    pads in intro are a bit loud-so are fx bleeps kinda drowning out the drums
    like the sample-drops good -like some elements of the bassline-not really mi cup though
    would like to hear some more fills in the drums-nice bass change up towards the end
    respect

    pretty decent mate. VERY grimey bassline, maybe a bit too grimey when the bass drops for a second time, sounds a bit too distorted. the drums are nice and punchy and the sample is also very nice. not sure about the strings in the intro, bit too 'nice' for such a dirty track, but it does kinda work. good stuff, keep at it.

    hello , well you made me get out my bed with this one, I streamed this on my iPhone, then played it on my headphones, then switched on my moniters:D
    I think the tune kicks arse! Reminded me raga twins to begin with, nice to hear some strings in this too, the mix sounds ok, I rekon if you pull your very low sub down in volume and push the drums up your mix will benifit, il try and have another listen in the week to be 100% but your getting much better and very quick, I have to big you up as your posting theese tunes up without owning moniters and the mixes are getting better, keep it up man, this one could easilly be your best tune.
    peace.

    Whoa. Loving the sample & gunshot samples. this is sounding phat as mate, well done.

    yea i agree the second drop is a little too grimey, could do with toning down a little.

    What are you using for your bassline?
