    Hey guys,

    After like a year of not doing anything I finally got back into producing.
    I'm a complete beginner and would love to get some feedback.

    This has loads of potential man! Maybe put some more punch into the subbass, and shuffle up the drums a wee bit, lots of layers of cymbals at different velocities can add alot! I really like the arp/melody though! Possibly work on finding a better snare sample to use aswell, something a bit more percussive/tuned usually sounds great with liquid stuff. Diggin the overall sound though, good work dude!

    Here's a new version of the song.
    I noticed that the melody had a lot of reverb, so I got rid of that aswell.

    Structure and variation is pretty good. Vocal is really nice, where did you get it?

    Piano chords are a bit basic. I would try and write a more interesting piano part that isn't just one first inversion triad on the first beat of every bar. Your chord changes are a bit fast too: one chord per bar gets a bit stale quickly when you only have 4 chords.

    Sound design is all fine, good work there, misti already mentioned the snare.

    I just found the flp of this track and decided that I want to continue working on it(after 2 years).
    Apologies for abandoning this thread.

    Thank you for the feedback (I know I'm 2 years late lol)

    Slightly updated version of the track:
    soundcloud.com/aetherialistic/v1-1/s-0ZWeS

    I've been trying to mess around with the piano chords but I can't really figure out what to do with them.
    I'm aware there's no breakdown in the track atm but I'll be adding that soon.
