    Sounds ok. I reckon it's a bit light and happy and fluffy, whereas to match your girlfriend there on the mic, you could get that bass a lot deeper and some porno-hip shaking gyrating kinda business going on (however you do that)

    Yeah, more grit, sub and force to the bass. try duplicating your bassline and dropping the second one an octave down.

    Also the melody synth could use some more force, it sounds very lonely in the scape.

    Mmm, Perc is nice and crispy! Sounds great. That lead is full of body, and that Pad compliments it well. I'm loving all of the accompanying Perc sounds... reminds me working on the Triton with it's Drum Kits full of misc sounds. :)

    I'm not going to lie... I don't like the vocs.
    I like that you made an edit on that closed hat line... and the edits on the Perc in general... it definitely keeps things interesting.

    The notes for the Bass work for me, but the patch isn't really doing it imo... maybe if it was dirty I'd be enjoying it... I'd probably run it through some distortion to rectify that.


    Overall, the track is too happy and 'jokey' sounding imo... 'but'... the Prod sounds spot on to me so great job on that.

    Different strokes for different folks... but hey, your Prod is solid!

    nice drums in general on this track, the beat keeps interesting enough to keep me listening, think the bassline could do with a bit of perking up, does sounds better after the 2nd drop with the additional notes in there. could possibly do with a more gritty sounding bass synth, like the melody and the sub frequency tho. would be tempted to put an lfo on the bass synth to give it a bit of variation, more of a wave than a wobble if you know what i mean.
    personal preference but not too sure about the samples, maybe if they were a bit more spread out it would make a difference to the feel of it.
    nice tune overall though :)

    sounds much better with less samples, bass sounds nicer lower too, good work on that! still reckon the bass is missing something, but that's just opinion..

    I think u should make the pad more big, it seems abit thin. the breaks are pretty good,, nice porn sample

    Mmmmm, I like that patch for the Bass a 'lot' more.
    Now, imo... I'd have some fun automating the Filter Cutoff for that patch and make it "rez" out.

    If doing ^ that ruins the stability of the sub you're currently getting from the patch, then might I suggest you make two tracks out of the bass: A. LowPass what you've got now and make that one layer, and then B. HighPass or BandPass the same thing (with some filter automation on that version) and layer it underneath.
