    Ez guys,
    Quick post on here for my latest, a bit of amen breakeage in this liquidy number.

    Looking for some crit if you have the time! :)

    Personally I quite like the piano parts and the bass. The b-line could maybe do with a boost in the midrange though, to give it a bit more character.

    The breaks could do with some more chopping I think, maybe less pitched snare in a couple of the cuts.

    what do you think?

    That bassline's so funky man, love this :2thumbs: I only have one real problem with the track, and I know it's silly, but I think that hihat keeping the beat in the intro and break really sticks out in a weird way for me. Not sure if it's too loud or if I just don't like the sample. Big choon otherwise mate

    Nice one for the feedback dude!
    The hihat is different to the one used in the rest of the breaks, just to keep time. Not much of a big deal to switch it out for something different. I'll give that a blast tonight :)

    LTJ Bukem (Good Looking label) qualities showing up here :)
    I'd let emerge some epic strings / pads. The synths beyond the lead instrument are somewhat faint.
