    Yo, made a track which hopefully conveys a fair bit of energy. Constructive criticism would be appreciated / what is your least favorite part of the track?

    Nice, some bold sounds in here, tune sounds nice overall. The bass sounds good.
    Perhaps try and use the same synth but vary it up every 4 bars so it kinda goes up then down (don't know if I explained this very well but I can hear it in my head lol). It sounds a little bit repetitive is all - although the sound is great I think it needs some variation.
    Trying to use this as an example - though the sounds arent the same I'm trying to get across the point of the 4bar switchup throughout the tune

    Nice tune though man

    Its a good tune i think it sounds amazing. My suggestion of Change would be to switch up from the rise at the drop to like a total bass breakdown then a rise the breakdown and so on. Instead of rise rise rise rise the filtered rise. You know what i mean?
    Great production keep it up

    Cheers folks, appreciate yous taking the time to listen and give some feedback! I'll definitely get to work on changing it up and varying the sounds ASAP - think the 4 bar switch ups is a great idea and maybe some more attenuating filter automation on the bass to give it some more life for a bass breakdown. I'll mess about with it, cheers guys :)

    Good bass sounds. Love the breakdown sounds too. The lead up to the breakdown doesn't have enough energy to pop into the breakdown imo... maybe some different drum work there? Also I like the concept but I think the synth line is a little too all over the place with the lfo - keep it a little more simple so it you can catch a groove as a listener. I would have probably preferred about half the lfo speed of filter on the synth for the first part.. there's enough energy with the drums and bass to support that. Good work on this
