Where is the bass?

I did enjoy the track, that intro drum beat was definitely interesting, something you don't hear in every dubstep song. The composition in general, with the song returning to back to that intro riff every now and then was good- returning to the familiar section works well.

What I think the track needs is a slightly longer intro before that noise-build up, also I'd recommend keeping a kick or high-hat going as this build-up happens, because this would keep the rhythm going, and make it easier to dance to the drop. Often producers would put a kick steadily doubling its timing with a highpass taking out more and more of the low frequencies over this part.

One other problem I have is with the bass sound after the drop. It seems to only contain the high-end. If you layer your current wobble with a more midsy wobble, going at the same time, and a sub bass (which you'd probably need to sidechain compress with the kick) then it'd sound ear-raping as. Finally, after the drop simplify the drums and turn them up- the crazy drums work in the intro, but not so much the more intense parts. And the synth sound at the start sounds sort of like a fruity-loops-esque preset, you should mess with it a bit more, perhaps layering it too.

That's all the criticism I have to give, I hope it was relatively constructive, haha. Good luck with future dub to the step.

Much obliged. I've worked on my production routine a bit since this track (in reality this was my second ever track). A fill during the drop would work; my idea of a drop is like a crescendo to a break-down, usually i separate the drums from the different verses. I like your idea of keeping my off-beat drums to the intro; i really liked the sequence i came up with and whored it a little bit, need something with a heavier rhythm for the heavier parts.

That wasn't an FL preset, but close. Sylenth1, with modifications. I've since moved on to MASSiVE =DD now i'm racking my brain as to producing dublines with variating wubs without having to use pitch gates, and since automation is impossible under my current method, with some equipment I can start automating with MIDI, then the quality should go up substantially. Thanks for the review though very much appreciate it.
