Track made in 3 days - just to prove myself.
It was all improvised. I have no deep knowledge or expectations for psytrance, so just let it flow. Note that I'm into uplifting trance, so the track hits like a truck and may be out of style.

Used pretty much all my synths. First time added some granular pads and effects to the mix.

this was an enjoyable listen

good driving beat with some nice breaks

i'd have pitched the bass drum a little lower to give it more
bottom end, but thats just personal taste...ymmv, good track :tu:

Great groove. :tu:

I agree with Layzer. The kick is pitched high like an electro tom.

The track is too long for my tastes. 4 minutes is enough for me. For some reason, trance is always 8+ minutes even if nothing new happens.

Trance is club music to be played in a mix. In reality the track gets about 5 minutes of air time.

Thanks for suggestions about the kick, I wouldn't think it should be changed.
