At a quick glance. Some nice darkish elements. The kick needs a lot more presence in the mix, and more thump, the breakbeat needs the high end boosting a bit.

i like this - nice dark, ravey, roller
very reverb heavy but not a bad thing if that's the sound you want
can't really help with the technicalities but also thought the break needs to be strengthened somehow
nothing like your track but the dog sample made me think of this

What's cool about this is that the Intro kind of reminds me of Jacksons', "Thriller" a little bit. Not much of a Mixable Intro, but I like the way that oldschool Breakbeat comes in.

I like the key changes and overall mood of the tune.... the tune sounds a bit quiet but it sounds like you haven't Limited it yet. I turned my volume up loud and it sounds balanced enough to me. I suppose the kick drum could have a bit more presence.

Your Breakdown at 2:36 had me wishing for a sinister sounding spoken word sample.

All in all a fun oldschool sounding tune.
