    absolutely love the intro, anything that has any north african feel to it always has my vote! :D

    I love the way in which you play with the melody and how it interwins with the singers...

    I do not think the subbass is too loud. If something is a bit too loud (or "bright" if you want) are the snares and especially the hats, I would add quite a lot of grit there...

    Other than that: this has potential, good luck mate :)

    A pleasure mate!

    Just one thing, my speakers are not brilliant so I might be missing quite a lot of sub-bass. Have you tried analysing it with a spectrum analyser to bit a visual feedback as well as a sound one?

    If you are on a Pc, I'd suggest Voxengo Snap, a very good freebie!

    Exactly, that's how I would define it! :D But yet again, it might be a matter of text - I tend to enjoy beats that do not have very extreme high frequencies. I am of the theory that we old gits have less tolerance to really high frequencies (probably due to all the hours I spent dancing disco in my youth with massive speakers two meters from my ears! :D

    Anyone else might find that those snares/hats are perfectly acceptable...

    different i like it.
    at first i was a bit hmm,
    but the bass fitted in with the track reli well.
    drums soundin nice, i think add some switch ups of bass and stuff in there got a good tune

    Very nice intro mate - great idea! Nice progressive style to the song which is good - always makes stuff alot less predictable. What I would say is that a)the bass needs to be a bit more prominent, and b)the snares and hi's definitely need eq'in - play the song loud and theyre really gonna hurt people ears! haha. Intro makes it for me really... Keep workin at it. If you have a chance take a look at my post and give me some feedback on mine if you could! Thanks.

    yeah its pretty cool, i reckon a distant train sample, "real world" or some rain sample would fit the tune nicley, it could add even more depth and character. i do like the high end of the snare alot.

    Nice one. I listened with my head a foot in front of my monitors and nothing was stabbing my ears or giving me a headache.
    Really liked the arrangement and the vocal sample, the bass. . . . all good.
