My third song. This one was mainly inspired by Muzzy and Droptek, two of my favorite DnBers. There's definitely certain resemblances to 'Calling Out' and 'Rupture', hopefully not too strong. As usual, any feedback is welcome.

intro is great man. drums at the start could be more balanced (EQ or sample-wise. theyre too top heavy imo. the kick needs more bass and the snare needs more mid).

1:04. too much reverb/release. try making these sections super dry to contrast and make it stand out.

1:37. the repetition is kinda annoying tbh. try making it variated in either melody or percussion, or just add another layer.

section around 2:24 is great. the part after tho is just a repeat of earlier, you shouldve added more layers (or taken some away) or made it somehow more interesting.

i think 3:45 shouldve faded into the ending, honestly. and the part after, again, is a repeat.

overall, you tried really hard to make this super long, which made it less interesting. also in some parts mixing was a bit off. sorry if this doesnt make much sense or if it doesnt help very much

Thanks for the review. I don't know how apparent it is, but at 1:37 and in the third drop the percussion actually does change into a more hardcore style briefly. Honestly it doesn't really feel that repetitive to me, maybe it's just all those other random melody songs around that make it feel that way. I just kind of try to do it in a more traditional way, personally. I can't really pull off that random element the way other people can.
