I like the vocal samples at the beginning. Where are they from? The relaxed mood and wonky rhythmic elements and sound design are nice, although the texture stays pretty minimal throughout and could use some harmonic variety and melodic development. The section at 1:38 served as a nice mellow bridge, but I’m not sure I like how the vocals sample and beat overlap at 2:00 - seemed like a missed opportunity to express the re-entrance of the chill pads as the release of the tension from the dialogue. Overall, the mood, sound design, and production quality of this piece are all solid. The composition is a tad underwhelming, though, and the arrangement lacks originality. The lo-fi production and trippy rhythmic elements are highlights for me. Keep at it, LPSounds! :)

The vocal Samples?? Samurai Champloo. thanks for the review

lots of atmosphere underneath the anime sample. would be cool to have something a bit more spacious with less talking. the sample chops would be great if it weren't for all the awful popping and clicking - sounds like your sample cuts aren't zero-crossed. if you can't remove the pops and clicks try to sync them up with the transients of other instruments. the drum sounds are mostly good, i would try a thicker sounding closed hihat though. when you use dialogue samples in a breakdown, don't let them keep talking over the drop - either cut the vocal off or push the drop back until the sample is finished. i really wanted to like this, hopefully you can fix the issue making your sample cuts so noisy.

[laughs] In fact, I left the voices on the beat because it feel more "Original".

Very thanks
