Another FL9 track for you to peruse through.

US2K Review: This begins with some panned right atmospheric strings playing a rhythmic melody. In the centre of the stereo field, a second techno lead joins the arrangement playing a very catchy riff line which sounds a little folk music influenced, and seems answer itself on every second repeat. This combination of musical ideas form a super hook for the mix.

Fourteen seconds into the mix a four on the floor bass drum pattern enters the arrangement, five seconds later a snare joins this drum pattern at first playing a periodic fill of two hits every four to eight bars, later changing to a role of accenting every second bass drum beat, the start of a main groove. A rather atmospheric reverse cymbal almost sounding like a human shout at the thirty nine seconds position in the mix adds some interest some interest to the music whilst providing the listener with the indication of a possible change to come. The techno lead plays a variation and a second later reverse cymbal and a drum fill announce a bridge/break section, this involves all percussion and drum instruments leaving the mix increasing emphasis on the harmony and melody. This is a very short bridge however, because a snare roll soon reintroduces the drum pattern but with at least one additional hi hat, an open on the half beat completing the four on the floor main groove. The lead techno synth also plays some variations to add further interest to the mix.

The new music arrangement continues with occasional snare fills to add variation, until the one minute thirty four seconds position, before the unusual reverse cymbal/whoosh sound from earlier to indicate another change in the flow is going to take place which actually takes place ten seconds later. This change is a bit of a surprise to the listener due to its subtlety, simply the lead synth sustains a note longer before playing a slight variation of the melody, although sounding 'fresher' as a result of the unexpected longer note.

Variations of the earlier theme continue with an occasional longer note, reverse cymbal or whoosh, until after the two minute forty three seconds position a series of more significant changes takes place. The first is the departure of the hi hat and then seventeen seconds later the drums leave the mix in succession and the techno lead plays a slower more 'broken' descriptive variation of the melody line used earlier. This enables the strings right of the stereo-field to gain importance and lead the mix temporarily.

By the three minute thirteen seconds position the original techno lead has reduced its role to the point of of playing occasional notes whilst the listener hears the reverse cymbals/whooshes once again, but they seem more atmospheric this time. The notes and sound effects are skilfully placed at this point to create a sense of intensity whilst the drum pattern is re-introduced with a few snare hits at first before a snare roll and a whoosh/cymbal or two announces the full return of the main drum groove for the mix, and another more exciting variation on the techno lead, whilst at the same time the strings right of the stereo-field play at a higher octave, for a very powerful/catchy finale which lasts until the four minute twenty eight seconds position where the final ending begins. This involves a snare roll and the drop of the hi hat and bass drum. The snare then plays some occasional hits whilst the techno lead plays a series of finish note, and there some atmospheric percussive claps, leading a sound that morphs from a whoosh, to a 'generator power down sound', to the reverse cymbal used earlier in the mix which almost sounds like a deep breath this time. Two hits of the percussive claps are heard last and their echo trail finish the mix after the total play-time of four minutes forty four seconds.

My evaluation of this intelligent techno composition is that it is expertly produced including the use of reverb, delay equalisation and other mastering techniques. Also the use of drum fills and other sound effects to announce changes is of Max Motion’s usual standard. The musical structure is intelligent and melody lines catchy and interesting at times, there is adequate variation but Max’s somehow has not managed to maintain interest to the extent of his better productions. Suggestions of improvement for this mix could have been a change of instrument or a bridge section near the middle of the mix maybe with alternative sound effects to the rest of the mix. My final score for this very competent techno trance production with folk music undertones, is 8 out of 10, it is well worth a listen to lovers of techno, especially those of you who enjoy the more intelligent styles such as Aphex Twin.

FL 10 track for ya Nige

US2K Review: This mix begins initially with what sounds like a percussive electronic bass sound of some type with reverb/delay applied to, it playing a dance rhythm right of the stereo-field. This is soon joined by a squelchy but modern sounding delay treated trance bass line in the centre of the mix that has a strong enough melody line to take lead. There are also squeaky sound effects going up and down in pitch and after ten seconds of play-time a four on the floor bass drum, half beat hi-hat, and accent snare for every second beat. For the first forty seconds of the mix, the melodic instrument arrangement and drum pattern described is the main hook and groove respectively. Variation is maintained via a higher octave accompaniment synth right of the stereo-field occasionally playing stabs to backup the right hand percussive pattern and answer the trance bass that itself occasionally plays notes up and down the scale keeping the overall musical theme very exciting to listen to. What is particularly clever is there so much going on but there is enough "space in the mix" and skillful mastering to ensure that there is not a muddy or cluttered sound. The result is a seriously danceable trance mix with all instruments answering each other from the start.

Things continue to get even better when a new clever synth pattern enters the around the forty-five seconds position in the mix. What happens next seems simple but to another producer it is fascinating because the new synth takes turns to take lead from the existing trance bass line, letting the trance bass "peep through" to lead again every so often, in what seems like a "musical game of hiding seek".

Around the one minute 13 seconds position some record scratch sound effects right of the stereo-field announce a change in the mix, and that the "the game of hiding seek" is coming to an end and the new synth is going to take full for ten seconds playing a catchy melody based on the earlier musical themes making the mix even more addictive.

The musical idea mentioned continues until the one minute thirty position where a significant change takes place, the trance bass line regains leadership but jointly with the snare playing a more complex pattern and the synth leading up to that point changes its role to occasionally play stabs at a higher octave that "answer" the bass line melody instead of having its own one. From this point there are variations on this theme, up to the two minute sixteen seconds position where the game of "musical hide and seek" begins again but with a more powerful drum pattern than the previous time.

Over time The notes of the trance bass and synth seem to get faster enhancing the excitement of listening to the mix. This continues up to the two minute fifty two seconds position after which a serious of sound effects including what sounds like a record scratch, squeaky door or analogue radio being tuned in announce a beginning of a very late and only obvious bridge section in this composition. The drum pattern is dropped from the mix leaving a snare to free style (including rolls and fills), and a "broken" (some notes intentionally removed) version of the melody line to create a feeling to the listener that the mix is getting ready to return to the full groove and hook, or even more fascinating trying to "get going" but is restrained in some way.

The pre coda bridge ends around the three minute three second position with the trance bass line lead returning first, announced by a high pitched squeaky sound effect, then the drum pattern joins it re-instate the main groove, but things are different this time there is another low octave bass line below the trance bass and different hook is formed, one that signifies a conclusion has started, there could be a musical key change but it is not always easy to tell because chord extensions can impersonate other scales, especially if a jazz combination is in use. The conclusion theme is kept interesting with various "good bye" note variations that answer all the musical themes from earlier. A slow scale on a high octave lead synth played at the three minute twenty-four seconds position for three seconds adds finality further to the music.

The musical themes mentioned continue to get faster again for seventeen seconds before a snare roll announces the departure of the low octave bass line, allowing the trance bass and various other synths from earlier to play a series of urgent sounding note scales and a discord to finish. Although the drums have been dropped a bass drum delay/echo tail also continues.

The final end is on a another falling in pitch squeak and a faded out synth pad sweep backed by the remaining bass drum echo reflections.

My evaluation of this mix is that it is intentionally structured (albeit the sole use of one breakdown/bridge near the end is unusual), and well produced, with some very catchy and danceable moments. The use of production and mastering techniques, including equalization, reverb, delay are up to Max’ s usual standard as is his use of sound effects, variations in melody lines and use of drum fills/rolls to maintain interest. Ten years ago a danceable mix of this length would normally have required a radio version, and possibly the score been affected, but a lot has changed over the years with the “trance movement”, and I am a more mature listener and reviewer now.

My final score is ten out of ten but I think some djs playing it may cut it to two minutes because there is a short section thereafter that would lose dancers interest, although I appreciate the composition as an excellent listen too. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys techno or trance, whether it be for dancing or listening. It is an excellent harmonic techno trance mix!

This is simply one of my mixes with the tacked on piano ending removed. I went mad with plugins like Vanguard, Nexus and had a ball. The third theme in the structure of course was mean to make the mix progressive trance what it did not work so here is a Rave track instead. I have included the mix (flp) file but so much bouncing of audio took place I have also included the bounced waves resulting in an 80 Meg file. sorry peeps. If you think it worth the effort and bandwidth to download you will get to see how I made the track, or at the very least some free samples like those you can buy at my shop http://www.soundloopsheaven.co.uk. They are all made with my blistered hands lol

US2K Review: Sorry no review or score as it is one of mine.

I finished this before I went into hospital. Although I have a hi hat loud in the mix I dare anyone to say this is not progressive trance. This time I think the piano works. The piano at the end of my last mix was tacked on so I agree with the negative feedback.

US2K Review: It is one of my own, so no review or score, unless someone wants to give some constructive criticism.

FL 10 track for ya Nige

US2K Review: This mix begins with an atmospheric air gush sound treated with reverb and flange, accompanied by a four on the floor with a bass drum sound that has excellent clarity in the mix. Interestingly enough, a cymbal playing hits you would normally expect a snare to make accompanies the bass drum pattern. After three seconds a modern sounding tech mid octave trance lead melody and "answering" techno bass line are faded in to form a danceable hook and set a main theme for the rest of the mix. This music theme remains addictive right up to the fifty-seven seconds position where the first bridge in the mix is reached.

The bridge section consists a lower octave variation of the lead without the bass line to answer or drive it. Four seconds into the bridge a long whoosh sound reintroduces the bass line whilst a new melody line more catchy than anything else before in the mix takes lead, this can be considered hook two. This lead continues up to the one-minute forty-eight second position where it is changed to play a more "broken up" variation of shorter notes to indicate another change is going to take place. This actually happens twenty seconds later in the form of a longer bridge initiated by a drum roll, after a which a half speed slightly "broken up" bass drum pattern accompanies a duet of synths playing an answer melody to the main theme whilst giving the listener a rest and preparing them for more dancing.

After the two minute twenty-five second position the bass drum returns, and shortly after a slower variation of hook two begins. This theme plays up to another whoosh at the two minute thirty-four second position, where the bass synth seems to gain important momentarily, before a second whoosh introduces a new change. The mix seems to speed up with the playing of numerous freestyle musical ideas based on the earlier hooks. The music continues to increase in energy especially at the point where a snare enters the mix first as a roll before becoming a secondary accent for every second bass drum beat.

The musical theme is contant until the three minute forty seven seconds position at which point an important bass drum fill swaps round the strong and weak beats in the mix making it sound "fresh" to the listener again. The same hook previous to the fill continues with a new vigour up to the four-minute forty second position at which point a sound like guitar feedback is used to announce a totally new synth sound and melody line replaces one of the existing ones. This seems to be ideal for a concluding coda for the mix. At the four minute fifty seconds position the mix begins to conclude when a whoosh sound leads to a slow breakdown of the drum begins with the bass drum playing "broken" intermittent beats and fills before leaving the mix entirely. The synthesiser melodies are left to continue the coda melody until a final whoosh and some pitch shifted or glided notes to a final scale and an important final note to end the mix after five minutes thirty seconds of play.

My evaluation of this mix is that it is well structured and produced. There are some very catchy melodies, and plenty of interesting variations. There is skillful use of sound effects and drum fills to maintain interest or announce changes in the mix. The arrangements and stereo positioning choice of instruments is spot on, the mix generally flows well. Studio engineering, including reverb, delay, equalization and other sound processing techniques are put to excellent use. The only slightly disappointment in the mix is that there sections in it that would possibly upset those who perceived it as a dance record. My final score is 9 out of 10. As a piece of techno in its own right it is excellent and it sent me on an adventure when I listened to it.

Well there is a huge Love Parade Sound with a Third Theme to Keep Things More Progressive Trance and Also to Help Dancers Lose There Addictions. The mix is 5 minutes but there is a chunk of silence for me to remove.

US2K Review: Sorry folks, there will be no review or score for this due to the fact it is one of mine.
