    Hi Guys,

    Long time talking to you guys, I hope you are all well. I took a month out of producing to get into rhythm of my new school and all and finally yesterday, after a month creating nothing, I created this track. I did have to take 2 days from start to finish because I still need to get my groove back on into production but still here it is. Pretty happy with the outcome:

    I hope you like what you hear, and do please comment :)

    Thanks, Much Love,
    Menosance :)

    Btw, I just noticed that I have a mistake in the track, and that is the key of the dark adlib. It is supposed to be C but actually here it is A#. It has been fixed and don't let it discourage you from the overall sound. :) Go ahead and comment on anything else guys.

    Welcome back! : D

    Feel like the break lacks punch.

    Thanks mate! Feels great being back. Maybe the bass is eating them too much or low mix volume? Btw the break is from your favorite producer ;)

    Thanks man :) Drum issue will be fixed tonight, along with the adlib key issue.

    Well for the bass I used a Minibrute sample from a freebie pack from Audio Animals (I think it is still available from their website - have a quick search). I added a Saturator with a Soft Sine preset, EQing by cutting below 40hz, 100hz only and cutting over 5500hz and compressing it overall. Sub-bass just the usual LP at 100hz :)

    very nice also the vocals at 2 minutes! good work! maybe you can add some different strange trippy sound and boost the sub to blow the minds!
