0:51 2:18 i used this from massive too from my recently dubstep "A New Rules"

Definitely sounds a lot like a Waterflame track to me. Reminds me a lot of Clutterfunk and Clutterfunk v2 in terms of composition and the bassline. Only problem that stood out was, as another person mentioned, the weird one-off synth at 1:38, which was out of place and out of key.

Right off the bat, this track is an absolute blast to listen to! It's got some great energy, which really seems to be your forté. It all starts off with a bit of sweet downtempo, with a very nice mix of sounds, from synth to percussion. When the bass drops down an octave and you start adding all those other growls and distorted elements it gets even more fun, and you continue varying your beats to keep things interesting.

The main thing I struggle with is the lead that starts coming in at 1:38. Early on it seems to have a lot of pitch-bend going on, which doesn't sound good at all to me when the notes are already so short. The instrument choice itself is probably my least favorite in a mix that otherwise sounds pretty solid. It just doesn't fit together as well as the rest does, so it comes off as low-quality and fairly cheesy. But at least that bending eases up after about ten seconds, even if the lead more or less clashes with the other elements in the track.

Melodically, this piece is honestly quite lacking, and it all comes to an end with just one more standard rising sweep and crashing boom. Pretty lackluster, and definitely areas for improvement.

Your perc and bass really shine though, and those drum samples are super tight! You start mixing these elements together with better melody ideas, and you will truly become a force to be reckoned with.
