[This reflects just my opinion,english isn't my native language]

The mixing is brilliant. Love how you switch the focus during the song so everything swirls and mixes and moves together. The short outro is very cool. However, the intro was quite uninteressting. The drums and the bass were way too uninvolved for DnB in my opinion. In this context, i think the synths were too full and rich, if that makes any sense. That does not matter much as the song progresses, just ruined the intro for me. The bass, although with a great basic sound, was almost boring to listen too. Especially with that 'drum loop' playing endlessly, only interupted by some very short 'breaks'. The bass in the end seemed to just sit there and made me miss the awesome movements the track had before.
Great work nonetheless, i really enjoyed that flight!

Nice track Bully. Lovely wash of sounds from the pads.
Drums have a cool urgency which counters the pads. Maybe you could vary this a bit...
Vocals are a nice addition.
Well done!

I don't know if its these headphones or not, but there seems to be a little too much high end harshness, and even a little distortion.
Maybe I need to listen on a good set of speakers, but thats my first impression.
Apart form the mixing/mastering I like the arrangement.

1st impression, nice wide pads, beat drops well, love the little under bass on the beat, but it does get a touch submerged under the pads and doesn't really cut through enough, maybe a slight increase in volume on the second section of the beat to give it a breathing edge? Would also like a touch more variation in there, maybe some double speed bits to change it up or the same beat just different percussion just to liven the overall feel.
Overall, nice :tu: :D

Liquid DnB, or very close to it, imho. I just let it wash over me 4 or 5 times. I liked the little variations in the harmonies made by the different instruments. Dreamy stuff.

A perfect tonic after a day spent re-configuring a database with more of the same tomorrow.

Good work :)

Shades of Goldie's Timeless! Enjoyed it!

I would've liked the drums to be a bit more upfront in the mix? Just a 'touch' mind!

Maybe a vocal layer or some sort of lead synth line entering a bit earlier is something to think about?

It DOES work well as it stands, though!

Maybe you could extend it beyond those late vocal entries and turn into a 20 minute epic D&B track like Inner City Life! :0)

Thank you guy's. Always great to hear your comments and feedback,really appreciate it! :hug:

@ChamMusic Ah Goldie and his epics. :D His hour long track "Mother" was pretty good as I remember. He certainly came a long way since being a teaboy at Moving Shadow.
