atomheartmoo - good intro. i like the feel of the drums, and the panning of the hats is cool. i like the way you flipped the sample, too, it makes for a nice chord progression, but the autofilter is too heavy handed for my taste--i like it better when it's just open, like around 0:35. i would have liked to hear a funkier/bouncier bass line to go with the swinging drums, again just my taste, but the bass sounded a bit plodding and could have been more rhythmically and melodically inventive. anyway, good job, i enjoyed listening a few times through.
enzoeyeris - another good flip of the sample. great work on the drums, especially on the second part--the switch up is nice! the melodies you played with the pitched sample are cool but don't always sit right in the groove, to my ear. the triplet line at 1:31 feels too forward in the mix. i'm just being picky... nice job, very creative.
both beats are good. i generally prefer the vibe of atom's beat, but this being a one-on-one battle, i think Enzo went the extra mile with the creativity and the switch up.
