Definitely an improvement over your last song I reviewed. I mean, yeah, the instruments are a litle unclean, but overall, it’s good.
But, there are a few sounds you’re missing.
First: a heavy-hitting synth. This is the insignia of the DnB genre. It provides a clear yet acidic guide for tone in the song.
Second: a real, liquid and growling bass. You can keep your current chords, but, I mean, those won’t be enough. Using FM synthesizers like Sytrus or FM8 can give you a leg up on these tasks. FM synthesis can give crunchy bass sounds AND smooth, liquidy sounds if you mix it with a vocoder, unison and chorus.
Third: this isn’t really a sound, but rather an idea that you’re missing. Don’t be afraid to focus on more than one instrument at a time. You can easily draw attention to one sound even if your other instruments are playing a supporting melody in the background.
One last element I might suggest is trying to change your style in the middle of your song. In a second drop or whatever you might have, I would recommend maybe halving the speed of your drums, i.e. not having a drum every beat but resting for a beat after a kick and then hitting a snare, and some variations upon this principle.
However, I know I can be overly picky. You’re probably doing fine and I’m just over-evaluating. Also, I might like to do a remix of one of your tracks someday.
