    Just finished this one, its not my usual 175bpmer...but still has the same liquid vibes, so think its worth a post here. the mixdown isn't perfect, but its about as good as i could get it. I'd love to hear any comments, positive/negative feedback is welcome as always. (if u want to download the file, u can get it on this fanpage https://www.facebook.com/hughhardiemusic)

    Look at the drums' mixdown, the little drum roll before the drops (and around 02:42) could make a much larger impact IMO.

    Hats and most of the percs sound a bit muddy to me as well, could crisp them up a bit and bring them forwards in the mix.

    Not quite my cuppa but sounds pretty good all in all. The Breakdown was nice but the tune sounds very same'y after the second drop.

    Like the old school pads, could do something more with those.

    cheers for the feedback, yea i was having an issue with those hats, it was hard to bring em forward without compromising the low ends, maybe there was too much of it at once so none of it was defined enough, theres a couple of breaks, then some programmed hats, then a shaker loop too. u think the roll should be louder? i made it purposefully quieter than the drop so it would have more impact when the beat kicks in.
