    It's just a bit dull. Try boosting the highs a bit and taking off like -1.8dB @ ~800Hz.
    That will get rid of the "muddy" feel in the chune.

    feeling this, fills are wicked! good use of the breaks. the bass is a little muddy with the kicks i find. maybe a more powerfull kick would be cool too. sounding good though, keep it going

    Maybe i would suggest to bring down the volume of the bass or add some high end to the synths! Maybe that will bring more life into the track.
    Really nice rolling tune!

    I like everything about this tune apart from the drums

    kick doesnt have much presence and the snare sounds too lowpassed, hi-hat sounds too rigid too

    all the other elements are dope tho

    Rough steps knocking clowns dead into the ozone, fast roll, keep you on your toes.

    .......

    I like it. Good composition (the bass carries the composition obviously). I like that there's an older Decoder/Dom and Roland-like darkstep feel to the whole thing, makes it appropriately dark.
