Simple at first - but it gets there.
Alright, very simple kick and hat at the start.
The melody at 00:30 seems to start rather randomly, the only indication is a double kick. And during the melody, the kick drops out. I think you need a build for this melody.
Alright, around the 1:00, the bass comes, and the melody seems to compliment it nicely. I just didn't like the high-end noises, that snare, or hat, or whatever, I'm very bad at picking them apart.
The ending is the melody on a different synth and then the repeating drumbeat again. Very simple ending, maybe you need just a little more before it ends.
Still, it's good, would like to see you work on it some more.
Thanks for the review, I agree with most of what you say. It's a snare at 1:00
