your track is rather nice - has a bit of an anjunadeep feel to it. It's going to be a serious job to bring it up to the volume level that seems to be required today and to keep the dynamics and space in the mix. the bass is strong and well balanced and moves you nicely when you turn it up.

well chosen synth sounds add to the texture nicely.

the big issue, and it's something fixable but IMHO opinion: is the groove - which is ever so close to being right - and works when it's stripped down at 4:00-4:25 or so but losses it's grove somehow when the bass comes back in, maybe it's the quantised hats, but the groove is a little off and it kills tracks like these that rely on the groove being a consistent thing throughout. minor tweaks to the perc and bass timing are what is required, but I've found it takes f'ing ages!

good luck - nice track.

cheers for the comments matey - I'm putting together a remix pack for first class, so might have to try your structural advice!

you track has a good energy to it, the basses are working well, I might add a tyas style offbeat sub to keep the energy from the kick going.

hard to tell as it's such a short clip and stops just when I wanted it to evolve! - ping me when you add more

The track sounds great and the mixing is fine but there is something about the piano I'm not feeling? Also I'm not so sure on the arrangement. 3min mark should be your intro. From the break down you have, you expect more when it kicks in at 3 mins and that bassline just isn't enough imo. I would re arrange it from the 3min mark and take what you have to the break if you get me?

the progression is nice on this, uplifting feel but im not sure if the bassline fits with it?

optik - First Class. Probably late to the party, as you said it's the final release. Essentially first minute and a half needs another lead on top of your arp-lead-whatever. Or some other musical content, vocals, whatever. Otherwise just boring. Good mix. Would personally layer piano with a synth lead and fade out at some point, sounds too wimpy on its own imo for aggressive track like this.


Here's the track I've been writing. Personally think it's fucking fantastic but judging own stuff objectively is impossible. Come on, tear it a new arsehole



Lovely track - personal preference for me would be a more sustained type of bassline rather than the individual notes that you currently have, something similar to what optik was saying that it doesnt groove that well for me, my 2c

loving this - delicious feel to it. breakdown would kill a dancefloor but I love it for radio etc. I'd cut it right down and get back to that beat right away.

I'm sitting in the palms in ibiza at 7am on monday morning.

very nice - how are you doing your percs?

Its sounds fine, well balanced and nice groove. Vocals sit very nicely... On saying that would like to hear another take though with more mids to give a definitive answer.

@evo8: Agreeing with this. Great snippet you have there.

@optik: The theme doesn't really work for me. It feels too generic. The mixdown needs a lot of attention. The kick feels way too oldschool for the rest, I miss a lot of separation between sounds in the high end, it's one big mush.

thanks, i might do another version with more mids but maybe im at risk of tinkering too much

re your track, not the pattern per se, just the notes...the bassline to me sounds dark whereas the pluck part isnt, not sure if you would agree with that but thats whats not sitting right with me!
