Inspired by listening to some complextro on the radio, I quickly started to continue working on this as not to lose that inspiration. The result of that is as you currently hear. As far as I'm concerned, this is just about finished, but if you have any tips for me, they are still welcome :) I'm rather proud of this one as it is my what I consider to be my first successful complextro attempt, so leave a review if you don't mind!

In my opinion this just takes far too long before it really starts. Not having any bass at the beginning of a track isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the fact that for so long it seemed like it was only these two keys that went all by themselves it felt highly repetitive for the first two minutes and easily got boring.

Once the bass kicked in and the song really took shape, it immediately sounded a bit better. The nice little buildup wasn't bad at all. It even builds up further. I do think you could've varied up the keys a bit, and even atabout 4.15 or so when it again builds up, it doesn't feel like that much has changed. It sounds good, it just isn't anything new.

All in all the track feels very dragged out, with long segments and little variation overall. I do like the synths and especially the keyboard samples you used, but add some more variation, please.


DjAbbic responds:

I agree with most of what you have said. It IS quite dragged out with little variation and I really could have done better. I also made the patterns rather short, which meant the same thing would be looping for more times than a longer pattern.

Thanks a lot for the constructive review, hopefully I tend to these mistakes in future :)

The starting beat is fine. Just a beat is a pretty nice way to start. What I do have, all the way until 0:53, that I did get a bit bored with the basic beat that almost stands on its own. If you cut half of this, I don't think it would take away anything from the great quality of this song.

When the real melody came in it immediately starts to sound better. It doesn't sound very clear, but the electric and a bit distorted sound it has sounds nice with the rest of the instruments. Again it continues a bit long, but because this has a bit more to it it doesn't sound as irritating as the starting beat for 50 seconds.

I like the slower parts. I normally have that with a continuous loud beat I turn my volume down, but I don't have that with this song. The calmness of some parts cause that. It's also a climax for the somewhat louder parts. Good job on this.

One of the climaxes builds towards 2:45, definitely the real house part of this song. I feel like that's the core part of the song, and it's really good. The variation of instruments makes it exiting, almost like the beat is faster there. And that's something I like in a song. The title doesn't say anything about this part :).

The ending is very creative. At first I thought it would just be the music playing softer and softer, but that isn't the case at all. Awesome work on that. It is something I haven't heard in a song before.

The only flaw about this whole song is that a lot of the parts go on too long. The whole part from 4:15 to 6:37 is basically the same, but with an instrument left out every thirty seconds.

It's a really good song overall though. It almost deserves a perfect score.

I understand what you mean by the intro/outro being very long. I made it that way because I followed the standard club layout (long intro and outro for easy DJ mixing), but now I see that 4:15 to 6:37 is just a tad too much :P. I might change it but then again, I might not.

Thanks a lot for the constructive review! I really appreciate it.
