Enjoy? impossible not to...
chewy bonking goodness... this music got out the box of rainbows and painted smiles across the sky in my mind. loved the portamentos, and sparkly synthy harmonies. Although the constantly pumping compressor tended to curl my hair, the rest of the mix was a delight.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Hahahah...
Easily the best comment I've ever received on any of my tracks...glad you enjoyed the synth sounds and melodies since it took forever to decide on which ones to use. Thanks for pointing out the compression issue too, since this is really my first dance song I'm not surprised I overdid it a bit.

Thanks fer listening :)

Itsa me!
Very slick production in my ears! A little too heavy drums though? Otherwise impressive.

It feels like it's two or three songs in one :) I particulary like the middle part. Heck, you could make a cool song from just the last 30 sec outro!

Agreed...
Funny you bring that up because I thought the same thing while I was making this. Kept coming up with different beats that I liked and couldn't decide which fit best so I just mashed em all up :) I'd rather have a track with a bunch of different melodies than the same beat running the whole time...also better for listeners with music ADD (which I think is most of us)

Cheers ;)

Yes slick!
Some really nice synthy sparkles here. I like the pumping kick and subby bass actually, I hear no clipping and it's ideal for the genre; I can easily envisage people bopping around in a club to this, a good dance track. I also thing a few more vocal samples would be cool, or even a full blown lyric.

Another great sunshine tune for the Summer we're not having here in England! Very nice.

I've just
had a quick look at the wave form in Audacity and you are right up into the red! Although, as I said, I hear no distortion on my set up here. But you might consider reducing the overall volume a little to stop this. Everything is nice and clear in the mix.

Thanks!
Glad you liked it enough to run it through Audacity for me! I've heard of the program but never used it before so I'll definitely check it out!

Thanks again
-ps I'm from Arizona and I'd gladly give you some of our 115 degree summer/hell if I could :)

Audacity
is a free offering from http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/ I find it's very useful for quickly looking at a waveform [which I did with your tune] and seeing if there's clipping and so on. It can do a lot of other things too, well worth downloading. Cross platform, so it doesn't matter which OS you are using.

Overdone?
No I nt think so. Like a genuine Eurodisco hit, this just brings a smile to the face and the temptation to dance round the breakfast table is overwhelming. Yes the compression is a touch overused on the lead synth from about 1:10 but it's a terrifically upbeat tune and could easily form the basis of a commercial hit. All you need is a hot chick singer! Great work

Haha!
Yes, get a hot chick singer and you've got a Summer Eurodisco anthem. And a hot chick...

Haha...
I'm not picky, she doesn't even need to have a decent voice...
I thought something sounded weird with the synth coming in at 1:10 as well, but I really only noticed it when it first comes in and there's not much else going on in the mix. I actually don't have any compression on that synth but there is a handful of distortion that could be the culprit...?

Thanks for the listen! (and send all hot chicks my way please) :)

Smooth sound and production. Not my style of music but it got the foot tapping! Very cool synth work as well. Nice!

Thanks :)
I'm glad you decided to give it a listen even though it might not be your genre (I just really realized it's not what I listen to at all either...strange). Anything I make that gets a listener's foot tapping makes me feel good though :)

Thanks for taking the time to review!
