    Nice atmospheric intro, I like the delayed hits. After the vocal I was expecting some dirty wobble bass to appear, so I was a little dissappointed there, but you got some nice drum hits. Think the snare could be a touch heavier, sounds a little to light to me (all personal taste mind you).

    Aaaaaaaaand there's the bass I was expecting lol! Sounds nice, again my personal taste wouldve wanted it to wobble more as opposed to the almost stabbing like sound but either way sounds good at this end! :)

    the soundquality is good but the bassline and beats are 100% bog standard, i recommend you try and be original now that you got the basics down

    bog standard?? youve never heard of that, maybe its a northern thing??

    it means theres a million and one others that are exactly the same = no originality..

    my review however is i quite like it..
    mixdown sounds good but it is a bit unoriginal

    Okay thanks for the fast response!
    I understand now, there is still a lot of work for this one.
    But still, it is the first track in this style, so I'm kinda happy with it right now.

    nice intro, melody sets a nice tone. sounds good when the beat drops, nice fx as well keeping it interesting....

    damn that's some filthy bass!!! liking that, need to hear it on some proper subs to appreciate it properly.

    nice tune imo, good and dirty!
