A.I.M Judging Review
I usually am no fan of abrupt beginnings like in this one, but in this case I think it was done very well, and it really goes well considering the art.
The sound design in this is on point. Really loved all the synths, and you were able to get a great sound out of all of them. The snare sounds a bit wierd to me. It's kinda clashing with the bass synth a lot making it sound poor.
The melodies in this is great, though I feltl ike it became a bit too repetetive after a while. Think the track would benefit with some more variation. Otherwise the arrangement is quite good.

The mxing is done quite well, though I feel like the song is pushed down at times. I don't know if this is due to some short of sidechained compression or just frequencies clashing with eachother.

This fits the image very well, and you were able to capture both the space and action theme of the art.

Arrangement: 3/5
Mixing: 4/5
Sound Design: 5/5
Art Relevance: 5/5
Overall: 4/5

The beginning of this was powerful and immediately this song caught my interest. This is kinda different for drum 'n' bass, I like it! Good use of synths and percussion. Though it's not heavy on the bass, some good background stuff going on. Definitely fits the image. This makes me think of a racing game. Only thing I feel is the compression is hitting a little too hard, so the song feels pushed down at points, but it's not a lot, so it still sounds pretty good.

I'll say parts get kind of repetitive, could use a little more variation, but overall, this is a pretty solid track. Good job.
