Wow, that's really something! Distorted Horizon does U-Recken :phones:

I mean I already knew that you are good at making psy but that's a next level. These voices and flutes and the vocal synths, really cool! The track as a whole sounds very organic :tu:

Some parts (e.g the triplet part and the latest one) may benefit from some more automation and kick breaks/fills, they sounds a bit too static but that's a minor thing.

What does it say, is it something in Finnish?

Thanks :hug:

To be honest... I have no idea :D Just a vox that I grabbed from a singomakers mantra pack.

Not my usual listening choice this style but I enjoyed it. The production sounds crisp and clear and nice use of the vox samples. Nice one.

I really like it. The only thing I would have done is make the mini-drop at 1.45 hit harder. Psytrance has often more than one "drop" and that spot at 1.45 would've give you the chance to really grab the listener in the beginning. Making that drop bigger there would've also allowed a DJ to use it as an intro track to his set. The one thing I noticed when playing is that the people want a quick bang at the beginning to set the mood. If you start with a track with very little kick, then you need a big buildup and release pretty quick to get them on your side. Now if you start the set with a massive hard kick, then you achieved that "release" right away.

Thanks everyone!

JoaquinAce thanks for pointing that out.. Guess I should give some focus on the DJ side of things :P

Just as a notice, the entire song was made with Reason (Europa, Subtractor, Malstrom), and only thing coming outside of it was that electric guitar I played at the last section.

I always try to keep the DJ's in mind in my productions, mixable in the beginning and end, mixable at certain points etc. They are a valuable source of publicity for your track and in my case, sales. So a small change like that in your track can take it from a 9 to a 9.98 BANGER :). I really like your style. I wouldn't mind putting our heads together to see if we can make a psy-influenced hard trance track. So not hard psytrance, but psy-hardtrance.

Great stuff, loving the bouncy bit with the gated vocals. Sounds like the Theme of the Mushroom King or something.

Dope, but I hear some sever EQ problems - especially just at the beginning. Way too much mud in low mids. Also, lead at 6:30 is too resonant.

Might have something to with that I didn't EQ the intro at all :P I did at first but it sounded so.... Empty somehow that I decided rather to have some messyness.

Lead is electric guitar ran through alligator (gater RE). I tried a softer tone from the amp but it became so boring that..
