    new thing im still working with,
    needs more fills and bass, and i need to fix the odd peaks in the bass also but its a good sketch,
    also needs a proper intro and better breakdown, but like i said its rough :shades:

    Intro sounds like a dirty record...was that intended or is it a poor sample? Either way I think it works well.... Sounds like you are panning your drums from right to left.....should that be happening? I'm not sure about it myself..

    Bass is clipping pretty bad (but you know about that)

    It's got a nice old skool flavour, feels abit slow to me, but then again I guess old skool jungle was only around the 160bpm mark so it kinda works I guess. Like you said, it needs some more fills and breaks to keep it interesting, but I like what you got so far mate.

    Haha I just looked into the paning in the drums, for some reason there was a chorus on the drums bus, don't make beats while high. Yeah the samples were meant be to like that. It's very rough at this stage but thanks for the feedback guys. I defiantly just gotta sit down and take it to the next level with my production stuff, I'm just so lazy. Im waiting on my maschine to arrive before I have a real good sit down and sample session so I can get some real beats going.
