I've always wanted to make a song in this style. This was inspired by songs like Battle Breaks by DJ Takawo and Macho Gang by Anal Spyder.

Okay, I'll try to review this to the best of my ability.

I like the intro, it's not too short, yet it's not overbearingly long. I also like how you often used different synth sounds with this. I agree with the below review by LexaHergon, either add in more fills to make the song have differentiation or perhaps making some of the drum tracks have a glitchy loop (making it sound more glitchy would be a cool addition in my opinion, but may not be your style), since after a few seconds, the loop began to sound monotonous. It would be perhaps good for a background song (which may be what you're going for, I don't know) but it would be nice to hear variation if this becomes a full song and not a loop.

Another problem I had was with the looping. The looping on this short loop doesn't agree with me. You have the white noise cancel out (from what I can hear), which makes the looping feel clunky to me. I would make a fade for the white noise trail off in the beginning, to make it feel more continuous, if that makes any sense. If you do make it into a song, however, I wouldn't worry about this much.

All in all, you have a decent track here. I like the vibes of it, and I would like to hear perhaps an extended version.

Good electronic percussion loop.
It has a nice overall sound, It just needs some more details such as fills and rolls once in a while, like the ones in the beginning and the end, that kind of details ca make this track to sound less like a base an more like a full piece.

THAT'S more like it!

Sounds like this would be good for a fighting sequence in an RPG. Remember the game Earthbound for SNES? That's what this reminds me of. Cool man.

A cool beat that i could definitely see being in a stealth see/ spy movie.
Its not something i wold listen to for fun but it could definitely be some badass background music.
