Been working on this one a lot. Might add a few vocal touches as I find it hard to tell if this is finished (albeit accept level adjustments, cleaning up the interference sound & side chaining etc)


Structure?

Any recommendations / feedback welcome

This one broke TranceFix and caused a 12h outage.

It has lots of potential, but I feel the bassline is a bit too much inspired by pop, so it doesn't fit with these minimalistic progressive beats.

Gonna give you a few tracks that might help in the inspiration department. Your track reminded me of them a bit. Here they are:
- Deepsky - Talk LIke a Stranger (Markus Schulz Vocal Mix)
- PQM & Cica - The Flying Song (Markus Schulz Renaissance Vocal)

Loving it m8, where did you pull that box from?

the only thing that I find a tad of is the kick sample. Love the box melody and baseline that reminds me strongly of “killer” for some reason

nice 👌

Thanks mate. The bass is a bit killer like actually isn’t it. Good old Adamski. Bit of a legend. The vocal is from a huge pack i bought 4 years ago, plus a bit of added fx. Can’t check right now but I will when next with my pc and let you know.
Il check out that kick. Cheers

Some really nice ideas in this one.
Love that little string sample in the background that comes ins straight from the start.
Also really liking all the little ear candy effects that are peppered throughout the background, gives the track a lot of atmosphere.

Agree with @Jetflag , I'm not sure on the kick sample, maybe a more punchy kick might work better here?
I'd also bump the vocals gain up a bit as well as they get lost behind the music a bit at points.

Overall it's sounding promising!
