liking the sounds you employ and the drive.

but i must say: the melody is all over the place.

Well... it sounds a LOOOOOOOT like Pulser - My Religion.

I mean, I like it's oldschool-y, I like that you decided to go that route, rather then (semi)modern stuff, I like the synth sound, I like the choir...

but it's way too much My Religion. My brain tells me I'm listening to that old Pulser track.

In what respect? If people are hearing My Religion,then it cant be that far out hehe.

If you guys made an original that sounded a lot like another track (not exactly the same melody) would you rename it a remix or an original track?

Tbh im not that bothered,i only make tracks purely for fun nowadays...

Sounds like a more generic my religion with inferior equing/mastering. Everything just sounds flat to me unfortunaly , from sounds/instruments used to the whole arrangement/style/structure. The chord progression is off to me aswell.

Not the worst thing ive heard in my life though...

I think you may have explained the reason why im thinking about not making 4/4 Trance anymore. After 20 years and over 100 tracks,i may have hit a stale 'wall' and it almost feels a chore making this style,and im making tracks just for the sake of it. I still really enjoy listening to my 4/4 stuff and i have some hardcore fans hehe - but it might be a good idea to take some years out from it,and come back revitalised with some great original melodies and different style.

I'l still of course make the Chilled Trance - something i still really enjoy - taking a track in a completely new direction and atmosphere.

The pulser track is on the edge of what I would call a memorable/ “whistelable” melody. It’s the simplicity of the riff that does it.

imvho yours is over the edge ;) i don’t feel (but again this is just me) like it’s really going anywhere.

If I (happens all the time) make something that sounds a lot like xtrack before. I usually do two things

- tinker with the melody/chords till they are unique enough, but making very sure I don’t over complicate it

- start from scratch, but keep the bass/kick etc.

to me it just the main melody in your track that needs fixing, all the other elements I think are fine :)

I think il just finish it and leave it...it might provide some entertainment how many people mention My Religion haha.

Jokes aside, Daysleeper is a very... Capricious listener, I'd say))) Nice one, sounds quite good. One thing that I might complain on but that's my cockroaches: kick could be softer)
