Intro is really interesting. Kinda throws you right into the action of the song, yet the beat is still really minimal until :28. Still, I'd suggest leaving a little more space in the texture at the beginning of the piece, especially since most of the rest of the piece is so minimal. The riser at :34 has a really distinct sound, but I think the way you use it as a moving note at :41 is a bit of an acquired taste. You also come in at 1:16 with another rendition of the drop that sets the pace of the piece to go really fast. I'm also confused by the riff at 1:27, which I don't think was foreshadowed much by the harmonic framework of the piece. I gotta be honest: the structure and progression of this piece is all over the place, and seriously lacks melodic content or textural fill. I'm also really confused by the riff at 3:26 - I just think it's pretty jarring when an instrument is introduced for the first time 3/4 of the way through a piece. That said, the mixing and mastering is still really strong. You're clearly a talented producer, but the composition needed more effort. There's just very little sense of development, phrasing, and resolve here. I know I've been tough on you in this review. I think the main problem is that you tried to take the piece in too many different directions in a relatively short period of time, so it came across as a bit obtrusive. Keep at it, man!

What can I say? I’m a man that likes to experiment lol. Thanks for the feedback though. I learned something new.
