It took me quite a few takes to nail the mixdown, but I guess I did it!
Had some trouble with the kick and Reese.
Whats your opinion?

awesome job! love the semi random outro vibe—that kind of thing can add so much when it’s done right, and it’s done right.

reminds me a bit of early Fischerspooner, and makes me wish there were some vocals in it, but that’s not to say it needs anything else, it’s just a fond memory it brings up. :)

nice song you have created. thumbs up.

i love the complexity of song. but at around 2:30 you lost the red line. song got uninterested. then again after minute or so it became interesting. that middle part is somehow lost in message.

am... only thing it bothers me about your song is that it is a bit too much childish. i do not know how to say it otherwise but as i said. it is too much childish. i do not want to say it is not grown... somehow it is not serious song/it is not children's. i do not know. i hope you will not get angry for me saying this.

and on the other side i see you quite master the creating songs. very nice.

overall thumbs up.

So cool to hear this kind of music. My main suggestion is to try to make the track go somewhere. It repeats the same notes over and over (A -> C -> B -> D (or Bb)) and it isn't even that strong a progression. I think that might be what RNW was getting at when he said childish. It might be better to make the track shorter because it gets a bit repetitive.

I like the drum sounds. Super DNB style, and the reece bass sounds good as well. Also love the randomized bits.
Still nostalgic about the old days, writing songs with my Amiga 500, Korg M1, and Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler.

I'm with Carl (and possibly RNW) in that while it sounds good as such, it lacks a greater narrative or Story and so ends up feeling more like a "workout" than a piece of music so compelling I want to do it again.

In Jazz terms that is that you have the initial loop which is the "call" but don't have any sort of "response". That makes it rather like saying the same thing over and over for x minutes instead of a conversation or journey.

My advice on this (which is almost universally ignored) is to worry less on the Mix and more on the Story and that will make the Mixing so much easier as the Story tells you how to mix itself. You can even muff the mix pretty badly as people are focused on the story, not the technicalities.

@SDG and Benedict
Hi guys,
Thank u so much for breaking down my track and come up with these responses. This might make me a better producer!
Since you guys took the effort to listen, think about it and write extensively, allow me to respond in a suiting matter and explain my thoughtprocess with this track.

It is a dancetrack and imho dance is about simplicity and repetition (in a way). Sure, I could use more notes, diff variations, more ghostnotes, diversity in beats, etc. But I simply (...) didnt want to. I wanted this track to be unsettling and repetitive. I wanted the listener to get in some kinda flow of an uneasy atmosphere.
Hence not too much variation.
After all good music is in the ear of the beholder, right?

Once again, I really appreciate the feedback you gave me and it got me thinking.
This is one of the reasons why I still join and post in this group. Gathering and sharing knowledge and opinions👍🏼👍🏼
