    So this song is getting back to my roots with production. I always dreamed of making tracks like this when I use to dj. Certain almost generic dnb tracks where really fun to beat juggle back and forth and create whole new live mash ups. I believe this track would mix well with others. I also took a more minimalistic approach for this track, at least for me. The drums and the bass are the main focus and I tried really hard not shoving all the shit I possibly could in that still made a decent mix. Let me know what you thing and I apologize if I shamelessly promote.

    Yeah this is really sick! late 90's/early 00's dnb vibes :)

    Only slight criticism is that vocal sample before the drop sounds too dry, I would throw a few fx on and pitch it down a bit

    keep up the good work mate (y)

    aah that bass and reese bits! those drums.. awesome work
    would definitely try this in a mix to stir things up a bit
    I would normally say to turn up the bass a bit to hear that movement in there a bit more, but since you wanted the drums upfront, it's perfect as it is!


    Edit: noticed it's a free download! I'll really try to put this a mix of mine..

    This is the best track I have heard on this forum so far, both technically and creatively. Only this snare is too tinny for my taste but otherwise top-notch!

    very nice man. sick breaks with the heavy reese surges. big fan of tunes like this. the kick could perhaps cut through a tad more with some sidechaining or maybe more of it if their is some going on. other than that solid mix man. Here is my latest track, peep it if you get some time. this too was composed with a more minimal vibe as well. any feedback would be awesome!

    Thank you.
    Your track is very cool man. I'm not sure I like your lead that comes in every once in awhile but everything else sounds good.
