From what I can hear it sounds like the high end could use a little boost. Some of the percussion sound kind of buried. Overall great track. Nice buildup and transitions.

Re: [chillstep] Xi Tau - These Cold Days

Even if this is intended as a DJ style track, I think a bit of fade in for the beginning would be nice. Like a bar with volume automation. I think all the atmospheric stuff really feels blended together/glued nicely.

Also like the longer intro.

The arp/tuned perc running throughout really holds everything down. Personally I like the that the high end is a bit muffled. Personally I'm not a fan of super sparkly modern high end. Kick thumps nicely. Maybe a little more rimshot in the mix. Doesn't need to smack me in the face, but is pushed back a tad far for my taste.

Overall really well done. That bridge starting around 2:50 is quite nice. I like that electronic signing string sound a lot.

Re: [chillstep] Xi Tau - These Cold Days

I like everything I'm hearing, especially your attention to modulation on the leads. The combination of bass and low end is super solid to me. There's a lot of processing going on the percussion that I can't describe as too futuristic (not to be taken personally that is just constantly what I am looking for) but the percussion is also not too dry so I don't mind so much.

Once again, there's a lead in here that's got the perfect amount of distortion and vibrato and that is A++

Re: [chillstep] Xi Tau - These Cold Days

your stuff sounds really chill!

i feel like i can really mello out with this tune. you have that flow that makes me want to run for miles in like a old ps2 game thats buried in my closet. but i feel like there should be more variation with your music. try to change the style maybe add some minimalist vibes and maybe some sidechaining effects. try to use a bass groove with the synth vibe. thats just my deal. but i give your stuff a 8/10.
