Nice and light feeling tune. A bit too happy/optimistic feeling for my taste at this current time but it sounds really beautiful. Everything before the breakdown is amazing for me.

Really cool one here! Not sure if any of you have played the recent Pokémon games on the Switch but 2:08 gives me strong Area Zero vibes which I really like :)

it doesnt suck but i dont like the bass/drums. they are too clinical/clean and the rhythm scheme is too basic. apart from that its decent. very twinkly.

not a fan of the vibe it brings, too much of rainbows and unicorns for me

arrangement/mixdown wise it's solid though

Don't get the too "happy" vibe like some folks here, sure it's more uplifting and bright than others but I am not locked up to the idea that every track needs to be dark and make you feel like you are entering batman's cave lol, I freaking love this tune and appreciate every work this guy does.

I was listening to this yesterday once again and finally realised the happy signature sound is heavily influenced by Solarstone stuff , nothing wrong with artist releasing influenced from / by stuff..enjoying it more now that I sorta understand the purpose of this track and ultimate purpose been, does it sound good/unique? Hell yes.

Sorry for the late reply and topic bump, but big thanks for everyone for their feedback!

Hell yes.

Yes it most definitely is. I didn't intend to copy Solarstone, it just kinda came out this way. Once I realized it, I might have leaned on into it a bit more. But yes the demo draft of this was actually titled Solarstone-esque. I'm actually surprised he hasn't mentioned it himself :)

To me this composition also has a bit of bittersweetness and melancholic side, even though it's still probably one of the most uplifting (= happy) melodies I've written. Probably influenced by my moods while writing it and what the title of the track means for me.

Eeeewwww, happiness in trance tracks!? NO THANKS, give us some nihilism on an audio-plate, make us depressed, let us hate ourselves and BRING ME THAT DARKNESS
Not bad I don't mind it. I can't understand the hate towards the track. One of the better tracks posted here you should be focusing this hate towards the tracks Armin makes. If every track out there would be dark and sad it would be a stale world. I reallly miss the happier/playful sounding tracks. I can also hear Solarstone in this track if I heard it even though I know it's made by Allende. Allende's remix of David West is awesome too and that has a happier vibe to it as well but it's more groovier compared to this which is what it's lacking.

why, because you say so? :)

do not defending Armin obviously here but the phrasing feels a bit Third Reich styled

especially given nobody really hates it, just a couple (sarcastic) mentions that the track doesn't hit home on a personal taste level that's it

Lovely, I love how the melody changes all the times and there are also some nice little sub-melodies going on.
