    The mastering is awful. The trebble is waaaaay too sharp and loud, and the sound-stage sounds really weird. This doesnt even sound like his other tracks. Like there are no mids and the bass is really muffled/dark.

    + white noise, lots of it.

    Ive heard this before. :P The mastering makes it sound like someone elses track.

    Listened this a few times and I can hear what you mean, but it doesn't really harm the track for me. Could be a bit warmer.

    Pretty nice,although id say the kick is too subby and i dont like the huge snare rolls. I keep thinking hes trying to reach that 'catchy-ness' that the original 'Affinity' had all those years ago,but its not quite there in uniqueness or are not very memorable. Still,its lovely Trance for a sunny day.

    Its not bad but it wont be going into my collection. too much treble = tinnitus / hearing loss over time.

    I never liked the mastering by Juraj. I'm probably the only one but Amber sounds fucked to me. Everything way too loud and too much punch and treble. I'd love the flow of Orinoko Thrillseekers Remix. Warm and smooth.

    Agreed. It's a weird balance but i think it's intentional with two purposes in mind, the focus on the treble to make it sound good on laptop speakers (which is incapable of producing much bass anyway), and the focus on a lot of sub-bass (rather than mid bass) to make it really rumble in the club. Which is a shame because the track would have benefitted from a much warmer, balanced sound, and the actual musical ideas are quite nice.

    Im glad its not only me, and its a relief seeing others hearing the same.

    Stop butchering trance! They dont do it to house and techno. Why does it still suffer from this dubstep curse???

    F#$k you are right guys, this track would be 1000% better and beautiful with a better mastering. It's good tho. I'm afraid we have this problem in the whole album. Expectations

    Full version is out, and just... what a shame. Some lovely musical ideas swamped by ridiculous mastering. It's like someone took a massive band-pass filter and scooped the f*** out of the mids. I listen on some reasonably large 6 inch monitors, so i think i'm certainly in a position to comment on how it actually sounds. The bass is down there rumbling like mad but there's no definition to it. And the hats are so piercing and harsh it actually hurts my ears. The whole production is so fatiguing to listen to. I've never really heard other electronic track being mastered like this to be honest. Baffled, and disappointed.

    Oof, yeah, that sounds like something out of a live recording - bass is punchy and a bit overpowering, hats are piercing, and sounds like there's frequencies missing. Not very standard for Steve I don't think, wonder if FSOE took over the mastering.
