nice track.

some minor lacks in mastering (eg. the lead is a bit to prominent in the mix) and overall tracking technique.
the arrangement is well structured but therefore also rather predictable.
but even though there are some flaws, i absolutely like this tune, so i afterall i have to second n1k-o: nice track! :)

Pumping start of the track, although the bassline is a bit boring and the theme could start earlier. Great filterwork, a good one afterall, but I miss the spark a bit.

nice track. good drive, bobbing beat... sweet use of native FX, filter as mentioned but also the reverb, delay and distortion gives this track a lot of it's flavour... Im not that into this genre so I can't judge the arrangement but it seems fine but I kind of miss a more extravagant outro come to think of Blazing Stars and such ;) Well, in my opinion this one's one of your more cohesive entries to date...

Oo funky groovy. Great rhythm you have going. The bass sample at the beginning doesnt appear to be a central part of the track at first. It morphs and changes nicely with the beat. From pattern 34 onward is very cool sound. My only complaint might be the slow early development but that is usually how this style of music progresses. Overall a well structured, well done, great sounding track. Nice work.

Thanks @ all for your feedback.
Everything you wrote is true. It's a nice track :-) - but it suffers from some flaws technically and in structure.
I also feel that the spark is missing somehow (like Knetter said).
The reason for that is, that after the breakdown in the middle part i would have loved to get that track pushed to a "Blazar like" final, but i did not find an adequate sample that had enough energy to provide.
So the "final" is more a compromise than the "real deal".

Very nice track, definitly one of my favourites. You did the mastering very good. I like the break down..

Most of these comments already mentions my personal thoughts and criticism about structure and mix balance etc. etc.
But it's still definitely one of the better ones this round. I liked it a lot. :)
