From an early age I showed affection for music. the age of 15 I started to get interested in hip hop music, I recorded the song on free beats and I wanted something more, I started making up my first hip-hop beats, later it spread to the rest of the music. Since 2010 I was interested with house and electronic dance music that has revolutionized the music industry, and then I found out that music is something that will follow me through life. Until much later that I learned about audiojungle and started uploading.

It sounds like it was made of loops, the looping stands out too much. The snares sound horribly flat, with no changes in velocity. The beat sounds too much compressed, it causes all other sounds to pulse. Some mainstream productions are often overcompressed this way, but here we’re not making the music for radio, so there is no point in fighting a loudness wars.

Take any successful track by ATB for example, and compare. You’ll hear what your production lacked. You were heading in a really nice direction, but the result was not proffesionally sounding yet.

And if you need to resort to the argument that there are many items with low quality, you’re answering the question yourself – your item quality was not that high. And the point is that the requirements went up a lot recently, so the low quality items are not longer acceptes like they used to be.

How many times did you listen to this track when polishing the mix up? It seems pretty monotonous just after a few listenings. It’s a good idea to listen to the track for several days, on different equipments and in different environments, trying to catch up any weaknesses to fix, before submitting the final version. It’s because the final stage of composing releases too much enthusiasm and causes the composer to miss too many flaws that become obvious after more repeatitive listening.

Thank you for your honest feedback, I will try to do better in the future, to hear the song a few days is a very good idea, so is this more would happen, thank you very much.

Yes, a similar problem as mine, but I got a lot of positive comments, and criticism, to go on even in strong rhythm.

Not a bad track, quite well mixed.
To my personal taste it’s a bit repetitive and the snare in the build-ups sounds like a machine-gun, so, maybe if you would switch to a drum machine with round robin or make some filter tricks, it would improve this.
Anyway, a good mix.
+1 that’s exactly what I thought as I listened to it. I’m pretty surprised that this has been rejected anyway. I feel like I heard worse tracks already on AJ. But first I’m not an expert in House music and second, it’s also a bit a matter of the point of view… For sure I wish you more luck with other tracks! :)
Thank you very much, thanks for the support, I’ll need in the future work :)

Here are what I thought why it may have been rejected. 1st point: The snare is used for the build up every time, and it gets very repetitive/fatiguing on the ears. Perhaps another synth line could come in with a varied gate time as it gets nearer to the start of a the section.

2nd point: I totally get that with this kind of music their is a repetitive element, the beat stays the focus and the melody holds it together, its what ‘clubbers’ love. But maybe around 1:30 and 2:45 some other element should come in to beef it up/create another level to the track.

My thinking is that perhaps some distant vocals could work really well with this, kinda like the Tiesto style.

Additionally while it has some great prospects, it could be seen to be more aimed as a track for general listening, and not something with as much commercial value to say a cinematic of corporate track.

Thats my thoughts anyway, what ever the out come I would not take it personally, I think with a little extra time you could make this track into something much better than it is with some simple changes and additions.

All the best!

Thank you for your reply, I will really consider what you said, really good, detailed and honest answer thanks again :)

Some of the side-chain sounds pretty aggressive and most of the synths are very “in your face”. Maybe would give a more “3D” effect if some would have some more reverb, some would be pushed more to the sides and make a space for everything there.
Anyway, a good mix.

Thank you very much, I will listen to advice and try to fix it, I will listen to advice from all the people and try to fix it to be professional and to upload again.

Also I did want to mention to everybody, I don’t really think as authors we really should expect to have any “rights”. This is envato’s perogative to choose the files they like and as one of there staff has mentioned before they don’t exist to provide a critique on compositions. They can’t possibly have the time to do that with all the massive amounts of submissions they receive. I for one am glad to hear that “hard rejections” are increasing. Although, I am surprised to hear that art-of-sound got a hard rejection since he is such an established author hear with a track record of quality tracks. I’d be interested in hearing what it was that was rejected.
