    Listen to a few tunes' intros, count bars and take note of when different instances and changes come in.

    That side-chaining is pretty aggressive. For the intro maybe you can carry on with the break you have but filter it out slowly so it turns into the hats you have right before the drop, if you get what I mean haha. Nice piano etc. Strong musical elements. Keep at this one.

    you mean the highs of the pads are too heavily sidechained? 'cause i dont know :D maybe those are my headphones, but it seems okay for me.
    I will redo the intro i think, anyways, thank you for your feedback! :D

    musically very nice, the drums need equing work though, the kick in particular needs to come through much more clearly, i'd find a better kick sample.

    Personally I think there's not much wrong with the intro, its a good sounding tune but like others have said, some added breaks and general EQing to finish it off.

    When i have the arrangement done, i'll start EQin it, maybe a notch at 100hz will help the kick go thru? I Thanks for the replies!! :D
