Updated: I revised the track with some changes. Mainly, I cut the kick back a bit, added some reverb to the hats, removed a layer, adjusted the rhythm for one of the arps, tweaked the ending, and scaled back some of the parts.

Hi there,

For this track, I went super heavy on sound design using Sytrus in FL Studio. Spent about 2/3 of the time crafting out soundscapes and arps. I felt like they fit well with the theme, but I leave that to you to decide.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for listening.

Transitions cool JKIllz. I know everyone says let the kick through but maybe not as strong ( I think when the kick is too strong it cuts out your midrange stuff, answers on a postcard). Its hard though as everyones sound setup is different. Actually listened again and thought slightly more verb on hihats. : )) Overall very good though, being nitpicky.

Intense rhythms. Very cool arps and bass. Great sound design.

Maybe the kick is too loud?

I can appreciate that Layzer, glad I didn't ruin it with the minor tweaks lol. I actually posted it on another forum and seemed like the feedback was consistent. I know my ears will play tricks on me too :P

Love it, groovy and trippy. The sound design is absolutely crazy

I'm not sure about the lead part (the one which starts around 3:58) - the synth itself sounds good but I think the track calls for a bit darker melody, perhaps something in the Phrygian mode.
