    Hi all,

    Here's a new version of a track that I put up here before. I've made a go at trying to do a better mix down of it. I'd appreciate any feedback that people can give. Thanks

    The drums in the intro sound hollow, like they're EQ'd (or compressed?) funny or something. By the time things get going around :35, I like what you come up with, kinda Reggae vibe. The voice (synth?) coming in at 1:05 is too faint. You do a lot with that voice by 1:45, so definitely turn it up. Interesting breakdown by 2:00. I feel like more samples, effects, maybe another pad or something, to keep interest. By 2:45 you're introducing a whole new idea with the music; it's pretty cool, but now the song is ending.

    I like a lot of the basic atmosphere, kind of an early Skream! feel to it in some ways...

    Howrya lads, thanks a million for the feed back. Yeah, the bass drum does sound a bit funny. I'll have another go at it and look at lengthening it (that's what she said). I'll always try and make tunes pretty short so they don't outstay their welcome but this one could probably do with a bit more
