I will give you my opinion on this track but it is strictly my personal view/perspective on it.

There is two important parts of this track: one -> is from the beginning till around 1:50 and the second one -> is from about 3:00 min mark till around 3:56 which if I where you I would structure your whole track around - those to parts (and particularly the second one) have really cool drive and energy which if you find the way to extrapolate into longer part and blend it with some sweet and emotional break then you might/could have a winner

Just my 0.02$ - Darek

Maybe I just need to play around with it until it clicks. All the fundamental elements are already there.


It is not going to be easy task as you need to be ably to feel and strive on the emotional part of this WIP - dynamics and depth of your sounds will play extremely important part of this track development.

But, knowing you - "CAN BE DONE"


Cheers,

Darek

After a long time out of the game, I'm trying to take it up again. This is a remix of Cryophonik's old track from way back.

As you said that you like to turn those clikety-clak HI freqs, i cant help but feel that the mid area is still kinda odd. I mean like its squished and has mud. What do you have on your master buffer?

The vocals are nice, but they seem to be at the same range as some elements like the piano, like 0:44. Few touches to them should fix it.

Your beats and perc work is still solid!

The clap isn't working at all. Also at 4:20 so on, the vocals can barely be heared when the tube-like lead plays. Kicks envelope also is kinda lost as it feels really weak.

Sructure is okay for the most part.

I can't really comment on the track because it's not in a style I really enjoy so I don't think I could be useful. Production seems tight though--and I looooooooove the vocal. Overprocessed for my taste but I like it a lot.

- the clap or snare is distorted in a way that just doesn't work with the rest of the track. try softening it out a bit--it punches too much through the mix for me. After the breakdown it's much better.

- I like that pad/synth sound that shows up around 0:50. Sounds very smooth, for lack of a better term. Probably something I'd fix on if I were hearing it on a dancefloor.

- the off-8 blip at the beginning is just distracting, doesn't feel like it's sitting in the mix

- the vocals also don't feel like they're sitting in the mix--too front and centre. It's a little bit better when the vocal first enters during the breakdown

- I like the breakbeat in the breakdown, though there's some weird stuttering? I'd turn the whole phrase with the kick-snare-kick-snare into a breakbeat

Other than that this feels like it's got some great pieces, but it doesn't feel like it goes much of anywhere. There's no real energy buildup or release, not even just sort of a relentless/driving/hypnotic feel to fit in a set somewhere. I'd like to feel more of a splash when the vocals kick in, you know? Don't get me wrong, I don't think this is terrible; as said above the basic structure is there, just needs some shaping.

Anyone care to have a go at this WIP? I'm mainly at the stage where I'm endlessly fussing with tiny things so I can avoid doing a final mixdown. I'm aware some of the EQ needs work--waiting for some time with a friend's good monitors. Thoughts, anyone? Don't hold back.

Firstly thanks for listening to mine - I have been toying with the idea of layering them with a less processed background choir vocal but I'm in 2 minds about it. I think hatz are a bit loud now (too quiet before)?

YOUR TRACK - what a nice opening you have here, it's sound nicely mixed and I dig the slightly retro sound choices a lot.
I'll be honest it's a great foundation for a track but I don't like where it goes after the minute or so intro, that guitar type sound for me is far too repetitive and the choir pad is too basic and obvious, I wanted you to continue with the dancey feel, I was expecting interestingly timed stab type sounds to be the main parts, not this choir and guitar, but as ever this is only a taste judgement, others may think differently.

Good work though.

Cool vibe you've got going on here! Be sure to EQ/sidechain the piano out a bit more when the vocals are in. They seem to be fighting for the same bit of space. Really can't think of anything else to say .

I didn't know what to say as I am so out of touch with acid style. I loved some Billy Nasty from back in the day and of course the opening tune from Blade1. I took a listen again to yours just now, sound ok but not really grabbing the attention.

I always feels these acid tracks get ruined when the 303 filters are opened and the resonance pierces the skull. Would pref a much more closed 303 sound all the way through.

Shanks mang! Funny how it turned out to sound like a choir... that's four or five different pad sounds layered and filtered together, ha.

I'm going to fiddle around with some stabby stab stab sounds and see what happens. The retro thing is basically because I'm old.
