"uploaded 3 months ago"? - nevermind. just checking.

intro sounds sick, big drums, chopped up vocals fit nicely!

buildup to the drop sounds really oldschool, feelin the vibes.
drop could need a bit more sub i guess, but apart from that, solid tunes with a real oldschool vibe and big drums!

Nice ideas in this an the production is good man!
Not really feelin the riff but it works well with the tune nice amount of sub there an a very good drop.
I like the edits in the drums 2.
But personally i aint really feelin the vox, but there needed, i do like it wen its just dnb around the 4:20 mark nice n rolly.
Good trak tho man big up!!

Thanks. It was a hard choice to go or not to go with the vocal, but I thought it just needed that 'little something'... I appriceate your input.

really got my head nodding to this - can't comment too much on quality of production cos I'm on ipod headphones - but as far as structure and catchyness top marks my friend - love the riff and I think the vocals although a bit cheesey work well....nice one fella :)

Great, thanks for your comments. The vocals have been used in a lot of songs actually, from house to hardcore. I think I remember a Ganja Kru tune from years back that had these same parts.

Will be checking that Thin King track too, the last one I heard was really good.

ye man after 420 i prefer the straight bassline there.
intro sounds god and uv obviously put a bit of work into this, i think the vocals sit alright!!
dnt like the extra high pitchy riff which sits with the bassline tho!
good work!

now this is old skool. i like that the drums arent too punchy (it'd ruin the old skool feel) all the sounds sit correct to my ears and to my knowledge. and yeh good call on the vocals kama.

big up sir

Quality work sir!
Drums are spot on, sub is good, vocal fits perfectly imho.
Old skool? Who cares about the label, it sounds great to me :)

like the stabs in intro even tho they sit really far back

quite like the vocal shots actually too, its the "woooaaahh oohh" from that old right on time tune?

breakdown comes in nice, dont like the drums here though

I like the drop actually, bit dillinja esque

drums defo need work, tbh i think they let thetune down a bit :(

kick n snare need tio be harder and the drums need more layers

few of the sounds like the bass and dist bass parts need to come up more too

but good work man its defiately well written, be proud of that :)
