    Haha I like the vocal sample -- good pre-drop.
    The beat itself is good for drumstep, too. Personally, I'm not huge on the "yeah" sound (I feel like it's getting overused, but that's me). I feel like I tell this to everyone doing heavy tracks, but maybe think about a neurofunk (like Noisia) influenced bass to throw in there, too.

    Another thing: Have you ever listened to Rollz? Listen to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfD_2NyO36M
    I think you could implement some sub drops every 8 bars or so, if you didn't want a straight up constant note playing sub -- the track needs some sort of sub to fill the low end in.

    Thanks for the review!
    Yeah i thought about changing the sub too, it sounds too boring. Cool idea with the sub drops, will think about it ;)
    Thanks for the help!

    Not really feeling the bassline because of it's sound, but on the technical way, it sounds good. Drums are well and nice intro!
