    you got all the right elements there, but somehow its not moving enough with that mixdown. youd need softer drums or a bigger drop. apart from that everything sounds kinda okay regarding youtube quality..

    I'm having a listen now.

    Needs moar sub imo, the mixdown is very bland, everything sort of has its own place too much, there's nothing to capture your attention and make you go 'wow'. A vocal is always a sure way to do that, but that can be hard to make it into an original piece by using accapellas...

    I don't know. There's nothing wrong with it, but it still doesn't have anything to remember it by. In the breakdown at the middle you have a nice simple synth stab coming up that caught my attention, but you take it away right after that :(

    Sort of an instrumental version of a killer tune!

    apologies on missing this mate, sounding solid... real nice liquid vibe on that. hm cant think of much to comment on, really nice tune, but maybe just needs a tiny little something like some vocals would sound wicked on this one. really like those bleeping noises after the 2 minute mark. wicked tune mate

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The synth in the breakdown is used throughout the whole tune, but an octave lower, more as a synthbass.
    Any tips on how I can get the mixdown less bland? I thought it's good when everything has his place.. And vocals can be nice but good samples are hard to find, any tips for that, where I can find those or where I can search?

    Thanks!

    Yeah the bleeping stuff was something new I wanted to work with, but creativity isn't on my side lately..
    Again for the vocals, any tips on where I can find/search some good vocal samples?

    Thanks again for the replies and for listening, keep 'em coming :) !

    I've sent you a PM back (I think, can't find it anywhere anymore, hehe).
