    i'd say the synth needs more presence in the intro if that makes sense. other than than, nice tune, summer vibes goin on, must have been nice weather down your way.

    Nice quick intro but could be better mixed, a little loud on my monitors.

    Try to compress that snare some more and lose the long tail on it?

    Nice widened growly bass but still trying to gather whether it suits to be wide in the mix. It sounds as though it's right on the outsides.

    Maybe have the sub bass come in at :11? The quick intro fully gives the impression it's going to kick in there hehe.

    Nice fills and FX scattered throughout. Maybe variate that snare with some lower off beats every 16 bars or so?

    And finally try adding a pad or string to that second break to give a different feel to the first and fill it out more.

    For the second drop, try go back to no drums and get some mood flowing with some moving sounds and some clever filtering to bring it back to the drop. It's got a decent feel to it. :)

    thanks for the feedback guys. yeah, i haven't mixed it down yet. i kinda thought about shelving it unless i can come up with somewhere to take it. we'll see what happens to it over the next few days...

    00:55 - 1:05 I would definitely introduce something there... some kind of swell... Pad doing some kind of rise.

    1:44 - 1:46 I would maybe alternate that riff between the pitch it's at and down an Octave as well...?...


    Drop was solid, tune is fun. Prod doesn't sound bad on my cheap comp speaks.

    i will have to go back and listen on my monitors (not like they are any better than my built in laptop speakers!) and see about the snare. i typically use three snares, so it is likely just an eq issue. thanks for the feedback guys, i always try to feedback every track on this forum (probably only get to about 75% though). nice to get it back.

    The snare is a little too overpowering and really needs to be compressed plus the reverb tail on it is too long in my opinion. Have you given it a low cut? Sounds as though there's too much bottom end on it. But definitely compress it more.

    Sorry for the late reply. Loving the overall flow of the track, nice progression. I do agree about the bassline, but in this sub-style of dnb, the bassline should be like that. You obviously have a good ability for making dnb tracks...shame i just love mine far darker ;)

    @ emmeeji

    yeah, normally i like things a little darker myself. i just stumbled upon this hook and was feeling it, and i just let it roll. i'm just getting back into producing after a few years off, so i think as i get used to things again, my tracks will start to sound a little more like yours. i guess that, ultimately, if it's dnb i like writing it! thanks for the listen, looking forward to more from you, too...
