    Hey. So this is the first track we're releasing.. one of about 3 in the pipeline...

    we're trying to fuse drum and bass with other styles and create new sounds.

    This track is probably most influenced by matrix and futurebound.

    PLEASE listen and add us if you like it!
    Thanks

    Drums sound choppy and mechanical, add some shuffle (tambourine loop or something) and it'll have a much nicer groove.
    Good luck to all of you

    Not my style, but...

    The kick isn't noticable at all after the drop, and the snare is too weak imo. Try layering a more punchier one beneath the current one. You need to put in more hats or other percussion so the beat rolls better. Good luck!

    cheers for the advice.. the drums are pretty dominant but the sound does get lost when uploading to myspace and converting to mp3 etc... if anyone wants the track let me know ill send it

    No disrespect, but I really doubt the kick gets so extremely lost cuz of myspace. What do you use for monitoring? Anyway you can upload the mp3, then i'll download and check again if you like.

    Loving the guitar, but as somebody else said, the kick ain't noticeable enough.

    good use of pads, i would maybe try adding a break over the drums with all the lowend eqd out to give it a fuller sound. lots of buildups which is always good. guitars sound crisp. bit of work to do but still a good sound. keep em comin, safe
