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.
