    really love your percussion work in this mate, sounds so nice and clinical. I can't really hear any bass though, what about some tunes 808 kicks knocking about? or maybe just a long rolling sub

    really nice drums dude - but they seem a bit on their own - but hey i could listen to just drums all day
    but most peeps need a bit more substance - beef up the other elements
    nice and moody good job

    Nice. Yeah the bass could probably be different but this is pretty sweet anyhow. I like the overall vibe and the drums.

    Keep working on this one, I say.

    But yeah. No point having a bass so low it's almost impossible to hear. You may have brilliant sounds and melodies, but without the bass to glue them together, they're completely separated.
    Love the percussion and background though. Might need a bit more body at some "empty" parts, but maybe the bass alone would be sufficient there.

    Anyways keep it up. Loads of potential there.

    nice.
    leave the existing bass there, cut off @ 40hz
    layer in another bass a couple of octaves higher to complement and roberts your brothers father. :)
    could maybe do with some vocal FX?...

    existing fx and drums sound good! :)
