Took a melody that I had in memory for a long time now and finally made it into a complete track. I have another track that uses the melody in a much less fleshed out way posted on here. ("You win some you lose some") I just couldn't figure out how to get it into a full song until recently. I have so many problems and so many things that annoy me with this mix, but i'm just glad a made a decent effort at making a full song out of this melody, thanks to some 65daysofstatic/No Man's Sky inspiration.

You've come a long way in just a year, dude! I think you used to be called icyflamez or something when you were asking around for help in the FL questions thread. Now here you are throwing out some pretty legit trance tracks on the portal. I'm in love with this one. The level of atmosphere in this is almost tangible.

Wow i'm surprised you remembered my old name! Lol thanks for the comment!

This song is perfect. Imagine you're walking in the city, and the rest of the people are freezed. Great mix, nothing to criticize, amazing song.

Lethal-Input responds:

Awesome imagery! Thanks!

Been a while since I've listened to your tracks, and let me say first that the mix is way cleaner and more professional sounding. It progresses very nicely. However...
- The sound design is good, but its basic. While you don't need to reinvent the wheel, it would still be nice to hear some sound or FX that makes me say "Whoa, how'd he do that"
- And it seems a bit longer than 3:42. If you added a thing or two that were noticeably changing how the track progresses, it would be more interesting, and would be more catchy.

Overall, nice track. You have improved a lot.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the detailed review! Yeah I do feel like this track ends up getting stagnant in some ways. It has not aged well with me well at all tbh

Feels like one is traveling rapidly through space. The planets, then the abyss of space, the stars, the nebula all whipping by.... but in ones on reference frame everything is slow. Looking out , seeing one's half reflection in the glass. Everything that one knew, faded away.

And then you smash into something at near the speed of light (chrrrr at the end)

Nice desaturation at some points, really kicks it home.

Lethal-Input responds:

Awesome! lol

Thanks for the comment!

The biggest thing that stood out for me was how professional and smooth it sounded. Although a lot of it is simple, it comes out really catchy. The beat was solid throughout, and the melody fits in really nicely. However, the entire time I was waiting for it to become a little "more". Just like something was missing. Still, you did a really good job, keep it up.

Lethal-Input responds:

Thanks! Yeah I feel like I needed to put something really different in there, and I almost did at first, but it kinda failed so I just stuck with the way it was. Right now I feel like the part where the kick comes in feels a little weak and empty, so I'd probably a bit more bounce there if I were to do it again
