    S'alright mate... i think because the drums are fairly minimal, it sorta loses pace when it drops... maybe a stuttered synth or summing under neath

    I think the bass that comes in at 1.24 would be better to use than the main synth you hav only cos it keeps the pace up...

    great work so far though mate!

    feeling the variations in the bassline, not feeling the initial one tho, rolling drums wud be better imo

    Could just be im missing it, but seems to be lacking in the low end. Would try adding a lo bass track to it and maybe layer in a break here and there to pick the drums up once in a while.
    Good sounds and idea though dude, hope you do well. :)

    i think if you want those cruncy sharp drums, you've gotta fill it up some more, if you used bigger (longer tails) and less crunchy drums, then you could get away with the more minimal patterns you've used, would work really well with the bass imo, but of course would change the sound a fair bit

    i'd layer in a few extra fills, get the gaps between the snares filled out some more, either that or change the drum kit to sumthing a bit smoother n more verby, could go either way i guess

    sounds pretty close to me, except the shakers either side of the snare, personal pref on sound i guess, i think the little fills/rolls may be to full sounding to carry the minimalness of the break, i guess filtering them up a bit, before dropping back into the break might help, coz the fill shouldnt sound bigger than the break? if that makes sense...
