    Hi,
    so lately I really got into some neurofunk stuff and tried to create something similar.



    This is not finished; but I think it's enough to criticise the mix (and the intro/build up).
    Any comment is appreciated; I'm especially interested in critique regarding the mix and the bass line during the break. :)

    Thanks!

    soundign good. some nice ideas here. the mixdown is good, the mid bass could do with some more oomph tho. maybe link its movement with the sub a bit more? build up is good but i think you should bring the drums out a bit more towards the drop! sounding good tho

    Great movement in the bass it just needs some beef imo. Get some sub-bass sorted and fill the drums out a bit, perhaps with some percussion or splashy hats / crashes. The bass in the break is working, I think you just need to eq it some to make it fit more with that low piano.

    i would like it more with some delay on the drums maybe.. or a small reverb. its a bit empty in those kicks and snares

    Thanks for all the feedback. :)

    I kinda kept the drums that dry on purpose as I was going for that dry/clean Billain sound; but I will try a small reverb and also add some crashes/splashes to make the drums sound more full.

    I'm not satisfied with the bass sound so far since I think that it needs some more "beef" as well. I've been using a subbass line that doesn't really follow the mid/high bassline. But I will try to take the mid bassline and EQ everything except the sub out of it and use that as sub bass. Maybe that will work better. I find it quite hard to write a fitting subbassline that can keep up with all the modulations anyway; so just using the modulated bass and EQ it to work as a subbass might be the better choice after all. :)
