It's a bit simple I guess, but the colours and the music were a real refreshing change from the norm and definitely warrants a thumbs up!

Not as polished as some other Traction demos, yet... what Wade said.

some nice shading, colours, blurs and z-hacking. Worthy of traction. Liked the logo effect at the start very much.

Enjoyable indeed. Positive vibes. Only complaint is that it crashes immediately when I select 1920x1200 as the resolution.

Awesome work by Keith, and very fresh overall show. I had the feeling that visuals were not following music at their best (expecially during the last effect), but still this ranks among my fav releases from Traction.

This is REALLY cool :D Wow.

It's not easy to make an overly colourful style actually look good, but you pretty much nailed it. The colour scheme works great and it's also very Rale :)

Got some classic traction vibes from this, as well as some UF&DD ones. Loved the Saxophone part in the end. Some cool ideas and bubblegum colors. Not the best from Traction though. Still a well deserved thumbs up.

colour love! also respects to keith303 for the music. didn't expect such a beauty in sound from you!
rulezadded on the 2010-09-26 23:39:36 by Bobic Bobic
ok, after rebooting ( and additionally closing down some applications ) it worked flawlessly...so sorry if i made you think about nonexistant bugs maybe ;)
keith is not into that sort of music normally and it feels: dont ever again force keith into any style...ask some other musician instead :P
the music doesnt fit the visuals which are splendid and get the deserved thumbage !
rulezadded on the 2010-09-27 00:13:44 by hArDy. hArDy.
final candy scene would make a ruloring screensaver :)
all in all, cute prod!

I liked it quite a lot! Except for the cubekaleidoscope when the beat starts everything is very stylish and bright.

Excellent music, too.

Yay! Whee!

Loved the soundtrack until the saxophone kicked in, brrrr no, I don`t like that. :(
I`ll get the soundtrack and cut off the saxophone part in order to enjoy it.

Apart from that, the soundtrack is really a refreshing exception to the usual DnB or ASD (though great!) soundtracks, kudos.

The visuals are also very enjoyable, I had fun watching the demo.

the ribbon in the end was really standing out... otherwise perhaps a bit too mellow, but since mellow seems to be the thing about the demo no big complaints...

At first it felt a bit like a interlude, trying to communicate that it was searching for it's own style. But it kept gaining momentum, and at some point it started to make me smile how well the palette was picked and how good it looks. The wireframe together with the specular of two neon lamps caught me, so damn tasty <3

Tune was a Sunday drive, I'd wait in the car to let the tune finish before getting out.

Damn well done <3
