This is my first minimal house track. After listening fully, please review.

Thank you,

Minimal is the key here

This is a nice piece, especially considering that the way you've created it doesn't really have that much variation, so as a result, you wouldn't expect me to be raving about a track that was nearly six minutes in length, due to me being a real stickler for variation throughout the track.

As I listen to this piece, I can really feel the expression of the author come through. The bass is fast and thunderous, while the way that the melody blends in for the introduction is really nicely done, presenting a much more balanced track than you might have expected without reading the notes or listening beyond the first minute.

I thought that the pauses were too long at around the 1 minute mark, so that was the only real blemish on the piece.

Thank you for your great and helpful review. Always appreciated.

Nice bass

I really like the bass. Even though the bass line gets repetitve towards the end of the song due to it's minimalisticness (wow, is that a word? ^^) it still is very powerful and I really would like to hear that a lot louder than I am able to hear it. XD

I can really imagine people dacing to this song in a disco.

The progression of the song is nice as well. It starts off with very little but more and more gets added to it the longer it plays. This makes the song very interesting for the listener, as s/he is "forced" to keep listening. Nice job!

Kick it

Very kicky and amazing feel you got going here.

Bass: Very loud and awesome sounding.

Electro drums: Sounds quite awesome, like how it starts to sound like a kick and clap and quickly develops into a nice sounding beat very quickly, awesome.

Overall: Very nice piece of work for only using two instruments.

Thank you for the great review!

trance house lol

The instruments and samples meshed really well and the melody was good :), you are great with percussion. I liked the rhythm variation in the saw synth, very tight, short cuts are nice. i love hammonds lol, nice work there. I am no expert lol, but if you want my constructive criticism then this is what i think could be worked on to make this a ten in my book, but i am no king lol, just opinion. Work on song structure, listen to some really famous house artists and use their basic song structure, but then add your own lil twist to make it uniquely yours. Use some reverb on the instruments, or echo fx. that is about it :). Not much work to be done on this piece, thanks for the listen and song :)!
