Next of my tracks to be remastered. I'm not going to be able to post all the tracks on NG, due to the character limits on titles, but I will be posting all my other remasters on Soundcloud and my website.

I like the bass-y intro and cresendo that starts at around :14. It's climactic and catchy (as usual), but I also like what you do with the beat at :56. It adds some flavor and variation to the piece. The instruments were good (as usual), and I don't know how you did the effect with that instrument at 1:09, but it sounded really cool! :D It was a little repetitive and long, and you already know what I'm going to say about switching up the style of your pieces sometime :P ...but I liked how this one had those bass-y parts in it, and the breakdown at 2:59 was good, but I thought the transition leading into it could've been smoother. I liked the variations with the bass at 5:44, but I thought the ending could've been stronger. Overall, good job, but I'd honestly be much more motivated to keep reviewing your pieces if you tried experimenting with some different genres. Keep up the good work, DylnMatrix. :)

Thanks for the review! I will be trying out some new genres soon, I just need the right tools to do so. I'm looking at buying Massive when I start working this summer so I can start trying out some Complextro/Dubstep/whatever I decide. I'm also going to be working with a friend of mine who writes Electro House stuff to learn how to make songs in that style. So the experimenting will begin soon! Just need the right stuff to do it :)

But during this time, I'm going to be remastering a lot of my old tracks due to me learning more how to properly master my tracks, and I was curious as to how my older tracks would sound with the mixing and mastering techniques I've learned.

Anyways, thanks for reviewing again, and hopefully I can satisfy your need to hear different stuff from me soon.
