Background or foreground, this song works it well.
I really enjoyed the melodic elements, beat was really tight and the synths were well done and the sounds were nice.
The fact that you use variation in your kick rhythm gives me hope for the future of techno. It's something that has just fallen by the wayside in a lot of music nowadays, and I think you did a good job with it.
If I might make a suggestion, I would say to use a few EQ's on your synths to give them more depth and feel. Right now they all seem very... flat, I suppose. They sound damn good melodically and sonically, but aesthetically they just seem like they could use a slight boost somewhere in the higher ranges, like between 4-8khz, and maybe even up to like 11-15khz. I know this was only done in like 4 hours, but some good mixing and mastering on this song could really turn it gold.
It's a damn good song, and I'm excited to see what else you put out :)
To me, rhythm is the better half of industrial music. Well, most genres, in my opinion. I tried to really make this sound like something you'd hear at a club - hence the name of the song, haha - and I felt like I got it, for the most part. But after listening to it a few times, I HATED the strings. I need to work on them. (Badly, I might add. Heh.)
In regards to the synth, I'm starting to notice that it needs some work, too. I may need to look into that. Though I can put notes together, mastering and mixing are something I'm trying to get better at. I'll check out some tutorials on getting that perfect synth because I really need to improve on this one.
Thanks for the review and the great advice; hopefully by this weekend I'll have something better. Haha.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
