Another awesome remix of another awesome Spirit Wolf track!

Title - Spirit Wolf - Daydream (Silv3Ster Remix)

Program - FL 9

BPM - 172

Genre - Freeform Hardcore

Time Spent - 14h 47min

I reverted back to my older style a bit with this one, that being a lighter sound with instruments such as bells, orchestra, and piano.

Constructive criticism is welcome, but make sure to listen to the FULL TRACK before reviewing.

I recommend you listen to the original first, so you know the differences between the two.

Old school! :D

This song is really great, and it really reminds me of older Happy-hardcore tunes from the "Bonkers" era :]

The biggest thing that impressed me here though, was the distinct originality that this song has; back in the day you would listen to a Happy Hardcore compilation front to back, and only a few songs would really stick out/ stay with you... This is one of those songs my friend :]

Your drum work is great very dynamic, and it suits everything pretty well :] (Love your rather unique build-up). Your leads sound nice and clean, the bass is off the charts, and the mixing is superb!

Overall I think this track is phenominal, but it could use a bit more in the way of mastering :p (I think this tune sacrifices a bit of quality in exchange for loudness; a proper mastering job will fix that right up though) :]

Amazing Work :]

Hell yeah! I was aiming for an Oldskool feel :)

Thanks bro! I'm happy to hear this track stands out :D

Thanks! Drums are usually my primary goal in all my tracks, leads being second, and effects being third. I had a tough time keeping the bass from overpowering everything, glad to hear it sounds good!

Yeah, I gotta work on my mastering for sure, I think I may be using too many limiters and compressors, and not enough EQ work.

Thanks bro!

Light hearted and impressive

I think this tune has a lot of positives going for it, as you can certainly say that it's got uplifting tempo and drive, making the song push onwards at quite a pace. I like that, as it's not as hard as the usual techno I get given to review - these pieces tend to be a little downcast and possibly more powerful with the bass beat.

I'm not sure about the change you make to the sound in the early going, as it makes it sound a little 8-bit for me, in the first minute. This takes the edge off the sound at that stage and with so much left to prove, it really doesn't need to push too hard to impress.

The ending is certainly strange, giving a little Limp Bizkit quality to it, with the edges bass synth that you chose. Of course, it doesn't have the obnoxious vocals of Fred Durst, thought I could say that you need some vocals, preferably by a female who seems to be waiting for her hero or something along those lines. The tempo of the tune could be construed to look like someone racing against time to get to a destination, which really does need pushing a little more and to make a piece into a story really elevates your work to the next level.

Yes, through editing, you could stand to make the track a little shorter, but if you choose not to, I can see why. It's been a while since I've said this, so here goes - this is the sort of tune that could fit quite nicely into some of the levels on WipeOut games, with the fast craft flying around the track and blowing the crap out of one another, but above and beyond that, it's also a great sounding track that could have uses in many other sorts of games and even movie style pieces, though not necessarily the latter in its current form.

Dj-GST responds:

Yeah, I usually enjoy writing the softer styles more.

That was an experimental transition on my part. I wasn't sure how well it would fit with the rest of the track.

Haha, I've never heard them before, I'll check em out. In the early stages, I was trying to find some female vocals, but none of the ones that I found fit, so I basically just threw those rap vocals in at the last minute to try and make up for it.

I don't think I'd be able to shorten this track at all, I can see where you're coming from though, it's a tad long, and I had a hard time keeping it from being repetitive.

WipeOut! Love that series man, it would be badass if this track was used in a game.

Thanks for the sweet review man!

Friggin' awesome song.

My new favorite from you, good job man. Definitely did a wicked job on this one. I love the vocoded vocal samples too, nice touch.

Keep it up, you're doin' great.

Dj-GST responds:

Thanks bro! Took me alot longer than expected to finish, but I guess it paid off :D

We should do another collab some time bro.
