I like the percussion at the beginning. The monkey sound effects and claps are a bit loud in the mix, but I like the sound design and catchy synth riffs a lot. The chord progression is a bit cliche, but I’m enjoying the melodies, especially the one at 1:47, and the texture feels very full and well-balanced throughout. The minimal breakdown at 2:43 was also a nice touch - the secondary melodies and bongo rolls there really helped press the reset button on the piece. I would’ve liked to hear some more variation on the main melody the third time around at 3:40 or so, but I think the quirky sound design and rhythmic content help keep me engaged. Overall, solid work, Dimas25! :)

This feels like playing Donkey Kong on the SNES, if it was a mystery detective game.

Not much critique, with the exception I'd like a little less crispy highs on your instruments. Pan play sounds nice. Piece progresses nicely. Sounds quite literally like it could have come off of a videogame chipset with the exception of that lead, so points for artistic vision there.

Appreciated that glitch bongo solo.

I do think the song is pretty long, but that's not really an issue. Great work.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

the panning is really nice, the bongos are also very groovy and fit really well with everything else in the song

kind of cool I do not like the monkiey sownds at the bigining but the rest is cool
