Its OK, decent beat. I think it needs mixing and mastering. Perhaps some saturation on certain elements to make them pop an be more vibrant, and a touch of Maximizing too.

Just wanted you to know that I did give it a listen but I'm really not the target audience for this stuff. It's too repetitive for me. And in this case, way too long with so little variation. Mix was decent enough. And I know there's an audience for this genre. I'm just not it.

I quite like the idea, but seems like you rushed it a little, arrangement sounds like it's done real time in one go launching clips in Live/Bitwig, there's not much automation's, movement, tension and etc, all in all, it sounds like an demo that got massive potential if it's done better, take your time with it.

Love your Elevate track, this one quite works as it is, but from track to track I notice the same pattern, there's not much clever automation of elements and absence of fx elements that give that rush and tension, which is the key in repetitive music, listen carefully to Pryda for example, he manages to stretch 6 seconds worth of an idea into interesting 7-8 minutes using clever arrangements, fx and automation, teasing, playing with tension and release, crowd just go bonkers from all of it.

Thanks Passing Bye for the feedback. I think you've hit the nail on the head. I find a lot of the time I get bored with a track and then rush to finish it so I can start a new one. Thank you also for the kind words on my Elevate track.

It's maybe not a bad thing to get track in that state quickly, better than getting stuck all the time on the way, but maybe try to revisit those tracks again and put more time into making them better with fresh ears, Elevate is gold for example, it would work wonders on floor, it got that Oxia Domino vibe that just works so good, but observe that track, he got only that going for it and made a track out of it, you have so many different and interesting things happening there, it just needs more tension and release to be proper dancefloor banger.

Thanks for the tips and the words of encouragement Passing Bye. I love that Oxia track, that is exactly what I'm trying to achieve. I shall take your advice and revisit the track with a fresh pair of ears in a month or two.
