First track of 2016!!!

I've been working on a bunch of songs recently, but none of them are turning out right, so I've taken a break to start refining my sound more. This is the first track that I'm releasing on my journey to refine my sound and become a better artist (if you can call this music art :p).

So tell me what you think of it! I've worked hard on it these last few days and I'm proud of it, but I still need some constructive criticism if I'm ever going to improve. Thanks!

This is a hard one actually.
In a way, I think it's poorly made. In another I love it and think it is genius.
The sound design is rather uncreative and full untouched presets that I've heard thousands times .
I would advice you to do as Sequenced said and try to learn a bit more about sound design. I'm in the process of learning it myself actually. There's a lot of great books and youtube tutorials about it that I would really recommend you to watch if you want to make that sound that defines your music.

As for the good stuff, the mixing is great actually. the sounds work really well togetherr and fill each other out. The structuring of the track is very creative, and I never felt bored while listening to it. I do think it needs some variation in melody thouh. While you did a grat job with the structure, that only compensates the fact that the melody is samey. Also, did you put a phaser or something on the kick? I love that effect where the kick changes volume and it's intensity. It's close to genius for this track.

Overall a good track, but there are some small things you can fix on to make full use of its real potential.

Honestly, this review is one of the most helpful and substantial that I've ever received, and I appreciate it a bunch! I will start to try to learn sound design now, and I'm sure that'll take a while to get down, but definitely worth it in the long run!!! And actually, fun fact, I used 2 completely different kick sounds. I was a little worried about how that would work out, and I'm stoked that you enjoyed it! I'm experimenting with repetition and structuring a lot right now, and I have yet to refine my taste in style with melodies. I'm going to try to add more variation and make my tracks more dynamic in the future. Again, thanks so much for this review, this actually helps me out a lot!!

Has a very catchy beat to it and yes, I do agree that the mastering could need some adjustments. That is pretty much the only thing that gets me.

Thanks for the review!! Yeah, I'm going to spend the next few months working on mastering and synthesis as well. I'm super happy that you liked the track though!! Reading stuff like this puts me in a good mood for the day, so thanks!

Another Trance producer! Glad to see our genre is still alive here in NG. I love the breakdown at 1:00 but it surely needs a better mastering, I enjoyed the peaking chords and the bass sequence, they fit this style of Trance. The only thing this needs is improvement in mastering and equalization. Keep it up! You have great potential here :D


P.S: By the way, It would be great if you could share a review in one of my most recent Trance releases, thanks in advance for your consideration:
