    (y) good track for home listening.

    Couple of observations:

    Bearing in mind it's def a listening track and not a banging dancefloor tune, maybe you might consider making it a bit less DJ friendly?? IE taking away the hi hats from the intro and replacing them with something a bit more unusual.

    Needs a more dramatic fill just before the bass comes in... one reversed cymbal sounds a bit week... maybe a small vocal sample or something....?

    On your main drum loop, there's a real tinny kinda jungle loop in the background - really needs to be gated!!!

    Overall mixdown could use some basic mastering... Waves L2 for example...

    cheers fella,
    yeah it definately needs a more dramatic break before the drop and i see what ur sayin about a vocal. was planning to put somethin in there, just gotta find somethin! whats this Wave L2? geussin its a masterin tool, ill look out for it. the loop behind the drums... r u on about the break? i was thinkin of changin the break, do u reckon i should just fiddle around with the one thats already there?

    cheers again
