The intro was very nice and smooth, but the get rekt seems out of place. The song seems to transition into a completely different song at 2:03, which is kind of unusual but still pretty cool.

2:47 was really heavy, but I feel that there should have been a sustained bass in the back, just to give it a bit more umph.

4/5 for sure!

"get rekt" that sample is just so ingenious.
i really like the drums, they keep a nice constant sound and beat.

the synths are very cool too.

i usually follow a rule, that is (soft synths = hard percussion) and (hard synths = soft percussion)

i feel like the track would have more space if the synth wasn't as rough. other then that, i really liked this track.

the speak n spell voice is saying "incorrect" afaik but it's all glitched out. kinda like how people think it says get rekt tho. thanks!

This was a very soothing track with an enjoyable intro and a nice mix overall.

The only complaint I have is regarding the wobble synth, which I honestly think is kind of harsh at some points. Especially during the lower notes. I think the drastic change of pitch kind of kills the character of the synth.

I have to salute you for the slap bass-break. Seems like kind of a rarity, plus it gives the entire song an immensely progressive vibe.

Good work, chap. Keep it up!

Faved and followed!
