I think this song is amazing in every facet. Even though its Mislabeled as a Hardcore song I think its a great representation of the title you portray the man working frivolously tweaking, smoothing, hammering and sawing away at what they want to do for the rest of their life. It just feels like everything you felt while making it came through the minute details. The Buildup at 2:50 feels like someone got so close and fell but instead of quitting they came back with a renewed determination and the Drop at 3:15 almost states how close they got and their unwillingness to fall again. I think it is by far my favorite of yours so far Bees.

Nice intro, still it is not hardstyle. This is techno/dance. I was waiting for the hardstyle to come the whole 7 minutes. Too bad, you should review how to make a hardstyle melody rhythm and how to make a hardstyle kick. A hardstyle kick is not a normal kick with a distorted bassnote after it. And the buildup is quite sudden.

This is some cool shit.

This is one of those songs that is better left on full volume for you to party.

I like your intro, but I think the song itself coming in too fast. though it would need a better structure 0-34 secunder you type a basic harmony of the song then explodes into full song hardstyle. It's sort of a little "oh what's happening here."
I have favorite hardstyle artists like Dj Coone very good insperation.

Then you can always discuss how long the song should be, for me it is not important as long as it caught the ear of the song that it is always something happening. I listened to 4min + and it became repetitive, adding piano, another synth does not help. I simply think you built the song without having any planning how it should be but you just drove on. A good foundation for me is an intro> Break a verse>, chours and a crazy buildup> Main build. > Breakdown> build up again> an outro. but there are of course different ways to build on but personally a song must follow a red line and it does not end here.
People say it's part of the art. The music is an art.

Otherwise, I think it was a good song the only thing that you need is just some insperation.

Thanks for the feedback. I will say this is probably my first real attempt at Hardstyle. At the very least I did intend on having the song end with a rondo with a key change. Apart from that there were parts that were improvised such as some of the key changes and the build up at 4:55. That was more of a transition to the next part. I agree though, as far as hardstyle I do need some inspiration. I will have to check out DJ Coone. Thanks for listening :)
