Breaking out the other side of me -- the trance afficionado!

This piece, right off the bat, makes me feel like I'm listening to 'The Man with the Machine Gun' from Final Fantasy VIII.

I don't quite dig the fact that the basses in the main melody sections, even 1:29, follow the melody -- I DO, however, dig the synths starting at 2:02.

1:08 onwards sounds like a trance progression, and was arguably my favourite part of this song. You had a drop, you had a gradual buildup back to the main melody, and I really liked it.

I've told this to many a person making trance music, and I've had the same lesson taught to me over and over again too -- which is why I'm about to repeat this to you:

The purpose of trance is to make the person lose himself in the music. The chords, the reverb, the percussions, the buildup, the melody, all play a part in this. Subgenres in EDM are made so that people can distinguish the kind of feel they would get from hearing a particular song. I like the idea behind this piece, but I couldn't lose myself in it.... I just couldn't. This felt more like techno or house -- and as a trance song, it does fall short.


1) Have an A minor pedal point in the intro, and have the melody faded somewhere in the background, to put people into the atmosphere. Then gradually bring the drums and other synths in. (Yes, I was guilty of this before, and that's why I'm suggesting this to you now.)

2) 1:08, the drop, is the chance for you to switch things up a little bit. You've done so through instrumentation, but you could also do that through chords.

3) Your leads are quite watery, and I like that -- but a little bit more could be done with the synths from 2:02. Try, perhaps, using them in the background also? Keep them in the background, but automate them (make them get slightly louder when progressing from section to section). Trance is all about peaks and valleys, highs and lows... as all music is. But here, especially so.

4) Try switching up the bass and chords a little? If you insist on going with the melody, try keep that to one section. You've got lots of things to experiment with. You've got pedal points, where the bassline is the same but the chords switch up. You've got your standard-issue, pop-music progressions. And then you've got the drop, where you can really go wild with it.
