    In keeping with the "cosmic" theme of the last song title...

    It's kinda neurofunk...ish...

    Any comments and critiques are welcome...

    I've tried to review a few peoples' tunes in here. I hope no one minds the bump.

    Of course, if you have an open/active thread and you comment in here, I'll make sure to return the favor...

    theres some really cool sounds in here man. you could do with a few bigger build ups to emphasise the drop. the kick and snare need some more low end too! i would cut around 100 hz out of your bass, and boost it on the kick and snare. soemthing like that anyway! some good ideas tho thats for sure

    Nice that you continue the cosmic theme :D Some nice angry bass in the intro, agree about emphasising the drop - the white noise comes in and I think it's gonna get heavy but it doesn't, think I'd beef up the drums at that point. Bass could be a bit louder imo . Like some of the fx and weird spooky stuff you got going on :) (though they could come down in the mix a bit to make more room for bass and drums?).

    I think the drums are too weak, get some more punch on those kicks and snares, and maybe get some breaks to make the drums flow more! keep at it! :)

    I like where you're going, just needs thicker sounds and some density. Dope writing :)
