wow that melody is so familiar, there's some 90ies eurodance track that has a very similar progression but I just can't produce it and it's bugging me all to hell LOL

Like with your previous track, the drum programming is excellent and varied. I think the weaker point is the synth sounds chosen, which seem a bit "shy" for want of a better word. The eurodance style melody makes me wanna hear a more in-your-face style lead sound. But maybe you want things to be more subtle? If so, then maybe try automating or developing the lead (electric harp type) sound a bit

Thanks once again :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I didn't want the synths being too powerful for the drums on this one I really like the way the drums are banging , my gut feeling is telling me to leave it at this stage . however if anybody else agree what you saying with the synths I go into it again , obviously all views are welcome if anybody else has anything to add? :puf_wink: :puf_wink: :puf_wink:

Its strange you say that as the melody is really familiar to me too, thinking sometime around when gatecrasher was open in Sheffield or late 90's. Good track though skimrok 👍

Yes sound familiar to me too was thinking U-96 Das boot and Jarre but I think it's more the synth sound that makes it sound familiar

But so what if it sounds familiar it does sound good and got a catchy melody I like it

Really cool track. I don't mind the synth being a little more reserved. It let's the drums take the stage without too much of a distraction. The mix is really clean, too.
