Usually like Activa, for the clean and crisp production, this time it feels a little empty, especially in the second part

The really polished/clean/precise production style does often have these issues tbh (emptiness). I don't think its terrible though, probably would be helped if more ideas where happening in the track to add tension and moods. Dont mind it though, totally fine with the vocals too.

Ha, i like it. Sorry.

(mmm, its a bit empty hearing it with good headphones)
Reminds of Positive reflection which I really liked for its emptiness and grooviness. This one sounds even more polished up and crisp and bit more meaty with more ooomph.

It doesn’t do enough for me. Its very clean but could do with more emotion. The big string pad lead sound around 2.15. I don’t know if its from the original version but I think more interesting notes could have been chosen for emotional impact.

its kind of one of those tracks you hear, theres nothing terribly bad about it but you probably won’t choose to listen to it much. In a club perhaps a different impact might happen.

Here is the extended mix. Very short for extended mix but whatever. Track is good and I like the vocals but the user above summed it up good with the last sentence. Also there is a Jam El Mar remix, who has gone techno style again.

Well this is obviously not intended for daily listening, but I think it would work very well in a DJ set.
Building vibes over a set's length. One for the DJs.

I like the vibe.
