    Wanted to make a nice roller with a dirty bassline, something that bounces along and fun to mix. As most of my stuff never turns out the way I want it to, I was quite surprised with this one as I was what I was after really....would be interested to know thoughts on percussion levels and mixdown in gerneral before I send it off to any labels...

    ta!

    interesting intro, Really dig your snare. Your bass could def used some work, it works in spots but gets a little boring but everything else sounds good

    ez m8,

    i liked the bline bruv, but felt dissapointed as to no variation really, and the lask of what was going on from the drop.

    other than that still a catchy headswinger m8. safe!

    Ok, the general consensus is to do a bit more with the bassline. I was keeping it simple, admittedly, maybe too much so this time around....

    I will see if I can do a variation on the bassline, not quite sure if I'm going to drop in a 2nd variation every other bar or maybe do a switch half way through the track....hmm
