That sound (sort of a swell) in the break is too annoying, it's for sure a preset off of some synth that tries to emulate a hardware one. Actually, most of the melodic elements are presets.
That said, I really do appreciate the ideas here, and would like to hear a couple more in this style. This, to me, feels like a tasteful crossover between synthwave and trance. There's no annoying 80s snares (and drums overall) just for the sake of it, there isn't too many cliche synthwave ideas. This has a bit of synthwave (some sound design), bit of orchestral (breakdown melodies), and bit of regular trance (beatwork, "climax").
But it needs something more, there is no richness to a track that relies heavily on the sound design. The beats are simply not creative at all - I don't mind the simplicity. Improving the beatwork is a good start, as well as FX. Then I would improve the "climax" a bit as it really sounds empty and like it's missing something.
There are some interesting sections but on the whole the track falls flat. I like the sound of the bubbly bassline but nothing much gets added onto it as the track progresses. The climax is uninspiring and just kinda peters out.
I actually like this one. It's got some Space Manoeuvres Stage One inspired effects in there. Well produced and subtle approach. Def could have been elevated to another level but I like what it is. Seems more like a PURE release than a NEON one.
Basically a homage to Space Manoeuvres - Stage One. It's one of the most remixed tracks ever. This has so many similarities as it borrows a little bit from several different remixes whilst adding some of its own flavour and packaging everything into a modern track. Very nice if not very original.
Love the intro and breakdown a lot more than the climax. I appreciate the stripped down take on things (much needed in today scene) and I simply love the atmosphere and Blade Runner soundscape. Nevertheless I think the track would benefit from just a bit more ommpf in the climax to make you space out at 6am in a dark club. A bit more acid or just an evolved riff with that retro synth would work wonders
