It's good man, personally I think there were too many pitch bends. I kept wanting to hear more melody in the drops but it just kept coming in with more pitch bends.

The glitched vocals were cool but I felt like the rhythm/chopping was too random and made listening a little uneasy.

The mixing sounded pretty good to me, though some wobbles or synths sounded louder than others, maybe try compressing them all together by sidechaining them all to a mixer track with a compressor? Though if you're real hazy on the whole "compression" thing then maybe just adjust the channel/mixer slot volumes individually. Unless you're happy with different volumes :P

Anyway besides those points it's a good song imo, keep it up man!

yeah i know, i repeated the same thing each drop lol. but thanks for the feedback man! and the vocals are a little off beat because i didn't timestretch it. i don't know much about compression, but when i listen to it in my headphones it sounds perfect, then i upload it and realize that some sub basses and sounds are louder than the others. but, again, thanks for the kind words. and i am already following you on soundcloud :4:

One thing I would do, right after the drop, is just modify some of the rhythms you use with the bassline, keep the sounds, keep the notes, just in every 4 bar pattern, have a slight modification in the groove of the bassline, just give things more of a flow.

Also, when you mixdown, go less for volume, and more for balance, try bringing all your levels down, don't let anything go higher than -6 db in the mixer to save headroom, It's better to have a quiet but clean mix as you can just turn the speakers up. A loud and messy one just bothers people. And please don't for get your sub, I can't really tell if you've got one on this tune, it's late so I can't turn my speakers up too high, but even if you do, I think your mids are way high (in reference to my mixdown point), I should be able to turn things up and feel the buzz of the woofer on my feet at least.

i'll take your advice man. i'm new to producing and i'm not up to par on mastering and having the right sound levels. but there is subbass, i struggle with making it sound louder. but thanks for listening!

How are you making your sub?
Just a single sine wave right? You just need to EQ other instruments in that case, to make more room for it.

Just use one sinewave in any synth, it'll make the sub cleaner and clearer
