To me, the sound is relatively raw overall, what with the rumbling kick sound, the somewhat basic hihat pattern, the bass/pad synth choices, and the extremely sparse fx work. That's not a bad thing per se, but I think the track could benefit from a little smoothness somewhere, if only to create a contrast against which the rawer elements sound even more paleo Maybe one of the existing elements could be adapted (I think the kick or the pad would be good choices), or something could be added (like an arp, or some more flowing percussion). Does that make sense?
I've been away for a while so sorry for the late reply. I don't really know what to make of your criticism. It sounds like you don't like it that much Kick and drums is what I have most problems with, so I can agree they may not be top notch.
The raw sound was what I was going for with this one. I kinda like it, but maybe your right about creating some contrast. It gets even rawer later on
I think I will give this tune a few more hours and then move on. Can't work on it for ever. Thanks for your comments.
