    very ram-y. well produced. really not keen on the snare though. is kinda jarring.

    edit: gets a bit odd after the second drop. not sure about that melody

    Ez man thanks for the feedback, still a first draft at the minute so plenty of room for improvement I haven't written anything like this for a long time need to work on my riffs....I think the melody is gonna be bit like marmite for many people your either gonna love it or hate it!

    It could do with some more progressions/maybe entirely different notation I'm still not sure...I'll be the first to admit it has some serious cheddar qualities to it in its current form

    But i thought lets put up see what the general consensus of the forum is...

    What are peoples thoughts on dropping the big trancey hoover synth and replacing it with the filtered reece?

    Any input would be great cheers :)

    I know having some sort of drums in your intro will make it more viable for mixing. Needs more bounce of some sort, like a pad layer or something, just seems a little empty and dry in some areas. good start.

    I didn't really like that lead after the second drop too.
    Perhaps the filtered reece would fit it more.

    Hey thanks for checking the track and feedback....i'll get a new version up later with that lead taken out :)

    Any thoughts on the snare as well? Liking it or finding it too jarring like JHSE?

    Cheers people!

    snare a bit too loud/in the face.

    but sometimes thats good. like if you want to switch up a set.
