    check that over limiting and low level of the drums... snare is almost not there.
    you need to do a better mixdown.
    I once heard this and I keep on repeating it:
    "it's drum and bass, you can't lack of drums, you can't lack of bass"
    in this case, check the "drum" part ;)
    hope that helped

    Thanks for the reply. ^ ^

    Edited the levels and EQs a little. Drums should stand out more now.

    two things....

    1. Why is it called Betelgeuse?
    2. You said you've already done it, but if the track that's in the OP is the new version you still need to improve the mixdown. I think I can hear some trebly fills in the background, but you should definitely make the main drums standout more and increase the levels of the fills.

    Just some ideas

    1. Named it after the star. xD
    2. Redone yet again, most likely failed yet again.

    completly agree, the track is clipping, drums have a far over compressed sound to them, its not nice to listen to... But structure and music content is good.

    music elements are really good infact bro, i like the melodies, however, sound quality = absolutly dreadful!

    And most of us like quality over anything else. You got the ability, just dont have the techniques yet.

    don't turn the drums up, turn the other elements down ;)
    compare with say, some tunes from stabilished producers whom you like their music, and then, figure what sounds in your song should be lower in the mix untill the correct ones come up.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Will keep trying. ^ ^

    Having some horrible underruns, so the mixing is pretty much trial and error. >_____<

    EDIT: seems it's... Somewhat clearer now.
