This is probably how I want to start producing house from now on, even though learning to mix in Next is quite the pain. I just hope I managed to do a decent job on this one.

Hope y'all enjoy

Like that bass going on here. I'm not sure what's happening with that stabbing synth -- I could probably do without it. Your lead sounds good on its own and doesn't need a plucky stab to ring announce for it.

0:46 section was a bit flat with those naked, dry synths. 1:05 mix is a little muddy on that sub, and we seem to be going from buildup to build up there which is a no-no. If you wanted to use that sub riser, don't have it sit there and just stop! I was getting excited, lol.

Other than that, structuring on this was pretty alright, other than some other reappearances of the sub bass riser which got really muddy and clashed with your bass. I'm not sure what was happening there.

There are some really nice melodies going in here, with a lot of potential. Structure is kind of inhibiting you here, though. I recommend looking up some tutorials on the subject. This could have been a real banger!

Mixing and mastering aren't really my strong suits. I'll do what I can to improve as much as possible :)

The first half of this was pretty blah, but in the section at 1:30 you started layering the different parts and I found that quite nice to listen to. All in all pleasant to listen to, but I would have liked a bit more anticipation/buildup.

RobinvanDommelen responds:

I'll make sure to look into that :)
