I didn´t have time to peep all your tracks in depth, but what I def noticed is that your drums sound very stiff and that I wasn´t a big fan of the mixes on the tracks I played. Maybe you wanne try and experiment with a lil more swing on the drums.

I did like the way ou flipped that one hair sample, even tho I have heard most of those samples being used before, but I guess that´s pretty common these days.

Keep at it.

samples are very thin and the drums are overly stiff. id turn some of that quantizing off. u shouldnt have to quantize everything. this is something that took me a while to get a grip on a hip hop beat the drums and the groove are the most important things in the track. if either one is bad it can ruin the track as a whole

I like the atmosphere and feel of the tracks. I think like other people on here said it wouldn't hurt to put some more groove in the drums and fatten em up a little. I hit you up on MYSPACE too.

Experiment on different varieties of mixing techniques, especially for beefing up those samples used. Play around with delays, and GOOD reverbs, etc.

You'd be surprised at how much better a beat maker you can become once you learn more about the ins and outs to great mix engineering.
