Just tried a trance track, which kind of trance could that be?

That is really good. I especially like the way it peaks from 6 - 6:30 min. It sounds like something that gets released on Pure Trance, only better. Try labels like Pure Trance, Pure Progressive, Lost Language, Bonzai Progressive, Perfecto. Will think of others and let you know later.

Both are quite nice, but loving Spacewalk. You're really talented.

Christmas Remix of a track of another project. The hook is a bit similar to the hook of a trance track from about 1998 - 2000 or something. Anybody knows which track that could be? Searching since days...

Ooooooh I really like this one, the lead melody is so simple yet so effective and catchy. Your sounds are very rich with a variety of things going on at any given time. Listening on ordinary laptop speakers I would say that in this particular track the mastering/mixdown could be improved as it sounds too loud in places, but maybe it will sound different on proper monitors. You might be able to interest @Enlusion in signing one of your tracks, he owns Forescape Digital :cool:

Oh thanks! Nice, just wrote Enlusion. Yea im not the best in mixing, even though i studied audio production lol. But i just like more the productional part of composing melodies and harmonies. There are several parts in production, where i could invest more time in. But technical mixing and mastering is the one, that i like least. Luckily i have a friend, who can do that for me

Quasycrystals is a lovely track. There's almost no feedback to give, I wouldn't add or take away anything.

I'd love to know your secret for consistently churning out tracks of this quality at such a high rate. You are a machine! 😆

Love this track. Amazing atmosphere (as with all your stuff) the simple percussion offset by that groovy bassline. Fantastic work!
Thank you :) My new secret of creativity is to work on several different projects in rotation. There were times where i couldnt make a good love nation track for several months, because i didnt try something else in between. But now i rotate in completly different styles and that way, there is almost always any inspiriration given.

Special track lol. Have a new sound system and tried serious mixing for the first time. You could give me some feedback about the mixing. The track is a rework of a pre love nation track. I think my style is not really suitable for mixing. It feels like this rework is a lame minimal remix because of the mixing. Have to get used to it.

To hell with mixing, your tracks sounded fine to me. If you want to release on a label, then you have to mix really well, but I feel that really ruins the feel and vibe of tracks - especially tracks with rich sound design like yours - and I think your creativity and output would suffer.

Collage is pretty fine!

Yea thats true! It feels like i have to decide between my typical style or proper mixing. Need to find a compromise... I even made a rework of Galactic Birds, but its not worth to upload it, the energy and feeling is gone. Maybe need more practise and then will find new ways for reconciling

I think that it's always a good idea to try other things stylistically to keep your own sound fresh. Especially if trying to get the exact sound you want is making you feel frustrated.

Maybe you'll come back to this style at a later date with fresh ears and sharpened skills! 😉

Just out random of interest, what DAW and synths are you using for your productions?

Yes maybe its an opportunity to work more detailed, like morphing effects for spacey sounds. A simple arrangement with only few synths is easier for that.

I use ableton live 10. My plug ins are Xfer Serum and Rob Papen Predator. And i have also free versions of vital and pendulate, but dont use them so much.
