*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.

This is what i call music! It really puts me in a good mood. Sounds great, when you're playing it on 5.1 speakers. Man, you should get paid for this. Keep up the good work!

i think the kick should be turned down slightly, its masking the other sounds on my headphones. This is a long track, so I am happy to hear all the dynamic variation.

the part at four minutes should have started the climax, not the build-up to it. As is, it starts to drag on during the last two minutes...

solid shit, though


I love this song ! great beat and good changes and ahh 10/10 : D

Wow amazing

Very very pro sounding. Perfectly balanced and a great mix of instruments to give a very chill house piece. Effects and everything fit right into place. I don't think I can find much to complain about. Again wonderful work with this one.
