[Trance] JKillz - Systems Online

Hi there,

Lately I have been having fun with trance music and wanted to infuse some elements from Hard, Acid and Psy into a dark Trance track. I made some voice samples as well to give it an extra layer and help it tell a story.

Feedback is always welcome.



Thanks for listening

Awesome track! However...


It's Psytrance I think, not necessarily mainstream Trance. That's splitting hairs, but based on the bass and intermittent sounds, I'd definitely classify Psytrance. I love Psytrance.

I really like how you introduced acid bassline here. I don't listen to trance usually but this one is very interesting. And the structure is unusual. Maybe I will try to listen to some trance now

Hey!

Not a huge fan of trance but I like this one! Particularly the fusion of influences, I'm sure my trance friends will like this one too. That acid line is sick and I honestly was impressed on the variations you did on it. It starts as a dark acid line and progresses into a choppy, jumpy, and "happy" acid.

The mixing on this track can definitely be improved. The following suggestions are based on my personal taste:

- A little more present kick throughout the track
- A better relationship between kick and bass, on the EQ
- I would saturate the bass a little
- The high end could be brighter (especially the hat)

Keep it up! Cheers

Thanks PPNDP, really cool of you to listen even if not a genre you normally get into. Even cooler that you were able to enjoy it, thanks

ATvrB, I appreciate it, glad you were able to catch the evolution of the acid line which was part of the hidden story Great feedback too, I have been focusing a lot lately on the mixing, so this is something I will work on going forward. I want all the elements to compliment each other. Thanks!

Re: [Trance] JKillz - Systems Online

Those leads, that sub bass, and the sweeping effects are all on point. You got it down. Some of the vocal samples don't do it for me, most do. Some don't. It may even be in the recording you use. I don't really believe some of the words...obscure feedback I know but I can only imagine how this would make me feel while vulnerable on a dance floor

All your sounds sell it, just some of the words aren't quite there.

Overall, it's really good

Thanks DoYouSeeWhatISe, I am very happy you liked the track. As for the vocals, this is something I will take forward since I have recently started working on making my own sampling (this being the first real test).

I appreciate it!

Re: [Trance] JKillz - Systems Online

Not my go to style a music on a rainy day in hell, but when I hear a solid record I can't deny it! You go something here!

From the jump out the gate I was impressed with some of the automation, instrument choices, structure, and general vibe! What I am hearing however is a fe mix issues:

As mentioned the kick to bass relation needs work. The kick could use a train sent shaper, maybe slap it on the snare as well. Give it more attack,. less sustain.

To separate the bass and kick at times maybe have a few section where the bass bandpasses, and then the kick dominates the low end frequencies.

Also ensure that anything that is not meant to be low end has been low passed.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: [Trance] JKillz - Systems Online

Thanks tvmcc, very kind of you to say and much appreciate the feedback. I will have to take a closer look at the kick/bass relationship going forward cause that is vital in this type of music imo.

Much appreciated!

Excellent.

I can't criticise anything regarding the sound or song. Sounds solid to me.
The snare sound is not what I would choose, but there is no right or wrong.
