Re: [ House / EDM ] SHM & Laidback Luke - Leave The World Behind (Remix) UPDATE
A lot of this is subjective because it's very different from my workflow and creative process so my criticism my not be helpful for what you are wanting to make.
You're doing a good job building tension though much slower than I personally would, but the release of the tension has been a little confusing. Most of the time it just led back to the main pattern. There was one moment at 3:58 where you had a good idea for releasing the tension, but it felt a little underwhelming to me.
The track is plenty serviceable however and only that one section was jarring. Your beat, instruments, and vocals fit together well. I'd turn the vocals down a bit so they can fit in the mix a little more organically. Good job though!
