1 is more interesting. The intros didn't capture my attention long enough to get to the hook. Maybe a ten second intro max. And the pacing is kind of slow, feels like trudging through mud. Keeep Going!

ps. There should be some padding in the beginning, a half second gap before the song starts.

Thanks, what about the "drop" section?

Here for the gear
 

My vote for the first as well.

While I dig the writing and the intro of the second, the sound(stage) is somewhat weaker: Take the bass: When there is this small upwards pitchbending the bass sounds tiny, not like something big breaking through the surface and dropping back but it's more like something that is there, at the same space just becoming weaker, smaller.

I feel like you could use some more contrast to create some depth. Maybe try to rework your space: There is this hall reverb in the back but that's about it.
Also, some more distortion on the bass?

It seems like I have already seen you here. What a coincidence.
Anyway, thank you.


Best of luck,

Beat 1 is clean, beat 2 percussion is killing it. Both very different and hard to say which one is better than the other because they both have things the other doesn’t, and unfortunately those differences don’t qualify either or as being better than the other. I think they both fall into same category. I think u have what it takes to start something new, and not continue to ride a wave of production thats starting to crash into the shore.

"Clean" is almost never pejorative. But... Do you mean "killing it" in a good way (like "killer price"), or a bad way (like it is killing the vibe)?
