    Nicely put together and all the drum edits must have taken some work. Must admit I was waiting for a kick and snare to come in as I thought the initial drums were filtered as an intro kinda thing. The punch never really arrived. Main sample also is a little loud for me and gets a bit repetitive.

    Like the switch up of the drums around 2:30. Has plenty of energy throughout which is nice work.

    Hey, nice track, quite smooth !

    I agree with that, I actually really like how the snare is sounding, too bad it's not a bit more in the foreground. The kick is barely audible on my side, it's seems like the whole track is quite light in the low range.
    Maybe the drumbreaks at 0:44 and 2:30 could be a bit louder as well, to have more impact on the switch.

    Hope that helps :)

    thank you I'll be sure to keep that in mind next time! And about the low end I couldn't get anything going except the sub, the sample is pretty hard to work with so I can barely fill in the low range :confused:

    Really uplifting track, love those jazzy vibes! Kick snare can indeed be a bit more visible, but I do not have other critics for now. Buildup is also subtle and fitting for this track. Good Job

    Echoing what others have said i think the sample could be used more sparingly throughout rather than just repeating.

    I like the drums but would have probably excluded them from the intro.

    Other than that I think the mix could be better some elements are too loud for my liking
