I've recently been having some massive writers block, so I managed to make a generic techno song, tell me what you think!

I definitely love this track. I think it would work better if it was solely piano, but that's probably just personal preference. However it seemed like something was off. It stayed with the piano and in the end the synth came in. It's not bad, I just found it somewhat awkward.
There are my two cents.:p


Lovely Intro :]

The mix however does seem sort of unsettled. Everything before 2:27 sounds like all the different channels were "sidechaining" each other. I don't know if that was deliberate, but I found it kind of off-putting.

Also, the song sounded as if it stopped at 2:27. I can see how you tried to pause the song, then release into the main chorus (to make the "drop" seem bigger), but it didn't really work. It felt like it lost all momentum. Try bridging the gap with an underlying (deep) electro bass, or another side chained pad. After 2:27 though, it was smooth sailing from then on :) The true nature of the song was revealed. A really thumping track and the "sidechaining" effect on the mix became less noticeable.

So yeah, ^those are just my suggestions^. Obviously you DON'T HAVE to take them into consideration. I'm not trying to come across as an expert. I just thought you might like to hear my way of doing things :) And have an honest review like you always desire :P

Needs some fixing up, particularly the mix and EQing. 5/5 8/10 :D

Solkrieg responds:

To be honest, the EQ needs no work done. I know what you're trying to say but the master EQ is already set as a dance song (I set it up myself). The mixing does need work, that's why I said it was just a generic tech song.

This is really beautiful

My favorite! <3 Keep up the good work.

Solkrieg responds:


nice :)

its very soft and relaxing but it reminds me of more of a trance instead.
i really enjoyed the way it built and evolved on itself.

Solkrieg responds:

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it :)

As for the trance, I couldn't really think of which it belonged in more, trance or techno.

Not really into techno.

But this settles it for me ;D

Solkrieg responds:

:P Glad you still enjoyed it!
