You've got skills. Welcome to the thread.
As for CC I have none haha. The first couple tracks I listened to it sounds like you put quite a bit of time into them. Pretty solid all around. Only thing I can think of right now is maybe give future tracks more melody/groove instead of just filthy wobbles.
Ya man he has talent for sure. Pretty damn well produced. My only gripe is that it's so generic. He's got the substance, now he just needs some style.
Percussion is real tight and everything sounds good production wise. I'm digging the groove a lot too. But like already said, push yourself man! You gotta break through that ceiling. Risk making a terrible sounding track to make something pro you know? Go outside your comfort zone. Try chopping it up with a couple different synths perhaps? I know there's still work to be done though; I look forward to the finished product.
Loving the intro. But change the setting on your synth (the one that does the Good/Bad/Ugly lead) so it has more glide. The synths and sounds throughout the track are all solid and well made/chosen.
As for the first verse, I think there's a little too much going on. The first minute or so, as well as the second verse, are pretty solid because they're more simple and possess balance and flow. As for the last verse where you bring in that new synth: I think you should cut it out completely. Your intro, first verse, breakdown+build and then second verse can already be good enough to be a nice solid 4 minute long track. Maybe after your second verse just do a little outtro that's like the first minute of the track.
The percussion, namely the kick and clap, lack presence in the first verse. EQing could be better throughout the entire track. Especially on the first verse; there's three different synths all kinda fighting for attention as opposed to being well balanced and harmonic.

I would love to get some good feedback on them. Let me know what i did good and what i could do better on. Thanks guys!
I listened to your newest track:
You're def getting the hang of EQing. Noticeable improvement in the presence/punch of kicks and claps and the overall structure of the track is the best I've seen you do thus far. The levels of everything is pretty decent; fairly good balance all around, but it could be better.
I'd work on 'sculpting' your sounds and synths and bit better (kinda hard to do without monitors). By this I mean try and get rid of all unnecessary frequencies to get rid of any tiny resonances or unwanted sounds; this will make your synths sound way 'cleaner'. Also, give your melody a bit more variation, or throw in some fills/variations after a number of bars.
I think you just need to start putting in more time. Instead of a new track every week, devote a day or two to just making the best synth you can, or making the kick as fat and punchy and nice sounding as possible, etc.
