Cool Beat!

I really like this beat man. The only thing is its missing a bit more too it you know? Add some oomph to the base line and get a strong second harmony goin. Your goin in the right direction though...

Lol! A hybrid, very nice!

I have to give you props, I dont think ive heard but one other attempt at giving techno a caribbean flavor. Points for originality :)

The intro was interesting, but I am not quite sure it fits the song. At least it does flow, sort of...

The hard techno bass drum made the song seem like it was about to be a dance song for a second until the steel drums dropped.
Side note : Its almost like all your songs have a rediculous case of an identity crisis! Like I can get down with the whole hybrid techno-with-flavor thing, but at 1:15 (and 1:57) this otherworldly space pad drops out of nowhere that seems like it belongs more in an ambient space-themed track than anything else.
But points cuz when I heard it I literally busted out laughing :)

This song also seems empty, like it needs more meat to it. A bandaid solution to this might be to add a slight (keyword: slight!) reverb to the steel drums to make them sound more 'roomy', but I would still suggest something more substantial be done later to the song to fix this.

Also, mastering could seriously help a track like this in all aspects. I cant suggest anything to you as far as mastering goes because the list would be too long, but I would place most emphasis on creating a soundscape (the song seems completely devoid of one).

And lastly, this track could also benefit from some knowledge in scales.

Its a good idea, it just needs alot of work. So you get a seven :)
