    Hey all, just did a roughish mix of a sort of liquid dnb tune and I'd like some feedback if possible at all.

    Lol the title caught my attention, good job there xD...

    Now for the tune...it's okay. There isn't anything there that jumps out to me to make me say it's special. I'd even say it's sort of repetitive, particularly in the bass (and I guess for a liquid track, if you're going to vary any patterns, might as well be btwn the pads and basses, so long as they are subtle variations).

    Maybe fitting a vocal on top somewhere would give it some more spice, regardless of how chilled back you want it to be.

    Good work on the amen tho, and everything sounds in key.

    Overall, right now I think it's a good start, but it needs some work.

    How about variations? Regarding the bassline, the beats, everything? Sounds very stiff this way.

    Overall it's pretty good, if there's one area I'd say to work on it would be the drums and maybe add some sparse vocals if you want.

    Not sure, maybe it's the title. Savage tune that.

    Thanks for the feed back. Some really helpful pointers there. Gonna put in new hi hats. Add some vocals. Vary the bass a bit. Is there anything else I could drums wise?
