i liked this ...

the mix is well balanced , and clear ...
the percussion pattern is interesting , and the pads
loft and support it well ...

just as i felt it was dragging a bit , at the 4.24 mark , you introduced
a new element that dragged my attention back into the track ...
it builds nicely from that point ...

i must say i was hoping for a melodic motif at about the 6.00 mark ...
something simple and repeated sporadically , to take me out ...

quite enjoyable , overall ...

I wasn’t sure I liked this at first but it grew on me. The drum patterns and the dark, spacey pads with other sounds created an alien sound world. Maybe a soundtrack effort.

It worked for me!

I agree with a previous commenter: the track sounds well-produced and has interesting timbres and rhythms, but after a while I lost interest. The track could work well though as background music to some visual element.

Great mix. I loved the sound of the drums and the drum pattern was original and interesting. You had a good combination of sounds on here which produced a memorable atmosphere. I liked e.c's idea of incorporating a melodic motif during the outro/ending.

Good work :)

Well produced - I do like it, but for me, I was looking for more elements to be introduced and build up over time (considering the length of it).

Very clear and powerful! The drums are cool.
All the sounds are awesome.
It's like an ambient radiohead circa naughties mix...
Agree with E Crow about the sound at 4:40. Very nice.
Well done!
