Entering the Gareth Emery feat. Gavin Beach - Eye of the Storm remix competition and looking for feedback before I finish it. I haven't listened to the original yet, and only used the vocals and the bass (edited the sequence of both in some parts) from the original.
Trancelover, I am going to be brutally honest with you on this one (Im doing so because I generally enjoy listening to your tracks)
Overall man..it's a pretty decent track. I do feel that the intro is pretty long. The overall vibe is pretty bouncy but again, it seems like it takes to long to "get to the point".
ie: From the 15 second mark of your intro your piano starts and continues to play for 30 seconds more. It may not seem like alot but it is redundant.
I totally feel that if you cut out all the middle small piano tones (not eliminate them, ust reconsider the "chill" vibe and focus more on the "bouncy" side of the track) you could have a good banger there as you already have it.
Your high hats seem out of place at the beginning. I hear a fade out then they come back in at a very odd timing.
IMO, the 1:15 mark seems very dry and the a capella seems lost. I would challenge you to use that space for some tension and building into a drop. It would be more suited with the bounce of your chorus.
However...love the atmosphere leading up to it with the strings.
But damn...when the chorus comes in..it's a great sounding track man.
I also think you could add some more sustaining bass somewhere to keep it warm.
Vocals could also use a little brightening and a tad louder, at points it dips.
Love the half time at the end...with all this said...its a banger dood. Just again, tighten it up, I do believe it would be a much more impacting song without the chill vibe stuff.
Hope I dont sound like a dick there dood..really dig your shit. Just giving you the best piece of advice I could give.
