    guess you could call this club house / trance or whatever but let me know what you think about the arrangement and sounds etc.etc. all feedbacks welcome, i know it isnt drum and bass but all the other forums are too much effort and i like this forum - check it out

    your kick sample has too much decay, it makes the track muddy. It needs to be a bit more punchy ;)
    like the concept tho :)

    really lovely track. this needs a trance female vocal. definitely take a look at replacing the kick... maybe this http://www.loopmasters.com/product/details/1315/Freemasons-100-Remix-Tools

    you might add a synth pluck with heavy reverb around transition points and playing around with some melodies, especially if you had a vocalist on this. maybe layer it with a piano lead.

    great song title too. really fits with the feel.
