    I really like the buildup. Tambourine/shaker might be a bit too loud, but I'm not listening on proper speakers right now. As for the main bass sound. it's a bit too fiddly, feels like you are trying to make it sound better by using as much effects as you can think of.
    The kick sounds good to me.

    Care to feedback on my first track? cheers!

    the bass doesn't sound very clean. you may have some unwanted frequencies in it. Try to cut off the bassline at around 100-150hz and for the low frequencies create a sub bass that plays the notes of the bass at about 40-80hz. That should sound much cleaner.
    Also inform yourself about sidechaining. Keep going! :)

    Thanks guys. Cheers SubKa, should I be sidechaining all the drums as in kick/snare/shakers/hats/perc or just kick/snare or kick or snare?

    Usally I only sidechain my bass to the kick and snare and then sidechain the sub bass to the kick so the sub doesn't take away any impact from the kicks attack.
