[Tech? House] James Pingel - One Big Chord

So the name is absolutely a misnomer, this is not made with one chord, but with at least 4. With that out of the way, this got a little longer than most of the stuff I do, and I feel like it starts to drag a bit in the middle section, and a little in the second breakdown. I'm pretty sure I need to shorten the second breakdown, but for the middle should I add another breakdown or should I just lift out about half that section? Ending is also not final and I'm open to suggestions. No fadeouts.

The main chord that comes in first thing is dune 2 and the stabs that come in later are a Diva patch I made. M1 Preset for the lead and Bassimo 2 slightly modified default for the bass, 808 (d16 nepheton) for the drums. It's just mixed well to give it a bit of an analog vibe without going into crazy territory.

Sounds very analog. Well done!

I like, slow down the bpm's, find a retro vocal, and start to remember Kraftwerk productions. You have an electro or synthpop with great potential in your hands, but you have to work a little more.

I edited the OP as well since I took down the original version of the track to do a level-matched pre-master comparison of two mixes.

One is 128 bpm, pretty straight house with nothing special going on, the other is 121 bpm "electro" with a soul vocal I sliced up. Having not done anything with vocals before, I think it came out OK. I didn't want to overuse it, so I didn't use it very much, but I do still think it adds something without taking away when it's not there. I'd love feedback on the vocal use and your opinion on which version you prefer. I think both have their place, but I can't just release two songs this similar together. The other may be kept for live use or remix fodder or something.

Here's what I went with for the finished version, not sure if I still have the earlier revisions up or not.
