Huh. This has an interestingly off-beat opening.

-I like the little reversed effects you've used throughout.
-The background pad sounds really nice and deep.
-The synth at 0:42-0:55 onward is also pretty nice. So are the two at 1:08 and 1:13 (I REALLY like the one at 1:13 onward).

-First big thing - the timings are somewhat off, though I do commend you for not having it in the classic 4/4 beat and 4-measure section style.
-Second big thing. The drums are very low quality - there are a number of free sample packs online, you might want to check them out. The drums you have now sound like either default drums or DSK drums.
-Third big thing, the biggest one - mixing. The overall song is far too loud, and there's quite a bit of clipping. There's also a little bit of distortion, mainly from the kick. Try equalizing it a bit more so the frequencies don't interrupt each other, and also try compressing some of the instruments.
-Fourth problem - There's not really a full 'melody', it's mainly arpeggios and the chord sequence. Try adding in some kind of melody that people can hear - it's one of the things that make songs more catchy and helps people to remember them, which is a good thing.

Sounds nice, but there's no melody and the mixing could be improved a lot. Those are the two biggest things, the other two are lower priority. I have to admit, I liked this, but for the reasons I had said above, it's not something I'd listen to over and over again by choice.

Hope this was helpful!

Thanks! My drums Ive worked a lot with but canâEUTMt seem to be getting the sounds I want, I just make them in FL and bring them over to Ableton, I honestly didnâEUTMt see this track as being the best cause I made it whilst working on another project I just felt like I needed to put something out there XD but I get what your saying on a lot of it, most of these songs tend to be songs I donâEUTMt mind letting people download, songs on Soundcloud I think have a better overall feel to it, thanks for the review!
