    that's cool man. i liked it, good hooks and transistions. had a kinda dub fx vibe for me. Thievery Corporation, right?

    get your production up to high level & you've got a pretty sweet tune.

    Hehe, I am a big fan of Dub FX. so yeah, might be an influence :D

    was tweaking the sound for a long time and still ain't happy. Just can't be bothered with it anymore. Finished this quickly today cause I wanna move on to a new tune ;)

    Yeah I'm the same bud. From what I can hear you've got some degree of musical ability, so work on your production and you'll be rollllin

    Just to add, i think it it was me i'd bring in some rolling drums at the 0.27 mark

    was experimenting with a filtered fade in for the drums in the intro but it didn't seem to work for me like that. guess it's personal taste. what do you think about the mixdown in general?

    Yeah all down to taste mate.

    Sounds fine to me, everything sounds in place. Maybe push the drums.

    I'm just imagining some hard, fast & heavy hitting jungle drums over this tune, i think it'd work so well! :p
