I really like the intro of the first track, it builds up perfectly to the really nice and vibey "drop". I don't really like the snare you chose to use, but overall the track is really nicely done, and has some serious vibes going on :W:

Vibes on the second track are also pretty nice, but the drum samples aren't really my cup of tea and the drum pattern could use some variation.

Both of the tracks have really nice atmosphere, they're clean (mixwise) and they move forward really nicely.
These are my two cents, keep it up :4:

Thanks for the feedback! :D Will be tweaking them a little before I put the entire EP up in full, feel they're probably about 90% complete so I felt they could do with being showcased :)

Really like the atmosphere and production on both these tracks, very chilled. Looking forward to the EP.

Great mixdown on both tracks. Everything stands out nicely! I really like the groove in "sea of stars". Good job!

well done. nice flow and clear mix. in my opinion the bassline on "sea of stars" could have a bit more of the high frequencies (:

fantastic tracks, i enjoyed both. the first track has vibes, and i like the snare you've used. great old skool vibes.

the second one sounds a little thin i feel though. the snare definitely could use some tweaking! the vocal adds a lot to the track, almost a kahn-like atmosphere. big!

Thanks for the comments man :D Yeah some work is needed to fine-tune the tracks but I'm happy with how they are at the moment :) Glad you're feeling them! :D

The new track sounds really good! I love the bassline and the vibes are excellent as usual. Just as I was beginning to think that it lacks atmosphere, the glassy pluck sounds takeover and it's just what I was looking for =) Great job!

I like the third track a lot. Overall, I would pay a little more attention to the mix of the drums, they need to stand out a bit more. The drums on the 4th track are nice, they have a little more swing to them..

Ok somehow I missed your update on this. I quite like the drums on exigent, and the whole vibe is cool. I loove Fault her. The melody is nice, the vibe is excellent and the breaky bizness is really good and fits amazingly. Both tracks are mixed pretty nicely imo. :) Good job once again!

Your first 4 tracks are alright, but the one that stood out for me was Fault Her, the drums really compliment the basslines and melody, and it flows really well.
