|DayMare (Original Mix) by ForensiK MistaKe|
|Hard intro with very cool drum patterns! It slips into the bridge with so much ease! Love that gating lead saw! The break at 2:20 is so serious damn serious. Love that lead you dropped there. You've goten way too good at sneaking your kicks back into the groove smh. 3:30, my fav gated saw synth is back in full force!! 4:10, pluck thingy is on point. 4:30, I know the piano roll was getin crazy!!! Melodies start layering up like cheese on lasagna and they all cut through clearly!
Very well done sir. The kick holds it down for the most part but as you know I make electro so i'm kinda big on that..uh..what do you call it...oh yea, BASS!! Yahaha. I can def hear a dirty electro bline in this tune that would make it even more bonker. Thats just it thou, you've made a cool tune even without crazy bass but with extremely freshly layered leads and shit.
All in all, greatness homie. Keep layin em down propa pimpin!
Boi oh boi has it been fun hearing you grow as a artist.

|EatMe & Spaan - Juice by EatMe|
|Love it from the begining!! The drums and analogue bass feel out the lows VERY well. The first breakdown is very blissful and melodic. The bass there distrupts the lows here and there. I starts in the breakdown.. I.E. 49, 54, 1:00, etc...I think it may be the lower notes and the triplet chords you have on that pluck. I'd say hit it with a filer in you should be gravy. Other than that the lead adds another slice of haven on this classy sandwich. Phrasing/progression is like water. No hard stops or sudden drops and pickups anywhere. Well donerz!!

|(response from artist) Hi GtheG. Thank you for your advice. I hope I can filter out the bass a bit on the plucks without adjusting the warmth of the sound too much. Good to hear you love it. Thanks again for your rating and review.|
|Patruno (PV) by Ayu MN|
|Yea ima have to second EatMe. I'll get the good out of the way first.
Nice progression and automation during the bridges on the modern talking lead waveform. Interesting choice in phrasing. Good idea with the chained white noise.
As for the bad...
Dubstep is defined generally by offset kick and snare rhythmic placement. The kick and snare here are what you would find in a House track. I.E. the kick and snare are both on the downbeat (the kick every four and the snare every two).
So in turn, this is House music and not dubstep on those principles alone..
The song peaks ALOT in very uneccessary places. This causes distortion/clipping in various areas of the track. For example, the chained white noise you have on the upbeat has very harsh high freqs that crush the midhigh and higher freqs of this tune and also cause for the lower freqs to duck under the noise (making them unstable in response to the harsh highs). It is easy to hear this even in the staring seconds of the track.
A good way to stop this from happening is to make sure when adding elements to your track make sure that EVERY sound doesn't peak/even get near -0db. Try not to set any sound higher than your kick as it is the drive of your beat. I personelly keep everything under -6db but I aslo master my tracks which make up for the lack of loudness/volume level.
I would like to go on about the rest of the technical difficulties of the track but I feel asthough i've said too much already.
At anyrate, this song has tons of good ideas generally! I'm sure everyone else as well as myself would like to see these ideas put in tune with the proper technicalities.
If you ever have any questions on the technical or general aspects of production feel free to indox me.

|Mindcircus by Churpenstein|
|YES! Liquid Drum & Beast. Lets go!. Love the sounds you used. Reverb is properly done. Massive breakdown. Automation is on point on that bass. This is EXACTLY what im talkin about with my last review on your last track. There is little to no space for the mind to wonder aswell as space in the stereo arrangment. Woop...Woop...Woop, love that sound. And I have to say the drum breaks are intense. Automation smh is serious! Really like this tune. Another classic Churptionary tune. Just when I think you may be getina little rusty. You pump some jams like this one. Cheers playa!

|(response from artist) WOOW I like me some revs like this :). I really paid attention to the verbs on this one...great pointer....sounds alot fuller for sure. Ima keep working on perfecting that. Gonna stay in this time...I feel like I\'m back into it ;) Drums are my fav part to put together on any track....especially breaks. Thanks for the amazing rev :)|
|Going Through the Motions by Churpenstein|
|Very classy start. Reverse perc really carries thr drums through. Bass guitar along with the analogue'ish electro bass sounds A1(yes as in the steak sauce). Breakdown percs and fx are extra essential. Well place. The progression on this track is very well phrased. The drop around 3:50 was pretty damn random haha. I would've liked to hear more of a big build to that point. 4:50 is hands down my fav part. I really like that groove you had going there. Quality jam in general. Very well phrased. On the downside. I hear alot of empty space atmosphere wise that could very well be filled with delays, reverb, pads, etc.. I know you don't make music too often (or atleast don't upload it too often) so general fact the track is well progressed phrasing wise is always a plus in that fashion. Good to hear you pump out a tune every now and then again playa. Always looking foward to your next one. Cheers.

|(response from artist) GGGGGGgggggg!!! Some very valid points. Always like your critics they are always right on! I re uploaded this one with a few minor edits...take a listen and let me know what you think if you have a min. Gotta work on filling up my tracks on the next go tho. Mucho appreciated thanks for the rev ;)|
|Riot by Chrysis|
|Love the intro! Huge sounds! Mayjor bass grooves. Really diggin the raw/kick door style you have on this tune. Straight nasty rebel king kong aggressive dragon punchin tune man. Consider the breakdown/roit fx and sounds dug. On the downside of things, the mix/master is raw. Sounds like there is little to no compression on the bass/basses and synths. Some lowend distortion especially on the kick drum when the real low bass comes in. The higher parameters of the eq (mainly 5000-8000) sound to be almost bitcrushed (the highend has a high sizzle/sshhh type distortion to it). This could be due to a various amounts of things. Best solution is to make sure the is no peaking and save alot of headroom (about -6db) for mastering afterwards. Jus throwin a couple pointers out there. Master aside, this song has alot of power behind it. I can hear the fun you had making it. Well donerz!

|PPB - We Are Angels by Raphaël|
|I love this! The drums are a little week for me but the melody is amazing. Very classy track ppb. The piano and pads go together perfectly. I've been listening to alot of smooth track as of late so this fits in perfectly with the vibe I have going right now. The arp is greatness! The triplet bass is a very cool/old school touch on this one. Only fret is the mixdown. I think it could be mixed better to bring out certain melodies and add more character to the track. Enjoyed it thoroughly never the less. Blissful arrangement.

|Stronger by Xtatica|
|ALWAYS!! Love your intros but this one sounds a little off beat at first. Did you put this together live? The bpm jumps all over the place. 1:18 it finally levels out. Ah i think I see it now. Were you trying to match the beat of with vocals. I don't think the vocals were intended for this particualr bpm. This sets off the whole ryhthm of the song when the vocals cut in. The beat itself is classic Xtatica to me. Lovely synths with great drum work and cool gating effects. Its just the vocals that really set me off balance with this one. If you fixed that, it would be another X-classic.

|(response from artist) yep you detected the difficulty I had dude - this one was High hat - kick - high hat - kick rather than - kick - bass n\' high hat - kick - Bass N hat.\r\n\r\nI wanted to introduce a little more DJ friendly in it - will look at the compressor gain and the vocs - I really appreciate the review and the listen dude as always....\r\n|
|Harmonic Headroom Original mix (trance and house hardstyle) by DJ Transaction|
|Really diggin that dutch lead there. Phasing on it is pretty cool too. Drums are crazy. Drums kinda have a industrial feel to them. Some of the synths could be introduced more smoothly than as is. The phrasing is a bit too sporatic/randmom at time being. I belive a song should tell you a story even if it doesn't have lyrics. Overall, its a cool upbeat jam. To be specific: The intro very sudden. I personally like to give the listener bit by bit until the major drop. 1:15, the uplifter even has your main lead behind before you drop the beat. This leaves me thinking "oh its just that same lead". I have to be honest man, im not to big a fan of this one here. I'm not a fan of hardstyle at all and somewhat a fan of trance as you already know. I have to agree with ppb, this one is very chaotic and seemingly randomly layered. Keep at it man. Looking foward to your next track.

|(response from artist) I tried to jam pack lots of stuff into the track and thats why it feels chaotic and i was going for that. but too bad some people dont like that so thats a fail then on my part. i wanted to give the listener a feel that this track is right now live on the dance floor. As for the intro, this is how im going to do it from now on. no more slow intros because i observed various people browsing music online. I see these people they just switch songs if they dont like the first 3 seconds of a song and this is sad because generally people dont give chances if intro is weak. SO i decided to bring in the melody and beat asap from now on. I do agree that musical phrasing is off at some spots. I released this track the same day i produced it. I was up all night burnt out working on this for like 8 hours or so drinking. Just going to polish this track and move on to next one. my next track going to be pure club style trance like tiesto and armin.|
|POTO- (An Insatiable Halloween Anthem) by Insatiable|
|YES! I get to put down a idj review on this. To start, the track has a big/main room analogue electro feel to it. Those saw synths are properly chained. You already know I LOVE 2:00. Thats when shit gets extra ultra. The build up before 3:00 was mucho bonkers but after it dropped I was disappointed. I thought sumin gangsta was about to pop off. I think you should drop that electro dirty bass riff that you have a 4:00 and 2:00 after a crazy build like that. Tis only how I see it. My only real fret about this track is that those high saw synths are too loud over the rest of the track. Especially in the first part of the track when they are a little more randomly placed. Thats about it thou pimpin, mayjah jam bruh. Always good to hear new ish from ya.
