Hey guys, been inactive for a while... I'm back.. Needed a breather :) . Coming back with this new song, hope you guys like it!

Dj - Spoonz


Arrangement...and maybe some volumes?

The leads not too bad...(though personally I don't like to see supersaw's in trance). This might fit a more Techno genre, but that's totally irrelevant.

So the melody's pretty good, I like how you dance around the notes a bit, rather than stick to the typical scales.

My main problem would be that the piece lacks variation. It's fairly monotone the whole way, and doesn't really have a destination to go to. In trance, silence is very important, and then a really full breakdown, which I'm afraid you don't have either.
To get a fuller flavour in breakdowns, try putting in some pads spewing nice, wide chords, sidechained to the kick drum, which brings me to my second problem:
The kick is too loud and too compressed. Also, it gets really boring, because it persists the whole way through! Compression should only be applied to the final piece, over-compressing tires ears, and kicks shouldn't be too loud anyways.

Not bad ideas, but when it gets down to it...needs some levels adjustments, and a different arrangement.

Meant purely as constructive crit., and please take it well!
