This is a strange song I'll be honest. It's a trap song I started working on, but I wanted it to be slightly very acoustic sounding and very atmospheric. It's not like many trap songs I hear hahaha.

Key things to note about what I'm thinking of changing:
1). Extend the drop
2). General mixing in general, a bit with the breakdown maybe
3). Better Mastering

Okay here it is:



Also if anyone has name suggestions I'll gladly take those :D

i like it! it´s very different from most of the trap i´ve heard before, and that´s a good thing. i think you took the acoustic part pretty on the spot.
i think you pretty much got it summarized..
longer drop, and general mixing/mastering. and this is gold in my opinion!

This is quality, I really like the beats. I was actually a bit disappointed when they cut out at the drop at 2:33 :D

Nothing sounds really wrong with the mix to me (in headphones that is).

I always make a note when I think of good/weird/stupid titles for things, but nothing I've got fits this. Given how prominent that sample is it might be a bit odd to give the track a name that's completely unrelated.. I guess you could abbreviate it to Y2W if you like fun cryptic titles ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I am having a bit of trouble coming up with a second half of the drop hahaha but I'll do it no doubt, thanks for the compliments man!

Mix wise I think the hats need to be more present in the drop, maybe work on the break down reverb a bit. Whenever the shaker comes in I need to make it more apparent, maybe move it to the right and then filter the other "trappy" sets of hats whenever they play simultaneously.

Name wise I almost wanna name it "relic" or "primordial" or something, just because it sounds really otherworldly vibe-wise. Originally this was going to be a song about a monster hiding in fog haha but I ditched that idea. I am really feeling the whole Y2W or other cryptic titles though.. I'll probably think on that more haha. Thanks for the comment!

I absolutely adore this song! I love it when people experiment with a genre. And you sir, are doing this experiment correctly.

As for name suggestions... I would name this track "Out There", since it feels like something that would play when you'e searching for something.

Once again, you're doing an amazing job! Keep up the good work!  ;)

I really like that name title! It fits the kind of "dark, mysterious and unknown, vibe that's going on with the track!

Thank you for the compliments man!

Different, but good song. Sounds kind of like heavenstep? If I remember the genre correctly. To me the vocals are a bit too overpowering

Peteryunsie, which vocals seem overpowering?

That synth at the end may be a little bit too 'loud', but in general this track is good! I wouldn't change anything in my opinion. It is really different from other Trap songs, and that's why I like it.
