    started this the other day its still work in progress
    think it may need a better mixdown an some tweeks here an there
    but im fairly happy with it so far i think.
    i think i prefer the second half not sure tho.lol
    all feedback is welcome
    cheers

    didn't like that intro to be brutally honest... the passed drums sound a bit funny, but i reckon that will be fixed with some mixdown tweaks! i think it was that attempt at switching the drums up to a jungle sound at the end of the 16 that i didn't like?

    anyways, tune has a good vibe, wicked hat elements and the bass rolls well nicely although i'm too keen on the actual sound?

    hope that helps bud (y)

    intro part, i would have liked to hear that background synth turned up a bit more and also i didn't like how the snare sounds like it changes to a new snare from 0:19 - 0:22
    bassline sounds sick on the first part, good rhythm and flow to it

    and thank you for having an alternate but similar bassline to the first on the second part, it sounds so much better when people do this and it adds so much variety
    great work, both basslines are awesome and work great together

    nice track, wicked synth sounds. if u keep the filtered drums for the intro i would add some other unfiltered bits over the top like at the start of bars or something. not keen on the kick level variation between 0.10 - 0.20 if thats intentional? know u asked richie and not me but i prefer the first section, the synth has a cheeky driving kind of funk feel to it

    Love that bass, rather filthy.

    Much prefer the first half though, not quite feeling the 'steppy' stuffs.

    Sample sounds great, intro & outro could have a bit more going on, I like the idea of adding unfiltered sounds on top of it.

    first bit marklar... but what would be good is at the beging of the second set of 16 or 32 bars (post drop) is to have the two step beat for 1 or two bars then straight back into the rinse out drums

    much like i have done here on the creature http://soundcloud.com/richie_stix/richie-stix-the-creature @ about 1:25

    didnt think the drums were that great. defo mix it down proper, maybe add some more subtle fx and make the intro a tad more interesting.
    especially liked the steppy part tbh!
    nice one

    think it was the sound, but cant remember right now really. will have another listen later when im home at my monitors.

    and btw, could you give me some tipps on how to make them drums as steppy as within the second part?
    nice one.

    sick tune, like the bassline. especially @ 01:50 and on ;)
    what about layering a second snare with more bass in it?
