    Here's my next Drum & bass track. This one is a little more focused than previous tracks and I'm really buzzing off how well it came out. I've heeded some advice about lower frequencies on layered drums and now the drums sound a lot more solid IMO. I'm really intrigued to know what ya'll think.

    not a bad start, nice first high melody at the beginning
    that bass is too distorted though, and it sounds like theres way too much reverb goin on which makes it sound a bit messy
    you need to bring up the drums in the mix, or bring down the bass somewhat

    I always seem to mix drums a little too quiet :D. Thanks for the feedback :)

    Useful tip would be to not use stereo synths until you have a proven level of production. They tend to fuck the levels up, which is what's happening here. Just stick to stereo reverb if you need to get width.
