Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

to be honest.. not bad;)

You asked for suggestions and you shall receive.
I gotta say, you must have been in a really happy mood :p
I love the intro. Loved how that note held and then that reverse came in. Put a crash or a sweep right after that! I love the closed rolling high hats. That harmless sliding lead is great. Great catchy melodies. Your kick should always be your main point in your song. And at the climax of this song, your leads and bass are kind of drowning out your purcussiin. Just make sure you eq your leads and basses and make more room for your kick and snares and class to cut through the mix. Just keep working on your mixing and mastering. Next time you come over ill give you some extra tips on all this stuff :p
I thought the piano came in a little too early to serve as a breakdown section, so I would add acouple more synth melodies and such in to make the song a little longer.. I love the piano melody. Good job with that! Other than all this stuff. I would add like a sidechained sub bass once the bass comes in, to give it more of a dancey feel and to fill out the song a little more. Also, I think you are ready to branch off and try sylenth now cause thats an amazing synth for trance and techno. Look up some tutorials on that when you have the time! Alsooooo don't be afraid to put a bunch of effects on your leads and stuff to make them sound less "cliche". It's not a bad thing. But getting out of relying on presets Is a must. Start trying to make all your sounds cause trust me it will help you so much In the long run. Andddd finallyyyyy, you have to change up your drum patterns mister :p even if its just a slight change of high hats or something. Especially for techno and trance. Also the 4 kicks and 2 snares is a good drum pattern for trance and techno. So. That was my review. Sorry it was extremely long:p haha your improving dude. The more songs you make the better you will get. I promise :p just keep experimenting and learning and you will be crazy good before you know it! :D
