Wow Xiejra, your atmospheres are really something else. Your stuff has a really pro vibe. You can make some really diverse stuff, too. My favorite track you have has got to be Ice Cubed just because of the epic automation and composition. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Keep it up!

You make some really solid and also unique stuff, which is great to see. Thought Green Sun was great, and also your first tournament entry was very good as well (as you could probably tell from such a high score). Can’t really give a bunch of specific feedback because I make a different style of music, but you make some really solid stuff. Keep up the good work, my man :+1:

@Xiejra -

You are an amazingly unique artist. You bring amazing bass always - no matter what genre you are doing, and you make the coolest sounds. You also make great drum kits that fit each song perfectly.

Acid Dreams and Green Sun are my two favorite tracks of yours.
Keep up the good work!

And I also think its pretty safe to say that you may have won @Matik’s kicoh remix challenge.

You’re at @official_ivo’s level, and I can’t give higher praise than that, given the genre you make.

Powerful introduction in your magic kicoh remix. Like the pizzicato and cellos. Buildup was perfect. And my god was the drop sick as. Didn’t know we had another dubstep auxian on board.

I would of thought towards the end of the first drop when u did the dnb move, would of been cool if it changed to dnb for maybe 16 bars? But the bridge was awesome.

Green sun is awesome. Love the orechstarl intro once again. Nice random change to future bass, which the wubs were perfectamundo :ok_hand:t2:. And nice melody that comes in aswell. Where’s the bassss??? :fearful: I think frequencies in the lower range needed to be added, otherwise it was too plain.

Glowy had some nice arps and toms but once again, yes there was bad shere but maybe stacking it with maybe a heavier mid bass would of been good too?
The change at 1:30 is awesome. That dubstep is just awesome, even tho it is 4 in the floor it was quite awesome. Just wish that bass could be something better. Overall awesome track with aweosme growls.

Overall feedback, mixing frequencies and mastering could have an area of improvement, more in the bass side. I think your pads and arps are perfect, I just think u need some better bass options and mixing.

Keep it up! @Xiejra
