I really like the syncopated percussion on this. Solid mix-down as well, with a powerful subby kick. Good synth work as well. Nice job.

Cheer's buddy, I think the kick may be a little too strong, but will address that upon completion.

I like, nice work on the synths and chords. I find it hard to add shuffle to my dnb and sound right, but this flows well.

Great intro. Crazy shit in the chords, I only miss the percussion, it could be more present..

But with all context is a great work, congrats!

Thank Saggi, I personally feel the percussion is quite prominent in the mix, that is something I take a lot time to consider, but will have another look soon.

Cheer's Oner, thought I would never get to 1000 haha, got to 950 ages ago and slowly crept up since then. Mind you I only put my name about on here and IDM forum (occasionally).

Thanks chemicallyinclined, means a lot mate.

Tight dude, dig the evolving synths but I think some of those synths could be changed up (0.55 in particular). Lots of focus on the cymbals too and plenty of moment in the sub. Overall I dig, keep the clean mixes up.

Partial to some minimal DnB myself. The intro is quite bare, would put a dark chord progression in there to keep the listener hooked and bring it in and out of the track. I also think some of the chords and pads you have clash at points, they just seem to come in and out of nowhere. Reminds me of that autonomic stuff D-Bridge was pushing a few years ago!!

I am actually loving the percussion work... I don't think it needs to be more present like someone else said. I just think the kick is a little to powerful.
Sounds great though.

Nice work. Not really feeling the melody and synth but that's just imo. Those drums however are killer.
Melodic deepness from my mind.

great work with those drums. I'm a dubstep head, and the minimal sound really helps ease me into the 160 ish BPM range. This has a really erratic movement to it, but it doesn't suffer from sonic cluttering. I definitely appreciate your technique with that approach.

the synths feel really out of place for some reason

semi agree with johney on the synths, idk how i would fix that tho, the chords sound a bit thin imo, if you havent already maybe double track left/right to make em sound bigger, and maybe let a bit more lows in since the mix has a lot of room to work in anyways
but the drums are quality and so is the sub/kick

Jesus those drums!

Really nicely mixed, everything has its space perfectly.

As said those chords just need filling out and they would sound a lot betting and better fitting with the track.
