I like the pulsing pads and groovy bass at the beginning. There’s a rich atmosphere, although the reverb and compression may both be a tad excessive at times. I wasn’t a huge fan of your snare sample - it’s a little staticky for my tastes. That said, the cute melodies at 1:02 are keeping me engaged, as well as the rhythmic content and airy sound design. I would’ve liked to see a little more variety later on in this piece. The structure feels pretty cyclical and repetitive after a while, and the melodies in particular could use some variation later on. That said, you still won me over here with the blissful mood, quirky instruments, solid mixing, and fun melodies. Keep at it, OriginalTultraP! :)

very cool hazy tones, the bass guitar sits under the guitar line so nicely. the melodies feel thoughtful and never try too hard, and there's some cool counterpoint going on here and there. mix/master is a little strange - everything feels the same volume constantly and the breakdowns and builds don't transfer much energy into the drops. think it might be good to cut the bass out in some buildup/breakdown sections to help create that space and make it feel a lot more satisfying when they drop in with the kick. the transients in this all feel really weird and washy - nothing really cuts through fully. the reverse sweep has a weird crackle at the end of it, not sure why. cool track overall though, make more!

Smooth sounds all around, the break is awesome! Great punchy mix as well. I think a 16th note shaker or some percussion fluff would take it to the final level.
