    Clarity is really good mate, just one thing. Turn you hats and percussion up a bit. Or if you're happy with the levels, try to pan your hats between 5 to 10% left or right, will bring them out of the mixdown a bit better. And other percussion noises too, pan them the other side. You should see a difference from this. =] Other than that, really nice tune! Big up to you.

    rather than setting pan on channels to fit more things
    in the mix set the stereo imaging and adjust the width
    to get the stereo placement right...
    Will give you so much miore room in your mixdown... .
    bass, stabs, kick and snare coming straight up the middle...
    but being sent to reverbs spread wide to give the
    illusion of width with the weight of the sound still
    slamming through the centre...
    hats and percussion pushed wider... pads and ambient FX
    spread ultra wide....
    it doesnt really work to have different sounds coming at you
    from left and right in a dance tune...
    plus alot of club systems are in mono...

    stereo imaging has been adjusted on
    every single sample... (generally use waves s1 imager to process the sample directly...) but perhpas the hats arent defined enough in the mix...
    the tune doesnt have much dynamic range and reducing
    the file to 192kb/s mp3 doesnt help at all...
    myspace compressing the tune reduces it further...
    will go back and have another listen...

    cheers for the feedback...
    abd thankyou for taking the time to listen...

    p.s
    has anyone used the reaktor 5 mutliband compressor
    the flatblaster 2...? seriously amazing compressor...
    4 band soft kneee compressor...
    can set the stereo spread of each band...
    amazing plug...
