I like the intro! It's got a good drive to it already, and it develops well. I like the bass arp!
Smooth intro to the new synth! Blended very well!
The intro maybe gets a little boring after some time...try switching up the percs, or putting in some breaks in there to keep it interesting!
Transition to pads could have been smoother, but it's hardly noticeable after the glory of the pads comes in! Really loving this part! Build up is good, except I don't like the way you sequenced the kick, just keep it beating steady. Instead of dropping the whole thing for that bar, stick in some crazy nuts FX to bring the track into the breakdown.
Personally, the breakdown could sound bit fuller? Keep the pads going into the breakdown, and maybe sidechain the pads to the kick.
When you bring in the other melody it starts sounding fuller.
After that it's all good.
In technical terms, I think it's a bit loud, especially the kick. Could use some toning down of several layers, since it gets a bit fuzzy in the breakdown.
All in all, nice track.
