It definitely sounds post-modern, I'm not too sure about the trance part, it's a mix of more than just trance. The beats sound like something out of hip-hop, the arpeggio sounds trance, later in the track the beats go from hip-hop to drum-and-bass-like. At about 2:00 and 3:40, that synth sounds a bit glitchy. It's just a whole bunch of genres, and I like it.

Haha who needs genres anyways! I always have a bit of trouble picking which genre to submit under. Anyways, thanks for the kind words and rating!

Sounds like a remix of spore soundtrack :D thats a good thing ;)

GershBeats responds:

thanks! I think I get what you mean :)

I love this song. It's varied and textured. It's smooth and simple, but it's complicated and twisted. It really is a city in disguise. Very skillful mixdown and use of atmospheric effects to create a very "wandering in a night industrial city" mood. Masterful!

GershBeats responds:

You're too kind! :)

Although am not into trance music but if ever I want to adjunct, I would love to integrate classical with trance. For the ears of a layman like me, this is really a marvelous piece. Drone sound perfectly fits with vocals and love how the beats jump into the song in the start. Putting reverb on beats might have sounded muddy so beats are fine as well. Just my opinion as per my taste. 5/5 without doubt :)

GershBeats responds:

Thank you kind sir!

Pretty good. Like I said, I don't really like clean sounds, and the drums could've been a lot dirtier to give them more character. But that's a matter of taste. I like the piano, the pads and the other synthesizers. They make the song very beautiful and interesting.

GershBeats responds:

Thank you thank you! I'll certainly experiment with the effects on the drum and see if I can improve it somewhat.
