At first listen it sounds quite good, just the main synths are way too much loud? and the pitch of the synths way too high? need more listens, and on proper speakers

The stream quality start poor, or is it just me?

Heard this on his recent dreamstate set which was an ID. That set also had a terrible trouse remix of Plastic Boy twixt which is due out soon too.

Instantly could tell it was Mr Push. Thankfully this is far away from his recent FSOE releases. I was quite surprised how old school it is for Armada. The melody inverts quite well but it's very pitchy plucky (if yer get me!). I'm standing that up against how well the plastic boy melody's of old stand up to this and whilst different it doesn't reach those highs. Not sure on the kick n Percs either. Need a better quality version.

Will reserve judgement until I hear the full track, but I like the ideas here. With a couple of more details, tweaks, maybe a faster pace and more aggressive synths it could've been even better, on par with some of his classics. It's nice, just doesn't hit emotionally like some of his classics do (which it reminds me of).

The remix for Twixt was rather psy-oriented than bigroom, but still it was quite bad.
The track Remind is a potentional big grover. It sounds better and much cleaner in the Dreamstate set. I like how the melody changes over time. Im missing some real climax in the track. But it flows quite nicely anyway. Finally a Push track that sounds like the good old Push :) I guess the lenght might be around 9 mins, which is nice :)
Also good news is that MIKE decided not to continue with Mostiko label. I think Armada is much better option with better promotion, so the track is not overlooked and will probably have a lots of attention and playtimes

Oh yes, I like it. It has some similarities to Sunset on Ibiza in the synths but also has that unique Push sound.

The ONLY THING, a tiny detail only, about it except that its sounds good or like old push (debatable) is:

Since this is your least negative comment on a new release this year, it means this might actually be your tune of the year, so congrats mate, good choice ;)

Still waiting on those reasons... I did like the post, as instructed.
I want more likes!!

Okok. Need to turn it on again. But this is my reasons why I think its boring.

1. The kick is a turnoff. Typical filtered psytrance kick. It also has too much attack-force imo, especially in headphones. It wanna drill a small hole in my brain.
2.The bassline. Have you ever heard psytrance from the mid 2000s?
3. The hats, generic stadium techno noisy hats.
4. The structure. Its too simple, too repetitiv for being 8.30 min. I dont even care that it has a middlepart. I can't pick up any intersting quirks/nuances that I find during the lenght of the whole track.
5. The melody arrangement. Here also, way too simple for my liking.

Could have benefitted from some contrasting polyrhythms ofc!

The only "thing" it has going that could be considered is the sound-design, but even here its lacking, so IMO people are too easily bought.

Decent better than his FSOE stuff. Very reminiscent of Three Drives.
Yes, it's a good one my Mike
