    Not too bad if you just started on dnb.

    I like the intro/break.
    The drop is a bit monotone and repetitive, the bassline could use 1 or 2 more sounds to further diversify. for example every 2 bars you could end your bassline with a different sound.
    The drums could use some more rolls at the end of phrases.
    and lastly you could add some sweepers and crashes to add diversity and to add transitions to new phrases

    you're definitely in the right direction with the sounds you got so far for jump-up

    Hope this helps!

    I love it. I'd rinse it out with another tune and cut it the fuck up. mixdown is well done. Loving the second breakdown. I agree added variety in the drums and bassline both would increase the interest level of this tune but that being said I really really like it. good work.

    now that i listened to it again on good monitorsi noticed that the hihats are barely prominent during the drop. Adding more hihats could improve the track as well, it adds more danceability xD
