As we end the year, i thought it's time for a brand new start.

A brand new start with a different heart. =D

Interesting synth pop feel. What effects did you use on the vocals? melody sticks.

You are very good at writing these catchy little melody motifs that underpin your songs. I love the corny synth  UFO style take-off thing, then as usual you have lots of variety going on in your various keyboard accompaniments.

Compared to some of your other numbers, however, I thought you slightly overdid it on the repetition this time round. But still lots to enjoy in your animated execution.  ;)
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

hi @GreatBigThings , music is nice in my opinion, i like that

but the fx's on the vocals are a bit too much for me, i think (on first listen that is  ;D ;D ;D)

well, it gives a very Kraftwerk feel....but it is all very stacatto and minimalistic, but i should be the last too comment on that...

mhh....i am still processing this... ??? :o ::) ::) 8) 8) :P

i give you extra karma for that, and the track, anyway  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

It's a bit of doubling, reverb, eq etc. with a few layers to get the effect right.

I think i might have over done it :D It was a bit of a learning experience trying out new synths, different style. I wanted something that's not so out of place at a techno club.
