Gogo Wyne by LATASHA

Brett Napoli

Pounding baseline, upbeat tempo, solid lyrics and overall enjoyable! The bass hits and keeps it rocking, the snare and the buildup are flawless to the lyrics. Very well done, really enjoyed the flow and the chorus. The light chime twinkling in there is such a great addition as well. Excellent work!

Like I Do by Eamonn Conor

Brett Napoli

Enjoyed the vocals and clearly the track was well produced with a properly balanced introduction and buildup. Reminds me of 90's Backstreet Boys and certainly sounded radio ready. Enjoyed the sound layering, chorus and is a great length. I'm not sure I understand the album cover, but the overall flow and production of the track sounded sharp and professional. Nicely done, enjoyed it.

Show And Prove by SeddyMac

Brett Napoli

Really loved the beat and the bassline. Well produced, great rhythm and the vocals are interesting and fun. Enjoyed the lyrics, hook and rhyme scheme. Overall an enjoyable track with nice balance and flow, ideal length and production quality. The only critique I have is of the cover art. Does not make sense right off the bat, takes a second of looking at it. Enjoyed the track and would definitely like to hear more, which is the goal of any track. Nice work.

Youphoria by illexotic

Brett Napoli

Solid, energetic bassline and a nice buildup. I like how the track keeps it simple, groovy and keeps a building momentum throughout. Solid engineering, nice drops and just enough vocal to tie it all together.  The last minute takes the first half and breaks it up nicely into little overlaying slices with some extra razzle dazzle. Nicely done, enjoyed it!

Little Lonely by Acarya

Brett Napoli

Great vocals, uplifting and beautifully blended sounds. Especially loved the drums! A nice balance and a great progression from beginning to end. The vocal balance and range is impressive and the whole song is neatly organized and well produced. Great job.

Brett Napoli

Fun and upbeat with a pop/radio vibe. Solid vocals and nice production keep the song flowing. Parts the video were really beautiful but it was somewhat unclear how all the shots related to the track itself. Enjoyed the horns and the keys and the lyrics were fun and enjoyable with a smooth sound and nice cadence. Overall enjoyed. Video could use a little bit of improvement, but overall a nice job.

The Wallace House by The Badgers

Brett Napoli

WOW! Absolutely loved it. Hands down the best submitted song I've ever heard here on Fluence. Tremendous job, perfect for this time of year. Loved the buildup, the accent sounds, the balance, the progressive increase in intensity, the low breaks and absolutely EVERYTHING about this track.

Fantastic job!!! We will be reposting this on our SoundCloud right away! Excellent job, truly loved the track. GREAT WORK!

GOT BASS? by Khoda Leon

Brett Napoli

Really kicked into gear about 1 minute into the track. I felt the very beginning got it off to a slow start but it came into its own at 40 seconds and beyond. Production is tight and I appreciated the transitions, the variations in intensity and the buildup. The only thing is that it feels to missing something unique or bold where you take a risk. Much of the sound seems I've heard it before. With a bit more unique and specialized effort into something that stands out, I feel like the song is good but it blends in.

Got Away With My Heart by Ebae Bongos

Brett Napoli

Enjoyed the track, the lyrics, the production and balance of all the sound.  Enjoyed the high quality production, the balanced and smooth instruments that complimented each other nicely. The vocals were good but seemed almost louder than the music. Enjoyed overall.

Jason Coons submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Enjoyed the upbeat nature of the track, the audio and the visuals. Overall nicely produced and I enjoyed the production of the video and the simplicity of it. Solid vibes, especially enjoyed the vocals and the lyrics. Excellent work. Sounds like a radio ready track.

I KNOW by Om Zho

Brett Napoli

Really enjoyed this. Had an Odesza-like vibe and great layering of sound. Beautifully produced and I especially loved the female vocal. We find that tracks with female vocals are much more radio friendly and this one nails it.  Great work overall from the buildups and breakdowns, the vocals, the sound samples and more. Beautifully done and balanced. We reposted on our SoundCloud!

Anticio Duke submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Well produced video with well formed lyrics and storyline. Enjoyed the flow, the color and shots in the video. This was well produced both on the track side and the video. I really really liked this. I'm going to share it on our Facebook page. Very nice work and a surprisingly refreshing visual and audio experience. Well done.

Dakini by EnPierre

Brett Napoli

Cool and downtempo vibe with a nice rolling bassline. I enjoy the subtleties of the track and the progression from bass into the other sounds. Reminds me alot of Solomun. I expect the track would play well in a live setting.  My only critique is that I'd like to see a little more action in the second half of the track. The 3min to 4min mark is the slowest, but otherwise I liked the rest of the track. If you pulled minute 4 up to minute 3, I feel like the track would have better overall balance, because I really liked 4:30 thru the end of the track.

Brett Napoli

Interesting, captivating, beautiful vocals and great layering. Song seems well produced, fun, exciting, uplifting, dance-able, vibrant and I really really enjoyed it! Great work. It has that perfect length that makes me want to listen over and over again, and the complexity makes it so I can enjoy something new with each listen.

Loved it. Well produced, balanced sound and a full on journey. I enjoyed all the layering and well organized buildups and transitions. I've went ahead and Liked and Reposted on our Soundcloud profile. Spacey vibes with chill elements, this would absolutely crush on a dance floor. Appreciate the other subtle elements that compliment the bassline nicely. Great work!

Careless by The Brothers Moore

Upbeat and funky track with great vocals. Really enjoyed the flow of the track, the blend of instruments and fun solo guitar riffs. The vocals flow nicely with the track, great singer and overall this is a fantastic track. Really enjoyed it.

Walker by Dave McGoff

Brett Napoli

Reminds me of the Miami club scene, latenight at Club Space on the Terrace. The vibes are great, has a catchy sound and I like the cuts to different sounds. I felt there could be just a bit more variety and cutaways from the main beat, but overall I enjoyed it. Though it sounds redundant to say the main sound was repetitive, that would be the only improvement I'd suggest. Thanks for the submission.

Futureproof by Kaptur

Brett Napoli

Reminds me of some iconic rock bands in the 90's and early 2000's. Nice build up from the start and some cool instrumentation throughout the song. Enjoyed the last 60 seconds of the song the most. Though the song is somewhat long, it keeps you interested with the vocals and the changes in progression of the instruments. Nicely done, enjoyed it.

Riccardo submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Enjoy the vocal track, the buildup and the production. Nice flow through the track and some fun breakdowns. Fun and upbeat party sound, with a bit of a cross between hip-hop, trap and even a bit of an island sound. The subtle sounds like the rolling snare patterns and the breakdowns of the bass are addicting and sharp. Nicely done!

Unconscious (Original Mix) by Tha Boogie Bandit X Jeff Molner

Brett Napoli

"Unconscious" is definitely a track that will go off at both clubs and festivals. Simple and effective vocal loop mixed with heavy drops and powerful synths make this track shine. In summary, it encompasses everything that a good trap release should have. The lead sound reminds us of RL Grime's "Scylla" and other older trap tracks throwing it back to 2012-2013, but with improved production. Really good job on this one!

Ryan Claus submitted media.

Until It's Gone by Little Glass Men

Brett Napoli

This is a really cool downtempo chill-out track. The minimal drums and soft piano really add to the atmosphere. It reminds me of Koan Sound's work without the drum and bass/glitchy influences. Really solid production on it, looking forward to hearing more!

Sweet'n Low by Liv (featuring Telefan)

Brett Napoli

A beautiful and sweet ballad. Where the track shines are the vocals and guitar giving it an old-school folk vibe to it. Love the collaboration and the Tennyson quote in the description. Great job to the two of you!

Surrender Me [OUT NOW] by Thomas La Salle feat. London Ellis

Brett Napoli

Hey Thomas, we love the track and posted it as a promoted post on our site! Link: http://www.thatdrop.com/thomas-la-salle-feat-london-ellis-surrender/

This track was made for the summer and has a great vibe to it. The perfect song to blast in the car with friends on the way to the beach or before a night out. A bumping house track combined with killer vocals makes this song a force to be reckoned with. The production is top quality as well as the mastering. Keep up the great work and we're looking forward to hearing more from you!

Captain (Audio Only) by Team!Badguy

Cool vocals and guitar and voice effects. Sounds professionally produced and has an enjoyable flow. Catchy chorus makes it sound radio-ready and suited for live performance.

Solid vocals and overall great flow throughout the track.  Has an Odesza-like feel with solid build-ups, drops and synths. Really enjoyed the experience and shifting sound throughout.

Book Smart by Charles

Brett Napoli

Really really enjoyed this. One of the best submissions I've seen here so far on Fluence, great work. I just reposted it to our official SoundCloud account. Great buildup and soundbytes, digging the bassline and future vibes. Vocals are a nice addition and the overall flow of the track is well balanced. Good amount of bass and digging the change of sound for the ending. Very chill, deep. Dynamic track, nicely done.

Thomas La Salle submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Liked this one immediately. One of the best tracks I've been sent here on Fluence. Love the vocal notes, the sound variety and really really love the vocals. From the buildup to the steel drum sound this crosses genres from electronic to tropical to pop to almost a trap type vibe. Really really dig this, liked and reposted to our SoundCloud. Great job!

Zero Gravity by Martin Tillman

Brett Napoli

Cool but slightly ominous. Sounds very similar to a movie score. Beautifully made music, but not sure it is something I'd listen to regularly. Very professional grade production and really enjoy the piano. Well composed and arranged, nicely done. I really like the first minute build-up and the natural progression throughout the track.

INSPIRE by 26CARAT

Brett Napoli

Though I felt some parts were a bit repetitive, the track is smooth and ambient. I like the injections of vocal samples and the overall feel of the track, but the repetition of certain sounds was frustrating. Would have preferred more variety. Though the piano and future vibes were nice, same with the overall speed and tempo

Spellt (60 Second Promo) by Hollywood Principle

Brett Napoli

Solid vocal and buildup, love the complexity and overlays. Lyrics also solid. But preview too short! Why not the full track, can't get the whole vibe.

Matthew Shell submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Cool sax, why is it so short? Kind of jumps in in the middle of the track. Enjoyed it though, lots of levels, epic sounding. Sounds like the soundtrack to a live show or broadway performance. Enjoyed it.

Luke submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Hey Luke, thanks for the submission. The pianic melody layers beautifully behind the vocal distortions. Great progression leading into the freestyle but could be a little bit smoother. Synth work is nice complement. Digging the use of horns but feel they could be amplified to bring a powerful element to this track. Also digging the pulsing bass that comes in around the 1:45 mark but, again, feel like this could be amplified a little bit more. Definitely understand wanting to have the vocals stand out, but a little more focus on the mastering could really propel this to the next level. Overall great track! Thanks for sharing.

Lana Del Rey ft. Logic by High By The Beach (Calibrate Remix)

Brett Napoli

Odesza-esque, airy sound with whimsical vocals followed by an unexpected rap verse that made the song for me. Perfect mixture of energy and downtempo vibes make this a dynamic track. Starting quiet and slow and evolving into lyrics and horns.  Didn't feel busy or overwhelming, great balance that would appeal to a wide range of listeners and musical tastes.

Neptune by zircon

Brett Napoli

Really enjoying the tribal feel on "Neptune". The hand percussion works well with the growling bass lines and chopped vocal samples. It has a really dynamic sound, moving quickly from the intro to the drop to the break and back into the thick of things. Reposted via our SoundCloud channel!

Undefined by Bo Haan

Loving the old-school throwback feel to this one. The horns add an awesome touch with their silky sound, and the guitar work (especially during the middle break) is great. Recording sounds perfect, everything has its own space carved out, sonically. Great track!

INFERNO by CALIBRATE

Brett Napoli

Absolutely loving this track. From the deep and spaced-out intro/end to the massively fat bass on the drop, "Inferno" is a straight bass banger, plain and simple. The production is excellent and everything sounds perfectly in place. It's dark, it's crisp, and it drops with a reckless abandon. Reposted "Inferno" via our SoundCloud channel and looking forward to hearing more from Calibrate!

Sterling Angel-Survive by Sterling Angel

Brett Napoli

"Survive" has a low-key driving sound that puts it somewhere between a lucid dream and a nightmare with it's ominous undertones. The production is incredible and well-rounded, it sounds as well-produced as it can be. The video is incredible, albeit almost overly sexual. It becomes a bit repetitive. Together, the song and video work well, throwing a trance-like vibe over listeners mental state. Definitely enjoyed the track!

DJ Who submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Upon first listen, "Meteorite" is a big room banger that definitely sounds like it belongs in clubs and on main stages. The production is precise and full, and every piece fits together to give the track a full professional sound. The dynamic throughout the entire song is flowing and keeps listeners entertained with plenty of peaks and valleys. In the drops, the lead synths sound natural over the pulsing backbeat, and everything sound right at home within the song. Overall, I'm really impressed and the song sounds awesome.

grade school games by Focal Point

Brett Napoli

Hey Focal Point,

I'm not going to lie, we're really getting into "Grade School Games" and it captures a sound that's not all too common in today's electronic music. Initially, it feels as if the song will break into a swing house cadence, so when it breaks into the chopped break around it was a happy surprise. The bass on the track hits perfectly, and it's clean feel throws a solid backdrop for the lighthearted samples to work their way over. It's a refreshing track that combines new and old in an unlikely juxtaposition that resonates with us.

I Choose Love by Mego

Brett Napoli

"I Choose Love" is a catchy tune that definitely has it's own sound when it comes to electronic music. The fragile vocals complemented the melody well, and the atmospheric/reverb sound that they capture fits the tone of the track. Overall track's drums feel a bit stiff and they have an artificial sound to them, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just depends on what you're going for. The transitions are a little harsh and abrupt at times, but they fit well in some places (right around the 1:00 mark is a great one). Overall solid track!

Jelly (Calibrate Remix) by Andre Nickatina Ft. Problem

Brett Napoli

This remix is an interesting juxtaposition of hip hop and electronica. The beat sits back in the pocket to let the vocals shine until the dance breaks come in around 2:15 and 4:00. The groove in the instrumental parts hits the hardest, and sounds full. It really grabs your attention and might be the strongest parts of the track IMO. Great swooping synths, in the pocket beat, and the reverbed poppy snare hits contrast the smooth character of the track well.

Bo Haan submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Really digging the slick retro funk vibe on this one. The synths throw it back to give it a silky classic edge, the bass line is fat, and the production is clean. The vocal tracks really stand out with their polished and clean sound!

Trevor Cooke submitted media.

Fifty Shade by T. Cooke

Brett Napoli

It sounds like there is a lot going on in the entire song, maybe too much to settle into a solid groove. The heavily processed percussion stands out and sits well in the back of the mix. The production shows a lot of promise with a solid sound and dynamic song progression. Looking forward to hearing more!

Julianne K submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Hey guys. Big fan of the track. Don't hear much "reggae EDM" type stuff outside of Reggaeton which strictly abides by that 4 on the floor beat pattern. Utilizing the vocal stylings of reggae on top of dubstep is a fresh sound that we can definitely dig.

I think there's a lot of potential with what you guys are doing, especially if you maintain that style across different 'genres' of electronic dance music.

La La La (Calibrate Remix) by Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith

Brett Napoli

Big fan of the melodic lead in. Snare kicks add a nice introduction to the vocal samples. Like how you speed up the bass line and revert back to something slower. The consistently well-timed change of pace kept me guessing which direction the track was going to go. Definitely was not expecting the distorted vocals that came around the 2:20 mark, giving it more of a 'trappy' vibe.

This track lulls, reels you in, and smacks you in the face all at the same time.

Melodic and heavy all in one. Love the diversity of the track.

02 A.E.O.M by MohamedX

Brett Napoli

Simple beat reminds me of 90's hip hop and rap, simplicity. Less is more. Nice progression on the the lyrics, well crafted and smooth delivery. Some slow, some fast makes an exciting ride for the track. Also enjoyed the Chorus, 2pac style. The track title I didn't really understand, but otherwise nicely done.

C B submitted media.

Brett Napoli

Really enjoyed this. Great vocals, well produced, nice progression and chill tropical sound without being overwhelming or fitting what appears to be somewhat of a trend in tropical house.

Song has been 'liked' and 'reposted' to our SoundCloud audience. Great job!

Sub Pac submitted media.

Legends x SubPac by SubPac

Brett Napoli

The Subpac promo video definitely creates an aura of excellence around the product, especially with the world class testimonials supporting it from internationally well known artists all across the board. The intro was great ("I'm tearing up") for bringing viewers in. The only suggestions that we would make would be to describe the product more for viewers. What is it exactly? Is it for producers and musicians only or the general public? Cost?

As an awareness promo piece this video is top notch, but you could lose viewers who won't search further to find out if the Subpac is for them. Overall, we're psyched on it and will do further research, but will your typical viewer be so inclined?
