i was so excited to make this song, the beginning is so wonderful, its a sample from a recording my friend did of the sounds of the street outside his window, the song heats up around the middle so be ready for the increase in amplitudes.

i made this song with a friend of mine in mind.

please comment on my mixing/composition, i need the input


i like it

the beat is a little too fast like dukelukeprod said
and the vocals starting it is a great idea

Nice SFX but part 2 is too hectic

I like EVERYTHING until the middle. It starts out with a nice ambience and a subtle little arp then a smooth BL (Which might be too loud) joins in - perfect so far! But what follows at 1:41 feels too abrupt and out of place. While the intro sounds like lounge/chillout, the 2. part is more on the eurodance side, 2 styles which, in my opinion, don't work together too well. It's like a preview of 2 completely different tracks.

Try to make the intro longer, introducing only the vocals at 1:41 would be pretty nice. The main groove seems too fast with everything playing in 16th notes, I'd like it more relaxed. The kick needs more sub-bass and a longer tail, It's too attack-y. The off-beat bassline (2:11) could also deal with more bass and seems too static - try adding a cutoff envelope.

As I said, the intro is very good, the main part needs some work. Due to not being a finished track I can't give you more than a 5/10 right now, but there's a lot of potential in it, so keep it up ;)
I hope that was helpful, if you want another aspect of the track listened to more closely, just tell me.
cheers, Luke

hmm... well i would feel terrible making this into two songs but man did you help me alot with this review, yeah the kick is a little to hard on velocity, i need to get out of my psy trance mode i guess haha, and as far as the cut off envelope on the bass part i think thats a good idea and would start doing that more, that will help me assign frequency space in the mix as well, maybe i would lengthen the beginning to make a longer middle and in the middle work on the build to the main part.

thank you for the review luke
