    hi phil, nice well rolling track. sound is very nice, clear and loud on my system. i would put down the mid-range chords, maybe some EQing can help. otherwise proper jump-up tune. like it ! :2thumbs:

    Overall I think this tune has a lot of potential to be a really huge stomper.

    Intro Ride I found a bit too splashy I'd personally change it for one with a litle more top end and less mids. The intro itself I found lacking that pressure and build up that the main hook delivers. I'd maybe go for something more minimal with a really intense kick build up and synth build up (Think Noisia Stigma) The tune overall has potential imo to sound like something along the lines of Noisia - Crank.

    Drums wise everything does sound clean but I'd probably have a kick with a little bit more of a thumpy low end and the snare to be less splashy and more wooden/rim shot like with maybe a touch of reverb. Background percussion and hats there's nothing I'd change and overall vibe of the tune is really going somewhere nice.

    Mid bass I am particularly fond of but would love to have a little modulation coming in after the first 32 and maybe a off time kick introduced and some FX added in here and there.

    This is all my personal opinion and I am by no means an expert but hopefully this helps.

    Cheers man, I'm currently reworking the drums and making it more of a jump up arrangement. That
    D Minds - Blacker VIP tune is sick I just checked it out can't believe I missed that, glad you mentioned it

    Very good, tight and loud! I'd maybe say some rolling hats at points and a bit more reverb in general just to finish it off!

    Thanks for the feedback. Yeah that's what I was thinking too. I'm glad you said about the reverb, I'm a bit of a fiend for dryness so I was a bit on the fence to add a touch more.
