    Finishid this tune after days of work, been focusing on it so much that i probarly tunneled out something that sounds wrong, if you notice anything do tell.

    As per usual any feedback is appreciated, even the harsh one.

    Thinking that i maybe should drop the solo, solos dont really fit into dnb does it?

    Cheers

    pretty cool track you got there, its a really happy song. A little to repetitive in my opinion.

    ^^^I agree with this

    bit cheesy for my tastes and that woody snare doesnt really suit this type of tune imo

    But sounds well put together and mixed

    How do you counter making it less repetitive?

    Like in this track i came up with the refrain melody and chords from start then i made different chords for verse/hook aswell as some support melodys to fatten it up.

    My Current layout is usually(is that wrong for dnb?):
    Intro->Refrain->verse->refrain->hook->outro

    I mean problem is if you want the song to "stick" to your head and be a hit repetition happens, i guess its hard to make good variation without vocals. Any tips are appreciated and thanks for the feedback.

    Duck step that name get me every time.
    Snare is too loud.
    A tip research this for more variation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadence_(music)
    You could also apply filter and efx to the lead to add more interesting evolving sound design to the lead and bass.
