    Those vocals are sounding awesome!!! Did you do them yourself? I would recommend using a multiband distortion plugin on the bass to get it crisper. I would also put some more fat sounding drum sounds into the track. If you wanted, side-chaining the whole track would sound nice, at least in my opinion!! There is also a couple place where the track distorts. A couple more groovy synths or more would help out a lot. Maybe some more usage of the stereo field. I think the kick could come up as well.

    The Matt Schwartz futuremusic mag youtube videos are great for learning some electro production!!!

    That sounds good. I like the feel of the track at the vocal loop.

    That distortion almost sounds like computer processor over load at the begining.

    Maybe it is just clipping though. What software are you using?

    Other than this is pretty sweet, I agree the drums could be a bit more boosted.

    Only one little thing also is I would leave a bit more on the outro just make it easier to mix into the next track in a mix.

    Try the Exp Digital Delta Series multiband distortion vst. It is a free bee and you can find the link on the url below. Use it to try and make the bass crunchier. A lot of guys use omicide or camelphat, which are also multiband distortion plugins. I have omicide and I think it is the bomb!!! Omicide also has student discounts which would make it like $60 or something like that.

    Haha, that part was actually intentional. I have a bit-crusher and a distortion thing being automated, almost like im completely destroying the track and then bringing it back to life. (Yay Jesus)

    I’m using ableton and only the built in FX.

    Yeah, I will definitely leave more on the end, I might do an extended mix as well…this version was just intended to be to-the-point.

    Thanks for the comments!

    ya bro. I thought it would be useful to make a list. All of the vsts and programs on that list are great. So they should all work out awesome. Many of them I think are must haves!!!
