    Got some good idea's there mate and good vibes, (have you been listening to logical progression by any chance!?) Think you could work on the drums a bit, maybe could do with more percussion in there, also from what I can hear you've only got 1 layer to your snare, try having one low snare with one rim shot and one clap all into 1 snare and maybe some other weird percussion for this sort of tune, quite minimal so you can get nice an experimental with it! hope this helps mate!

    im trying for the minimal thing just now so using a lot of claps instead of snares ill give layering them a bash see if i can get a nice er sound out of it....
    what about the bass line is it too much for such a chilled track?

    I'd say turn down the lfo rate and add more effects to the bass, seems a bit too wobbly for the track, with this sort of track your midrange bass aint as important as sampling and adding textures, all down to personal preference in the end mate, try listening to other minimal artists tracks and see what they do to help give you ideas.

    I like it, maybe you could just vary the lfo sometimes for variation, and like structure4 said, resample with some filter variations etc.

    perhaps, but I always like listening to tunes that disregard boundries. If you had that sound in your head then go for it. There's always the next tune.
