    Yet another stonker of a track Richie! Id love to know how you search for your vocal samples. I know youtube is the key, but what the fuck do you type in the search bar to find such gems?

    likin this mate
    think the bass needs a bit more of a switch up tho its sounds good but maybe needs some new tones an wat not.
    really love that cymbal sounds proper sick the way it carrys on like its got delay or something
    drums sound pretty sick too an samples is sick
    overall sound pretty swish mate.
    mite have to take your b movie sample search idea aswell!haha

    i dig the drums man, one step beat. sexy. i concur with the rest, it needs more variation on the bass.

    We should well do a collab! In most of my tracks I get told my drums are really good and punchy, which I'd like to think is true. But I suck however at creating a filthy monster of a bassline lol!

    Agree with all, drums are wicked and it just needs a bit more variation to keep it interesting.

    Reckon your kick could do with some more punch, only a little but I think it could cut thru better in the mix. Get some variety on the bass too, as marlo said, get some switch ups going on. Other than me being picky its sounding alright.

    really, kick more punch? had to tone down the kick in this one cos it was cutting through too much!

    i had hoped changing the pattern would keep the variety, but clearly not! new patch needs to go in for shizzle!

    Kick is fine imo. Maybe some rolling on the beats at some point would work nicely, but I have to agree that there's a certain sexyness in the straightforward 1step beat.

    But the bass really needs some more modulations and surprises. Mixdown is all well imo.

    there is a lil shuffle of the kick when 'whom whom' comes in at the end of the two bar riff... but drums are staying stompy! I'll bosh another b-line in tonoght and get more feedback (y)
