Thanks <33

Having made some prog house tracks myself, figured I might as well throw in my own two cents. So, here's my thoughts.

For starters, and I'll just get this out of the way first and then talk about the track, I would say this is prog house. This sounds like something out of 2013 prog house music. That being said, the term 'progressive' when applied to music is a very loosely defined term. It's hard to find a definitive definition for what the style is, since it's constantly changing. I'd say myself, this is prog, but someone else may not, someone more in tune with what the genre is. It's hard to define prog when you don't even make it yourself, so those who do produce it are more likely to have a better definition for what prog is.

Anyway, enough about that, the song sounds great. It's got really nice sounds, nice supersaws, in certain sections it sounds like the Avicii dance keys preset was being used which... I love. Layered properly it sounds amazing, and you layered it brilliantly. It's nice and bright, lots of high end, which is something you generally want in this kind of music. Of course, too much is ear piercing, so careful with how much high end you add.

If there's one piece of criticism I can give, the kick sounded kind of weak. Maybe it's just me having designed kicks in different ways, but I think the kick needed more punch by raising some lows around 150, and counteract that with a high mid boost, like 2-4kHz. Again, maybe it's just me, but the kick feel like it has enough of an impact. The Snare and all other effects sounded fine. I think that piano in the intro sounds like a bit of a mess. The notes you put in may sound better if they were raised by an octave, but at such a low register, they clash too much, and makes it weird to listen to.

Aside from all that, I really enjoyed this piece. From what I can see, this isn't a normal style for you to produce in. And I'm basing that entirely on the fact that in your audio list, this is the first house track you've made. So, for a first time (I think) this is a great piece. 4/5 when considering the criticism I gave. I really enjoyed it! :)

Take care!

TYSM for the constructive feedback!

Yes, this is my first progressive house track. Fooled around with all the plugins used in progressive house tracks, and I got this, and it ended up sounding pretty good! :)


I don't think this is progressive house at all.
