Tony Igy - "Astronomia" (Remix)

Author Comments

Recently, I'd discovered Tony Igy's original "Astronomia" in a music tutorial, and found out that it's been a meme lately (admittedly, not one I'd seen till after I watched that tutorial). So, between my not having done a remix lately, my liking the idea of a meme remix (which is even fewer and far between in my music), and my wanting to experiment with the unique melody of the song, I decided to remix this. Originally, I actually wanted to make a drum & bass remix, but the melody just didn't sound right at that speed. At the same time, it was honestly boring IMO when I set it to tempos more fitting of midtempo, glitch hop or tropical house...but I didn't wanna do progressive house. So, I went with something I haven't done in a while: hardstyle! I actually really like the way this came out, though mixing was a pain (of course it is; y'all know I suck at that, but I'm working on it). Hope you enjoy!

Thank you!

Best remix I could find!

Thank you!

ugh you know where the problem is? the kick pattern!
if you use the "full-beat hardstyle kick" (that's what I usually call them lmao), you don't need the bass anymore, you may add sub-bass though
also, in the drop, the synths are lack of reverb which sounds kind empty
1:16 ok what the heck is that snare/clap, it sounds weird

djn3utral123r responds:

Firstly, thanks for the actually helpful advice regarding the bass. Most feedback I get, in general, isn't particularly helpful.
The lack of reverb...this was one of my bigger pains when mixing this. The original sounds I used had WAY too much reverb, yet I had a hard time getting it to be just right, yet never could, so I felt taking a minimal approach would be better than the original amount of reverb.
The preference of a minimal approach brings irony to the last point, which is that I included those snares in the drop (as I have done in all my hardstyle songs) because honestly, I felt the second part of the drop wasn't different enough without them. This is my one and only complaint about hardstyle as a subgenre: the drops seem repetitive when no new elements are added during the drop. Use DJVI's "Can't Let Go 2.0" for reference...nothing's there at the end of the drop that wasn't there at the start. This is my problem with hardstyle, and so this is how I handle it, even if it's not the best way to do so. :/

Good, but the drop hasn't the escence of the original song. But is really nice

djn3utral123r responds:

Just curious...what makes you say that?

I like the idea, but I think the kick in the drop doesn't sound like a hardstyle kick. Overall, an interesting song :)

djn3utral123r responds:

Hmm...you're the first person I've heard say that, even though I use the same kind of hardstyle kick in all my hardstyle songs. What's different to you about it, if you don't mind telling me?
