Another Life by MAYA

Oren Gilad

Hey Maya! I love this, and I'll tell you why. The melody is pleasant and catchy. You're voice is gorgeous and the hook in the intro/interlude is a killer. Excellent material to work with and I think it's really "almost there". I can definitely hear something I'd try differently which is the groove. Not sure if that industrial-sounding beat works best. I would try something else, perhaps a groove that develops with the song. In any case, curious to hear where this goes and would love to take part in this or any future productions. Cheers!

Pattern by Chords of Truth

Oren Gilad

Hey man! Thanks for submitting that. Cool tune, catchy melody. Loved that guitar part and the general ambiance. My ears were craving perhaps a softer-played drum track and some more defined panning in the mix. Other than that, kudos on your work online. I've looked at the website and your social media, you're doing a good job. Have you tried getting into some Spotify playlists? You can also start your own and "plant" some of your stuff in there. That can work quite well in some genres. Also, keep uploading teasers of your songs to places where new listeners can be exposed to them. Instagram's great for that. I see you've some of that; try to raise the frequency of those posts. All in all, you're on the right track! Keep fighting the good fight.

Wicked atmosphere & beat. Got me moving my head in seconds. Love the combination of the smooth backing track with the indie-sounding vocals. Would love to hear more of them in the mix at certain parts, but generally very cool sounding. I can definitely hear this spinning on the non-com radio stations. Have you made physical copies? 
Try sending one to DJs Evie & Riz of KEXP.

Hey Joona, thanks for sending that! Reminded me of great 90s electronica acts. The beat & the atmosphere are definitely happening, and the video looks cinematic. The post work adds a lot. The lyrics kinda threw me off, but all in all, very catchy.
