Haha... yes, this sounds like any number of old school productions, including many of Gielen's own, but not as harsh...Y'all complaining about the lead synth never heard Airscape - L'Esperanza? I had the same comments about the lead synth in that classic. It seems like that is the track which inspired Johan Gielen & TasteXperience for this production.
Honestly, the lead synth is nowhere as annoying as the one in Airscape - L'Esperanza, so if this synth bothers you then I can't imagine what you must think about that classic.
Well it's not as phat as L'esperanza but I think that's the point, it's meant to be a crossover between Gielen's and TX styles. Works for me anywayComparing with L’Esperanza is silly. This ‘modern’ supersaw in this new track is noizy. Its not bold, phat or strong, like the old Svenson & Gielen synths. Those had character.
Its thin, weak, plastic. Its template-y, without any character.
