So at first this started off as a minimal synthwave track, but after some experimenting turned into an industrial trip-hopish track.


I like the arpeggios at the beginning. It’s a catchy and refreshing piece, and the drums are nice and crisp. It’s also a little slow to develop, though. I was itching for some more melodic content by around 1:30. The kick also gets a little lost in the dense texture at around 1:10. I think you needed a smoother transition into 1:45, even a crash or sweep or filter automation would suffice. Same thing with 2:50. You vary the riffs a bit, but there really isn’t a lot of work with dynamics, phrasing, or melodic development that would give this piece some much-needed variation. The part at 2:50 offers some structural relief at the very least, but the elements of the piece that do change over time always change sudden, and that’s a risk you took that I don’t think paid off here - a lot of the transitions sounded a bit jarring. You know how to blend instruments and create an atmosphere pretty well, but this piece has some major compositional shortfalls - no memorable melodies, very repetitive within certain sections, etc. I’d suggest focusing on making a more melody-driven piece. After you make a melody, it should become easier to structure your piece. Keep at it, man!

I love this! I can see the synthwave base, but with the addition of industrial instruments, it brings it to a new level. Good Work!
