First electronic song I've finished. A lot of it isn't great and I kinda rushed it after a while of working on it but I think there's some parts that are alright. It's not well mixed either because I had a problem with the hi-hats so I had to turn them down a lot. I'll hopefully be posting more on my soundcloud as well as here. y-2/stuff

Well, it's not terrible for the first track you've finished, but it definitely could do with some work.

First off, the volume is really really low for me. Crank that up a bit, so people don't have to turn their speakers up to max to hear what's going on.

The buildup is far too slow at the beginning IMO. It takes about a moment for the heavier synths to kick in. Even when they do, they seem a bit distorted.

The biggest issue I have with this track is that it's very very repetitive. There are some effects lain on top of it, but the fact is that it's very much the same all throughout with the same beats, same synths and fairly similar melodic line. The outro is also very dragged out, and it doesn't really feel like an ending to the song, it rather just drags out.

Experiment with using more layers, and especially experiment with the beats. They can do wonders. Variation is a must, don't force yourself to make a long track if you don't know what to put in it. A 2-minute track with variation is better than a 4-minute track that gets stale really fast.

Good luck

Thanks a lot for the feedback and sorry about the volume I didn't do great at mixing it and a lot of it kept getting messed up everytime I exported it so I had to take a lot of the levels down so it wouldn't worse than it already does.

As for the intro I wasn't sure what to do there tbh. At first I had a piano line but that didn't really work so I had to take it out. Ended up with a long intro of just drums and ended up thinking "meh its ok", just the product of my terrible laziness.

And a lot of the synths were really gotten by accident I was hoping to go for a Justice style distorted thing but I couldn't really get it to work. And thanks for the comment on variation I didn't know I was doing that, I guess I was just sticking to the one riff I was happy with.

Thanks a lot for the review, they only people who have properly commented on this are a couple of my friends so its nice to get an honest opinion and something that will actually help me.
