    First off, PROD sounds solid. BrkDwn is neat... overall, there are a lot of really cool sounds in here. Love the Acidic Leadwork.. it's quality.

    In all honesty though, your track is 'weak' without a SD.
    Dance music without a SD is annoying for me... I've got a couple House Tracks on vinyl that I bought even though they didn't have Snares but 9/10, I won't even bother listening to a "dance" piece if it doesn't have that crucial element.

    You've got no 'smack' to drive the track... the KD isn't enough... no matter how big you make it : )


    :cool stuff regardless:

    Pretty meaty track.
    Bet it sounds wicked over a PA.
    Back in my techno days I'd have really dug this track.
    Good work

    Great to see that a lot of people actually like this.
    Funny cause I'm not even an techno producer myself, I normally produce Drum & Bass, Dubstep and Hiphop.

    Im suspecting DnB is good training for writting house/techno. Done a few tracks in those genre's myself recentley and found it really easy to write compared to DnB. Almost depressed me for a while. Life eh? lol.

    DnB is easily the hardest genre to make imo and if you can make that then you can make anything. lol

    I wouldnt know if this would be accepted into the 'inner circle' of techno cos i dont listen to it very much but i know i really like this track. maybe a bit too fast for my liking but pretty sick none the less

    oh yeah... i REALLY REALLY REALLY wanna remix your 'emotional dubstep' track. PLEEEEASE LET MEEEEEEE!

    Thanks man, diggin' your tracks too. And yes you can do a remix, as soon as the track is finished, because I'm still not happy with how it is right now.
    But I would love to hear what you can make of it, what software do you use?

    I dig this track much, don't like the tones of the lead synth but the Kicks are good, could have been bassier (a little bit pitched down too imo)
    Also a bit of more work on these hi hats and a sidechained (to the kick obv) noise synth with lots of distortion would have made it pumpier and not wanting that feel of the snare.
    Gets a bit boring after a while, but this sounds huge on a big system for shizzle.

    All in all, good work mate, really apreciate people giving tryouts to this hard kind of music ;)

    Check, Spl - Lost frequency (The outside agenda remix), complete banger :slayer:

    Yeah I've got a neurofunk track coming up probably tomorrow, bouncing the files out now so I can do the mastering tomorrow.
    Then going to start at some 'technoid' type of tracks. :D
