Love me some drum and bass lets do this.

Great atmosphere at the start, great way to start adding energy with your hats, I love the variety you have with your hat samples and the panning. Good stereo field creation. The hats keep it chilled and layed back while still driving. you mixed them well to where they're soft, but they have so much rhythmic drive, very good intro so far.

Good balance, and simple uplifter into your drop, still very chill but the kick still stands out with your very tight sidechaining while not being overpowering to your chill vibe.

ADR3 REALLY has an ear for the low cut reverb frequencies muddying up a mix, and I very much agree with him, however, your pianos feel a lot like Mr. FijiWiji, he always uses pianos in his tracks, and theyre always very warm and calming, and pretty heavily reverbed, meant to lay a foundation and nice soft cuddly bed underneath his super chill DnB tracks. Its remniscent of that for me, and in this instance, i like it.

Now, OVER ALL, there is still a lot of reverb on some of your other sounds. Like the wobbly voice that you automate REALLY well in your outro, but during the peak its muddy. I like the heavy reverb on SOME of the things during the climax, like the piano, but it feels like nearly everything is heavily reverbed except your percussion, and I want something to get out of that back end stereo space and come to the front for a little.

Overall a very good Chill and Bass track, very Mr. FijiWiji esque, could use a bit of clarity added in for variation more often. But man, I LOVE your outro let me tell you.

Ok I'll tell you again then, I LOVE your outro.

Well done!!

Nice atmospheric touch in the beginning. For a second I thought I had muted the track by accident until I heard some more crackles.

Now, I would recommend turning your reverbs down by a lot and doing a low cut to 250 hz on each wet send. Throughout, it's pretty muddy in that range, especially on your pianos, where I hear more reverb sound than the actual piano itself. I would even recommend a different instrument choice speaking of, honestly.

Now for your intro sections, I think the bass should be on different notes of the chord. It comes off sounding a little congested. The bassline you have at 2:21 sounds not so bad in comparison. Perhaps the first iteration could be used as a changeup or something but having it repeated doesn't sound great to me.

It sounds like you're doubling low thirds and fifths rather than root notes of chords -- so chunky chord writing. You may want to look up some music arrangement tutorials on YouTube to combat that. There are plenty of great free ones out there.

Otherwise, the mixing is pretty clean. Your leads are a bit buried under the accompanying synths you've written, but I can pretty clearly hear percussion. I don't have a lot of complaints.

Good job coming up with this track in the time limit, and thanks for coming out to NGUAC!
