vocal chants on the 2's +4's would add a lot of energy on this

damn dude, how did you process that bassline? this is cool. i would consider adding some kind of ambience in the background. this is very dry, which isn't a bad thing, but some extra fills and reverb could go a long way. and also, maybe more sub on the kick? it's very heavy in the highs, almost too much so.

this sounds interesting though, i'd love to hear it in the context of a song if you continue with it!

Hey thanks for the comment!! its made with 3xosc and i added an eq, distortion, saturation, fruity flangus, a stereo imager and a compressor, the cool effect in the sound is due to fruity flangus, it adds a very interesting flanger to the sound.
I'll try to adjust the eq's and try to give more poeer to the kick, but i usually add a sub bass and many times in stead of get more power it just makes the kick messy, i cant get a really good result, why is this? Thanks in advance, i'll try to finish this soon!

hmm. are you sidechaining the subbass to the kick (or a ghosted kick for more control)? that way you only have subbass when there is no kick, and vice versa.

yes, but i dont know it seems kinda messy always and i've tried lot of things, i always want to imitate the sub in madeon's tracks, because i really like how he manage it, here is an example
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC_Ya4cY8RQ, the sub is very clear and punchy, also the kick is superb, i guess is all about eq, stereo imaging and good layering but i cant get that sound, i guess it's a matter of practise, thanks for the advices!

Right now all your drums are kinda hanging out in the center, so I might widen them a bit, even if it's just a wide open hat or something.
Also a mid/high synth to go in harmony with the thing you have already would be nice and could help the piece move forward a bit melodically if you know what I mean.
Good work!

yes, a synth could add the harmony to improve the musicality of the song, thank you for the answer!! and i'll try to wide up drums a bit with a hihat
