New Hardstyle Track.
I took more of a euphoric path this time around.
Also, I was testing to see how much I could do with a simple vocal sample.
Enjoy! (:

Clap jump

Well this certainly has a very cheery and dance like atmosphere to it I think and I like the very upbeat flow of it as well. The tune seems to go up and keep you feeling happy. I like the vocals as well, where are they from anyways? They just make you feel even happier I think. This piece is a very nicely put together dance piece, put some strobe lights with it and you are good to go.

The synth sounds very thick as well done. I like when you put in a heavier synth note from time to time, kind of reminds me of menu screens from RPG games actually. The bass was nice as well. The drums help keep things picked up and keep it all going as well.

I like when it breaks down for a bit feeling calm and introducing only a piano, hi hat, and some clapping. Then it slowly picks back up the full beat and makes you feel entirely happy as you simply relax and enjoy yourself to the music here as well.

Overall, very nice sounding dance song, I like it.

Zomg this is pretty close to perfect! x3

I love the vocal work, and the perfect hardstyle build-up. The Euphoric-Hardstyle idea was a very interesting one, and I like how you pulled it off. The composition of this piece is wonderful, and actually very well done (you obviously have some very good hardstyle influences). I also really liked how you switched back and forth between the hip-hop beat and the hard-style beat.

I didn't so much love the bass though, and that's a huge factor when it comes to writing hardstyle. I also would have liked to hear a slightly better job in mastering of your lead and bass samples.

Overall; this has a fck-ton of potential, just work with it a bit more.
