    Something else than what I normally do.
    I had a hard time trying to mix it, and it is still not completely how I want it, but I forgot to save :cry:

    Anyway, this is the "demo version", all suggestions are welcome.

    Kick needs to come through the mix more, try compressing or sidechaining it. I also think the snare needs to be a little thicker.

    Also you should mix up your synth riff a little, gets repetative pretty quickly.

    That being said, you've got some good bass work going on in there, and a good structure to work with.

    I'm now going to google "sidechaining" ;D
    One thing I still wanted to work on were my drums, so that's very true.

    Basically sidechaining your kicks will duck the bass out for a split second just enough for your kick to come through the mix. Although, if you compressed the kicks correctly this would also have the desired effect.
