    Sure, hello.

    There's a dedicated sub-forum for tunes and feedback though. But I'll listen to this.

    Listening to headshot. The vocal is a good idea and grabs the interest nicely, BUT. The way it's cut doesn't appeal to me much, it also gets on my nerve for repeating the whole time. In the drop it works well. The drop is also otherwise good, I like the stuttering thing.

    The bass starts very early if I consider mixing this, but that's not a big problem. The kick is panned strangely to the left, it really bothers on headphones as usually they're pretty much centered. I can see what you're doing with the bass sounds, but they're quite soft, you could do with some processing on them, like distortion, filtering, lfo's, bitcrushing, things like that. Beats are nothing amazing, but I guess they do their job. BTW the basses seem to be very loud in the mix, I'd turn them down a bit.
