    I can't wait to hear that fill out a bit more. After the first drop I would lower the volume of the "odd" hi hats to give it more of a shuffle feel (or just to sound more natural.) That is a stylistic choice though as, personally, I don't really like loud hats. Other than that you may want to add the sambass wooshes, reverbs, and little details that make it so fun while tying the phrases together, keeping it moving forward. Those little builds are very effective it just wants to be passed onto the other elements of the track. Shouldn't be too tricky since all the sections in there are solid.

    Cheers for the feedback guys. I am loving writing this one - it has a nice summer vibe to it. Very good points Lucider. Version 2 shouldnt be too long coming :)
