This was ACTUALLY the first track of 2010, but it took a long time to get the levels just right during mixdown. Mastering was also a challenge, since this track includes many different synths and tons of layering. Parametric equalizers are my best friend :D. STAY WARM!

This is Great

The samples used and the mixing of this track are great. The over all production is splendid. This is a fun track easy to dance too in almost any form of dance. This is good work Great Job.


This isn't techno. If it's anything, it's dance (by the style of lead you chose here, along with the melody type). Otherwise, it's trance...a very dance-y trance.

Techno doesn't usually have chord progressions, which this one does.

Just had to throw in my 2c. hahaha

Not bad though. If you wanted to make it trance, I'd turn down the arp by 20%, make the pads a bit wider with reverb, take out the beep-y lead, change it with something saw-y. That may be cliche, but it's better than what it sounds like now. Make the bass deeper and wider as well. I feel like you pinched this song up so tight that it doesn't have any room to breathe.

Just some things to consider, that's all.

ArcticFront responds:

I really appreciate your response, this is one of the most helpful reviews I have ever received. I realized that I sorta blew the dynamic range for this song out of the water. I'm gonna have to go back in and adjust my levels for everything. Its true it has no room to breathe, its clipping the red almost every second. I gotta adjust my levels and recompress a few elements of the song to tune it up.

Thanks for the advice, i really do appreciate it when someone can be completely honest with me. I will continue to work diligently. Remember, success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

I really like your music also, keep it up!

rising tention

I like how the the music rises in tension for a suspenseful yet action like song. It wasnt that over the top though


Nice melody, mixing is a bit crappy but ah well...uhm what is this made in? FL?

ArcticFront responds:

While I appreciate your review, I would also appreciate a little constructive criticism besides "Its mixed crappily". Thanks for the review anyway!

I agree with Etalo.

I feel the same way about this.
This song doesn't sound very LIVE,
it sounds a bit muffled or something.
This is really nice though.
