With all that amazing build up at the beginning I was expecting something wonderful, but it just got to an annoyingly high note without really changing anything. It was really disappointing and I hope you eventually do decide to rework the song. It has a LOT of potential :D

AliceMako responds:

Well the thing is this is just some parts of a live set of mine which i intended to turn into a full track provided it had at least as good a reception as it did on the dancefloor, which unfortunately did not prove to be the case.

There's a notable difference between playing electronica live as in on the fly, pressing play to start a playlist in order to justify that it says dj in front of your name on a flyer or sitting in front of the computer whilst composing a track over the course of time.

This demo has not performed well at all online and thus doesn't justify spending further resources on my part.

All this said, thanks for your shout out and i'm glad you enjoyed some of it.

Hehe your locals are right ;D

AliceMako responds:

Maybe they are, i tend to take my cues from the overworked and underpaid.

I think you have this song in the wrong category... This sounds more like industrial than techno. But anyway...

Synths... good
Bass... very good

The song felt a little shallow though, maybe you could add more synths or material to the song? I get that industrial is supposed to be repetitive like that, but what started in the beginning continued throughout the entire song and never changed. The song built up for something and just kept the bar right at the buildup, repeating.

I didn't really like the fact that the ending was so abrupt.

AliceMako responds:

Industrial techno is still techno, feel free to correct me, but you'll have to forgive me for making the best of the minimalistic genre distinctions here. (pet peeve of mine)

I gave up on posting full tracks here, my experience is that they perform poorly given the kind of music i typically produce, your statement that you find this repetitive already highlights exactly this point and only reinforces my bias.

So no 8 minute version unless a LOT of people say pretty please with sugar on top :3

Lack of substance, well this is a fairly crowded piece with not a lot of headroom so i'm just going to disagree with you on adding synths, the ending i could draw out for a bit so i'll see what i can do.

Sorry you didn't enjoy it.
