    im not really into the dubstep but from a technical standpoint i guess it could do with a bit of phatness to the drums, the highs were really crisp and nicely audible, but really lacked a lower punch, where i would assume the deep kick drum would be a driving force in dubstep (??)

    the bassline was alright although a bit odd of a melody i guess, a bit grating after a while if you know what i mean, that could be because of the key or the progression, maybe make it a bit more grittier, and interesting, maybe just tweak the lfo so its fully wet, if you know what i mean, instead of loose..

    also you could lightly sidechain it to make the kick drum have more impact.

    Thnx for feedback.
    Im agreed with everything except that melody part :D
    But im working on it
    anyways
    i had it sidechained before but i think i holded threshold on -23db (changed -30,3 db)
    I made drums fat as you gave me advice.

    Anyways thnx for listening :)
    Cheers!

    Well its pretty good. Nice thing to start with.
    The bass needs a little work I think, sound a little not okay but don't know what it is.
    Drums are cool, I'm looking forward to the end result!
