    Hey guys, on this one going for a deep dirty deb style with a slight ragga twist to it! It's by no means completed so i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how i could make it better?



    Cheers!

    Sounds pretty wicked man. I really like the flow once it drops. Nice bassline.

    Some nitpicks:
    Not a huge fan of the effects at the start, they don't really blend into the track well.
    Hi hats are hard panned to the left, is that intentional? Sounds a bit silly. They are also a bit static feeling to me, and perhaps a slight bit too prominent in the mix.

    intro sounds good - agree with the fx being a bit loud - need to sit behind the drumline a bit more - drop comes in nice but would like to hear a nice hard sub line at the end of maybe every 16 bars- also drum line doesnt change much - some added breaks in the mix could really carry some of the weight - good start tho - where is the vocal from?
    here is some of my ragga

    A ragga sample pack I found a while back. Google: "Reggae Sample Pack-Acapellas.Classic Voices.Horns.Drums.Stabs.etc.rar"

    always like some ragga influence!
    maybe yeah vary the drums a bit, and the bass gets a bit boring after a while...
    but want to see how this turns out!

    Hey!

    It sounds very good, but couple of things:
    The effect in the intro is too loud and a bit repetitive, i think that it just need one variation here and there and it will be perfect.
    For the core of the track, the bass i a little bit repetitive too, maybe some little effect on it will be good: some reverb with a lfo or something.

    Good luck its good!

    I enjoyed this tune man :)

    Agree with some stuff that has already been said. I thought the intro effects were sick but they do sort of overpower the drums! So bring them down a bit.

    I think the bass isn't to repetitive. Maybe just add a break down and get a little bit of bass variation in there :)

    Love the vocals, thought percs were good. Nice one!
