A first attempt at House or... Trance... something. I'm not too sure so I'll just put it here until someone tells me otherwise. Advice is greatly appreciated.

(From what AxeFX tells me, it's Trance. The move begins.)

Well - simply put, the way you pulled the song together really makes it sound like "house" and a lot of dance, ( all of them are part of the family of electronic) It was a nice piece however, ( one of my favorite parts of trance is its organization ) it wasnt really organized like a trance piece, I mean there are trance pieces that put you in the song really fast, however they add powerful basses and variate their pitch. Also, something else the piece is definitely missing is the "sweep" portion of trance. I would highly suggest increasing the depth of the song - add better transitions - preferably sweeps. Now, if you ever quote me on something, know that right now I really have only one semi-trance song on NG, and its a preview.

Exactly see? It kind sounds "house" like to me, at least. I'm not entirely sure where or how to place it. But I'll be certain to add those elements to it. Thanks!

hmm its hard to tell,.. i mean it got great potential, quality is pretty much full HQ,
and its hearable you do D&B and stuff like that.
perhaps a more dance-trance kinda song. but heck dont believe everything they tell you,
including me.

its also pretty hard to give advice to improve this piece..
it does not get boring, quality is far from perfect (like i said earlier)
altho.. the melody can use a bit more 'trance'
sorry to give such a bad review here...

Jenni-Harry4eva3 responds:

Nah, it's fine bro. A review is a review all the same :) Thanks!


WOOT! nice side chain action buddy! diggin the style. sounds like you put allot of work into this, keep it up!

Jenni-Harry4eva3 responds:

Thanks budday.


It was a little too repetative for me..but its okay

Jenni-Harry4eva3 responds:

You gotta give me more than that. This says nothing at all.

not house

This is definitely trance. Not that it really matters, but if you wanted this to be house, first you would need a deeper kick. I think you have too many hi-hats going on, playing a bit too randomly. Try and tame the beat a bit more so it has more groove. The bassline, while a bit faint, was good. Again, I think the beat prevented the bassline from really making its presence known, but it is deep and well done. The biggest contributor to the "trance sound", would be your pads. The sidechaining is well done and adds pump, but also sounds a bit distant from your beat. Try and EQ your samples so they blend better.
Obviously this review is under the assumption you wanted to make house. It definitely has a chill, trancey vibe going for it, which sounds good. But the biggest improvement I can see regardless of what genre you're going for, is make your kick deeper.

Jenni-Harry4eva3 responds:

Thank you. Now I can definitely discern between both House and Trance. Like I said, first attempt at something, albeit I wasn't sure if it was House or Trance. Thanks for that. I was having a bit trouble with the bass and the kick conflicting with each other because of they're subby aspects, so I'll take your word for it. Thanks! :D
