Very fluid strokes. I like your approach.
When you're relaxed (most of the time),
the singles are very smooth and dynamic.

Down on the kick, the use of doubles
might add to the presentation. You could
introduce patterns on your hands etc.

You have great talent, I think. Keep it
up. Think in broad statements and let
it flow out of you. Play on!

I am very Impressed...very good...there's a lot going on there in a short period of time...the only thing I would maybe say is that the solo is a bit flat...not in terms of what you're doing because it's very very very very good...but in terms of dynamics...maybe you could experiment with changing dynamics abit...making it a bit more of a roller coaster ride...more softs mixed in with your incredible flurrying would make the solo a bit more powerful than it is...if that's even possible because the solo as it is now is very powerful...listen to a weckl solo for example...he's really good at changing dynamics and swelling from quiet low activity patterns to all out crazy full blast open the flood gates kinda chops...but with what you have I think you'll do super super well...keep it up...you;re definitely somebody to watch out for in the future.

yeh sounds very tight...
maybe dont start with double strokes around the cymbals- as it looks like ur warming up (just my thoughts). u definetly got sum nice chops, i agree with quito, use more dynamics its cool how u change between grips, it sucks when people play sumthing easy with traditional, then swap back to matched for hard stuff. but ur playing hard stuff with both grips. well done dude tho seriously u got sum rocking grooves in there as well as advanced technque...

I'm also vefy impressed especialy of your hitting rate. You are very fast and never loose control of what you're doing. Howoever it would sound much better If you had some mics and a mixer. Than we could hear much more of your feet which also seem to be very fast! Congratulations!!
