Don't stop producing. There's good stuff in there.

I'm not digging the cheesy pads in most of your songs. Some of the best dnb tracks have a pad so quiet its just ambient noise or no pad at all. Pads are awesome but easily over used, just like raspberry liqueur. You'll get a lot more out of them if you quiet them down, I think.

Cheers,

APOCALYPSE: Intro works well as halftime, The pads do need lowering, the drums need proper beefing up when the bongo loop isnt there, but i do like it when the bongos come in. A few effects/noises on the intro/second breakdown would add a bit of character to it as well. Good ideas tho.

HAPPY: Drums are really weak and are far too quiet, Bass is good fun tho and catchy, there is a bit of a cutting issue on the three downward warps tho. Love that effect before the drops. Good variation on second drop as well, sort those drums and it could be hot!

MINDSPLITTER: Dont really like the phased break on the intro, drums are an issue again, they need to be punchy an loud, but bass is wicked, i really like that!

COLLISION: Like the intro, really original. Drums again need 'ooomph' The drums could be re-worked really well to that DUM DUM DUM DUM bass with a K--K/snare pattern.
Bass is pretty sick as well.

listenin to apocalypse now...........ok....ur intro synth is abit weak.....eq the low end abit more,i know the reason u have done it....so it gives the main reese abit more oomph,but it shouldnt effect it really.the intro drums sound good....may b copy that half time break and add a little reverb on it but not to much otherwise u will muddy up the whole mix.k im at the drop.yer soundin good...the beats do need beefing up.what u want to do is get an analyser and set ur kick so its hitting at about 100Hz and not exceeding 10db and also with ur snare/snares make sure they are hitting at about 200Hz.the bongos IMO need turning down a little bit.but u defo got talent man....keep it up bro (y)
