Starting out with some more "party-ish" music :P

Hope you enjoy it :)

Considerably good for a first dance track! :)

I really liked the synth you used in the beginning! Nice progression, the ping-pong delay worked really well. The claps could use some more highs in my opinion, and maybe a slight reverb.
The bass synth coming in at 0:30 sounds good, but because it's syncopation is slightly different from the lead it doesn't really match with the rhythm. Also some notes seem to be slightly off-key. But the sound of it is really nice!
It's kinda weird how you take away the percussion at 0:45. I guess this was supposed to add to the buidl-up, but it's a bit to spontaneous and probably would sound better with a crash symbol or a white noise hit. The build-up itself is also kind of empty.
The drop, on the other hand, is pretty good considering the build-up isn't very present. The kick could stand out a little more though, but the beat is pretty solid. I like how you gated the synth at 1:30, good variation :)
The breakdown was simple, but it worked really well! Nothing to say about that.
The ending is really abrupt, which is too bad. A little fade-out would've been nice.

Overall this track is not bad, but it needs attention at some points, try to work on that! ;)
I listened to your other tracks and believe that you're talented enough to be scouted for the Audio Portal, congratulations!

Thanks for the feedback, dude! Didn't expect to get 5 stars at one of my first tracks anyway, but 3.5? I'm DAMN happy with that :)

Glad you enjoyed it, even though it's not perfect.
I will definitely keep the things you mentioned in mind for the next one I'm doing.
And yes, the ending isn't perfect either - I was thinking about some kindof fade-out, but couldn't do a proper one...
