Hey JC
Listen and type...
Nice use of flange type effect in the intro.
The bass sounds a little off for some reason. Though this maybe the response of my speakers.
Excellent drums. Nice variety, well mixed and sequenced. Definitely one of your strengths.
Gentle evolution of the track.
I have said this before of your tracks JC (I think), stick a vocal over the top and it would sound amazing.

I enjoyed this incidentally..

Peace dude..

Paul

Yeah, bass a bit off. Like the overall tribal drum rhythm a lot. As many of your tracks you have very subtle transients which makes it excellent for biking :) and perhaps (I agree with ambtax1) mixing it with a vocal?

I like ambient and chord progression, simple and efficient ! :)
I'm agree with amtax1, try vocal it's fun :)
(with renoise record feature that force you have a sample duration equal to x pattern,
you can work your vocal with 9xx to conserve the best part of it !)

Oh man this song has such an awesome groove, I really like it. Great rythms and drum programming. Mellows also nice.

Suggestions for Improvement: I really missed a chord change in this one. Your Bassline hangs from start to end in G.
This creates a strong suspense which cries for salvation. Indeed I expcted a change to C or Am/Em or whatever at 2/3 of the song.

Regarding mix: you have a lot of channels with stuff going on. I think the usage of panning instead of stereoX would dramatically improve the mix.
Maybe also less reverb for the drums, or maybe a grouped reverb (send track) for the drums. Multiple reverbs for each channel are isolated form each other.
A group channel glues things together.

But the groove ist sooo cool ! Nice one
