This is a WIP out of a group of songs I'm putting together for an album.
Mainly looking for some feedback on the song to see what can be improved.

Made in Pro Tools, using sounds from Massive and Kontakt.

Okay time for R4R my buddy friend.

-That melody is just catchy and awesome, groovy stuff is happening
-Stylish intro that makes me picture a bar with a bunch of aliens and cyborgs.
-Variety, it kept me wondering what was coming next, which is great because I dislike repetitive stuff.

Not likey:
The kick and drums seemed a little timid you know, I think you could boost that a little more, specially the kick.

Still, this is a great track and I would recommend it.

Jazzy, but sounds a bit like canned presets. I feel like you could have taken us a bit higher, considering the great tools you have to work with. The drums are laying down in the mix. However, for a WIP, this is pretty great.

That trumpety/boney synth just kills me. You could really bring it here with something less obviously synthy. Anyone who has ever played an actual trumpet or bone will cringe upon hearing this. Either it needs more velocity and modulation, or it must go. Who knows, maybe even grab a live bone player off of here. There are more of them than you think, and that's a simple line!

What I will praise is the composition. It's compact, together, and varied enough that I'm not bored. Good work!

What a jazzy beat! Loving this!
I think this is great, I think there were a few small quirks that kept it from being flawless (in theory).
The variety of this song was fantastic. I loved every second of it, whatever album you're doing you've already pulled me in. The melody was fantastic and really got me grooving. For me personally that is what makes or breaks a song is if the melody is good. (Which here it's freakin fantastic). My problems were primarily in the mastering/mixing compartment. I thought high ends were good in my opinion. What really got me was that the drums were a little quiet during the drop but other than that.
-Great freakin melody
-Great variety and sound
-Small mixing/mastering quirks keep this from being tenouttaten
I'm very interested in what is to come! In the meantime, take my follow. You deserve it.

Thanks for the feecback!
This project is a ways out still, but I would suggest keeping up on YouTube and stuff if you want to hear more!

The high end was too loud.
The fast bass arp thing got annoying real fast.
The melodys were cool and jazzy.
The Kick was way too quiet during the drop.
both of the drums were too quiet.

A cool beat and melody but it has a lot of mixing problems.

If you manage to fix all of these problems this would be a cool ass song. :3
