    I wanna hear a deeper base in the beginning man.
    Or maybe it´s not a tough beat song? :)

    Dude I know! I wanted to make it dubstep but the crew insisted on making it a "commercial" track...

    I can give you an example of a deeper intro base. ;)

    This song has it.

    18 seconds in around is the base. :)

    As a producer myself ill give my own verdict :

    Overall its a good remix but I think you have focused more on the vocals than using your skill of making a pretty good beat. Maybe you could increase the bass but listening to anything on youtube sounds nothing like a mixed down edit !

    I think you should maybe have more of a impact from the build up from 1.00 then when it hits 1.28 have something more of "bang" I felt like I was being lifted by one hell of a build up and left a little bit surprised and wanting more, I would say bring the drop of 1.57 to around 1.28 to give it that "dance you fuckers" impact and maybe drag it out for another 5 seconds then back into the track again.............. If you dj as well you will know what I mean?

    As for more bass, you cant really judge that on youtube but I would stay clear of that as I can imagine thats a very dirty bass line on the right monitors.............................. 7/10 for me, Only because I got left feeling hard done by when 1.28 seem to drop into a breakdown rather than a finishing that awesome build up!


    Im guessing your a fruity loops user?

    Producer here myself, but I'm more geared toward top 40 stuff.

    Overall, its cool. It need something else to make it "pop" out of all the other dance mixes out there, maybe a Killer synth line, something a little more "rough" sounding.

    Its not a bad mix though, pretty sweet in fact. But it needs a little more "edginess" added onto it!

    Ofcourse, every producer/dj/whatever's ear is different, so go with what you feel is right for your mix in the end.

    Good luck bro!

    BTW, I see your from the Chi. North side perhaps??

    Great remix. Listened on your page.

    Have you ever tried to make trance vocal cover songs? I just love em.

    With hardbass and nice female voice. :) Uptempo!
