Namorog x Galyax x Syrge - Discover Namorog x Galyax x Syrge - Discover

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Whew.
What a journey, much like Ferð!

You three did amazing on this track. I really enjoyed it.
The ambiance is great (great use of the bitcrushed plucks!), the sound design is solid, it's nice and wide, the percussion is very well mixed (especially the fills), and the track feels solid overall. Kinda reminded me of Koraii's song "Gems" at times too.

Not much else to say, really.

Good luck with the LAER project, guys! Keep it up.

Karaplex - Heartburn (Melodic Dubstep) Karaplex - Heartburn (Melodic Dubstep)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

So, this is where you first started implementing that characteristic growl bass of yours.
Interesting.

Before going through your entire discography, this was my third favourite Karaplex-era track. But after doing that, I can see why you think it's bad XD
Now, don't get me wrong. The growl bass is weird, but just the right kind of weird. In fact, it adds character to this track, being the first to use it and all. It's part of your signature sound after all.

Your sound design game is on point on here too. The synth chords and the percussion helped with the groove. I even found myself bopping my head to the drop at first :D
And I wouldn't call this melodic dubstep though. The synths and the overall groove are reminiscent of a future bass track instead.

And finally, the overall track seems a bit quiteter compared to your other tracks. Maybe if you turned up the master gain slightly, it would do the job. But that would create unnecessary distortion, so I see why you haven't done that.

Listening through your entire discography has been an enjoyable experience. Now I see how much you've grown as a producer.

Cheers :D

Skywalker Skywalker

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I like how there's a difference between the NG version and the EP version of Skywalker. On the latter, there's a sudden dubstep switch before the outro.
Amazing :D
And in said outro, the arpeggio seems slightly different. Don't know if it's just me, but I definitely hear a difference.
(Sorry for this not being a proper review.)
Cheerio.

Oooh, you're the first one to tell me they noticed! :D Glad you liked the little easter egg. It's a nice little change for those who downloaded on bandcamp. Cheers!
