the beat is hitting all the right frequencys but it sounds over compressed to me.... loving the background sounds... very atmospheric...


personally sounds like 2 seperate tunes, the intro was so uplifting and euphoric but then it dropped to some dirty ting! pretty cool but sounds like 2 different tunes

Cheers for the feedback

About the beat, over compressed? do you mean this during the intro or at the drop? i can see where you your coming from at the drop though, think thats all that needs to change about then it should sound good :D

2 seperate tunes, i can see what your saying here but ive heard this alot in drum and bass, i like it though as it gives an edge the song, later in the tune ill bring in some elements of the intro, hopefully itll help it flow a bit more with the rest.

thanks for the feedback! ill work on it :)

Just as a example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ggyr8CIemuk - This tune has the kind of effect i was going for

ah i see what u mean. well the beat sounds nice and clean on the intro.. that whole intro sounds really good actually, but after the drop the beat sounds too weak to carry a bassline... bass was a bit too simple, if you were going for calyx and teebee style bassline then you need to work on ur bass alot ! ;p

intro sounds really nice man but i think u need to fill ur drums out a bit, they sound quite good but maybe get a break in there. also the bass needs some work

I was expecting a full-length song, but thats alright. Quality is nice, piano in the background is a nice touch. Love the tight feeling of the beat, the shakers or whatever they are should be turned up a little. Bass is nicely set, like a cake ready to come out the oven. I'd turn up the piano a little, give it a little more mid or mid-low freq's, other than that man, sounds good. Maybe the cymbals are a little high, but yeah, good.
Keep it up!
