Found this on my hard drive. I have no recollection whatsoever of doing this. The file date is 2018. :shrug:
This is a less-hot version:

It's trance, ennit guv.
Yes, it is loud-ish. I think I may have been experimenting. Just a senior moment.

I can hear a lot of clipping distortion on this throughout most of the track. It's more readily apparent on the SoundCloud upload, but is also present on the Video, slightly less noticeable. You may want to check the max. levels on the audio uploaded, to make sure that the peaks are below -1dB, but I suspect that those compressors may need taming :)

I think if you sort out the distortion, you could have a real banger on your hands.

Good work :)

Hey, thanks for listening!

Mea culpa! I was lazy. I didn't check anything, just uploaded it. </hangs-head-in-shame> :D
I've uploaded a "remix" - with the input to 2 of the limiters( :scared: ) reduced by 2 dB each, and the stereo output by 2dB.
I also shortened the attack on the kicks, making them a bit more defined.

By the by, if you were to see my "monitoring" setup you'd laugh your head off!
