I like the dark, echo-y synths at the beginning. The reverb is a tad excessive, but the sub-bass and synths mesh really well together. And those dark beats in turn contrast really nicely with the guitar at :37. The drums might be a tad over-compressed, but once the beat gets busier with the bass and brass stabs, they sit in the mix pretty well. Later on, I would’ve liked to hear some more dynamic melodies, and the minimal drop at 2:02 felt a bit anticlimatic. That said, you won me over with the rhythmic content, atmosphere, apprehensive mood, and sound design. Nice work, Embyeee! :)

love this really cinematic and atmospheric approach to hybrid, even got the drill bass going. really great mixing, total control of the low end in heavy sections and lots of detail in the mids and highs. the stereo image on the hats and is a little plain, but i like the spread on the brass and synths. i think the final drop section isn't nearly as compelling as the the middle section, and the structure of the track feels overedited. the 2nd drop is good enough to bring back in again and your breakdowns are good enough to warrant an extra 8 bars of chill before the build at 1:45. really enjoyed this though!
