Disconnected Legacy - Updated with better drums and mix

Not sure if I like this to be honest, it didn't take very long to make, and there's not much to it. However, it's aggressive and noisy.

Crits and comments as always (good or bad), welcomed.

Edit: Sharpened up the drums, they sound loads better now, so there's the distorted bit crushed drums and a sharper drum in the mix too just giving it a sharper edge but keeping the crushed sound, also improved the mix to make different elements sing through a bit clearer

I must admit, the first

I must admit, the first listen, I wasn't quite sure, but I had another couple of listens, and it's really grown on me...there's a little sound in thee background that for me I would prefer a little bit more brought out,,,but...yeah it's a real grower, more sounds and what have you become more apparent, the more listens I have...good stuff

yeah ok a bit tighter, i

yeah ok a bit tighter, i would still like that background synth just a little bit forward in the mix, but honestly that's just for me...love the dynamics in this, the quiet part at 1:28 then jumping back in at 1:45 really strong change back...good stuff...

Thanks guys, I think I'm going to leave this one for a bit now, it's that endless tweaking that means you never get anything finished! Time to move onto something new!

Two thumbs up. Background

Two thumbs up. Background synth could be louder in my opinion. This is my first listen, and the drums are good the way they are I think for now. Just present enough but not in the front. Enjoyed it.

Never heard the Deus Ex soundtrack, however, as you well know the others I might have heard now and again!

Thanks, pretty happy with the drums now, the first mix they were just too muddy, after adding a sharper drum track it really made them pop!

After hearing this on Simons radio show I might cool the flanger down a bit which may help the other synth lines shine through a bit better.
