That's an interesting label name. For a moment I thought someone had remixed a remix.

I feel ashamed for even clicking "play". They are gonna think it's so popular because it has plays. It's crap.

Despite reading your comments I still thought "Oh well, how bad can it be?" - I never want to press play to this label again.

Here's something to make you hard and filthy again:

I don't get it. What is wrong with it? It's not bad at all :cautious:
I'm reviewing the 4:14 version.

The kick and psy sounds are an instant turn-off for some people.
Honestly the first minute and a half is just Generic Trance Banger #4501. Nothing indicates that this is a Kamaya Painters - Far from Over remix until about ~1:40.
The synth sounds awful, like a watered-down supersaw, and the melody itself is really cheesy. It's not "cheesy-endearing" like the original Kamaya Painters was, but more like "cheesy-bad." The track's first climax is Generic Trance Banger #4502 and does not reference the source material, but to be fair it does sound kinda lit.
For the second climax I had to listen to the extended version. The melodic climax has the same issues described above for the synth and the melody.

This track would have been better off as a pure, banging tech-trancer without any reference to Kamaya Painters. Melodies from that project don't work in today's age, and the producer needs to lower the volume of the high ends in his track.

I'm not the one who normally likes this kind of trance but i thought it was ok actually. It has that typical sledgehammer kick and generic sounds but overall i think it sounded ok.

That's a valid viewpoint. I thought the sledgehammer and generic sounds were just fine, actually. I think people have an overly negative viewpoint because it is a Kamaya Painters remix, but for me the irony is that the Kamaya Painters sections are actually the worst, and the "modern" parts aren't that bad.
