    I think Manuela makes some good points on this one. My suggestion is to take the BPM down 5 to slow it down to a better groove. There is an anxiety about this tune that could be relieved by that. Also some more percussion ideas. like when you drop to the synths only, use a high hat to continue the idea of the rhythm. I would look to some of the techno producers back in 2000 who were played at Tresor. There minimalist style melds with what you are trying to do here. It's very good.

    It must be almost christmas getting these great tips and ideas from you and Manuela. I usually set my BPM around 130 and this one is 135 BPM. I like the jumpiness it creates but i definetly agree that overdoing it turns up he level of anxiety. I will go and try to play with the bpm some to see what fits better. Some extra percusion and hats are always a welcome addition if used well. Because i like how the drums turned out I kept some room for them to run almost solo. But again you are right about keeping the groove. I am very happy with your opinion. Love to learn from people like you!

    Cheers!

    Honestly, I think this is a GREAT! beat! the track has a plethora of intricate sounds and the vox is well placed within the track. What's not to like. TOP WORK!...I hit like yesterday & just had to take another listen/comment. Kudos!

    Hello mudhoen
    Mate, I love the intro wow it is great.
    The whole track for techno I think it needs a bit more volume to keep the listeners moving.
    Nevertheless, it is a hit in my view.
    Well done.

    So, I'll say the basses and drums are good. From the beginning you let a constant chord run in the background, which does not change in pitch. At 1:38 he then disappears for no reason. Why don't you interrupt him already at 0:28, with the big sound and rhythm change? Here you do something new without completely stopping the old. You could then have taken it with you when you returned completely to the initial rhythm. At 1:38 does it disappear again? Then you do a fast break at 1:53 and slowly build up a good staccato. Why not a proper break with full staccato onset? It's not my style of music, but I know that EDM, techno and trance in particular live from recurring musical themes that go hand in hand with high volume and changing rhythms. Sometimes with totally changing speeds. The listener should be whipped up by the music and brought into ecstasy if possible. Rest in between. But he should always find himself in the song. Hence the musical theme that runs through the song. The basses have to pump, the drums have to clap and on top of that the musical effects have to stand out clearly. And very importantly, the topic must be recognizable. But ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: this is only my personal opinion! But you asked me!

    I really think you analyzed exactly and correctly the weak spots on this production. Summing up your remarks i think the biggest problem is the structure of the song and its arrangement. It misses the cohesion(zusammenhang, seeing you being German ;p). Some good points to improve. Thank you for taking your time to check it out again!

    what a great journey, very nice work on the track! I just listen it over my open headphones which only got decent bass, I think there is too much low end inside which make the mix a bit sluggish.greets over the Netherlands

    Thanks a lot for the listen and reply. I tried to boost the bass as good as i could without tresspassing the 0db. Maybe thatswhy it is a bit muddy on the lower side of the frequency.

    Very very good! What stands out is you achieved a big sound under -0db thus not driving things into clipping. I can listen to songs like these all day because you took the time in post-production and in your mix to get things balanced and right while still having a huge sound. Not my particular genre but you made this very easy to listen to and to enjoy. Great job!

    Thanks a lot MrAxel and nice that you noticed that! There is a lot too learn as suggested in the post below, but its always nice to hear some positive feedback. I spent some hours boosting the sound without getting over the top. Starting at -12Db and listening to a mix on low volume really helped me get a few steps ahead. Thanks again and cheers!

    Hello, not bad! However, I think you still have to invest some time in the mastering and the mix. It doesn't sound clean yet. the structure is okay, the effects are also good. But the line isn't quite right yet. But it will be. Greetings Manuela

    Thanks a lot for your honest review, Manuela. Appreciate it. I have been working on my mixing and feel i am on my way but I still need to improve a lot. Can you give an example? Too much compression? The mix too muddy?
