xm - Inversion of Sadness (TRANCE)


Trance. Piano. Strings. The usual. Female vocals would do well in this one, even if they were describing the birth of a baby elephant. No one would know it'd still sound sexy.

A dark buildup with some suspense but explodes later on into an orgiastic, energetic explosion of 100,000 kJ for one's ears.

Mix wise the bass over-run on the kick needs taming. Composition wise the track seemed to go in one direction, like a megamix of 3 different tracks, but slowly like a 12minute prog track. Sounds nice just needs more variation to keep the listeners interest.

the chords, or that arpeggio synth, around 3 minute mark sound off key or something- it sounds like babas adagio for strings spinning out on bad trip-that's a bad thing. you need a more consistent snare- i.e on the 2 and 4 beat, not only on the 4thbeat. get the basic beat right first- you needs hats and percussion as well- the middle section strings and pads sound alright- i'd work from that.
