I love many of your ideas in this song. You created a bright and spacious mood with your use of reverb and and your choice of synths. The main melody is not the catchiest, but it's still very pleasing due to how it harmonizes with the chords. All the essential and common components of a dance song are present. Your transitions are good, and the drum beat compliments the melody well.

The main problem with the song is your execution.

The song sounds crowded and muddy, although it doesn't sound too bad because your instruments cover all of the frequencies. The song could sound much more professional with some tweaks. The mixer volume levels seem to be okay, so I think the problem mainly lies in the mastering. Did you use a mastering preset? If so, I personally think it's better to just mix the song and leave it there.

Your piano roll midis sound very forced and repetitive. I suggest adding some automations, changing note lengths, and varying the note velocities.

The cutoff ending doesn't sound right in this type of song. I know it can be tempting to upload your song as soon as people to see what other people think, but if you find some friends, you can show them your progress so you can get reactions of your work before you publish it.

I enjoyed listening to your song, and I hope you return to this project because it has a lot of potential!

Thanks for the review!

yes, you guessed it right, it's mastering problem of muddyness, without mastered track felt a lot better to me and I trust my mix so I don't think mix was bad in this one...

Again yes, I just used mouse and typing keyboard to make this entire track as I don't have a midi keyboard. I was not at all in a mood to finish this track because of the weird chord progression, I really had hard time coming up to the melody but in the end for some reason I thought nevermind, I'll just upload and so it feels rushed in the end.

I'll definitely think to remake my old tracks with new variations starting from next year maybe (I still have a lot to learn).

Jammin'!

I am not hugely familiar with this genre, specifically, but I have listened to my fair share of electronica. Your mix is fantastic! The bass is blasting out my speaker and the percussion is smacking me in the face, all without losing any clarity in your synths! I listened closely a couple times and here is what I noticed:

My main concern is a composition issue. Your track is dominated by a major scale and this upbeat tone. I was expecting a shift into a minor key at some point. Somewhere towards the end of the softer section at 1:00 would have been a great place for it. If there was a sadder melody playing in the section before the snare build, (maybe around 1:30) it would make that crescendo at 2:10 feel even more powerful! The lack of a tonal shift also presents us with a storytelling dilemma. Your song tells a story of waiting for this miracle in the most upbeat fashion, never losing hope, never faltering. I would relate more to the song if the melodies started to sound sadder, as if they were about to give up. One sad melody would make the happier ones sound even more joyous!

Another thing that sits a little off with me is the piano (possibly a different instrument) that starts at 0:37. The short sustain on the piano clashes with the kick and snare that are still driving that awesome beat. I recommend replacing it with a different instrument for the section at 0:37 and also at 3:24. Make sure the replacement is more intense than the piano, but less so than the synths that drive the song. However, I would leave the piano in at the section at 1:00 because it fits the tone that section.

Regardless of my complaints, I am still jamming out as I type. This is a fantastic piece, keep up the awesome work!

Thanks a lot for the review.

Actually, I suck at writing melodies with specific mood, but I'm practicing to get it right. The minor key-shifting would've been awesome, I didn't think of it :P

Those bells, I don't think they're actually clashing because I EQ'd them properly. but yes, I did over-compress this track while mastering so they're sounding like that(maybe).
