Wow this is good!

This built in an actually pretty interesting way for a techno track. The way you played around with all the little bits before setting them together was not only good musical foreplay, but it made the drop at 2:54 so rad. Stellar work. Maybe some of the drum sounds do sound a bit stock, but you'll develop your own sounds as you go on. Try taking the drums your working with and stacking them on top of another kit and blending your the sounds together to make your own.

Some pretty catchy stuff, but you'll probably get more traction in trance than here. Some pretty sweet sounds around 40, and the low pass play is nice. I feel like you diverged from the mainstay of your chorus around 00:50 to 01:00. Once things got moving again at around 01:30 though, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The 303 bass feels a little dry in places. Lead around 2:10 is spectacular at its entrance with the shaky tremelo pitch mod.

Overall, it certainly doesn't sound bad, but I feel this is in the wrong genre. Maybe Dance or Trance would be good places to put it. Don't worry about that for now, though. I'm not good at divining genre anyway. I have a couple gripes, however.

-I feel like the cutting of the intro and outro is a bit unnecessary unless it is a consistent theme of the track's melody or accompaniment.
-The pads and basses sound like presets. Nothing wrong with that on its own, but they don't mesh perfectly, and a smooth soundscape is everything.
-Watch your leveling. The mid range between 00:20 and 00:30 was almost painful in my left ear from some frequencies sticking out so much more than others.
-Some parts of the song felt almost copied and pasted, like around 01:02, where the main theme came in.

Pretty catchy tune you've made! Keep it up!

Thank you for the detailled review and useful feedback, especially about EQ
Definitely a lot to improve, listening back to it monthes later^^ Still its one of my favourite track.

I admit i m always lost when choosing a genre for my tracks. I must be stuck in the past where everything was called Techno.
Now I m more like: i will create something and let audiophiles decide what genre it fits best ahah^^
They know better :)
Thanks again!
