    Intro doesnt have anything to keep the listeners attention it just seems like an intro was whipped together and hurried to the drop.

    Intro hats sound a bit squishy and sloppy. Some eq would help . . . . Filter sweeps for high resonant frequencies too.
    All the drums could use some eq love
    OK. . . . . .(it dropped) If mixed down properly, this would be nasty as hell. Get rid of everything on every track and start over with the mix down. focus on JUST gain, eq, then panning. once youve gotten it as good as you can with just those, then introduce the compressors, limiters and reverb. (get everything fitting right with EACH OTHER, then place them in their OWN SPACE in the mix.) Do not put anything on the master

    You can get that mid bass way nastier. I would do some filter sweeps to find any troublesome frequencies, after cutting out those harsh little twats, I found multiband compression works well with those high harmonic squeal basses because you can dial in on specific frequencies to keep them from getting out of hand while still squishing the bag out of it for maximum gain.

    That piercing on the intro hats needs a lil cut, but that little break in it is cool. Build up sounds could be a use a little more character but DAMN! that DROP

    Nice tracks you have there! Followed you on soundcloud.

    You don't happen to be willing to share with which vst's you created your wobbly sounds do you? Been trying to create similar sounds for a while now.
