You definitely have some potential here. Let's get to it then:
- Great musical layout/architecture.
- Feels diverse
- Smacks a little closer of liquid drumstep than dubstep, which is always nice
- Choice of some samples I would question. The hi-hat feels a little overbearing (I think this will fall on mastery/eq- but I'm sure toying with something softer wouldn't hurt at this stage). The tom drum or w/e that is being used (this will sound ghetto) on the end of the kick 'roll' feels a little too fluffy and pronounced.
- Normalization, EQ work and mastering all need a lot of love. You already pointed this out per your submission so I did not dock points for this.
Keep at it.
fantastic review! This is exactly the sort of thing that I need at this stage :) Very helpful ^^
