Its Ok, but I think lacking a robust kick drum to carry it along. Or some other propellant to carry it along.
A track like this needs a good balance between familiarity and enough surprise and uniqueness to make it work. You've got the familiarity but there's no surprises or anything unique to make it anything other than predictable.

Hi Bansaw,
Thanks for taking the time to listen to it.
I found it challenging to mix & agree it could do with a better kick drum etc.
My first attempt into this style of music so fairly happy with your comments.
Hopefully i'm on the right track.

I do find the making more enjoyable than the mixing of a tune!

Regards
Mike

interesting song. very old school beat, but it works. i think the song has driving force. it doesn't feel static.
and the beginning reminded me of one of the songs from jean-michel jarre's 'teo e tea' :)
