A really fast-paced techno track that I found when recovering files dating back to 2007 on my old hard drive. Nah, just kidding. I wish it was true though. I tried to make the worst track possible and it actually didn't sound that bad in the end, so I decided to extend it and here's what came out of it. Enjoy!

Sounds to me like you were going for a Happy-Hardcore styled song. It's really catchy, and I like how you incorporated the drum loops and glitching effects. That middle section was probably my favorite, but overall, I feel this is a pretty solid track. Perhaps only a slightly lower BPM would have made this a little easier to follow, because there is a lot going on.

One thing to look for is volume levels of everything. Everything sounds like it's on top of each other, and they are all fighting each other to be hear over the others. Just play around with sound levels and panning (very minimal panning) to try and give each sound its own "place" in everything. Keep it up though, this was great!

Thanks! I wasn't really thinking of Happy Hardcore when making this song, I was rather going for the Dimrain47/NightHawk22 style but you could technically tell this is Happy Hardcore. I love putting drum loops and glitch effects over pretty much everything as long as it sounds good! I'm glad you liked that little drum'n'bass section, I spent some time figuring out how to make a nice drum loop out of those free samples. Maybe it's just me but I personally don't think it deserves a slower pace, I already got used to listening to tracks as fast as this one, although I probably wouldn't mind going somewhere between 170 and 190bpm.
Mixing and mastering is sadly something I still struggle with the most. It could be because of what I'm using to produce my tracks - a pair of headphones. My speakers wouldn't be really good either, I barely even use them. For now it's just the Ozone limiter that makes my songs sound less miserable when it comes to mastering. Thank you again for the review!

Thanks for the review but I'd like to clear things up - although I can admit that I haven't learned how to make rather modern and better sounding music yet, I still cannot understand why you brought up a House track as an example to compare with my song. I've listened to it and it's nowhere near to what I make. Keep in mind EDM doesn't consist of House and its subgenres only.
Regards,
