    Easy guys, I've been making a lot of harder stuff recently so wanted to make something more mellow, this was the end result, still got a bit of an ugly mid bass but the rest is nice and lush and melodic. Would welcome all your feedback. Many thanks and peace.

    Bass is nice and actually works quite well with the more uplifting sounds/vibes. Drums are also decent but could use more layers of cymbals and percussion.

    For more melodic tracks you have to write better melodies and chords: it's kinda obvious that you don't have much experience doing this- iit's worth looking up music theory and analysing chord progressions from songs (not dnb!) you like.

    You also loop things quite a lot. It gets a bit repetative. I think you need greater contrasts between the different 8 and 16 bar sections.

    Sorry for being harsh, hopefully you should improve more this way.
