    Driftmoon - Invictus (Isha's Theme) [Taken from 'Invictus' album] [Flashover recordings]




    Lead track from my upcoming artist album "Invictus" will be released on Flashover Recordings on 23rd March. It was premiered last night by Ferry Corsten on Corsten's Countdown.

    Would love to hear your thoughts about it.

    Track starts at 22:35.

    a bit too loud, melodramatic and wayyy too much white noise for my liking.

    It is a bit too loud yes, for a single release compared to whole album which is mastered at -10 LUFS, more dynamic than most of the commercial albums.

    Btw I take that 'melodramatic' comment as a compliment

    The main melody is pretty nice if not a little familiar sounding. Crazy overpowering kickdrum though, a weird bassline, and the whitenoise all ruin this for me, sorry.

    Not for me. Agree with the above comments. I like that melody that begins at the start of the SoundCloud preview and fades away, but that's about it.

    -10 LUFS is still loud as fuck. Even Spotify is limited to -14 LUFS, which means if we're listening to your music on spotify, 4db of your intended loudness is missing and replaced by unnecessary compression/reduction of dynamics and distortion artifacts. I get that you probably have no control on the loudness of your tracks, even if you compress very little in the mixing stage and deliver the premasters in R128 standard, the label's mastering guy will still trash it to -10 LUFS. However -10 LUFS is still not anything to be proud of. The "Everyone else is doing it too" excuse is the reason why most things are so bad in life.

    Juraj, I so much wanted to like the track. But kick is waaay to overpowering and bass is disconnected of it. But i must say, one of your best melody and chord progerssions.

    Btw that lead synth sound, really good

    Thank you Miikka, really appreciate it. I’ve tried different versions of the track but with this kick it was still a peak time trance track so I’ve decided to keep that. Btw every album track will have a remix so if you want to give this track a Miikka spin I’m OK with that.

    Haha, producers must be deaf or suffering from severe hearing loss these days. "elements sticking out". thats the problem, nothing sticks out, everything just blends together in this large soup of white noise and loudness. exactly the opposite of sticking out.
