    Mastering and re-sampling could always come last. The drums and snares needs a harder attack. What samples are you using as for percussion anyways? Maybe another offset bassline?

    I like it. Feel like it has a ton of a potential. The drums need to be a LOT punchier though.

    @windowz
    yea its completely unmastered atm, even the mixing levels are far from perfect, was just a ruff render to see what ppl thought really.

    can't remember exactli where those samples are from , think the kick mite be a basic xfer one , snare sounds like it mite be out of an electo sample set , there all mixed together on my comp.

    think i need to vary the 2nd big baseline drop so it fits in with the lead synth line more , atm its just a direct copy of the bass from the first drop.

    thanks for the feedback mate

    @bassline brine

    chears mate glad u like it, i kinda feel the same way, think a lot of its down to how well the sample fits the tune for me

    and yea your 100% rite on the drums , I'm so weak at drum production, there still pretty basic atm , no layering of processing bar a bit of reverb, and they need to be varied a bit too , ill add in some more hats , and incidentals

    as it is not its only had about 5 hours work on it, started it on friday and iv had a load of uni work , but I'm gna get back on it tmoro night !

    again cheers for the feedback man (like ur stuff on sound cloud 2, baselines are HOT )
