This is a nearly complete "preview" of "Hide no more". I still need to re-record the vocals and tweak a few other things. I just couldn't wait no more...too excited to share :D

The instruments at the beginning - from the synth bass to the phasing synths - seemed a little cliche. The piece is also pretty slow to progress, but I did like the pizzicato-y riff that comes in at :16. The kick at :47 helps to give the piece more drive and intensity, but the progression is still VERY gradual. I would’ve liked to see some more melodic content earlier in the piece. The transition at 2:07 was a bit awkward, and took the piece in a very different direction very suddenly. I like the vocals - they sound very upbeat and sit well in the mix. I think you could really cut the first 2 minutes of the piece down, though. Also, the piece doesn’t have a lot of structural variety or shape, and adding some more dynamics and phrasing could really help with that. My favorite element of the piece was actually the mixing - it’s pretty clean and clear, and the texture is full and rich throughout. My one complaint there is that the pizzicato-y synth melody gets a little lost at around 2:45. Overall, it’s a pretty cool piece. My biggest problems are the cliche instruments and the pacing issues during the first half. Keep at it, man. ;)

Thank you for that review! The latest version (just uploaded now, don't forget to clear your cache to listen to it) should hopefully take care of most of your observations.

Very enjoyable jam track, one thing, high tone percussion seemed to stick out a tad bit too much, it doesnt make anything bad thugh. But if it helps, i like to think of a sound pyramid, starting with bass and building into the treble, as width is to dynamics, highs are more noticable than lows so lows need to be louder and highs softer etc. Not sure if you have heard that analogie but yeah. No hard feelings. I like it, best of luck

Thank you Colin! I will keep an ear on that the next time I review the track. I'm holding off until I get word from NGADM that it's ok to apply modifications to tracks submitted to the qualifications round. All suggestions are welcome though. I will just keep collecting them until then and then apply them all in one shot.

It's good man. Great club feels. I wanna be humpin somebody right now!

Mauxus responds:

Thanks! Yeah, that's how much I miss it (the club, dirty minds...the club) :D
