[EDM] Sobia - Undecided

So I essentially made a mix of all my favorite genres to jam to. Starts with a trance/dance vibe, goes into a trap-ish song, hits you with that wub a lubba a dub dub, and then finishes off with a (what I think is a) nice piano orchestral thing. +points if you get the references in the song.

Had a unique set of challenges when mixing so many "unfinished songs" together and I'm now at the point where I've listened to it so many times that my ears feel tired and I'm having a rough time continuing.

Would seriously appreciate any sort of feedback on this. Been in a slump and unable to finish a song recently so any and all critique is appreciated. Song is currently private, so you can find it at the following link. Thanks gents!

Re: [EDM] Sobia - Undecided

Some sounds were a bit clipped/distorted, i.e. the mid range sound that begins at 2:36. Not sure if that's intentional, but it sounded wrong to me. It feels like you're trying to get as much volume as possible out of your tracks, and they're conflicting with each other and maybe even dipping in and out or sidechaining to make space.


I think there's way too much going on here. Less is more

Accurate. Most of those sounds have distortion on them on purpose though, including 2:36.

This song was almost literally "how loud can I make this without it sounding like complete shite?" I've put as much sidechain compression on some of the tracks as I could (otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it near that level of loudness) but I'm still kiiiind of learning this game.

I also like a lot going on. Not really a minimalist. Really enjoy have a lot to focus on. That being said, I'm also not trying to overdo it. Having a tough time finding that balance honestly.

I really, sincerely, do appreciate the feedback and welcome it. So honestly - thank you so much for taking the time to help.

And I really liked it. Especially moments like dubstep. Very cool mix.
