Too lo-fi? :lol: Obviously the bass is kinda muddy and the kick doesn't really come through but I was going for that kind of lo-fi rumbly vibe.

I really like the stabs man! Good friggin work on those things. Interesting enough to do some project without the kick at all. Just some droning low-end with those things... I'm not feeling the relation between the kick+bass plus the rest I guess is what I'm trying to say. Im not feeling the groove.

I think the noise/ low fi-ness around the hats are a step too far. It sounds a whole lot better when they are out.

Overall the hiss is just too much. I don't think you've quite nailed the whole 'found on a cassette buried beneath moritz van oswald's childhood home'.

I mean it's a nice track for sure, but dial back the hiss.

Damnit, and I thought I was so close :lol:

The hiss thing seem to very taste dependent, some of my favorite dub (techno) tracks have hiss much louder than in this track. I think the level in the track is fine but it could be probably be improved in terms of texture and dynamics.

Nice vibe man agree with the hiss, try halving the volume and adding modulation, I think it should be there but almost imperceivable.

The hiss bothered me a little to be honest, would you mind post the tracks you mentioned that have a louder hiss? I got curious. I really dig the rumbly/muddy low end lo-fi aesthetic + the hats, but somehow the stabs delays bothered me a bit, i feel that they could be a little less resonant, maybe? I don't know, but i missed a bit clarity on them. Just my opinions as this clearly seems to be the aesthetic you were looking for. Nice track! :) Cheers

I think this one is a good example, one of my favorite dub techno tracks of all time.

I like the arrangement and looseness of the track, but the kick and bass as you've said needs a fair bit of work
really quiet upload also

I think this could have parts with a more sustained bassline.
