ShiZen - Serenity


i went to this fullon psytrance party yesterday so i was inspired by those typical israeli grooves, but i tried to make it not too much "carnaval" vibe-ig. again i used samples of tibetan chants that are pitched up so they sound childlike. don't be fooled by the title or the intro, the track is quite energetic in the climax. i tried to work on storytelling and playing with hot and cold. its the longest track i ever made, i even had to save a whole bunch of ideas for later songs or i would have had a 25 min track, so i guess my producer-dip is over :) i think this could become one of my best tracks ever. i'd like to hear yr opinions on the mix, i wonder if kick, bass, melodies and hihats are in balance on yr soundsystems. enjoy the ride...
edit1: slightly better mix, still far from perfect but i haven't got much time this week
edit2: another mix made during my studybreaks
edit3: uploaded better premastered version

really cool intro, chanting sounds pretty natural, no signs of pitchin, nice. bassline is really thight, very good sound, just like your kick and perc. first lead is maybe a bit too loud, but it has a very thick sound. your melodies are like always very good 'door elkaar geweven'. def. one of your better tracks, but i like your acidtrance a lil' more :)

AnnoM [be] - 11 years ago

oh, and the ending is fucking great. your last leadsynth, well damn!

Lapsus [be] - 11 years ago

wow, cool track, i like it alot, i really enjoyed listening to it.
good structure.
sounds pretty good here, kick is maybe a bit on the lower volume side, but for the rest, sounds good here :)

ShiZen [be] - 11 years ago

on most soundsystems my bass and kick are way too loud so i deliberately tried to keep their volume as low as possible, thats why i'm wondering how the song translates to yr systems. also the first time the last lead comes in i have a feeling its too much upfront, but it doesn't bother much because it's a cool sound.

Lapsus [be] - 11 years ago

i listened to it louder now, the kick just sounds sometimes a bit too 'far' like 4.55, but in general there is not too much problem with the sound as far as i can tell :)
my monitors are not that good (alesis m1active 620) so yeah, i'm not really a good reference:)

ShiZen [be] - 11 years ago

actually i'm even more interested in low budget hifi systems cause i feel if it sounds good on those it will sound good anywhere

Jeller [be] - 11 years ago

hmm kick and bassline is really too silent and too lowpassed imo, needs to be tighter!

for the rest very good song, good leads especially and nice melodies all over the track

the tibetan chants really spice it up

transynth [be] - 11 years ago

Reminds me some Vibe Tribe tracks, i like it prety much, but as mentioned your kick and low should have more boost..Out of that very good ideas and flow.Grtz

cunt [be] - 11 years ago

I'm not really into the song, but your
production is very nice; very clean.

good job on that!

tamansuara [be] - 11 years ago

i really like the old school sounds and the easy-ness in it, it reminds me of feesjes 8years ago, amai that was nice, but for me you could better speed things up a little bit, bring it closer together, specially before 4min, but hmmm really nice

ShiZen [be] - 11 years ago

i know it's a bit too long, but it has such an anthem feel about it i wanted to work out each idea as long as possible, also i don't like rearranging a song after i have the feeling it's finished, the end result always seems worse than the original idea. maybe in a few months or so.

Nightshade [be] - 10 years ago
