The horns sound good to me, but then again, I have fake ears.

down with the horns, also down with your tracks.

Description Not Related Except In Spirit is still your best.

that track makes me funk it up in my room

I like your posting style, and your track too. This is really very high quality work.

I'm all for the cold ending but that one is whack. Spend the extra bar at the end just letting the ticks resonate out.

The trumpets do sound fake as hell, but they are okay here.

I was gonna recommend doubling the trumpet line a 5th down, but it sounds like you are doing some already.

The droning tones, maybe make those a bit softer, and double it up an octave higher, and then make the moving tones brighter and louder, with a sharper attack and a faster decay.

Just a thought.

I like this track. Now, I'm not listening with the best headphones right now, so I'm probably way off-mark, but I would suggest trying a version with the bassline one octave lower; or better yet, add a second soft, dub-like bassline one octave lower with a low-pass filter cut off at around 70 hz and adjust the volume appropriately.

Anyway, nice track!
