    Ez all.. Been really lame of late, and had major writers block, so just been giving the whole scene a bit of a wide berth.
    Finally think im kind of back, so thought i'd up a clip of what ive come up with for some opinions and critique etc



    All feedback and ideas appreciated :)

    Ah ye, writers block is a dick. I've had my periods of that as well unfortunately... The tune sounds great however I'm digging the deep vibes! If I where to give any critique, I think that you could perhaps cut back on the vocals, fx and synth stabs in the intro or do something different with them for the sake of variation.

    And grats for breaking the block!

    Thanks man :)

    Yeah the intro was kind of rushed, built the breakdown and rest of the track first, so it was kind of just bolted on. Will see what i can come up with

    Cool track man i really like it! personally i think the swirly fx sound should be a bit more in the background and less frequent. I think the synth stabs and the bassline work together great, i do like my stuff fairly minimal though

    Thanks bro. It was part of the pad I used and had a mare trying to remove it without killing the whole pad

    Too uniform motion for me, I guess. I miss drum fills and some element beyond the standard.
    A track which parks the crowd on the floor in anticipation of the next track.
    Technically properly for sure.
