Much valued feedback lads, I will look at the bass again as I still don't get what a couple of you are saying about the bass playing an off note.
My idea for this and other dnb tracks to come is to present a bassline which goes where people do not expect, I enjoy the tension this creates, but perhaps I've fucked it here and cannot see the woods for the trees.
Meriter I value your honest feedback there but alas I think I'm probably not going to be able to alter the mix now, I've already spent what feels like a lifetime on this. I have to say my home mastering chain is probably part of the issue but hopefully decent mastering might give it a warmer more rounded sound (but I realise the mix is still the critical determinant). My vocals are what they are, and I hate working with other singers as it's a pain for me personally.
I agree it is somewhat over produced, this has been a learning curve for me. It has changed what I will do on my next dnb track in that I wont seek to over cook and 'awesomize' every last sound becauser this can lead to a wall of sound over cooked zizzle fest. I ought to know this by now, but I'm probably the slowest learner of anyone on this forum.
My next dnb track should sound more pleasing as I'm taking real care not to overdo everything and I am keeping each fader nice and low.
Will also make the vocals less repetitive, less synthetic.
