Hey there @returnnull
Hope you're handling this quarantine situation well & that you're doing good.
Stay safe at home as much as you can
Nice track but just too polite !
Your kick is very sharp & clean with high transients, you should try to lower the pitch, send it to a return channel with a compressor side chained to the kick placed before a spring reverb or the echo effect in live + a reverb then send back the return channel audio to a new audio track and adjust & blend the levels to create a rumble effect. Not necessarily heavy like in hard techno, it can be more subtle but it will give a different feel to the track. You can also use EQ & filters on the receiving audio channel to adjust the frequency of this rumble effect.
You could also add a drone layer to the track to keep this dark techno atmosphere going.
The hats used as rides should be there only to give a sense of rhythm, almost subliminal & just needed for the listener mind, they are too much clean & in the front at the moment IMO.
Adding other percussive effects & ear candies could also enhance the track, it's a bit linear with the dominant rides & claps, the drums during transition moments are nice.
I like the bass line and the movement & rhythm it gives to the track. You have also some support bass synths in a higher range, watch out with the clarity & levels of those. The track is almost like dueling between "darkness & light" feel, it's a nice counter effect but for me it's loosing weight & impact when it's becoming too bright.
This 303 type acid line is extremely "polite" and again too much clarity & levels IMO. Try to add some grit & dirtiness to it using saturation, distortion & reverb and leveling it down, it should "accommodate" & support the track, not take the first place.
Nice sounding synths but you could make them really more huge by using more reverb & delays and use automation on those effects, I would perhaps add another layer to the main lead synth pitched down at a lower octave, for the same reason as mentioned before, flirting between darkness & light but for me this one needs to be a bit more darker than it is now.
Mixing wise, issues are coming from the above, get back to your source sounds & levels and try to play with effects, then it will be more easy to blend all parts together I think, you can hear & identify too easily the different parts at this stage, not fully working at a all right now IMO.
But yes, nice track & musical ideas in there, you can play around & develop this one further, might be a very good one to experiment with effects too.
Take care & keep it up, we'll get through those crazy times, meanwhile stay home as much as you can and therefore music is your friend
