Interesting SFX. Reminds me of the church by my grandparent's house.

Sounds like this is D&B at first, then, I'm not sure. However, I do know I like the directions you're going. At 1:27, we're back solidly in the realm of D&B. I think the scratching/glitch FX may be a bit too loud for the mix to sustain.

Structurally, I'm not entirely sure what's going on, what awaits beyond each corner. Generally, I'm pleasantly surprised by each new development, but I do wish your drops lasted longer. I'm not sure if you have chorus/reverb on your bass, but if you do, I would reduce the wet signal.

I'd also increase the volume/compression on your percussion. It's hiding in your mix.

Overall, enjoyed the piece. Could probably do with a good master. At its loudest, it isn't quite making full use of the soundspace. Try it on one of those generic internet mastering sites and hear the difference, or maybe take a peek at some mastering tutorials for your DAW. It'll take you to the next level.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!
