I Like It...

Personally I would classify this as hip hop, because the rhythms are definitely hip hop based. And hip hop often incorporates synths to help push along a sort of background melody, which is what you are doing here.

This has a really nice tone to it. I would say at 0:41 where the break is you should drop out the gritty synth to allow for the vocalist to really shine right there. I know there is no vocalist at the moment, but you should find one. Because this should have vocals in it. So yea, if you find a vocalist drop the gritty synth at the 0:41 mark.

After that I would recommend bringing it back in as well as the other synth you already are dropping in said section. That would allow the vocalist to establish his/herself and then have the full ensemble come in to back them up afterward. This is very typical in hip hop and it works really well.

Do not be afraid to add in a flowing piano line and/or acoustic guitar part somewhere along the line. Both instruments could give this a new dimension that could let it shine.

But all that being said, it's still a WIP. Thus I shall wait until it is finished to pass my official judgment.

3/5 and 5/10 overall. I'll give a real rating once it's finished. And I look forward to hearing the final product. This is definitely the best thing I've heard from you to date my friend. Keep up the good work.
