    Made this jump-up tune. It's my third one ever. Let me know what you think about it. If you like it, please <3 it at SoundCloud :)

    Have a good day all!

    Your kick needs to be more prominent in your mix, drop the levels of the other elements in the mix to bring that kick up front.
    Its also repetitive. Drum variations and note changes go a long way.
    Keep practicing on your mixing, and never give up
    Practicing is key

    Thanks for the valuable advice :) Yeah well I kept the kick low on purpose. In most Jump up tracks, the kick is almost absent. That's why. But i'm still struggling if i'd make it harder next time or keep it this way... And the variation, yeah you vould be right on that! ty! Hopefully the rest is bearable :p

    Wooh! Go Dutch people!

    Anyhow, I'm not really digging the structure (Or lack there of) in the track, or is it normal for jump up tunes not to have a proper breakdown and such? (Not really familiar with the genre either though! Sorry for that.)

    Haha!
    Yeah well, it's indeed the typical jump up structure. It has almost the same structure as the track called Supreme Being - Got Milk? VIP
