    So, this is a try at some experimental "Burial like" Dubstep.
    Full of crackles, distorded and strange drums, but I like it the way it is right now. (I might hate it in a few days ;D )
    I appreciate all comments and critics, but I prefer not to change anything to this track (;

    First impressions, very nice.
    Not in love with the high stabby synth. Could come down a bit in level as it's quite stabbing/piercing if I crank the volume.

    You brought in some extra percussion at the end (4:18 or so) which was nice and could have come in earlier? Perhaps for me you could have experimented a bit more in this area, oddball percussion, and relied a little less on that high stab.

    But hey....I like the underlying vibe. Nice one.

    Have to agree with ol Subprime here, good ideas but the stabby sound is way too high!

    It's good to hear you experimenting and finding new intuitive ways to create sounds, I love it when I find something new!

    EDIT: I'm not gonna say it on this track, cos chances are you already know what I'm thinking
