    Loving the FX and the Pads. That build up is fucking beast, haha. Nice drop - Tight production - only thing I'd say is get rid of that lame "Bass!" "rock this!" Vengeance vocal, and have some sliding bass, or something. Just my opinion, though. They're too overused. A nice track, indeed, though.

    ahahaha and so i was caught... so much for that. thanks for the advice modern, I see you've been making the rounds recently on this forum - good stuff! Anyways, I guess by using those overused vocal samples I was tricking myself into thinking I was going old skool. guess not. cheers again for the help

    not really oldskool, but good on its own :)
    also 1:10 - something like deathworm or some wobble preset from massive, I think it's familiar to many of us, so it'd be good if you changed it
    cheers :)

    actually - not a preset, something i made on my own and have been using rather heavily in my tracks. not a fan of using presets. thanks for the advice though, maybe ill tweak it a bit.

    amazing tune mate =)
    I expected something completeley different when I read old skool, but this suprised me in a very good way.
    It has already been said but I also don't like the bass coming in at 1:10.
    the rest is really really good.

    The tune is pretty nice, but you should turn up the volume on the kick I think, or add some more impact to it.. make it stand out more :)

    I like the wobble. I think you could tweek your hats a bit to give em more dynamics.
