I've been trying to make this track work for ages.. should I just bin it?
it's one of those ones - I think I like it, I think I like the melody, and whenever I listen to it after leaving it for a while, i think I should fix it up and get it out there - but I might just be deluding myself.
It's trance - 135bpm
what do you guys think/
anything that might fix it? or is it objectively decent/shit?
This is fantastic. I have no idea if it was on purpose, but all the way up until the big build back into the track (4:15), all the different little melodic bits sounded very slightly off. Partly it was rhythm, partly it was tonality, but something wasn't quite meshing.
But then 4:15 hits and suddenly everything resolves beautifully. Definitely adds to the euphoric nature of the track--don't change anything about the melodic structure at all. It works perfectly.
The only strutural nitpick I have is at 1:11--you need a little bit more of a transition there, I think. Feels too abrupt and unexpected.
Other people can comment on mixing, not my forte. Excellent, excellent track.
