    I always feel like that with minimal, the percussion is so important, try working on adding more variety with that!

    When I opened the track in soundcloud, I was like: "Holy S**T! Look at those spikes!" hahah

    Anyways, I agree with MisterApe. Specially at the beginning of the song.

    Yeah, it defo needs something more added to it for the sake of variation. I also feel like in minimal you should be able to hear everything real clear and be able to make everything out... With that being said I would like your midrange stuff up in volume a bit.

    However I think the flow of the beat is cool. Tho personally I would edit out the tail of the kick sample. :)

    first thing i notice... u need a gate on the kick badly IMO... rhythm is nice... high end seems to stand out a bit too much... that break is nice into the more stepped down drums is sweet... need a shaker somewhere to step it up a notch even for just 8bars of the stepped down part
