First Progressive House song. This also marks the first time I've ever used Serum (great synth, and very affordable on splice). I will release it on SoundCloud in a couple of days. Let me know what you liked and what you didn't (but don't be rude). Hopefully I'll upload regularly again. Anyways, thanks for listening!

This is really nice! I like the side chaining you've done in certain spots, as it really does add to the value of the song entirely. However, I feel like that first drop could've used a bit more strength. That can easily be achieved with a kick drum, even if you don't make it very loud. There's a bit of repetition in it, but I'm not very well educated in this genre, so I don't know how expected it is for melodic variation. The chords all blend together well, and the progression is nice, especially for the kind of song you were going for. It uses the same hi-hat or cymbal throughout the whole thing, and I feel it would be a good idea to experiment and try using different hi-hats. The same structure is carried out through the song, and while that's a good thing in terms of consistency, it's okay to deviate from it a little bit, and I know Progressive House is a weird genre for that, but it's worth trying.
Overall, this is great evidence that you're definitely becoming proficient at creating music, and the blending of the sounds fits incredibly well. I'm especially impressed by the percussion things you did before the drops, as it's a major improvement from the percussion in our collaboration. You're definitely on the right track. The only thing I suggest is changing it up a little bit. If you can do that effectively, you've got yourself a masterpiece! :)

(Also, this is not meant to be a mean or harsh review; only a sidenote to let you know where you stand, in my opinion, on the path to success. Improvement is a step away, and whether it's a leap of faith or a baby step, it's worth it in the long run! :) )

Thanks for reviewing! I do think that this is a bit repetitive; because I wanted this first try to be more simple so I could grasp exactly what I was trying to do. Made it easier imo. I will do more variation in future releases. The repetition was somewhat intended because I find it hard to make this genre while changing up the melodies often. As far as the kick goes, I did have a kick in there, but it may be hard to hear without headphones (assuming you aren't using them). If you are, then I find that somewhat odd because I could hear the kick just fine. By the way, the percussion stuff before the drops were pretty much layering clap fill samples and adding in some toms by me XP. Kind of lazy, but it sounded good and I can't really 100% make my own fills sound good yet. Plus, I'm not sure what kind of fill could work in our song (which I'd like some input on tomorrow). Anyways, thanks for the review! And I look forward to our collab releasing soon(er than later)!

Thanks so much! I'll keep in mind everything you said for next time (probably SoundCloud release too). Anyways, thanks again; I do appreciate my reviewers because that's an easy way to get better.
