    I found a bit of inspiration recently and I've got this track nearly wrapped up:



    I'll be heading back into the studio later this week to polish it off. I'd really appreciate any feedback on the composition or mix down you may have.
    tia :)

    bump, anyone?
    Loads of views, no takers . . .

    Listening back to it I think I mastered it a bit heavily, its taken the punch out of the drums in the intro somewhat. Not a big fix though!

    Its a nice tune man, nice bits of progression aswell. I'd say it needs a few more ambient sounds throughout just to help it along if you know what I mean. Its my type of thing though, right up my street. Following you on soundcloud mate.

    The bass sounds dirty but not in a good way. I think it could use more processing. Do you split frequencies? If not it might help bring out some of the more high end of the bass, and some parallel processing could spice it up a bit. As far as the track as whole I think your on to something.
