    So ive been working on a new liquid piece. would love some feedback on a) what you think at the moment, b) what i need to add on the drop.

    ive been trying to work out a way of getting a catchy melody, but im spent for ideas. drums need spicing up too i think. advice greatly appreciated!

    the drums and the mix all sound real nice to me! drums could probably be variated a little as there playing for a long time, i reckon the drop just needs a light liquid roller of some sort to fill in some of the middle freqs! sounds tight though bro

    thanks for the advice. gonna spice the drums up and add some percussion bits in. i know what you mean about the mid range, thats the bit i struggle with. do you not think it needs a melody then?

    You could always put the vocal in the drop with a large echo and reverb. Might help fill out some space. Also so electric piano would sound nice be played a various points. Sounding good so far.

    The piano sounds good, it fits the tune well. You could maybe try adding a new layer of percussion after 16 bars of the drop to keep things a bit more interesting.

    thanks man, appreciate teh kind words. Tbh, i kind of threw the hats in to get a groove going and never bothered changing them. do you think there a bit piercing or something? ive been trying to change them up a bit but nothing seems to fit!
