well that track just has 100% more personality to it than op imo. its the sounds/samples/sound-design thats really original. so for me it doesnt always has to be a 11 min "journey" track with lots of complex rhytmic shifts/builds/debuilds/layering/extra melodic lines etc. If a track has a really strong set of sound charachterstics its often more than enough to make it a good track.I disagree with most of what's been said here.
For me this is very nice track, it builds and progresses nicely throughout.
Lovely sound design as well.
Sure maybe the "journey" could've been better, but it's not like old Prog producers always overcomplicated/overstuffed their productions either.
If there's anything I would want to see more of Nu-Trance artists making this particular style, is that they'd make more straight-up dark progressive, as most of the tracks in this style for me sound "upbeat"
I would like to see some tracks like this:
Overall though it's a solid effort.
actually this track didn't take more than a day or two to do. it was always meant to be a sleeper track, one that just goes under the radar and keep the groove locked. hence the song name. the working title was "tool for when you really need a piss break and freak out because you don't know what to play next so you can put this on and go the bar to get a drink too and have a smoke cheers"
