My Feedback

Music - 9
Instruments - 9
Performance - 9.5
Mix - 8.5

Overall - 9

Comments: Love the bass line on this one. What did you use for drums? I don't know, maybe my ears are going but it seems like there's not a lot of high end on this one. Maybe Layzer can confirm but it seems mostly in the low to mid range. Bass seems to dominate slightly. It's not off by a lot but to my ears I'd like more air at the top. Interesting piece. While melodically minimalist, the variations keep it interesting.

Love the sounds used and the energy the track gives throughout. Not a huge fan of the ending, but that is subjective at best. The noodling at the end actually builds great anticipation which is why I think the end suffers a bit.

Still it a good listen all the way around.

Thank you. Yep, the end was maybe a bit weird and like you hear a very improved random play (on a computer keyboard as midi input with some randomized values) :) .

@2:04 love the drop elements there.
Only comment would be on mixing - certain points where clarity is needed.
Not many songs can keep me listening from start to finish, but your's had enough excitement and variation to keep me wondering "whats going to happen next?" 80% of songs on here I am skipping through, but this was different.
Good one :tu:

Nice EDM/IDM or possibably even soundtrack.

The ending kind of catches you off guard but on a repeat listen the musical hijinks work for me.
