There's a great mix genres on this song. The folk elements work really nicely with the electronic components. The only other artist who I've heard do something similar to this is Mid-Air Thief.

Kiyanosh and Marti have absolutely killed it with the SKID2 project! I've been listening to their 'ABSTRACT TORTURE' EP on repeat for the last couple of days. The momentum and energy on each track is just brilliant! The lyrics are fun and extremely clever with so many cool references to popular culture. NARDWUAR is my personal favourite.

Feeling some great pop vibes on this tune. The production here is excellent and super spacious. I love that punchy kick and the funky bassline. The lead vocal works really nicely as well. Great job! :)

WOOOOOW! I absolutely love that breakdown in the middle half or the song. Reminds me a lot of this drum n bass artist called Little Snake. Listening to the track with headphones is super cool and truly highlights your insanely good use panning and space. Also, this is such a unique sounding song! It feels like a bit PC Music with some elements sounding like they'd come from a SOPHIE track....

The lead vocal sample mixed in with that bassline works really well. There is a nice sense of space to this song, especially with the delay that is used throughout the track.

Super interesting and cool track. There are so many cool elements in this song which makes it extremely enjoyable to listen to. The track kind of transforms throughout with each new section and reaches this really awesome climax with that slightly distorted wobbly bass. Really liking what I'm hearing out of the Loveboy and His Imaginary Friends project. Keen to hear more.

Really getting around The Avalanches vibes I'm feeling from this track. Your use of samples is extremely effective. I especially love that saxophone sound and the delay and panning that you've applied to it. The ambience in the song is really nice and gives the whole track this almost intergalactic kind of atmosphere. Overall, I'm a big fan and I'm super keen to hear more.

Parts of this song remind me of Seekae's track 'Test & Recognise'. I like how everything slowly builds throughout and reaches this nice climax in the second half of the song. The quality of the mixing here is really good as well. The vocals sound really nice and spacious. Great work! :)

Very smooth track. I love the vocal sample that plays throughout (it's the same sample Basenji uses in his song Chroma). The chorus sounds great and works quite nicely in contrast with the other sections of the song. Really solid mixing as well.

The two drops in this song are really cool. I love all the miscellaneous fx that feature in them. In particular, the second drop has this great vocal sample that is panned rapidly from left to right to create this really nice stereo sound. I feel the non-chorus sections of the song maybe could have had some more elements added to make them a bit richer and interesting. Nonetheless, I really lik...

Brilliant flow on this track. Everything works well together. Big fan of the transition that occurs just after the one minute mark. It integrates the rap component really well with the rest of the song.

Such a cool tune! The kick-sidechaining sounds very nice and gives the track heaps of power and punch. The variation in the drops is great and keeps the song engaging from start to finish. Awesome work!

'Blind' is another great release from Brenden James. It is consistently enjoyable to listen to. I especially love the piano solo around the two minute mark. The tempo change is really cool as well.

Feeling some Tycho vibes on this song. Great use of reverb and delay on the lead guitar. I love those warm pads as well. Overall, the song is a really nice listen. Each element works very well together.

Wow this is super super smooth! Everything builds extremely well and is integrated into the mix brilliantly. I love the synth that enters in about two minutes in! The effects on it are awesome and really give it a life of its own. The high end to this song is excellent.

Love those thick synth and wobbly bass sounds! The song flows very nicely, with some nice use of space and delay (especially on some of the percussive elements). :)

Love some new future pop tunes! Lead vocal sounds super angelic. The song reminds me of Grimes. The opening works very well. The end seems to potentially have too much going on (which might have affected the end mix). Still, great work!

James Blake mixed in with some Joji vocals. Nothing is ever in your face in the song, whilst I think that works really well. Great job.
