Dang son, when that drop dropped, it really took me by surprise! The melody is rocking and you've got da energy! But when it happened again... it took me a little bit less by surprise. By the third time, I wasn't surprised at all. :P You've got a really solid riff here, which might be enough material to stretch out for a 2-3 minute song, but if you want to go to 5 minutes, you're going to need to let your song evolve - take the melody to new places, use new chord progressions in the chorus, etc. Excellent mixing, btw. Score: 8.5

I dont usually listen to EDM but I can tell you worked your ass off on this one.

Yes, squeaky clean highs, penetrating mids and perfect amount of lows in my opinion, they say too much of anything is bad, definitely the case for bass.

I liked the multiple differences you carefully crafted in every passing second.

Mastered quite well, rounded sounds are waaay better than sharp earpiercing sounds. You know what I mean, most people who try to take up EDM are too interested in fast pace and mostly lows or mostly mids.

This is a phenomenal example of "acceptable" EDM. That should mean a lot coming from the fact that I am a music lover not very fond of the genre, as most of what ive heard (from different artists not you) was trash.

Well done dude. (applause in text form)

Voltus responds:

Thanks again! Glad you like it that much!

Well you totally hit the deadmau5 hit chords on the head!
Great song! Great head bopper!

Voltus responds:

thank you :)

Excellent Voltus. Just excellent :D. This is definetly the kind of music I groove to :D. Loved the drums, loved the arrangement, and loved the sounds you used. Some might mean that this is a bit repeative, but this is how dance music is supposed to be IMO. I felt that there was a slight lack of a sine bass layer just to give the song that extra bass feel, and to reward the people with bass speakers and headphones ;). That's my taste though.
Wonderful tune :).
5 stars

Voltus responds:

thanks a lot, I never went all in on that sound so I'm glad you like it!

Hey. That sounds pretty good! It does remind me of Deadmau5. I have a couple suggestions. I think it is a bit quiet. It is slightly repetitive, especially closer to the end. I think even though it isn't what Deadmau5 would do, I think it would sound great. Sorry, I don't have a ton to say, and I know it took me a long time to get this done. But good job!
