Everything sounds nice but the kick and the clap, imo. Clap sounds too artificial (might be my partiality towards a 909 clap) and not very suited to the atmosphere of the track, which is very nice. Very nice progression as well, and vocals complement the track well. Might use a kick and clap more suitable for dub techno, however, as the ambiance of the track suggests.
Cheers, would you believe that artificial sounding clap was made by yours truly by recording my own hands clapping! The whole reason I did a live recorded clap was because all the samples and synth made claps I tried sounded too artificial. I'm not entirely happy with it and your post has prompted me to explore the clap again.
Now this kick thang, grrrrrr, we all seem to struggle with this, I spent a lot of time making it, I wanted it too sound kinda dusty and small yet with a decent thud. What sort of kick did you have in mind for this? I notice a lot of recent techno employs this sort of dusty not too 'big' kick.
Glad you liked the general atmosphere, I always strive for atmosphere above all else.
