fucking brilliant mate well done on this. the intro is so nice and the synth work is really well thought. your leads are sounding nice and big it just feels like you kick and bass are conflicting a bit with eachother, perhaps high passing the subs out the kick might solve the problem or sidechain compression?
Now this is high quality stuff. This almost sounds like deamau5 style at some parts, and madeon style at others. There is so much excitement and variety in this song, I don't even know where to start. I was unsure of the song at the very beginning, but once that beat kicked in at 1:30, I was completely into it. Now when I go back and listen to it, I find the whole build up epic. I can't find anything bad to say about this song. Perfect party music lol. I'll be downloading this :3
Noticed that you mentioned this was complextro, so I decided to check it out :p
Nice, soothing intro. I like the synths you've used in here.
Damn, 1:30 was powerful. I really like the high arp in the background, it really added a lot to the 'wow' factor, so nice touch. I really like the build-up as well, especially the pitch drop near the end.
I recognize a few of the loops in the drop which you've chopped up, and you've done a good job combining them. Unfortunately, the problem with loops is that they are usually already processed and all that jazz, which makes it difficult to mix them well.
Actually, perhaps it is your kick that is being a bit problematic in the mix. I feel like it might be taking up too much low end. Instead of bumping up the lows on the kick, perhaps you could add a sub so that the presence of bass is still there, but without the muddiness the kick is currently producing.
Try messing around with sub basses and whatnot, perhaps you'll find what you're looking for :)
In any case, I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish, so you deserve props for that. The mix may be problematic but the structure and synthwork is definitely spot-on. Keep it up!
That's most likely it, I think. Mrgh. I wish my subwoofer was still working...
Thanks! Really my first try with something this detail-oriented. I'll see if I can get a cleaner mix on the next track I work on (whenever that might be), I think I'm just gonna let this one simmer for a while.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
