This has been a project of a recently befriended producer that I believe has some potential, but is not quite promotable in its current state. I need some problems with it fixed by a veteran in the electronic music industry. The bulk of the work (~200 hours) having already been done, I'm looking for a fix in the $50 range.
1. The build up has potential and is powerful, but is simply too long with not enough transition. By cutting down on the intro and outtro the track should get an approximate length of ~3:00.
2. The build-in (1:00 to 2:00) needs some work up done and transition more smoothly into the Qlimax.
3. The Qlimax, starting at 2:08 but reaching peak at 2:35 should have a lot more emphasis on the melody (the Pachelbel strings), and the outtro can be cut down to a second or 10.
4. It being Dutch hardstyle, I want a less "clear" (and more elongated) bass line. A "The Pitcher" or "Headhunterz" type bass would work wonders. As it stands, the kick synergizes with the melody quite nicely, but the bass does not (it actually takes over most of the track). These need to be more in tune.
Please include any suggestions in a PM and samples of previous work. I'm looking for talented artists to hopefully build a long-term business association with, including the production of full tracks down the line.
