Very floaty, up there in the stars type vibes.

The intro and drops are very chilled and sweet. The transition between the two wasnt quite right. Not sure why but it caught me off. Maybe have a slight more emphasis on the build into it? I think it's your transition from high pass to regular on the reverb of the vocals thats throwing it off a bit. Rather than a smooth shift, its immediate which gives a clipped feel. Not sure if your playing with the stereo imaging too right before the drop, but the drop needs smoothing out. Let the bass and other elements take up the bottom end and keep your high passed on then gently fade it lower and out.

Otherwise a great track dude.

Well done!

yea, I need to work on my transitions, thanks for the tips again :)

Another great one from the 5TL!!! I"m liking this. It's nice and slow for a D&B song but this has such a good effect on the song. It does sound studio grade and it appeals to my personal liking. I just wish there was a little more atmosphere in the background like some arps or maybe. Another things is the vocals. I didn't mind the vocals but I wish that there was some brief pausing to allow the melody to play without the vocals partially overriding the melody. Overall its still a great song and I'm loving it.

better than anything I have ever made.

It sounds professional. Studio quality. A bit too much in vocals at 2:40 but other than that really really good.

A tip I can share for making music is that the longer you can listen to something you made (on repeat) without it starting to sound like gibberish, the better it is, and this song is great on repeat for a long time.

5TanLey responds:

feel like this is still far from professional sound but thanks :)

yeah I think I'm slowly starting to like what I make, as opposed to my first year of producing, at least

Chill stuff, I dig :) I would prefer if it had a pad (and maybe some arps :o) going on at some points to introduce a bit more depth and atmosphere, maybe during the second drop to build variety and evolution. But then again I put pads (and arps) everywhere :p

Not much else to say here, Mix is loud and clear, and melodies are nice. Makes me think of driving on a highway away from city lights, at midnight night of course :)

Keep up the good work m8 ^^! Shame that you didn't pass to the knockouts :(

5TanLey responds:

thanks m8,

about knockouts, in All stars category the competition was just too strong, so much of good music there :)
