    As always, sick tune man! With the sub bass, are you modulating the LFO via keytracking/pitch? I really dig it and it stands out in the mix wonderfully. All of the drums sound tuned to perfection. That dark drone sound that comes in every now and then is a great touch. I like how you continuously add/remove certain elements of the track as it progresses, it really keep my interest glued sonically speaking. My only suggestion would be to maybe have a bit of breakdown around 1:53. Maybe just mute the drums and apply a bit of automation to a few of the riffs you've already made, then let that beat come back in with the full fury of all the drums and instruments.

    Lovin' it man.

    overall sweet production and structuring. the song is totally on par, and I agree with everything in above post. only thing I'd add is that you could use a little more variation within the main bass loop itself. instead of just changing notes every 4 beats maybe have one come in a beat early or late, or move around within that scale a little bit with some smaller notes. great track man keep it up!

    The bass is so deep, warm and clean. The song overall is comforting and pleasant to listen to. Mad props on another beautiful track.

    Another top track man, you're really finding your style now with the liquid vibes (although I do miss your jump up, even tho I'm not a fan of jump up!)
