New track: Castleview - Shine

Hey guys. I just released a new track that's going to be on a future album of mine. Stylistically, I'm aiming for a noisy but ethereal drone/ambient sound that I explored back when I first starting posting here, except that I've improved a lot since then.

Anyways, feel free to give me any feedback.

One suggestion.  I would try to move the echoing pulse drone a little further back in the mix and maybe bring that slower moving "melody" towards the front of the mix a little more.  It might add a more contrast between the back and front of your mix.  Maybe a bit more chorusing to bring warm mids in or maybe a delay pan to break the sound field up a bit.

Thanks! That's an interesting suggestion. I'm going to play around with it more before I finish the album and mess around with different mixes. I feel like I'm on to something but I just need to refine the compositions a little further.

The last couple of times I've tried making an album like this, I ended up failing to produce something noteworth and instead, went on to something else. This has been going a lot better so far.
