    This is really good, I love the atmosphere you've created in the intro.
    the buildup is decent. and the lead after the drop is very nice.
    after the drop there are a few points where the track feels a bit empty though.

    digging the bass, but like stated above, some variations would peak my interest! i think during the drop you might want to add some atmosphere in the background to sort of fill up the song and add some warmth. sick tune tho buddy!

    mind checking out my latest track? id love feedback as well: http://soundcloud.com/w3st_official/adele-set-fire-to-the-rain

    The vocal sample is quality. And that crunchy bass is lovely. Again, atmos would not go a miss. Possibly some subtle hats and shuffles just to keep it all jiving.
    Sounding good tho bro.

    what you should do is look into drum and bass sample packs from danny bird and the like. They have amazing break loops that can be hi passed to add that extra percussion which make your drums roll. it also really fills out the drums and keeps the cymbals interesting.

    cheers

    hell yeah those atmospheric synths make it sound much better. something annoys me about that kick tho, there might be too much mid range
    i would also recommend doing some more hi pass filters of your bassline during the drops with some added panning effects to make it sound wider and make the bassline more intriguing.

    the song is good as of now, it just lacks variety. keep working at it!
