Who said Big Room couldn't be melodic and is not repetitive? ^^ I prove you the opposite with this song! I hope you'll enjoy!

I like the punchy synths at the beginning and the rhythmic content. The drums are very loud, perhaps to the point of being over-compressed, but I like how you vary the texture with the emotional piano solo at :32. The synths at 1:07 sound a tad over-saturated in the mix, clearly dominant of the claps at 1:23, and I also think the progression of the piece is a bit too slow-paced. The drop at 1:53 is nice, although it doesn’t feel like the harmonic content that came before it is part of the same story. The structure of the piece is a bit disjointed, and the spacey atmosphere, minimal texture, and vocal samples at 2:26 reinforce that idea. You begin to overuse the transitions with the sweeps after a while, and the reverb in the texture - especially on the vocal samples at the 3-minute mark - is pretty excessive. The mix is clearly distorted by the reverb at 3:24, in another example. The riffs here are catchy, and each isolated section of the piece sounds good, but the similarity of the drops is certainly a necessary element to give the piece a sense of cohesion. I’ve been enjoying the sound design, production quality, and rhythmic content of this piece, but the arrangement could use some more fluidity and the mix could be a bit more well-balanced here. Keep at it, Gamerthofr26! :)

спасибо ;) (thx gg trans ^^)

Big room has always been a problem for me, but you definitely have thrown a LOT of originality into this song. You should definitely be very proud for making a song in a genre that has such a reputation for being bland and repetitive which is so enjoyable to listen to. Only thing I would like to point out is that I feel the kick isn't punchy enough - at times it feels like it's changing pitch and consequently losing a lot of snap in the attack.

gamerthoFR26 responds:

Yup it's totally true concerning the kick I think I could do better too. Anyways thank you for your feedback! :)
