Definitely different from anything we've heard from you.

And it is assuredly of our liking.

Excellent use of the synths and midi instruments.
The dynamics throughout are very effective.

Yet another fine composition and mix!

Grabbed my attention from the very first note.

You, sir ... pound for pound, you are - in my view - one of the very best composers on here. Some of us have technique, some of us have great musicality - you and a few others have both to spare.

The track itself: sharp, crisp, succint and simply oozing professionalism. Absolutely adore it.

You are also incredibly consistent. I've listened to some of your other tracks ... superb job every time.

Hats off.

I latched onto it right from the first E Piano chord! Liked those “stabs” from the brass section. Very nice!!

Mike,
Cool arrangement. Fun synths, 70s/80s feel. Rolls very well, but I do feel some blend in mixing (Acoustic+Synth) would improve it. Common "master bus" FX? Very different from what I heard by you. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

You should step out of your box more often.

Everything about this is top shelf! Super job on those synth leads and brass stabs.

I really liked this one.

I like it! Has a real catchy groove and lots of interesting dynamics. It's spacious too and the tonal balance is sweet. Very enjoyable.
