This has to be the best, most laid back hardstyle I've heard in a long, LONG time. Like, '07 ish. Wonderful job, expertly mixed, especially the vocals.
You been following Hardstyle for long? I hear some 2006-8 influence here. Although Revbass has made a comeback. Almost expect to hear MC Ruffian or that kickass QDance voiceover dude drop a DEF.. QON... ONE or QLIMAX! haha
Back to the track though, its solid. Troisnyx suits the genre! Good kick, good synth choice, catchy melody, good dynamics. Cant fault it to be honest. Raw and the harder end of hardstyle seems to be popular atm, good to here some euphoric!
I haven't R4Red in a long time, so here goes. I haven't heard the original, so I'm going to be reviewing as if this was original
+ Sound design is spectacular!
+ The sounds are mixed pretty nicely and clear
+ Melodically, the piece sounds really nice. Not sure how much creativity you put on the original piece, but the harmonies sound pretty good!
+ Your cat looks gr8 :3
- The song feels like it's forever building towards something but not quite reaching it. You build and build, then fade back down a bit, then build, then fade again, then build some more, then falter a bit more, etc. Your song never feels like it reaches the height it builds towards through all this, either.
- I feel like the vocals could have been mixed more on top of the track rather than being buried, but I guess it's a hardstyle remix so :/
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
