    its good man. i like the atmosphere and all. the levels are a some what off, i think the drums (at least kick and snare, who gives a fuck about a hi hat) are very low in the mix and the arp is too high. lots of cool mid range sounds in there. one idea could be to hammer out a more decisive groove, there is lots of variation which is good, but it is a little random at times. more charachter to the sounds as would be cool too, its sounding a tad digital. are you using massive?

    Thanks man, this is some good feed :3 I can put the drums a bit louder in the mix i suppose heh, what is a "decisive"-groove tho? Ill think about the random-ness next time and be mroe concrete with the composition, so sometimes things will sound less random.

    Hmm, Nope, i use Albino 9/10th of the time in a song, in this case, all is albino. How could I give sounds more character tho?

    many ways to do it, one way is to record your sounds really loud to tape, any cassette player will do, and then use that as a layer or replace the sound with that
