    Clip of track I'm working on at the moment.
    Thought I'd post it up here and see what folks think.

    Kind of reminds me of Aphrodite from back in the day. I see your trying more stuff with the crash. Reverse? Any why I like it post the finished.

    Cheers man.
    Yeah, added delay and got rid of half of the crashes. I find the drum line feels a little dead without them completely though. Changed the break layred with it too. Mainly trying to get the kick n snare sounding how I want them. Gotta say drums have never been my strongest point, but getting better, I hope. lol.

    Anyhow, cheers for quick reply buddy. :)

    nice old skool vibe, maybe the drum are a bit loud in the mix? also could do with a few more layers to fill out the frequencies imo

    Chees dude.
    Only heard it in headphones so far, so imagine levels will all need sorting still.
    I agree some more elements are needed, pretty much what I'm working on right now.
    Cheers again for feedback. :)

    sounds good, just keep that kick in mono and get rid of the reverb it has if you can! or at least put it in mono so it doesn't make strange sounds at the club ;)
    apart from that sounds like a good vibe, let's see what you come up with!

    cheers for that one buddy. I'm lousy at noticing when my kicks start wandering around the stereo field.
