Finally! A trance song which isn't generic, woo! :D. Man, I really enjoyed this submission. Let me just say that I really enjoy songs which incorporate a variety of different genres and styles, since they're so interesting to listen to and unique (which is why even I try to make loads of songs which are a mix of different genres/styles) and this is no exception.
The name defines this song perfectly; it truly is a fusion of different styles and genres, and it works really well! Also, on an unrelated note, I had a look through your submissions and found your Robot Day submission. I then realised how hard the Robot Day competition is going to be xP.
The melodies are superb, although I see (hear) this as more of an atmospheric track. The atmosphere you made is superb, with such a huge amount of depth and power in the background. Still, there is a melody, played by that piano, and it's one hell of an awesome one too. The only two things I would ask for would be:
1.) More diversity on that piano. A piano is easily the most diverse and versatile instrument out there, and you could've done a lot more with it, such as added some bass notes with the piano, maybe some chords. And stuff.
2.) More melodies for that piano. You only had one melody for the whole song, which was a bit of a let-down considering that the background was so well varied with different styles.
Still, other than that, the melodic side of this submission is absolutely amazing, with a good chord progression too.
As for the instruments, since you had a number of different genres incorporated in this song, there's a good variety of different instruments. The pads were very airy and deep, and the piano was nice quality too. Not only that, but you even added strings in the intro. I would've loved to hear more strings in this song, maybe some small section dedicated to the strings and maybe some percussion, but still, the strings were awesome quality too and were implemented flawlessly. The offbeat bass worked well too. Loved the different effects you did in the song such as the ones at 0:06, 1:04 and 1:13. The production is excellent too, and I liked the sidechaining you did, even though I usually dislike sidechaining.
The transitions, wow... Like the 3 reviewers below me said, the transitions are pristine. I'm trying really hard to find a transition which is even slightly abrupt, but I just can't. Every transition had a reverse cymbal or cool effect which made everything flow so smoothly. I especially liked the transition at 1:03-ish. So yeah, transitions were perfect. I praise too much...
Structure was excellent. You had a variety of different sections in the song, all completely different from each other, yet still work out so well, and the amazing transitions helped too. This made the variety of the song very good as well, since I never was able to predict what would happen next while I'm hearing the song. The only thing that needs variety would the piano, like I said above.
The intro was amazing. Congas, strings, effects, and then a smooth transition to the piano. What is there to complain about? Even the ending was awesome, but I think instead of fading out the final note with the saw pad you could have automated its cut off and high pass to provide a cooler effect. Nitpicks ftw :3.
I don't have much to say about the percussion. It was amazing. You had congas, trance drums, even some industrial drums at 2:25 O.o. Very original idea, good work. Kick was nice and bassey, although I would've liked to see a few more open cymbals here and there or some hat lines.
There isn't really much else to say about this, but since my tradition is to reach the characters on as many reviews as I can, that's what I'll do xD.
This song is amazing. A unique mix of genres and styles, a lot of variety, amazing atmosphere, smooth transitions, what more could I ask for? Just work on varying that piano a bit more and maybe some other nitpicks I mentioned, and it'd be perfect in my opinion. Excellent song, keep up the amazing work!
