I really love all the strong sounds in your piece. Makes me feel excited and motivated. Very enjoyable!:) Like the ending too.

I like the sort of hip hop, rap touch you placed on this song. The loud noises and controversy add to this style that you were going in that rap can be very explosive at times. I would have continued using lyrics at the end though to keep this flowing more.

The intro was interesting. I like how it slowed past the middle. From loud and crazy to a little more smoothe and relaxed.

The ending was fitting.

Determined vocals, strong beats, and even explosions; an awesome blend. Conflict and it's aftermath seem to be theme of the piece. Lacking better words to describe it, I shall only say excellent work.

I think there's a lot of amazing sampling going on...great transition and effects. The second half is something I'd prefer to listen to because I really like the more instrumental produced hip hop type of stuff like DJ Shadow and Blockhead, but the vocal parts in the beginning work well as some sort of intro...maybe not necessarily to the second half though. Maybe if both parts were more intertwined rather than sectioned it would hold together as one piece better. But regardless, great craftsmanship.

I keep thinking like a Hardcore rated R version of mulan. It had an asian feeling mixed with a war theme, and thats about all i could think of is mulan. Hahaa its kick ass though, really clean and a good intro.

I really liked this song because it fringes my idea into thinking of "martial arts" versus "Street Wars" or Thug life. In some ways its both about nobility but still its about violence. Its a great statement about violence and the art of that. Love the STOP in the end. Great flow to it. This didn't really give me a headache! GOOD JOB!

This mix reminds me some battle fields. Someone fight with a monster, and finally someone else comes there to stop the battle. Your song has great transitions. Good job.

Alicia said...

Totally awesome mix! I loved how the beat was really consistent and it wasnt anything recognizable. it reminded me of some upbeat song that comes on for the credits of some action movie. Very strong and well done!

Made me think of a dance floor with spectators all around. The explosion noises and (i believe) the wooden flutes gives in a karate fight feeling in the beginning. Also there was something that sounded of jets flying, add that with the explosions i was thinking of 'hip/cool transformers' (its the best way to put it lol) This is another piece that makes you feel excited and anxious for an outcome. As the piece gets calmer and less intensive, i was feeling anticipation for more to come out of the works, but it remained clam till the end or at least is wasn't as intense as the beginning pieces. The mix and use was of sounds and sayings awesome. there were strong emotional amplifiers everywhere in the piece

The instrumentals remind me of called cartoon “Samurai Jack”, its sound like war a little war. It’s well blended and has a lot of things that going on to drawing a picture in mind of the seen.

Good start and finish the middle made me think of sci fi. So that was fun, you did really well at mixing these. Enjoyed it.

When I am listening to this I feel like the chaos of living on the streets (that might sound kind of funny). The song just is very chaotic and has loud explosions that come unexpectedly. I feel that there is good craftsmanship with the volume.
