The kick and snare are solid, mate, good job. You're missing the ghost notes and hi-hats for the DnB shuffle feel.

That Dragonborg dude makes it sound easy, but it really isn't.

Hi-hats, ghost snares... a break layered underneath... maybe a heavily processed Amen Break...

Forget about the tune for now. Mute everything except the drum lines so we can hear em. Doesn't sound like you got the shuffle quite right yet.

I hope you don't mind this edit I have made... the timing is not perfect but this is the part of your bassline that stands out to me... focus on that... you basslines really need to be more focused...

yeah no problem ;) ok bare with me please I'm not great at understanding and need baby steps, so in simple terms is this just sounding noise to you? I just checked I got 3 sounds going on , so does it need its own space away from the drums, example what really is needed please, im not good at multi tasking and get confused easy

I don't mean how it sounds just the pattern... sounds a bit random in the original tune... take a good pattern an use it throughout but add some variation every 4th or 8th bar... maybe some filtering that changes over it... can never have too much filtering.

right so less pattern on the bassline use them two highlighted instead and use effects to make it different throughout the tune at various stages

ok I give it a go in due course :thumbs_up: ;)

Eh... you used the part of the bassline that I didn't really like... I don't really care for that "wump wump wump" sound but love the "bawum - bowah" sounds in the sample edit I had made.

I just think you need to clean up those snare rolls... perhaps using a lighter snare sound would help...

And by a lighter snare... I just mean for the rolls... keep the heavy snare for the main hits...
