Hey there. Just appeared in my box and I thought I would give you a feedback for one of your new tracks, which hopefully will help you further.
Mixing & Mastering
The track in general is mixed well. I do realizea little dullness at the end of the higher frequences, but I think that's because you did not upload the best quality here, which is fine.
But in overall it sounds clean and expressive.
There are two things I do notice though. While the clap is all fine in the predrop, the snare kind of gets lost in the drop. It lacks of strength. It either is too quiet or it gets mushed by the kick as it plays at the same time. A bit of a more powerful snare would be cool. After a while I noticed that also the hihats lost their presence during the drop. At first I thought they were just not there. They are barely noticable. A nice hihat or cymbal playing in between the kick and snare would have given it some more of flair.
Structure and Phrasing
Nice overall structure. A good intro leading into the predrop smoothly. The break also is done very well - increasing action. There is just a little thing missing during the bar leading to the drop (1:10-1:11; 2:34-2:35). Maybe a vocal or the baseline already preparing and gaining volume. It sounds a bit empty.
I do like the switch to the full-time step after the drop, it gives it more variation.
The transition into the outro isn't as smooth as the transition into the drop. I think the single kick is a bit overkill. I would have either removed it or replaced it by a low sub.
It's a bit of shame that you repeated the same break. An alternative one for the second half would have been nice.
Melody and Instrumentation
The chosen percussion and sounds are good and I really like your choice of the dubstep bass sounds. They were quite cool to listen to!
I think another instrument/sound would be nice to add at the second half of the predrop - maybe a high pitched synth/lead that plays faster notes.
I really like the endings every 4 bars within the drop. They are creatively done and different ideas have been played out. I like the EQ-play within the track, it definitely adds spice to it. The FX sounds are well chosen quite as well.
Please don't get irritated by the negative points I mentioned. These are relatively small things. I just thought I would tell you these as we all gain experience and skill by receiving (good) critism. :P
Giving the whole piece 4.5 stars since as I said, these are really small things I enjoyed listening to it quite much nonetheless. :)
