Came out epic, man! Sorry I made you work so hard on this one. Haha. Great job, as always! :)
Great to finally hear some new stuff, man. Super honored to be one of the first to hear it, aside from yourself. Awesome sound. Extremely chill, yet also somehow epic. Definitely can imagine this as a fantastic background soundtrack. Keep it up and don't disappear again!!! Haha... look who's talking. :)
I don't plan to re-re-disappear! Thanks again for the encouragement and positivity. As always, you're the greatest!
Good stuff. I like the sound. Certainly does the job of trance and just like many trance songs it's way too long. Quite good work, but unable to hold my interest for 8 minutes. After hearing all of your submissions I definitely think you should do more like this.
Thank you for responding to the track, the length is pretty standard for a trance track but 8 mins is not for everyone, the intro, beakdown and outro make up a lot of those mins and when i produce i usually am thinking of the track as a tool for the DJ and try to make it DJ friendly for mixing :)
Simple yet elegant. Definitely a piece that can be used for those serious/big moments in a film. Sounds all work brilliantly together. I actually wouldn't be surprised to hear this song be used in a movie. It's just as good as some of the stuff they have made for the big screen. Excellent work.
Thanks man, glad you like this piece and yes i was inspired by movie style scores for this piece, i love listening to score type music, thanks again mate :)
This is the best I've heard from you so far. Definitely has a good rhythm and beat to it. Enough variation to warrant the 6 minute playtime. All around I can certainly say it holds itself up. Only critique is the kick. I like its sound, but my sub has no idea that it's even there. It would definitely help a dance song if subs would actually bump with the song. Dancers typically like to feel what they're dancing to.
Thanks again for responding, glad you like it and as for the kickdrum it was crafted pretty much to the standard of the UK hardcore style, tight and punchy without to much sub rumble :)
Just like your most recent song, this one also feels like the entire song is building to something else. Although this one doesn't stand on its own quite as well. I like the instruments used, but something is missing. Another layer on top of what you already have to make it sound a bit more like a song, rather than just the beginning of a song. It certainly has a catchy rhythm to it though. :)
Hey man thanks for comments, this one was created like this as just a catchy head nodding rhythm with a minimalistic approach, but yes i always thought it could use a few more elements thrown in there, thanks for feedback :)
Main critique is that the kick is much too sharp. Every time I feel like I'm getting punched. With music, of course, that has the potential to be a good thing. But here it hits my ears all wrong.
Second to that would be that I feel as if the whole entire song is a buildup to something and we never get to hear the main song. It just sounds like it's building through the entire almost six minutes. So when it ends and I don't get to hear what it was building to, it feels a little empty.
Other than those two issues it's a pretty solid and rounded sound. But I feel it should only be used as an intro, maybe the first minute, of another song.
Hey man thanks for commenting again :) the popping kickdrum i have going here is the trademark sound for psy trance, and also the repetitive textures and sounds all through the track with a buildup feel are standard for this style, psy trance never usually has a strong melodic element to it, its all about the textures and atmosphere and in my case i threw in a progressing acid buildup :)
Great work. Very good, upbeat sound to it. I could see this being used in one of those "comeback" moments in a story. I'm surprised how long it is, but it manages to stay interesting. Fantastic use of layering. Keep it up!
Thank you! :D And thanks for the review!
Unfamiliar with the song...
Unfamiliar with the song, but this is a fantastic mix.
I'm not sure how close it is to the original, but I know what you are able to do with remixes so I'm not worried.
Great work, Parker!
Brilliant - I expect nothing less
I'd be willing to bet that people have been put off by the beginning, but I wouldn't change a thing. If they know you, they know what you are about to lay out on the table.
I say pursue this one. I think you can do a lot with it. I know I've mentioned Glitch Mob before, but this is really right on par with their level of epic. However, it's still yours. In no way would I consider it a rip-off.
9 for not going all the way with it.
Bring this one to life.
