so there is a story about how this piece actually got as a good piece, I made the basis for the piece when I shared it with my friends and I got some constructive criticism and made this piece! THE BEST STORY EVER! xD

Distortion is being mentioned everywhere, and I do hear a lot of it. Try applying a master limiter, and grab a decent side-chaining vst, so your percussion sticks out. It's not too bad, but there seems to be no real melodic base for the song in the drop. Drums sound like a sample pasted over it. In parts where you have a 4 on the floor sort of kick, on each beat, the kick is massively underpowered. Amp up that kick.

This is definitely brostep, but your drop is completely overpowering your drums. Put some reverb on the drums, too. They're really flat in the mix. Also, where are the crashes? I hear just hats.

Synths sound like they might be presets. I can't tell. Sax is definitely one. This track is decent. It needs some serious work. Now, there are good things happening, like the sub-bass coming in around 00:30, buuuuuuuut, you can hardly hear it. This would have been better worked as a trance or techno song, I feel. That sub-bass would have been perfect. Also, the melody wouldn't have been covered up completely by this drop.

Sounds like you spent between 3 and 7 hours on this. You're going to have to start paying more attention to the finest details. When you make a song, play it at two different volumes, once at full, once at half. If you get distorting sounds, that's a sign you need to look at your mix. Red-lining the speakers is not good either. Also, check it out on different sound systems! This is important! And never, ever use earbuds. In my experience, you can over-bass and neglect highs.

Get a spectrum analyzer. Learn to eliminate conflicting frequencies in the bass. Side-chaining will help with this, if you learn how to do it right. Look at what professional producer's spectrums look like. This will also help.

In short, this was a good shot at the style, but it didn't quite make it, for me. I liked it melodically and in concept, but the drop absolutely destroyed the sonaural quality by distorting almost the entire track. Also, there was distortion in your highs. Watch those very carefully.

Anyway, it's a decent song, and you're a good producer, so I hope this feedback helps. No matter what, never stop trying. Never give up your passion! And you can always hit me up in either my "Trying for 10k Reviews" thread in the Audio forum.

Keep hitting that mixer!

That comment was long and intimidating but I read it and I understand a lot of your points.
I honestly thankyou for your insane amount of things I can work on, I never dismiss criticism and always look to get better. I will act on the feedback and practice ALL and EVERYTHING you have told me. once again I cant thankyou enough! and I will defiantly try to fix up everything that everyone has pointed out! I cant wait to put these into action!

Nice drop :D Needs more mixing I guess, so much distortion, really hyperbolic... needs to cool down more! if only you had made it cleaner this would be a 5!

Good job :)
