This is a music for the first level of a rhythm game.
The melody bits have to constantly change, because it helps player to remember when particular enemies and obstacles show up, and it also marks progress and motivates to keep going. The game is very difficult and you need to perfectly synchronize your movements with what is happening on the screen (think Super Hexagon or Geometry Dash), so the distinct rhythm of this music helps with it a lot.

It also has some calm parts. Those parts of the game will have fewer enemies so that player can take a few seconds rest before the next wave of enemies show up.


Hmmm DnB? Sweet!! Anyhow, beginning starts strong. Nice how the snare starts to hit at 22 seconds in. Good use of the drums overall, could have used some stronger crash maybe. The melody has the right octave in my opinion. The synth at 0:57 is awesome Not as big of a fan of the part at 1:40-2:05, it kind of slows down the pace I think, having the hi-hat hit at 2 and 4 instead of 3 could have prevented that but that's just a small thing. But I'm excited to check out what the game is like.

Very interesting feedback. I like how you were very precise with the timings - it helps quite a lot to understand comments better. Sometimes people say things like "I don't like that part that starts at around 2 minutes", and it's often hard to tell what part they actually comment on, especially if the music keeps changing often. Your comments were easy to understand, so thanks for spending time writing them.
I'm actually going to try to change that hi-hat timing at 1:40-2:05 to see how it sounds :)
Thanks again!

Beginning is awesome.

At 0:50 that riser effect might be a little to loud.

At 1.50 I would maybe add a pad or smth like that in the background cuz it's a little empty, in my opinion the melody starting at 1.50 sounds a bit unfitting aswell. Maybe change the lead and the melody for that part.

Overall it's a nice track, but I didn't really like the kickdrum and the snaresounds you used, but that's just me :)
