You should send this to some publisher for films as this is very emotional and thunderous - maybe clean it up a bit but don't loose the angst I can hear through this. Get through your shit mate and always learn something from it, makes you better the more self aware one is

Yeah sounds really good, there is feeling in it that i can hear, thats almost always my approach to making a track of progressive kind of style, try and get some emotion in there so that it evokes an emotional response (not sure if that reads properly)

Here's an EDM style track - could you tell me if it would be better with more vocals?

Are the 2 rises out of the breaks good enough?

Ok..This track is really vibey. I am so digging this. But there is something out of place, I can't put my finger on it. But I am thinking it's the kick. I'd really like to see that with a flatter response on the kick to meld with that bass. It's to good.
Your questions....

Personally?! I don't think you need the vox at all. I think the track stands well without it. Just my two cents.

The risers (and that snare roll? lol I don't think you need it either..lol.
It almost makes it feel like it takes away from your groove and slows it down momentarily to get back into that groove.
I'd let it ride.

Such a great potential track here Richard. And the amazing thing is I don't think you need to add at all but rather subtract.

Try to do more variety then you can go back to the sounds you like and have a different perspective because I see you are using similar sounds in the tracks you post. You're good at writing tracks, you should try other areas - my 2cents.


No, it would not be That's what this discussion is all about. I'm too subjective on my own stuff. Yeah, i'll definetely try to play more with different sounds. Thanks for advices, and i hope your'e dealing ok with your situation.

I like the vibe and how it sounds - until 1:00 mark... I would base song on sound in that part + some good bassline or strings that would change key or something. It goes too much pop, and stabby open synth later for me. And structure is confusing, you've added too much stuff, still have no contrast, so it get's repetitive fast, imo.

Rich im not an EDM fan but this sounds good, i clicked play and instantly thought "EDM", thats before i read the comment

i think that you are almost changing the structure too much, you need to let some bits just loop a bit more, absolutely no harm in that, otherwise people just cant get into the groove as it keeps changing

e.g 4:13 onwards, i feel you could loop those first 2 bars again - then maybe throw in your change in the next loop around? but i understand if thats the style you intend!
vox - i dont think this needs any, better without imo
break at 2 mins, thats too long imo for that point in the track

leading into the main break you could send some of the main synth to a big delay, let that wash out whilst bringing the main synth back up
also not sure the pre-drop works the best (snares) - id try a synth stutter, like playing your main synth loop whilst progressively shortening the loop points (old djm600 trick)

sorry, i wrote too much. your kicks have good depth now (finally )

LOL Now he is really going to be confused. I just replied about his kick. But, you would know Evo for sure.
To me , it sounds like it is out of key. It is very prominent without a doubt. Or perhaps it needs to be dropped an octave
As well, dig the idea of bussing main synths to a delay. Not quite there yet in production,yet very curious and might play around with that.

I don't feel like creating a new thread, so I'll just ask here:

Don't suppose anyone would be in need of a remix? I'm kinda hitting a brick wall creatively and remixing something could get the juices flowing again.

I do all sorts of prog, but I'm pretty flexible stylewise.

Guys I read your feedback the other day and am working my way through it

As ever my kick here is attempt number 7 or something so it would be quite disheartening to do it again, lol

That thing where Deadmaus said just slap on any old kick quickly has never worked for me I'm afraid
