Oh man, you did such an awesome job on this!! When I heard the intro, I knew I had found a goody. Happy to find this after giving lengthy reviews to other Big Room tracks that were not good (don't tell anyone). Since you really sound like you know what you're doing, I'm going to give you some complex criticism that kept me from giving you 5/5 stars.

First one's the smallest. Just thought I'd mention that you place bass stabs between the detuned kicks instead of sidechained with the kicks. This, therefore, makes this track "Melbourne," not "Big Room". Like I said, so minor it wouldn't of changed my rating of course. ;)

2nd one's a little nitpicky. This track is super long. 5:32's pretty unusual for a Big Room song. I like the variation of sounds you had altogether but Big Room is a genre that's hard to become professional due to being continually slandered for being "too repetitive". Maybe you should try 2 drops next time instead of 3.

3rd one's pretty major. As we say in the music biz, this track is extremely "muddy" sadly. Rather than having everything in it's proper place doing it's own thing, every sound is getting in the way of each other therefore taking away volume from each other. On the EQ scale, bass takes up a LOT of space, so cutting away unneeded bass is EXTREMELY important!! If you don't, you're going to have times where the overall sound is going to decrease when you add your massive kick when that is the part of the track where you want to really "pop". A very wise producer once told me, "high pass EVERYTHING" and since that day I have never stopped. When you do this, all the excess bass junk you hardly hear on the lead will not diminish the power of the kick and bass. For you, I recommend tighter sidechaining as well. Notice how good the kick sounds on the outro but not the drop you just heard before? This is why. I hope you take heed my advice. ;)

One last thing I'll leave you off with, don't compress the kick so much that it's wide bass will take away volume from the lead. Then the track will go really quiet on the drop! lol!

I hope I didn't seem rude at all. Not my intention at all, just thought I would help you out best I could! The track as a whole is actually extremely catchy and I look forward to hearing your next tracks! :D

Thank you so much for all this feedback!! This is what I crave!! Thank you for taking all the time to write this!! I don't take this as mean at all! Thank you!!

That was fun to listen to. I guess you did the vocals. Can I use this audio for my next cartoon?

ShimaMusic responds:

Oh of course! Go right ahead!! Just credit me please!
