    Hi there folks!
    Here's my new track; Drugs!
    It's mainly darkstep dnb, but there's also a small liquid part in it. It really gives the feeling of a crazy trip your in turning from good to bad, and vice versa :p
    Anyway without further ado:



    Enjoy and please leave a comment!!

    Like the vinyl crackling and filtering in the intro. 8) You have some really impressive synthesis and drum programming. Although, I can't give you very specific advice on mixdown due to new speakers, but the mix is translating quite well over my system. I really like the chord progression on this one. Keep up the good work.

    at a few points the subbass overpowers the track, same goes for the main bassline.
    and I think you could also turn the volume for the drums up a little, they sound very distant.

    I realy like the liquid part!

    I agree the sub is super heavy on the liquid part, bit too much. The drum programming is rad! Good effort.

    I cannot help than to agree to this.
    I simply love a overpowering subbass. I am really into Mt Eden Dubstep. Maybe I should cut some highs though, as to make it rrrreeaaaally deep, but in general I want to create a liquid dubstep feeling, just quickened by the drum and bass drums. I'm trying to find the sound in between dubstep and liquid drum and bass, 'cause I love both of them ;)
    Anyway next time I'll pay some more attention to the loudness of the drums and the main synth (in this case the industrial bassline)
