I lost hope.

If this wasn't Mike himself, the track would've been rejected by the label. The production is tight and punchy, but the arrangement is just so off that it seems amateurish. Gated pads should be banned if used so uncreatively. Could've been an ok track, but this is half-baked at best.

Production ok, ideas lacking. @Gagi agree, had false hope.

Huh I don't agree with the comments :D I really like it!!
Same, wtf?
The little section at 4:17 feels a bit off (probably too much white noise), but overall it's... okay? Like, not track of the year, but not inherently bad, and much better than a boring tech uplifter lol

I do not hear anything bad here. To be honest it sounds promising IMO. Will judge it after the release.

Just heard the full version. I have to say this is by far my fav Push tune in recent years!

Just listened to the 7 min version.

Conclusion:

Production: OK, tight, nothing outstanding, BASIC
Build: ok, hearing some MIKE sounds, nothing spectacular though
Build-melody: cheesy, one-note. its acceptable but predictible and overused
Break: just ok.
Main-lead: cheesy unispired
Outro: non-existent.


Rating : 5.2/10

Hey mate I had to remove your download link sorry, gotta be fairly strict on the file sharing of store accessible tracks (google will also punish us in the search results). Pretty funny idea though ha, can you share a shortened sample? That would not break that rules

I must say I like this one a lot. Not the typical darker Push sound, but hey...its MIKE Push track and its FSOE, so pretty ok for me :)
The edited version by TeardropNL is better of course. I dont like his modern kick and claps. So nice little upgrade :)
