Awesome beat man I've always loved trance and this just adds on to my liking to the genre! Great beat! The only reason I took off a .5 of a star because the song is kind of repetitive but it is still a amazing song so if I could I would have rated this song a 4.8 but that means it would round up to a five so... There's your rating XD check out my channel and in the next week you will see this song there!
I like the melodies a lot, as well as the instruments (especially the distorted mid-range bass at :06). The intro seemed a little more rushed than in your other tracks, but I still liked it, and it was definitely very climactic and catchy. The instrument at 1:23 was a little too harsh and loud, but I liked how you led into the melody at 1:59, which was probably a favorite point of the song for me. I also like what you did at 2:37 - giving the melody a new instrument made it seem...more varied than it actually was. XD I agree that it is quite a bit repetitive. I like the bassiness around 4:15, and how that leads into a very conclusive ending. It even loops pretty well! :D Awesome structure and transitions as always. Keep at it, Matt! ;D
I think the mixing needs a lot of editing.The claps sound too loud and not eq'd enough. I liked your melody, but the instrument used for the melody had too many high frequencies and it was annoying to listen to. The hi hats did not sound good, I probably just didn't like the samples. The kick sounds like it's not eq'd. The piano is too loud and also doesn't sound eq'd.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
