    Big tune mate! The only tiny gripe I have is in the intro and breakdown that arp'd bit on the left is panned a little too hard, it pulls all your focus to it making it a little hard to listen too, it sounds fucking cool as shit tho!

    Happy days man appreciate the feedback, glad you rate it. Yeah that arp caused some grief, it is a bit intense panning with headphones but I think it's alright with monitors/speakers!

    I like the panned intro, unique. Track sounds pretty professional and enjoyable to me. Don't what you want me to add Haha

    Great work. The big kicks in the breakdown are heavy! Really rattling around my room, I like it.

    Production sounds good to me. Breakdown is a little long for my tastes but overall I enjoyed listening to it.

    nice tracks man,...

    hazard is sick... nothing really to pick out from that.

    sukka im liking... the arp/fx element you have running for the first 32 of the drop is a bit too constant for my liking but it does add to the feel of the track.

    gangster :) vibe is grottyyy! loving this one!

    ah fuck, dysrupt... this EP is sick mate!

    hey phonik .. this reminds me much of my techno days, esp. the spinning synth, sounds much like jeff mills. :)
    cools track that is different to the rest .. which I think is important. electronic music is mostly about progression and you do that well!
