Started working on this song last weekend, got it the way i want it so far, just wanted to show what i have so far and get some suggestions. Thanks!

P.s. in no way is this song finnished, the drum parts are very repetitive and the song loops a bit, It is mostly a work in progress, i just wanted some critique before i get to lazy to edit anything.

In all honesty i don't know much about Techno but i'll try and give you some advice. First off, the start is great. Nice arpeggios, good rhythm and the other melody that builds up on top fits perfectly. However when we have the change at 0:44 instead of sounding fuller and more prominent the melodies feel a little more lost. I think you need to up the treble in that part of the mix or do something to stop the piece getting lost in the bass. The change at 1:30 is refreshing, and brings in a new tone and pace for the song. However i feel the melodies in this section are sometimes a little random. The gating in the higher pitched synth is really cool and creates some nice rhythms. The little part at 2:28 is super stylish, love the distortion and pitch bend and the fade to silence. I feel you could have a had a short swell form the silence into the drop but i'm not sure if that'd actually sound good. The break down at 3;00 is great too, feels magical and spooky. Nice use of eq and reverb. When it starts again 3:44 i think some more glitchy elements and a general louder feel would have seemed more natural than what you have which seems a little subdued. When the song looped i actually thought the intro was the outro, so i'd try putting it at the end because it's a good call back and reminds the listener of the pieces vast progress.
All in all it was a surprisingly entertaining listening experience, especially as i'm not a big fan of the genre. Great work and all the best in finishing it!

Thank you very much for your insight, Ill take your suggestions into consideration and hopefully have a great final product. I will definitely use the acoustic strings as an outro and try to progressively fade out from there. I am very proud of that part at 2:28. Again, thanks for the extra pair of ears, i have already started revising some stuff.

Much obliged!
