I know the name doesn't match this so well, but hey it's damn catchy XD

So this is my first posted track using Massive for some of my synths, in this case the chords you hear right at the intro and throughout the song. Have to admit, if you want a truly full sounding synth with good bass presence when needed, Massive does the job.

Had fun with it, actually finished the initial score in just 2 hours, spent a couple days doing cleanup and tweaks :)

All synths created from scratch with Harmor and Massive.

I get a strong Techno vibe but it's not repetitive enough to actually be techno but I love what you may have taken from it this is gold!

Well put together.

Specific thoughts:
At some point in the song you should hand over control from the main aggressive saw synth. 3 minutes of the same synth and at the same rhythm playing the same set of chords is rather tiring. Introduce a new melody and instrument; alternatively, use something you already have, the slides on the buzzy square bass are really great and i'm surprised you didn't bring that bass out more.

be careful with mixing. in quiet parts that main synth is slightly overpowering. In climax sections you bring in the drums, bass, etc. and the main synth is somewhat drowned out.

keep making music!
