[Tech House / Techno] Maitri - Blake

This track has been buzzing around my head / studio for too long so have been trying to get it finished. It's driven me mad and i think i've lost perspective on it... wondering on a arrangement and a sample / vocal to add a bit of variety/ focus to this track. Thoughts welcomed!!

To be honest I have a hard time when songs go over 5+ mins but this rolled along nicely and kept me in the whole time.
I really liked the delays and modulations.
Not really sure what you'd add vocally or where?
Also the kick kinda pops up when the synths duck out - not sure if that's intentional.

Hi Mattem,

Sure, you could put a vocal over that, or just leave it. Either would work I think. I think the mixing could use a bit of adjusting as I found the kick a bit too present, same for some of the sweeps ans such for example around 1:45. I kinda wanted to keep the background stabs going more in the foreground as a driving element and have the other sounds come in lower in the mix to provide interest but not to distract from the trance-effect of the rhythm. Around 3:20ish you could then pull back on the driving stabs for a while and have a more pronounced change. my 2c.

Cheers for the feedback --- i've put this track in the fridge for a couple of weeks till i come back to it with fresh lugs. I definitely agree that it needs a proper mixdown... I shall take your advice on board - toothpinch - also mentioned that so cheers for the ears folks!
