    New track by me. Something very different from the stuff I normally do. It's a pretty chilled track with a bit of a jungle vibe about it.

    I was having troubles with Soundcloud earlier so I have put it on youtube for now

    Nice and peaceful track overall, I enjoyed the listen.

    I wish there was a prominent KD though... the big subby 'drop' Kick you've got isn't enough imo.

    Prod sounds good, but the drums sound like they could be a bit more upfront in the mix (could just be the youtube compression).

    have you stereod those snares at the end of every 2 bars? fucking beautiful touch mate. Really feeling this tune, sounds perfect, maybe a slightly heavier Kick would work though

    Cheers for the feed back guys! Much appreciated. I'm going to try and get it up on SoundCloud today so there will be a better quallity clip floating around.

    I will have a play about with an extra kick as well and let you know how it goes.

    There is a ghost snare on there I have only used once every 2 bars. It was quite a nice wide sound in the first place, but it also has a small delay on there which has a bit of panning.

    With the beat on this track, because I knew it wouldnt be as heavy or filled out as other tracks I have done I felt I could play around a bit more with things like reverb and small delays etc

    This is really good from what i can hear as im on a laptop lol but i love the pads and the drums are nice to, i cant really tell if the kick is to weak or not but i can tell you with this style of dnb i never really worry to much about the kick being phat just as long as it sounds nice with the other drums in the mix.

    Big ups man!!

    Right, I have managed to get the track on soundcloud now, so there should be a better quallity preview.

    I have also added an extra kick. I tried a few different kicks but a lot dont fit with the main break in the track, so in the end I used a fairly low end kick and low passed it quite heavily so it would have more of a presents in the track rather than sound harmonically big.

    Hope you enjoy:

    Very nice track, the stereo width on the drums was new for me. Great work with the moving sounds and pads. I can hear all the sounds clearly so mix is good and the space is good. Nicely done! :)
