I like the ominous mood at the beginning and the heavy sub-bass. The sound design is really murky and evocative, which fits the mood nicely, although the texture is a bit thin. I’m enjoying the rhythmic content, but the lack of harmonic depth becomes a turnoff after a while. The composition could’ve been a lot more dynamic here, and the main melody later on is really far back in the mix. Some vocals or a saxophone solo or something would really help get this piece to the next level. Until then, you’re clearly a talented producer with a knack for sound design and rhythm. Keep at it, CasperJoaca! :)

You claim it lacks lyrics but I personally enjoy these hiphop style beats without vocals in 'em.
As of this track, I really love it, it's very relaxing yet it has this constant underlying feeling of dread to it, the only thing I'd criticize maybe is that it's a bit repetitive, I get it's a hiphop beat so adding too much variation would be weird, but it couls have used a bit of variation with secondar melodies, since there's only the one added at 0:57 that stays there for the rest of the song.

CasperJoaca responds:

I agree that it lacks variation, it's the main thing i struggle with, i can come up with melodies and an arrangement but i always suck at making variation

add song on this to make this awesome
