Re: [DnB - Jump Up/Neuro] Neuralsphere - (Untitled)
The low end definitely needs tidying up as it's a bit muddy and too much. Feels quite congested with ideas at times which I can imagine is part of the reason for this. I'd say it starts off too busy right from the off too which would make it hard for mixing. The melody gets lost from the aggressive bass when they play together. Personally I'd say this track would work better without the melody full stop as there's something that for me just doesn't gel with the darker aspect of the track. The dark bit does have that neuro feel though I think you're trying to aim for.
There's a lot of low end during the intro too which is usually better to bring in either subtly or just have none until the point at which the track properly drops into it's flow. This is quite often 90% of the time at the 1min 6 second mark or 48 bars. Some people drop in after 32 which is approx 44 secs. I think on yours it comes in heavy around 22 seconds, and I've done this before in the past which can often be easier to leave out until later. It's a bit easier if you are used to mixing tracks as a DJ frequently as the structures start to become natural. I'd say maybe try even studying a few layouts of existing tracks and fit your track into the blueprint of another so you know the intro and outro are more DJ friendly and just mix better. It's a very good thing to try out.
Sorry if it sounds quite harsh but I'm quite often straight with people on mixes.
