Digging it! You instantly have some great vocal work here, and the synth emphasizes the track. It does start to get repetitive pretty quickly, and I would have liked more of a beat drop after 0:31. It goes on until 1:18, which might have been a bit too long normally, but it’s a house track and I understand that.
I love the voice, very beautiful – until it was sped up. I feel like it could have stayed at a normal tempo, and still have made the song great. When it was adjusted, her lyrics were choppy and strange, so I couldn’t understand what she was singing; her voice was already very smooth and satisfying to hear, and her second vocals didn’t have the same effect. I would have asked your singer to re-sing the choppy parts so they sound more natural, and not transformed to the tempo.
I’m enjoying your beats here; simple, but doing the job. The bass could be a little punchier, I think, but overall it’s highlighting the rest of the elements and that’s what bass is supposed to do.
I would have also liked to hear maybe a key change…? I know that’s not technically how a lot of house works. Maybe you could have gone a progressive route and put in some more instruments as well. There are about four synths total, if that, and after awhile they get a little bland.
For a house song, it’s pretty well-made, though. The sound quality is good, and your genre is accurate. The vocalist is fantastic too!
