Ghost in the Machine

I originally wrote this as a slow moving jazz piece but I decided it might work well as a much heavier club-chiptune... Hope everyone likes it!

Been listening to this song since you uploaded.  Not sure why I never commented.  I thought I would get annoyed with the sweeping after a while but I never did.  It fits really well as does all the melodies you throw in there.  Really unique and well good stuff.

Thanks guys! I actually had it at around 170 bpm Jansaw but, it felt a little rushed so I slowed it down... Glad you guys like it though! @NinjetiPanda - I agree its a bit of a strange chord (I know exactly which one your talking about...) but, in the end I left it there because I liked the semi-unexpected feel it gives... It keeps the overall tone still pertaining to the semi-ominous title. I appreciate the constructive criticism though!

I'm digging it. Dig dig dig. Dug dug dug.

I'm not usually a dance thump kind of guy, but this is great.

Inspirational? Makes me want to write things similarly.

The chord ideas around 1:50 are a little weird, even though they resolve, might be worth taking a look at.

man, this is very creative. I felt bits around the air. Awesome! =]

This is amazing! I agree with Jansaw about the intro, it's very ominous and creepy, but then, BOOM! Melodies come in and I am blown away, then the main beats and I just can't help but dance. One of the best chiptunes I've heard in ages. Well done!

Haunting intro, and I like when the wave cracks open.
Pretty cool beats! I like the rhythm instruments behind the lead. This might sound cooler at a higher tempo, but that's just my opinion. Good variation, also. Good work!
