Hey there!

It seems to my your bass is louder than the kick, and I hear a very loud click on each bassnote start.
I think you should point to have more power coming from the kick and less from the bass

For the full track, the drum section is a bit shallow, not much going on.

You have a nice array of small random sounds and blips, but everything has a big reverb and delays, everything is in it's own little space, making your mix very spaced out. A little less on the mix know, of carefully selecting a few elements (across the timespan) with less delay effect would help the whole mix sit together.
For example, around 7:00, you have less sounds and most of them are a little lower, which helps the beat come to the front, and defines a very nice ambient.

Mix wise, I think you could lower all the synths a small bit, which in turn would help place the beat on top in the front

Not much is happening on the beat throughout the tune, 2 beats and little breaks or plays with this. The beat marks the tempo, and playing with the tempo (even if only to go back to exactly the same) is a ton of fun for the listener

Keep it up, and show us more!           Super Banana Sauce http://www.soundcloud.com/knocz

Hello, thanks for your feedback!

Yeah, indeed, it's what i notice listening to the previews. In a first phase, i wanted to increase the bass level; now i don't know why it's louder! Though i could simply decrease its level.
About the click, maybe is it due to the enveloppe settings (i want to get a clicky bass sound...but maybe it is too much), maybe is it also due to the multiband distorsion, i've to check it again. How is it hard to mix a such low bass!
The kick, made with bazzism, is also a bit low (normal you gonna tell me, it's a kick ) but i'd like to give it more presence. Maybe i'll made a new one shot, maybe it will sound better when the bass will be softer.

I also wanted to follow a kind of "dub" way to make evolve some sounds and give them this ambient feeling. It's why some synths see their delay level increase, especially the resonant one. I've tried to carefully cut potenially unwanted/ masking frequencies on the reverb.

I 'll send you an updated version quickly!
