Okay, way too loud. That initial intro synth, whatever it is, probably needs some massive EQ on the high end. Musically, it's okay. But sheesh, are we still fighting the loudness wars?

Good job. Reminds me of Zomby a little. No loudness issue imho.

I really enjoyed it...shades of NIИ at times in there.

Wags is right about that opening synth, it's not so much too loud as it has way too much content in the 3 -6 kHz range where the human ear is very sensitive...needs EQing.

It's definitely overly compressed to my ear - very little dynamic range in there at all and I'm no stranger to heavy /loud listens...I have Devil Driver on in the background at the moment!

Would've loved some lead vocals!

Thx for listenning and tells your advice :tu:
I have notice a problem with the 'noise opening synth' during the first 3 mix and i tought the problem was fixed with the 4 mix.
I try to have an heavy compression and a song song very loud , it seems i just done it. ;)
It is an old song and i was pretty happy with the work so i will not remix it , i spent too much time to finalize old song and I have a lot of new songs wich are different.
I think my work is done with old songs , i have deeply evoluate since this one and i wanted to achieve this one to close this part of my life.
I just want to move on and i will do it ;)
thx a lot ;) :tu:

edit : of course NIИ is in the place ;) and i was not and i am not hypochondriac ;)

I don't mind the opening sound. Seems like a worthy 'statement of intent'. And I do like the beats a lot.

My biggest issue is that it feels like it's missing a thread of continuity, by which I mean it lacks some kind of 'bed' or foundation upon which you can build these parts. At the moment you bring in one part, then that part cuts completely, and another is introduced. This process then repeats throughout the track. There is no overlap, no layering, no building etc. and it loses cohesion. Moreover, having some kind of foundation/underscore would probably make each part easier to mix, which would avoid the big differences in volumes of the different parts.

What this needs is some musical glue :tu:

sure ! :)
the lack of foundation is something i wanted to "give" , a part lives , a part dies and then it is the same again and again ...
Thx for listenning and review ;)
