I like the gritty synth at the beginning and the quirky texture at :12. The texture might need a tad more fill in the mid-tones, or maybe just some more legato elements in general. Part of the problem may be that the synths are a bit dry - some more reverb and other mixing effects might be advisable. I also thought the transition at :48 was a tad sudden. The mixing is good, but the harmonic framework could use more variety, and I would’ve liked to hear some more melodic content at some point. You also start to overuse the transition with the descending tomtom drums (like at :46) after a while. The sound design and production quality are probably my favorite elements of the piece, and I like how the texture starts filling out more by around 2:36. The pads at 1:36 offer a much smoother tone, which is good for some variety compared to the sharp, jumpy synths that otherwise dominate the piece. The rhythmic content is strong throughout. Overall, I like the quirky instrumentation and harmonies, but the piece is lacking an overarching sense of direction, and the arrangement is a bit choppy in places. Still, really fun and catchy piece here, MetaHumanBoi. Keep at it, and thanks for coming out to the NGUAC this year! ^_^

niceee!

it reminds me gta4 car radio

The synths are abrasive and I like how speedy and frantic they feel. It does get stall after a while, but overall a high intensity and energetic type of track.
