Some interesting ideas, but also some things I didn't like. My points of critique are mostly the slightly shifted clap/snare drum, I think it destroys the groove a bit to not have it tight with the kick. I also thing that some elements are not well balanced. This synth that already comes into the intro is a bit too loud with too much highs IMO, the sax could in turn be a bit louder and clearer.
Yet after all I really give you thumbs up, because it is a really unique sound and creates a nice atmosphere
I definitely liked it, but I think it could be mixed a little better to make all the parts stand out more, it seemed like some of the lines were buried under the rest of the track. The whole melody was nice though, and everything seemed to flow together pretty nicely, but I would just try and make it "pop" a little more, the track sounds like it should be a lot more prominent than it is
I think I'd get a snappier snare and a more powerful kick to the mix. Try also NY compression and working a bit with the levels on the mixdown, the synth solo line is drowning the bass too much at some moments imo.
I can go either way on the snare, it does give the track some character, but it can be distracting too. Maybe a little less of a nudge?
The mix was clean enough, but yeah, you could probably notch some space out of the various elements to get them to fit together a little better. Honestly though, it kind of fit with the loose vibe you've set up with the late snare, so I dunno.
The rest of it is pretty interesting indeed. Definitely unique and original. Quite nice actually.
Haunting as in not happy latiny sounding tech house, was what I'm trying to get at there.
Believe me you wouldn't be asking for any more deep bass if you had ever heard anything I've ever tried to make with any more subbass, made a decision awhile ago I'm just never gonna work with it, I just can't tame it into anything I'm trying to make with it.
so ill leave well enough alone and my hair is starting to grow back
Must stress I'd throw up another version with the few edits, I have already done and in mind and all, but its under the artful hands of a friend of mine. So that's why it remains as is for the mo.
Must say though this is great I've put the track on up on other sites and nothing but eearry silence. Fair play to everyone taking time out to listen and comment, I'm relatively new on here but expect my critical eye running rule over your tracks soon.
Hi, I'm currently taking a quick listen through my laptop so the speakers are far from great, but everything seems to come through alright. I think a lot of things here are subjective opinions rather than essential. Of all the things I'd suggest is centering the snare.
After humming that synth to myself in the intro. The sharp apreggiated style one, it seemed quite familiar the pattern. Not that it's the same exactly, but I'm sure I've heard something like that in a demo song for some software like Reason before or something in the past.

Yeah a lot of things are subjective no doubt, but defo willing to listen to any advice if not to change anything in this one.
Not sure about your reason song, i use ableton, and the sound is from my virus, and the apegiator is the virus' native one. But hey it's not the most complex pattern it could be similar to something else I'm sure.
I know I keep bleating on about the final edit being on the way and yet no sign, will defo post up onto thread and brace myself again :shitstorm:
Only kidding, I'm delighted with all this feedback it's beyond what I expected. Thanks everyone
