    Hello guys,

    I just came back from a long break from music production (got discouraged due to burnout and my music not gaining much attention :-( ) , decided to work on something new and fresh, and this is what I came up with :



    I'm trying to inovate by mixing differet genres, orchestral and melodic with trap music, without exceeding 2:30mins max, it's bit complicated since you don't have much space to build up the strings.

    I did the mastering myself, I'm still amateurish in that aspect, any feedback to improve the mastering will be welcomed (don't destroy me).

    Nice one @elias2tife :bow:
    Me likes that you combine/mixing different genres,orchestral and melodic with trap music.
    If done right as in your track it is always good IMO.

    ^ I love that you blend strings with 808's /trap style beats, my suggestion is to also create Strong music themes/leading voice melodies in your tracks & what better way to do this with solo strings ? :winker:,a solo violin or cello line with good legato/portamento performance would bring to your tracks even more Emotion & nice vibes :wink:
    To conclude keep up the good work,thanks for sharing & have a great day ! :bow::bow::bow:

    Thank you so much for the detailed feedback, I really appreciate it, the track was made taking in consideration doing a collab with a vocalist, it does need something to lead the hearing focus. Hopefully I'll find one soon :yes:

    Unfortunately, I don't see any particular progress in your works. They're almost the same thing. You pick a harmonic minor key obsessively by chance and put some notes by chance, stick them together and mix with some noises and drums. Your work doesn't have a purpose, and it's more like someone wandering somewhere.:dunno:

    A little harsh.
    The strings remind me of 90's Massive Attack style but i think the track would benefit from a groovy/funkier bass line.
    Peppering a few vocal dubs here and there would add some interest too.

    Why should you care if your music not gaining much attention, just keep working at it, I play and make music because it is my passion and love. I don't care if anyyone else likes it, but then I guess i'm just lucky enough that those I play and perform for really do enjoy and like what I do. I've gone through many stages and musical genres throughout my long life, but always kept evolving, change is essential otherwise you stagnate and get into a rut.
    Just keep working at at, mixing genres and styles is great, you never know what it can give birth to. good luck
