Hi Guys,

I have this idea, what do you think of it? Its still very RAW And experimental, so it may sound unbalanced And harsh.

Also what could i improve in musical aspect ?

In terms of idea I think the melody is pretty catchy, although maybe a little repetitive. I don't think i'd let it finish on the bottom note so often, just to keep things interesting. I thought the choir fitted in well. Enjoyed the break with the epic drums, that would sound awesome in a club.

Like you say it's still raw but it definitely needs to be mixed properly. The kick/snare are currently being overpowered by the synths. The lead sounds a bit too shrill to me, I think over the course of a track it would be too fatiguing. With some tweaks and a decent mix I'd say you'll have a pretty good EDM track.

Tiesto would say the mix needs more punch... cool riser, but i knew
where it was headed, perhaps maybe peak with a big loud rubber duck squeak next time?

Thx man. Yeah haha i know i need to mix a lot, that Will come later. Im trying a new way of producing to let my mind go wild, And then the mixing Will come later haha.
Also i Will try to let the down note come in sometimes, not so often.
Do you have any tips on making it not so repetitive? Thats one of the points i need Some work on ^^

its too over used and predictable... a a rubber duck squeak
at the apex would give the listener a huge jolt of Adrenalin. :idea:
