    hey,

    a clip from my newest project started this one up today and im quite happy, althought when it starts to gain energy i dont think it fits in i dunno maybe i should take a break but as usual any criticism feedback on anything is welcome

    thanks

    ***** version 2

    so I've lowered the reverse added a congo and played with the basses a little

    Aphrodite vibes on the change up, but not in that embarrassing wobble way ;)
    Good ideas in there man, whole thing sounds a bit dry but that may have been the sound you were after.

    It's very dry, so i'd go with a conga loop or something :)

    try some reverb with a really short tail on some of the elements, easy to go overboard though so keep an ear out for muddy verb mush.

    The reversed snare is too high in volume imo. First impression.

    switch up at 1.28 is really cool. theres lot of pottential here. my advice would be have another bar of the switch bit instead of going into tge steppy bit again. then go into the break. the switch builds the pace nicely and then you slow it down again, i think you should keep it switched up personally! hope that makes sense

    yeah man i think i get you. in that case id suggest having another bar of the switch bit beofre the steppy bit. i reckon it will keep it rolling! its fucking good tho man you should be proud of it

    i dunno man. if you play around with the pitch it could work? if you check my thread down the page thats what ive done on the second drop. not sure what people think tho. i reckon you should use the switch drums on the second drop though
