    production is awesome man. sounds awesomely mixed

    musically, not so much, if it wasn't for the sticks after the drop i would've said it'd been lowpassed. just a lil monotonous imo

    but yeah man if you sprinkled some funky bits over the top i reckon it'd be a nice lil steamroller

    Cheers for the feedback mate, what kind of bits would you suggest to sprinkle on top?

    I felt the track was missing some bussines in the highend but then at 2.00 it already happened with the extra hats.
    the only thing I could suggest is a different snare which is a bit highpitched with a lot of fx, reverb or something.
    and then have it come around every now and again.

    on another listen, i think what would really help create a vibe would be to have more 'air' in the tune

    not sure exactly what freq range that is (15-20khz??) but just something to give the impression of space

    also i really like the atmos fx you use but they're really far back in the mix and they're quite easy to miss if you're not concentrating on them, so personally id make em louder, give them some stereo etc. so they still sound thin and ghostly but definately present in the mix

    hope that makes sense bru

    Yeah ive been trying to hold back on the FX, I always have them quietly back in the mix so that they fill up some space and higher frequencies, but dont get mixed up with other main elements..

    I like the 'air' suggestion but im not quite sure how I would get started on that, any tips? cheers
