Love the thick texture at the beginning and the crisp beats at :17. It's a little slow to develop, but I appreciated the change in energy levels at about :45. Really clean mix here. The busy synth riff that comes in at around the 1-minute mark is a nice touch too. I really like the gradual build into 1:48. I can tell where the breaks between the songs are, but overall this mix is pretty flowing and well-connected, which I appreciate. I especially like the sound design on the drum samples and rhythmic details around 3:15. The atmosphere in all of these tracks is amazing, btw. I've known you're an atmosphere wiz ever since "Scazon," but this is top-tier stuff. You also bring in the minimalist club stuff in due time, like at 4:30. Bass is rockin' at 4:45, and I love the pulsing vibe at 5:40. All in all, sounds like an amazing album with quite a diversity of sound, even if it hardly strays from your distinct style.

Where are you releasing the album? Bandcamp? I'll certainly check out the final product. Keep up the great work, man. ;)

Thanks dude! I wanted to do something that Sorrow did with his "The Twelve" EP Preview mix (it's about 4 mins long). I thought that was a pretty cool way to show off an album rather than playing with faders like in my old ENSC preview mix. I think I did pretty bad with this "mix" lmao, I was just using FL 20's new arrangement feature where I can rearrange the tracks in the same project file. I was just EQing some of the tracks to make the tracks sound like each other. The tracks here were just rearranged for this preview mix and won't sound like this in the final product. And yea, it'll be on Bandcamp.

I do have a taste for higher quality production (ironic because of my trash music back then); I have a bunch of other projects for this album or in general that was rejected just because they weren't up to standard. I always try to practice new things and try to get my mixing and mastering skills to pro standard. Though, I barely had time to do any of that; I'm always so busy with work and school.
