Couple of things to think about though...
1. It need's a bit more energy (i read the author comment but still)
2. probs should extend it by building the beat up and then into the breakdown
3. the main synth gets abit repetitive after a while tbh
other than that nice job

Highly progressive for a house track, nicely done.
Cool introduction; quite muted and downplayed, but the buildup is enough that I found myself at 0:40 without thinking it was repetitive. Which is a feat in itself, given that it sounds like just one synth playing throughout. It also feels like as it gets louder, more facets of the synth are coming out, as if you're automating it the entire way through, or adding little undertones of other synths, not to take prominence over the main synth but simply to colour it a little more and keep it varied.
The drum has a really nice bass to it, and probably comes in right at the necessary time to. It's got a relatively simple beat, but works well and makes the break at 1:59 back to the synth sound unique, even though the same synth has been playing throughout. By 2:17 though, it feels like a different synth. THe emphasis is in a different place, or at least sounds like it, which is really cool. You've got a nice bassy sound as well as little flecks of the higher frequencies so this one mass of ambient synth sound works really well on its own, a it's supported by a lot of other undertones which work really well.
As it is, I think it's a pretty cool track. If you had time I'd say think about extending this even further; see how far you can progress this one idea, or maybe even change it into a new idea for another section. You've got a good buildup here, can you go even further?

Thanks for the review! There's no automation with the synth except for cutoff, volume and sidechaining (if you count that), I guess it just felt like there was more to it, but it was just one synth :).
The only reason I didn't continue it further was because I didn't want it to be too repetitive, also I ran out of ideas like I always do :D
-It was slower than slow but you hit the nail right on it. It's very euphoric and plays nicely in the background if you are doing something else. I wouldn't say it's entirely build-up though. It does reach a peak and stays there so only the first two thirds of it is build-up.
-The light build-up and suttle background noise play out nicely for the first minute and a half. This to me allowed for the bass to come in really nicely and build up. If you ever wanted to make a suite you could use this as your background and build up later in the song. Just a suggestion.

Thanks a lot! I didn't think anyone would really like the bass, I myself found it to be kinda crap lol.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
