    I really like this Brex, that sub bass sounds and feels bang on. I think that sub you have at the start would compliment the track better if you kept it throughout and used the bass pulses for variation maybe?

    But the track maybe just goes over my head after the drop so that's subjective... I just really like that bassline at the start and feel it might fit better.

    Hey Brex! I like the overall vibe of the track. I think you did a good job with the vocals, I wouldn't mind hearing them more often in the track. Also I think you could add a bit more variations, it gets a little repetitive after a while. But I think you did a good job with that remix :)

    I love ur drums enviously, sound so well done. And sgree, the sub moves pretty cool -- dope! :) I suggest looking at the horns?/pads? that sometimes appear in the background. Also would add more variation (vocals) IMO but I guess u r after a minimal approach. Decent tune man! Need to listen again on a better sound system I'm back ... Cheers!
