I like the bass drone and frantic synth arpeggios at the beginning. The airy beats and grating percussion at :28 work well together, and the rhythmic content is certainly a highlight. The distorted piano melodies at 1:02 or so help provide some contrast to the gritty rhythmic elements from earlier, but I would’ve liked them to be a little more up-front in the mix. The string arpeggios at 1:40 were pretty unexpected, as was the drop that comes shortly thereafter. The structure of this piece feels a bit disjointed, and I’m further confused by the mood change conveyed in the blissful piano line at the very end. Overall, you’re clearly a talented producer with a strong sense of progression, harmony, and mixing, but the composition didn’t quite come together for me here. You’ve certainly done enough to earn a scout in my book, though. Keep at it, Paper-Money! :)

sorry for the late reply but thanks:>

really enjoying this aggressive hybrid trap sound. lots of creative sound design and sweet thoughtful melodic work. i don't think it comes together in a cohesive way, but the separate parts are mostly good in a vacuum. the melodic section at 1:01 is my favourite, although i would use a softer, more airy cymbal sound on the downbeat - right now that strong hihat is cutting the piano out of some of it's space and sitting on the kick and snare transients awkwardly. love the ending too, such great atmosphere - didn't like it resolving to the Bb at the end on the piano though, wanted it to just hold on that unresolved F6 chord. some of the glitchy freakouts are too loud, mainly in the riddim section, but otherwise the mixing is fine. good work overall!
