[EDM] Dark Clouds

Hey IDMF, check out my new track.. I would really appreciate a fresh pair of ears to have a listen..
Any comments or suggestions are much appreciated!!

The synthlines are toxic biohazard and I used various samples for the percussion..

The drums sounded really dry. They could use a little compression/reverb imo. The snare could be layered with a tom or get a little boost around 250 Hz to give it some meat. As of now, it sounds really thin. The high synth playing at 1:45 sounds really cheesy to my ears. The bass during the first break is nice though

Overall the song needs some production fine-tuning and could perhaps use more varied melodies? Though it's not a big thing here.

Re: [EDM] Dark Clouds

not getting enough kick in the intro i dont think.. also i recommend layering another snare over the one you have now.. and then when it does fills, like not really strong snare hits you can keep that other sample out, it'd be nice. not a huge fan of the synths there, not really my style. i like your break and filtersweep and white noise swells... the ride cymbal that comes in at 2.36 i like a lot..the 3rd drop is pretty cool having set the scene for it.. interesting casual acid/fundustrial and steppy mashup. good outro too, smooth exits.

Re: [EDM] Dark Clouds

Hi, I listened to your track, I liked it, it sounds clean to my ears but, I would add some more melodies with other synths in some parts and I don't like the percussive synth which starts at 1.33, I would add more modulations to it, it is too static in my opinion.Nice track btw

This track is okay. It started out well, and about a minute or so in I expected it to get better than it did. I expected it to go into a different direction than it did I guess.

Pretty good, the bass sounds a little off when it comes in around :32 or so imo,

Re: [EDM] Dark Clouds

The kick could stand to have a lot more low end, and I would suggest cutting as much as you can on the higher-frequency percussion and synths to allow room for the clickiness of the kick to come through during the (chorus?). I don't really have a problem with the synths, although something enters the song at 1:01 that starts creating a lot of sweeping white noise that I would recommend be reigned in slightly so that it doesn't diminish the higher frequencies in the percussion as much.
