    Heavy track! some nice breakdowns in there. Is that vocal sample part of the stems? or are we able to use our own sounds as well for the comp?

    No I added the vocal, and tbh the rules are a bit vague so I've assumed that I can use my own sounds as well :) Cheers for checking it out.

    I really liked the drums; very snappy/punchy. The only thing I could think of, if you wanted to add something, is that there might be some room in the higher frequencies for a pad or strings or something. More of a potential suggestion than a critique.

    Anyway, very solid.

    Cheers, @ kdk, I used the kick and snare from the stems and just made my own groove, yeah they are punchy. I'll look into a few different pads etc, there is room for more variation there I agree.

    sick, good job on the remix, i agree it needs a bit more variation tho

    and this sounds more like a darkstep track to me than techstep
