This bad boy right here, has been sitting in my unfinished projects folder for about a week now. I finally got up the must to finish it. I showed it to a couple of people and they said they really liked it so I am releasing it here all official like. Comments, or questions are greatly appreciated.


Could use some work.

Overall, this track could use some work. There is potential in an unorthodox track like this (and I mean that in a good way). I don't know whether you were trying to achieve the trance feel or were going for something different, but since you titled it as such, I'll make the assumption. :]

Straight up, I don't feel the trance, and that's more a problem with the composition itself rather than the production. Trance is often very melodic, making good use of minor keys and (pretty much) always harmonizing chords and melodies to achieve that surreal, emotional sound. While this track is certainly melodic, and even energetic, they aren't cutting it. As I said before, whether this was what you were really trying to go for, I don't know, but I thought I'd give my two cents there.

On the production side, you have a very clean and pleasant mix, but it needs more variation. For example, the lead saw is carrying the listener throughout the entire track -- you use it extensively, but with its ever-present sound, it gets dull and even transparent after a while. You need to change it up a bit: filter sweeps, chorusing, and/or things to slightly vary the sound signature a bit to keep the listener on their toes. Spend more time making your mix interesting and dynamic, rather than just getting your sounds and composition in and calling it a day.

Anyway, I said a bunch, but I hope this helps. Look forward to hearing more from you.
