    Interested to hear opinions on this, never done anything this steppy before and think it came off pretty well! Any feedback welcome, cheers

    EDIT: Fattened up the kick!

    Hey man!

    I'd change the kick for sure. It's way too clicky and not weighty enough for this kind of a roller!

    Liking the Icicle vibes haha.

    I agree with brutality, the kick doesn't sound right.
    the rest does however :)

    nice work! i like the Kick myself, could perhaps do with another one layered in ontop of a few of the hits in each phrase, for variation and weight. love the sounds, vibe is wikid, wobbles are sweet. Think your percussion needs to be a little punchier, maybe a bit of parallel limiting and compression, or tweek it some more if you have already done that. bigup tho, wikid vibes

    Cheers man, yea I changed the kick after the original post to beef it up! I know what you mean, even though its the best ive done so far with punch percussion i'd still like the snare to come through more, never tried parallel limiting or compression so might give it a go on my next track
