not a typical hip-hop track
i can see the hip-hop elements here-the big bass, snappy percussion, the danceable parts.
but this also had that upbeat piano melody and cheery synth sounds that aren't typical of whatever hiphop i've been exposed to (admittedly, not much.)
i do really like this track.
i didn't like one of the transitions though. when the piano goes silent, the snapping continues, and there's that sweeping synth, then a bit of snapping by itself, then the first dance part. it sounded a bit too segmented, and i think it might've sounded cooler if you had put that sweeping sound on top of the piano, then instantly hit with the fast part. all the other transitions were handled really well though, especially ones where you had sounds drop out, leaving (most times) that piano loop going.
a really good effort on this one, and it shows. very original, at times unexpected, and lovely on the whole. so great job.
