Good work man! I'm not a huge fan of techno myself so i don't think i can review this indepth.

Do like the clarity and depth in the intro, phaser or flanger? i dunno something sounds metallic and i like it. Favourite thing by far is that kick though dude, its big and has body, the slight distortion in it gives it this tribal feel which is a real nice subtle touch, it drives the track all the way to the end, well played man, good work!

its an old djembe sample sliced up and i added some metallic reverb then layered it with the same sample which i compressed the crap out of. after that some more reverb and a simple deep phaser to give it depth :P the kick should sound fulfilling yes :D thank you!

0:00-0:50 - I really liked the atmosphere it created, sounding like hammers from one of modem's tracks. Really drags on though. :I
0:50-1:27 - The kicks really just drowned out the entire hammer sounds, you should've made the kicks less quiet or the hammers louder.
1:28-2:07 - The arp sounded nice, but again, the kicks drowned it. Again, it drags on a bit.
2:07-2:20 - The high-hats are a really nice touch to it, finally something not drowned.
2:20-3:18 - Wow, that arp just sounds plain amazing, fitting in with the track as a whole. But again, it still drags on.
3:18-3:44 - Basically 1:28-2:07.
3:44-4:09 - Really nice outro.
Total, 3/5, 6/10. Really good sound design, but things dragged on way too much and some things basically drowned.

hGea responds:

this kick is supposed to be really hard and muff out all else, but you're right it has really bad mixing throughout the track, the arp should sound clearer. I might come back to this to fix it. Ive only used this track in my mixes to enhance or give some spice to a different track so that's why it drags a lot, so i could loop the thing :D ty for your constructive review, ill look into it :P
