Thats how bad/good the scene is these days. I agree its not a good fit for TOTY really. Although this is a typical grower tune, I can sense it. Its not a tear-jerker or gettings-shivers trancer.I just don't like the fact that we're judging a TOTY based on how polished it sounds, rather than what emotions it provokes in a listener. Because what really does these days?
Good call. Is this a VDM bassline ? because I recall ive heard almost the exact same pattern in another track. Just cant come up with it now!bass line which sort of reminded me of VDM's Remix of Rising Star - Touch Me
That's why I sort of disagree with Activa's preferences for clean/polished tracks in the interview - I don't want to be looking for small details if the music itself doesn't resonate with me or makes me want to play it again at the very least. This one might be better than most though, I kinda feel like I'm being unfair, but I've listened to it an hour and a half ago, and I've completely forgotten what it sounds like. And for that very fact, it can't be a tune of the year for me...now.Thats how bad/good the scene is these days. I agree its not a good fit for TOTY really.

I actually like this one more than the Activa one as a whole.
