Cool jam I didn't find it as dance as I did electronic . A unique sound though I like it. Good job.

This is pretty cool progression in your musical style! I'm liking the sound of it! I must ask, regarding the guitar parts... Do you use a DI of any sort? Mostly curious. I like how you blended the guitar in the mix, and it compliments the synthetic parts well. I like the late section where the harmonies and solo get more complex, has a cool feel to it. Very fun to hear! Fave!

thanks spiv! Regarding my setup - my guitar runs into a FX box\pedal (a BOSS ME25) and that output goes into my Roland Duo-Capture EX. That Roland is a wicked little unit, and has served me well over the few years i've had it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good work ... but sometimes I confused , sounds are similar together but melody is changing all the time with little range . But overally good ...

The guitar has certainly given the track some extra life often missing in electronic music, kudos.. I want more guitars in my heavy beats type of music but the results of my recordings just don't match up to the heavy sounds I use.. Too thin.. Working on it.. A better amp perhaps.

As for the track, I haven't much to say besides the drums, (the ending bars of the guitar were pretty fantastic) I would like to hear a lot more variation, for example at around 3:05 you could add a few kicks to that stuttering to give the track more groove. Take that with some salt from a guy who loves his drums :) Meta.

Well Done msn! Glad hear that you're using real instrumentation as well! Let me tell you, I had my head rocking back to fucking back through the entirety of this track. Great job, and I'm sure the quality will increase from here! Much love!

I probably shouldn't admit to this, but the intro had me doing robotic arm movements while I'm sat here on my chair, alone. Thank god no one saw me.

Loved the tune, it put a smile on my face.

Thanks for sharing :)

I love the fact that you mix a real guitar with those electronics, to some extend I am trying to make hiphop-ish tracks using real instruments too. So keep at it, and the more real instruments the better!
