*This is an NG cut, which means the intro and ending drums have been cut off allowing this to go straight to the point. Also, the quality is lower because it is on 128kbps, while the radio cut is 192kbps and the original mix is 320kbps.*

After like 4 monthes since my last piece, I come back with another Progressive House track. This one allowed me to work on my mixing as well as my mastering, which I believe, still needs a little more work.

Nostalgia in Space is one of my more emotional tracks, focusing more on different progressions and atmosphere throughout the tune. This makes it differ from the song's counter-part, Feels Like Meh. Also, this track uses subtle hat programming without the use of loops, which I haven't done since Final Thought. Like all my productions, this track is done entirely within Propellerhead's Reason 4.

So on to track details and discoveries:
-I found out that it is better to manipulate drums on the NNXT sampler than just running it on ReDrum. Also, the drum samples sound better in quality when I use NNXT for some reason so I decided not to use ReDrum at all.
-I also improved how I layer my claps and snares, giving it a little more punch by sliding some of the samples right before the kick drum.
-I now use the SubTractor synth for my bass patches and I route it through a vocoder EQ because it sounds a lot more heavy as opposed to a regular EQ.
-All drum samples are layered, with no loops added.

Track Summary:
Time Spent - 7-9 days
Samples used - Xfer xfrscd01, Reason Sound Bank
Instruments used - Thor, Subtractor, NNXT Sampler
Influences - Dinka (Green Leaf), Adam K & Soha (Who Cares)
Programs Used - Propellerhead's Reason 4

The first 30 second remind me of cosmosis and the song as a whole has a nice flow.

Listen son,

I don't know if you hear this a lot...
but your tracks are so good

I truly do believe you could get yourself signed to record label.
You've got a gift my boy, don't let it go to waste.


ure only 15 and already i could compare this song with the works of dj tiesto. Realy smooth. Keep up the good work and the future will explode with greatness for u.

I think I love you...

No I'm just kiddin. But seriously... this is awesome on to many levels to describe.
Really good. It... it blends more than it mixes. Mixes is to harsh of a word. Really calm and smooth. Plus it evolves with a liquid transition. So clean and precise. Wow.
5/5 10/10. Amazing. I rarely write reviews this long. Anyway, keep up the good work.
