Personally, I think the final mixing quality is the best I've achieved yet.
The strong bass doesn't interfere with the other sounds.

Pretty swell drop, the vibe's got me groovin' a little over here..

But I have to say that is lacking on some fronts. What you currently have as an intro is fine, but it sounds / feels incomplete. The basskick thing that leads up to the drop is nice, but it comes so unexpectedly that it doesn't really stimulate tension buildup. I think you should be WAAAAAY more experimental with regards to sound effects. Crashes, reversed eerie sounds, onehits with a shitton of reverb and distortion, pads to fill up the atmosphere etc. Make it build momentum and tension, so people aren't caught off guard by the drop but are begging for it to go. Add downlifters / uplifters. They are perfect just for this.

Drumwork was pretty spot on imo. As with anything, the more variation you can work in there without losing the flow the better. Try to have some mid frequency percussion bar the kick and snare. Hihats work very well, but some mid, mid-high percussion really add up to a drum beat.

I think your bassline is missing on sub a bit. Don't underestimate the brute power of a good sub bassline.. turn it up. ;)

But really, it's quite good as it is. It just feels a bit bland at places. (I have like 40 tracks with the same problem though haha, hope you don't mind an honest view. ;) )

Keep up!

Thanks for the constructive criticism! :D I'll keep in mind to add more pads/effects/hits to draw in the listener more, There is a lot of bass in the song. Most of it runs under 50Hz though, so you need some decent subs or good headphones to hear it.

I hear you on having a bunch of problematic tracks, I have a crap load that i just give up on haha.

I'll definately put more percussion, hats ans reversal effects in lol. Bear in mind this was made in about an hour xD

I may come back to it and do a touch up on it one day. :)

Again, Thankyou!

Good song is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations,9wave,your song is awesome
