First off, I noticed you have some out of key/dissonant notes at the end of your phrases in the intro. You might have done this on purpose, but it really stands out to me as a musician.

The mix is decent, but you can do a few things to improve it.
1. The kick sounds like it needs to be compressed a bit more, I would also take some mid-range off in the eq.
2. The bass sounds are really good, but adding some stereo widening to them would take things to a whole new level.

Hope this helps!

I like the idea of the tune and you have carried it off well :)
The Bass sound is dirty and great, and you have a good haunting piano tune to give the track a themed feel :)

A couple of things to note:
- I feel like the snare doesn't come through the mix very well, its not a bad snare, it just needs to be mastered a little more to give more of a punch :)
- I feel that you give a little too much away before the drop and therefore lose that "OH F**K" sort of vibe when it drops, maybe consider filtering the bass sound abit and throwing in a riser ? I know its generic but it works :) Silence is also good for this too (before the drop) :)

Hope this helps :)

thanks man,
i always struggle with them snares, and you are definitely right about giving away too much of the bass sound early. thanks for the feedback:)

very nice chill concept, i could see it more as like post dubstep instead of super hard drums, but still nice job man, keep it up!
