"I especially like the Mindless Vapor song. You are very talented. Keep studying, practice, and listen to the genres of music you would like to make a lot (that is what I do...it helps so much!) Well done. "

"Oh yes I maximised (distorted it) the Soundcloud version to protect it. I think as this song isn't meant to be powerful in the sense I think you mean as it is a slighlty different style compared to Alien Invasion and Hideout. This song I intended to…"

Nicole replied to Nicole's discussion Remake Of The Crystal Maze Theme Song
"Thanks for the feedback. Oh yes I was going for the retro vibe. I tried to keep it as close to the original as possible. The Crystal Maze was a British game show back in the 90s. I always used to love the theme so I remade it :D"
