Fantastic! Would love to see more.
Lead is annoying, kick is meant for hardcore not hardstyle, melody synth is just not... working. Though I'm not fond of Headhunterz or Scantraxx I do agree it's a decent track, though you didn't have to butcher it. Don't remix professional tracks if you don't know what you're doing, no offense though but if you spent more time on I imagine you could've done better.
Needs to be faster and harder for my taste.
It's like hardstyle, except.... less irritating.
Good so far
The kick has too many overtones, imho. Try lowpassing or EQ'ing.
Also, the melody near the end isn't agressive enough. Copying the melody at an octave could remedy this. In fact, the kick's overpowering the melody. But this can be fixed with lowpass or EQ. Personally, I prefer EQ.
You've really got something good going with this song, but I don't think it qualifies as Hardstyle just yet. Just extend it and add to it.
p.s., I agree. Hardstyle is very under appreciated and under rated. It saddens me that the world guzzles happy hardcore and anthem trance as fast as the producers are cranking out their albums. People need to learn to pace themselves.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
