Had a quick listen last night and my initial view is that the snare seems a bit low in the mix. Maybe could do with some gated 'verb on it for that authentic 80's vibe, but that is a question of taste. The HH seemed quite prominent in comparison.

Spotted you over on Hijack as well!

I agree with Richie, that Snare could use some work.A brighter sound with more 'crack' would be better IMO.

I think there's also some scope to develop the track as it progresses i.e bring in some new elements and drop out others to create interest.

Lastly, it's screaming out for some vocals even if it's just samples.

Nice one guys!

Yeah I definitely need to work on my 80s style snares. Needs more 'snap' and might give the gated verb a go...

Thanks for the feedback
