    I loved I pretty much liked the intro on this one! I think you could get a bigger drop, though. The track is pretty solid, I loved the bass too! Keep it up, man, this is a soon to be banger!

    Think your drop could get crazier. A few extra notes to get it active and pumping.

    Cool track though and sounds good to me production wise!

    Love it : ), the intro is lacking something so far, love the bass though.

    Try jumping around with the octaves.
    The drums are sounding fantastic but they need a little more variety to keep them interesting.

    Sick tune man. Intro isnt to my tastes, but that bass us a killer.

    Try some variation with bassline and break a bit more, not just the synths. And if you mix the fill layers of the break a bit louder it would sound way more tricky.

    I reckon the arp section that starts from the beginning needs something to accompany it. It's a little lost on its own. Maybe a string, vocal sample, ???

    Right just given it a little update, boosted the volume of the little fills throughout the track, and added some more ambiance and pads to the intro and throughout.

    Thank you bro. I still think I need to do something more with the section before the central breakdown so might see if something like that works there :)

    Noticed it was playing the first edit through my phone, but with the new waveform? Not bad soundcloud. Should be all sorted now :)
