    Hi guys, another new piece from me, not really sure what genre it is. Kinda dubsteppy with a twist of progressive house? Anyway, worked alot on the builds in this track, and the basses, hope it payed off!

    Intro sounds a bit mystical for me not a fan of the bells i think it would sound instantly better with a more complex timbre. But yeah when the bell goes we are left with an interesting idea. I think maybe change some of the drum timbres and for this to work the kick has got to be spot on even if it takes 100 kick samples till you find the right one. also thinking snare/clap is weak maybe keep what you have but layer another stronger sample over it? Good stuff though bush makes me laugh.

    lots of stuff going on and the writing is good. I also think the kick is a bit weak and the subby region is a bit quiet. There's so much going on in the midrange, draws the attention there.

    Sounds like a track tho, don't sound like writers block so that's good!

    sounds kinda electro-ish to me. i'm hopeless at defining styles though.
    like the bush sample.
    personaly i'd have liked the change at 2:48 to go a different way. thought was gonna get even nastier.
    good stuff though man. :)

    Thanks guys. I'll take a look at the kick and snare, and try and work a bit more sub in there too. cheers.

    I like it. The kick could use more pop but I think the snare is fine. The tone of the song is great. The bass is fantastic.
