybe not. idk. onward.

ethansights sidechain kick just really spoke to me.
