Compress the living shit out of that kick man, get it pounding for this kinda music.
And give it a bassline, but make sure you either duck it or EQ it so that the bassline and the kick arent filling the same frequencies...
There are some MAJOR clashes in some of the notes between 2 of the parts in there a couple of times too.

Your all full of shit. This has M+M written all over it. The Clap is the feature of the track you dumbos.
Hey dude the track is ok. You dont need to beef up the kick these guys here are telling you to do that because that is what they expect to hear in a track such as this. I like the fact its different and you get points for different. get rid of a the high pitch flute type noise and replace with a rhyme and you would have a fairly contemporary and decent commercial hip hop track.
dont listen to the jokers on here most havent a clue what their talking about and if this is really a very early effor from yout I think its not bad at all. Your ear knows what it wants its just your lack of experience letting you down a little but you have commercial sensibility so you could do well. The bleep guys here will sell maybe ten downloads over a ten year period. your track there would sell a lot more even just as it is.
instead of websites concentrate on the music first.

No that would make it tiny.
When I see comments such as your this is when I know its an amateur. Sure comps are used on kik drums but COMPRESSING THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF ONE KIK DRUM WILL NOT MAKE IT MASSIVE. You need to layer kicks and eq thats all. controling dynamics of a sampled kik drum that never changes level is not needed.
im so fucking sick of the amateur bullshit I constantly read in this place especially when it comes to compressors.
Lives comps can never make anything sound big. A distressor will if used correctly.

i asked for technical opinions... opinions like the track is garbage cannot help... Take some music composition classes is a real good piece of advice... but still it doesn't tell me what makes the song garbage, like those who took their time to share their knowledge they gave their opinions on the technical side of the track and so far that helped me out.

first off, try to end the track before the sun comes up twice.

second, where are you getting your sounds from? Try to use some sample cd's (loops) at first to get a better idea on how to go about constructing tracks.

turd - There are NO changes in your ''song'' so try to have some breaks, or at least get that Zelda flute out of there once in a while.

kinda sucks actually.

but everyone sucks at first.

I think the kick sounds a bit boxy, so i would take off any reverb you have and layer the kick with some other kick samples. Eq the combination of kicks to get the kick sound you are after.

negative eq around 300 hz is normally a good starting point to reduce the boxy sound.

Keep working on the rhythm section. Drums need to be hitting a lot harder. It sounds like a cool joint but I would work on the Drums they need some more beef to them. The bassline needs to be pumped up. Think about adding another element of interest to the melody to keep the track from being too simple and thus boring. Keep practicing, practice makes perfect.
