    Those intro cymbals are pretty sick, haha. Seems like a silly thing to notice, but they are really intense and tight. Makes the atmosphere way tenser. Then the drop was really not what I was expecting given the intro; I'm not too sure about the sample you've chosen to use.... I think maybe it's a little wet (reverb wise) at the moment. Basses could use more variation. The basses sound good though, they've got nice character and weight, the bassline is just a tad repetitive as it is right now. Throw in some edits! Not bad at all, keep working at it man

    im gonna have to disagree with fortisimo here, im feeling the sample a lot. sounds decent. intros sick, drops really cool. only bit i dont like is the 1.50ish bit. other than that its sounding big, spy like!

    Kind of feeling this, but the part at 1:50 definitely needs work and a couple of edits thrown into the b-line wouldn't hurt, I think you should add something new to the breakdown so it doesn't sound just like the intro, and the second drop needs to add something new to the tune. Vocal sample was nice IMO.

    Progression and structure could use more thinking through, right now you've got a couple of parts thrown out one after another with little to glue them together like..

    What others said, really loved the dark drop with the vocal, but the part at 1:50 is indeed quite weird. As far as idea's go for after 1:50:
    -Try adding a low bass note pitching down instead of your second note: You now have "Low note, pause , High note" , but you could try "Low note, pause, jungle style sine wave based bass pitching down"
    -Try adding some more rides or some high passed pads to fill up and create variation
    -Try playing around with your drum patterns to create variation.
    -right before the drop you switch to a higher note, try implementing that in the melody?
    Anyway,
    Keep up the good work!

    Yeah man that sample works nice for me! Nice old schooly vibe on it but the tune itself has a nice modern edge, works well

    I would just say the tune as a whole perhaps sounds a little dry? But if you don't know me around here I am a bit of a reverb addict so I am probably wrong ;)

    Keep up the good work on this one man :)

    i have to say im kind of happy that so many of you found the time to listen to my track.. well i understand that its hard to listen to this kind of really beginer-ish tune especially when many of you have some pretty nice tracks on your portfolio but for me its really important to get some feedback from more experienced producers like you because i am learning that way... well back to my tune, i have to agree that the part after 1:50 its kinda off... ill have to work on that... i think that whole tune is missing some elements to fill it up so yeah if any of you have a mood to write some tips it would be cool :) (also i have to apologize for my english i hope my posts are readable)

    at 1:09 id hold that high bass note and ride it out, then pitch it down. i think thatdd fit much better with this hell of a roller. nice drums. intro needs to definitely feel more cinematic, theres too much empty space (not necessarily a bad thing) for the drums to stand out that much. add some air. atmos. try some reverb on the intro drums. the reverse high pitch note works but its harsh on maybe you could add some more musical pads or some shit and filter it to flow with the way youve set up the intro. i like it. the way the vocal responds and is cut up works really well, if you try messing with my idea about riding that bass note out it might sound even more dope.

    i see you kind of do ride the bass out at about 2:00. id try to make that shit work for the whole song. i can hear how id do it. but i like it the way it is now too.

    maybe add a breakdown. so that the drums keep going hard and then a breakdown with a lot of space and vocals just fly out into it. "good vibrations" with a big breakdown

    Sounds a bit tighter, but there's a limit to how much energy you ought to throw into one tune.

    I say well done, take what you've learned from doing this tune and the feedback you got on it, take that idea at 1:50 that I can hear didn't quite manage to materialize - and move on to the next one.

    Big tune there at the top, really like the contrast between the dark bass sounds and house vocal. If it were me I'd think about varying up those bass notes a bit, although maybe not coz often in tunes the repetition is what makes the note progressions memorable to people. The filtered out part at 2.20 is wicked too
