    Hey guys!

    Just in case you felt a little guilty liking the original of this song, I added some breaks, wobble and a nice bassline so you don't have to feel bad :)

    Work in progress so let me know how you guys like, I appreciate all comments, so shoot away!

    Cheers

    It needs more treble - don't get me wrong, that snare drum is thumpy, it's just lacking some "snap" - on the bright side you'll be able to turn it way down and free up some headroom. Sounds overcompressed but the low freq release is so long I don't know what to think. Hats are almost inaudible.

    All in all it's great, the drums are the problem, as usual.

    That my friend is actually pretty sweet!

    Totally agree with Lucider, don't want to sound rude, but that snare is pretty weak ! Easily fixable of course :)

    Apart from the snare it is pretty good mate, nice one :)

    Lucider, thanks yeah i noticed that after i gave my poor ears a rest, i compressed and distorted my snare so much it almost sounded like a kick o_O. ended up tweaking that a bit today, and raised the vol on my hats. Even threw on some maximizer but now i cant tell if its hurting or helping... my poor poor ears haha.

    well thanks for the input guys i appreciate it. keep it real

    Cheers, W3st
