Called it Bread n Butter because it follows most of the simple elements to make a song through Dubstep as well as elements I have learned since I started doing music. Have not posted in a while and it feels great.

I like the pensive mood at the beginning. The attack on that synth at :13 is a little strong, but I’m getting used to the punchy vibe more after the drums come in too. The progression is a little slow-paced here, but I like the drum samples and rhythmic content. The minimal drop at 1:24 didn’t really work for me - it just has a very different mood than the blissful harmonies beforehand, and was also pretty bland. When the harmonies come back in at 1:50, the mix gets really distorted. I think you need to use some more filtering to isolate the frequency ranges of the different instruments there. The re-intro at 2:30 was nice, although it didn’t really introduce any novel material. The frantic synth riff at 3:13 was cool, but also reveals how distorted the mix is in this piece. Equalizers should usually be the most common mixing tool you use in a track, not reverb or compressors. I also would’ve liked to see you switch up the drop more the second time around, although the echo-y outro was a good idea. Harmonically, this piece needs a bit more depth and variety, and the mixing and mastering could be a lot cleaner. Still, I’m enjoying the rhythmic content, mood and atmosphere, and sound design. Keep at it, Katnip18! :)
