Tried to create a melodic uplifting drum and bass tune. Used FLStudio 20.

First minute was slow for me. You could chop that in half. Nice build at 1:01>
1:08> very nice section. 1:52 very good breakdown.
2:14-3:18 too samey. For me, something in this time period needs to happen. eg. leave the kick in for a few bars, take the snare etc out. Go up or down in the octave range. Go a 3rd up, a 5th up in the melody. etc. Just something to maintain the interest and keep me engaged there.
Overall though - liked it :tu:

is it not more trance than dnb?
i think trying to make it uplifting took it elsewhere as dnb is usually fairly dark, at least the stuff i know.
nice piece of work none the less, very well mixed and a varied enough arrangement for the dance floor 8)
