Needs more 303! Then again, everything needs more 303 ;D
Im digging the attitude on this one, It's like Acid/Jump Up. My only suggestions are that you need to sub out more. maybe like an 808 playing the same notes under the melodies or if there is a bass part specifically lower the octave. however you gotta do it. Get it low.
The next note is on the drums. the snare is good. but the kick is somehow off imo. maybe throw a chopped amen in there somewhere to give it that "flavor"
Then I think it's a go.
Mind posting the Caustic file? I'd like to take a look at that bass melody.

First release out now!! https://www.mixcloud.com/jthabrain/mind-invasion-03-jthabrain/
I have the fixed version. I fixed the kick not going through enough by adjusting things on the beat box: Doing DSP on everything. Adjusting punch, decay, and volume. I also removed two soft bassy kick notes that cause confusion onto the main kick on the end of the pattern. That part when it repeats the pattern.
For the bass part, I put the master volume low, but I'm going to master the song out of caustic/not from caustic so you don't get to hear bass just yet.
I'm not releasing the file right now, but how about later? I'm finishing up with adding part 2.
Sounds like a plan!
I'm putting a modular with acid. It has bass in it. It's psychedelic and subby.
Nice. Yeah, You dont want to loose that psychedelic bouncy feel the song has. That is the main vibe.
Sweet. Ill tinker with it. Maybe give you another release option if dig what i come up with.
You can remix if you want. I'm still finishing my version.
sounds good to me.
Oops you replied too early. I was editing my comment. I'm still sticking with my version. You can remix it.
Ok cool. So ill remix then.
Yep. Got it.
Really liking this, that groove is pretty fantastic, I am presuming you are still working on this, I will look forward to the finished result
Sup brotha so i took a solid whack at it. In the version i created i added some (okay quite a bit actually) of sub texture. Plus some custom breaks to mesh with your original drum pattern. Sped the track up a bit. Annnnnnnnnnnnnd some other stuff i forget now. Im giving you the caustic track in case you wanna tame my levels a bit. If u do shoot it back to me after. Im going to extend it out for live mixing. I think it will do well on the dancefloor. I created it to your original length.
Im thinking some atmospheric elements will tie it all together nicely. Thats up next.
Alright. I'll mix it some more.
Feel free to do anything.
