I wanted to try making a hardstyle kick with only a heisenberg. I decided to make a short track around it as well. Would love honest feedback/criticism from the hardcore techno community. How did I do? What could I have done better? I'm a newbie when it comes to this genre so please give crit. :D

    if anything this is more of an oldschool hardcore kick rather than hardstyle. Hardsyle kicks are a little hard to get right whether it's reverse bass, euphoric or rawstyle. Also bump that bpm up to 170 and add some more fills and breaks in the kickrolls :) otherwise this is a nice job man

    this track would sound good if everything were overdriven and there was no 303 all at around the 200bpm mark, it would sound very underground and industrial!

      Thanks a lot. I really appreciate your feedback. You were right on the money with the bpm. I feel like the 303 hook playing at 155 bpm puts this track into psytrance territory.

      I'll remix this with a higher bpm. My main concern is that by taking out the bpm, the track will sound more empty. What are some cool things I could add to the mix, while still keeping the track sounding industrial?
