    Magnevi - Bermuda's Little Sound

    Alright! My brand new original track.

    Although it's not 100% original, as I actually made a version of this track back in 2012. That's a long time ago. This new version sounds a lot more professionional (I think), and with it's pumping 138 beats, the track is in a very different subgenre as well.

    What do you think? Is it worth sending out to some small labels? Or maybe some feedback and tips on the production?

    The whole thing is ready for demo, except for one thing.

    I would rethink the acid sound or leave it out entirely. It makes the whole thing a bit cheesie IMVHO.

    Thanks man! On all the feedback

    I actually added that acid stab very late in the process. I thought it would make the beat/bass a bit more exciting.

    I now lowered the volume of that layer 1,5 db in my project file. That puts it a bit more in the background. Not sure about deleting it completely yet

    Love those chord stabs! The bassline hits a little bit too suddenly, but I love the sound of it; very old-school.

    You could make that acid a bit more sparse in the arrangement, not play it every beat, as a compromise. It doesn't need to be more quiet. I like it, though it does play a bit too often.

    I find the sound of the melodies a bit too harsh; personally, I'd go for something softer, though this works as well. They aren't very cohesive with the base elements (or between themselves - that arp melody later in the climax), and it sounds like you have too many ideas here.

    As far as advice goes, I wouldn't really know, as there's technically nothing wrong with it. If you wanted to, you could easily send this to a label because the production is good. The above is just what I like and dislike about this track (which is, of course, based on my personal taste).

    Replaced the file.

    Some slight mixing improvements. And also reduced the amount of 'acid' samples.

    Cool track. Totally digging it. Reminds me of different styles from the first half of the 2000s. This is what the scene needs more of

    Dont delete the acid btw.

    Good job with the acid now. I'd say the first two minutes are the strongest in this track. I agree with Daysleeper too, it does resemble some styles from like 2004 onward.

    I like the bassline and the chord stabs near the beginning - pretty good production quality. Melody wise its not really my thing,but overall its a pretty cool track,some nice emotion in there.
