great kick drum and sub - not massively my cuppa would have liked more variation on the melody but I suppose thats techno - lovely production overall.

Love those sounds, very nice sound design throughout. I did find the click on the kick a bit loud to my taste but not really a big deal.

Nice buildup, the fading-in tambourine was a nice touch. The repetitive nature of most techno is not my thing but this is very well done.

Nice work

I love that break from 3:00. Maybe would use some more hat groove from 2:00 but besides that sounds good

Like this. I just feel that the main synth lead, which works well, could do with more variation and builds. But Ive just had a quick listen. Like mix, mid/tops sound a little lost in the balance of the mix, but then this is techno - there are no rules!

Enjoy!

sounds good to me mate. i would love to have this in vinyl and ill tell you, id mix this for hours... and beat the shit out of it! this literally is a big club i could hit people with from up on the stage, and they would love it.

good job. i do sense the high hat could be a little more random, or add two or three change in pattern loops, and brighten them up bout .5 db @ the shelf. somewhere around 8k hz.

the snare, that comes occasionally, along with the clap, could benefit from slightly more reverb... or at least inc the decay a tad... so it lingers a few more seconds. this freq range could be brightened up too by @ .5 db.

thats all I would do to it... just to see how that makes the song sit. i actually got up and danced to this while it played three times so... just saying.

Re: [Techno] Chris Van Gills - Something About The Music

Really nice to read that! I'll pay attention to all the details mentionned above, it could be some interesting ways to improve the all thing. Thank you very much. Other than that I think the mix remark of MFXxx is accurate, I gotta work on it.
