    Hey guys,

    So I started working on this kinda liquid bit last night, and I've kinda run out of ideas. I don't know how to progress further but I also think it needs something a bit more exciting with what I've already got. I really like the vibe I've got so far so I don't want to have to completely rewrite anything. It's still very, very, WIP though. Any insights/ideas/suggestions/criticism is welcome.

    nice bassline, i think the drums could do with beefing up, maybe throw in a break or two and some hats/tamborines to add some pace? maybe just some melodic elements like a stab or a stronger melody over the top will fill it out nicely, good work so far, big up!

    Thanks! I'll work on the drums some then. There's actually a shit ton of hats used I guess, I have to bring them up in the mix some, either that or swap them out for some breaks.
