Here's my first try and drum & bass. Sorry if it sounds too repetitive. I just need a few pointers and what I could do better next time. Thank you!

I lol'd. lol I thought the vocals here were unnecessary. Throughout the whole track, in other words. There wasn't a melody at all. I was expecting to hear something at least. The percussion should have been chopped up a lot. I didn't feel this really had any syncopation like a lot of D&B or jungle does. And speaking of genres, it didn't sound like either one of those. Please, whatever you do, never use the presets in FL Studio. Unless you know for a fact you can make them sound good, which I don't even know how that could ever happen. If you lack any knowledge of music theory, then I would suggest going to a college that teaches you this, go online and look up the topic, or buy an Idiot's Guide to Music Theory. Either one works.
Don't take this the wrong way. This is criticism. If I had said this was great, I wouldn't be doing you any good. I would be lying to you. If this hurts you in any way, I'm sorry. I'm not aiming to fire you down or make you quit. My intentions, as well as anybody elses who says this, is to help you get better at making music.
