I like the vehicle revving sound effects at the beginning and the airy pads. The sample of someone opening a soda can was a bit too loud, but the rest of the sound design is pretty fun and groovy. That said, the synth bass is a tad cheesy, and the drums could use some more reverb or other mixing effects. The more melodic content at 1:13 was a nice touch, although I think the synth bass/harmonies were a bit too loud by comparison. The texture really starts coming together at 1:54, although by that point it also feels a tad repetitive. An atmospheric bridge or melodic solo somewhere in here would’ve been a welcome change to the texture. That said, the production is pretty strong, and the sound design grows on me the more I listen. The composition might need a tad more attention to detail in the future, but I’m definitely scouting you. Keep at it, Zzox! ^^

really dig the retro microhouse/chillwave feel! the pitched-down snare is a bop, the swirly pad is beautiful and lush. love the movement in the cute little synth bass too. the way this comes together is so sweet and charming imo. i think the kick could push through a little harder and the second half of the track could use some variation or fills or something because it does get very samey by the end. think the overall stereo image leans a little too far to the right, might be good to pan the fast hats left a bit to offset the snare hits and offbeat hat. cute little track overall. make more!
