    you know, i would say it sounds a bit clearer/crisper than some of the older ones. intro is solid, build is very interesting! drop is nice, could have a little more impact. drums sound good and i like the bassline quite a bit, it's pretty wild. i will have to listen to this on my system later...

    Really like your tune man.
    And because I really like it I'll say the production isn't quite top of the top draw. Not too sure what to suggest. Bit more definition around the drop? The bass after the drop could be thrust dry into my earhole.
    I gotta stop drinking.
    Sprinklestep is doing my head in.
    In a good way.
    And the next one. You got some good sounds here. On your playlist.
    Oh my.
    Bubble boy has it.
    It's just your ear for the final mix down, and getting everything balanced and in order. That's stopping this being Class A for my ears..
    Bubble boy was the shit tho.
    Mechani...you got a smile on my face.
    Ear for a tune. You've got it. I may be drunk, but I was really enjoying the 'trees'.
    Vincent van fuckin count me in as a fan....
    Lovely stuff man.
    Just the final mixing/polish as I said. .....not quite.......sort your shit out boy!!!

    Actually that's not a good sign!?

    top marks for the reply mate
    and for the enthusiasm ha
    really appreciate the feedback, i find it very hard to get any feedback anywhere and i dont know anyone into this kinda stuff
    the tunes you heard are the only ones i have done, so your comments give me a bit more focus as to where those tunes are lacking.
    coming from a band kinda background, its a whole different ballgame trying to express speed/intensity/power/subtlety and dynamics that make 'dance' music effective, but the last 12 weeks i have been writing these songs I have learnt more about production than the last 2 years, and well you know....fuck sleep!! haha
    thanks for your time and enthusiasm dude
    im a frother like you seem to be
    good work

    Liking this, got a nice groove going on. The revolving bassline is nice but as others have mentioned the drop doesn't have as much impact as I'd like.

    The intro is cool, gives a real live feeling. Good buildup of the drums. Good variation of the bassline. The breakdown is a nice touch too.

    The mix sounds good on my monitors, very good placement of the sounds. Top job!

    Kick-ass track. The bass could evolve a little as it progresses, but the beats and intro are solid.
