Sonic FreedomÂ - Tim Mainka has done it again. Two for two, Tim's 2nd submission has also hit the top 16. His first song, ÂDo You Miss MeÂ, riveted top 8, with the industry professional nicknamed, Zip, from MakeAStar saying:
"Yeah man! Even though it's a bit indulgent instrumentally, thanks for being the most refreshing sound this writer has heard on Makeastar.com for quite some time! Rich, flowing, creative and energetic, this track cut's through several musical genre barriers and comes out the other side in it's own bag.
Thanks again for reinventing the vibe...your group should have no problem garnering the attention it deserves for long enough to sustain several offers to record for, publish, license, and release many of your works into the world markets. Sale (Sail) on!...
You should be well on your way to success soon. Keep on crankin' out the hits!"
Industry Pro, nicknamed Buddy, joins in to comment on ÂEcstasy (Together Let's Love)Â:
"I think that you are so ahead of the pack. I always wondered what happened to the kids who were voted, 'Most Likely To Become A Rock Star' in high school, and here you are Â fulfilling your destiny! Rock on Tim!"
