One of my old experiments. Wanted to make extremely dark dark in a tribute to some classic trance hits. Too bad it's weirdo normal labels won't release today.

I like it. Clean and tight production, good sound-design. The overall vibe is indeed quite dark and expressive.

TBH, I'd rather listen to this than to what "normal" trance labels release today.

It's fine, it's a little weird but as an idea it's not bad, greetings!

If by experiments you mean some of those very lusciously disturbing sounds, the experiment was a success. You've got a whole load of great sounds.

But "experiment" also suggests you might think this isn't quite a finished/proper track? Maybe I'm reading too much into that, but I would have though if you felt the track was the finished product, you might have said "this is an old tune of mine" or something.

I think it sounds great, but that at times it's just a little bit lacking in cohesion - presumably because you are experimenting and there's quite a bit of variation across the track. I guess it's just very slightly lacking that "one never ending trip" feeling of trance as a result.

I suspect you could tweak a few things and tighten the progression with minimal effort if you wanted to.

Anyway, I enjoyed all 9 minutes and listened to a few sections more than once.

Thank you for your feedback, guys?

Well, I tried to do stuff like this for the first time and it's not copy-paste of any regular piece. The style is odd on purpose.
Plus, you're right about "lack of cohesion" - I would do it differently today, by then I just slapped ideas on the arrangement as they came to my mind.

Sounds good, is very psytrance in style which I like. Also has very good production quality.

Cool trance track, rather typical for that genre but enjoyable. Nice work.

Sort of the impression I was getting. We live and learn :) Still a nice track though.
