    Such a wicked song, hope I didn't manage to kill it too much....

    Thoughts? I'm still struggling with EQing and mixing it down to be honest.

    Like this song butthe drums could be more interesting like add more high hats, percussion and a breaks beat loop thats had all the lows EQ'd out anyway keep up the good work man!

    sounding ok but you really need to clean up the sample from the tune i can here parts of the drum track comin thru and its not soundin nice
    good ideas but needs a fair bit of work
    id try an search round for an accapela and an instrumental if possible to get ur samples but obviously that mite not be easy
    anyway good start keep at it

    cheers guys, much appreciated. Yeah the sample was a ball ache, couldnt find the acapella anywhere so tried to cut out the frequencies, don't have any monitors so mixing down through headphones was a pisstake!
