This is amazing but the main parts are so loud its clipping. Like the intro and the 2nd break is good but both drops are WAYYY to loud. If you can fix those tho you have an amazing song.

omg thancc

Nice textures to the pads here, *especially* the one in the beginning. Blending with the high-end reverb shine (and some bit reduction?) gives it a quality that reminds me of Oneohtrix Point Never's "Love in the Time of Lexapro" - go preview the beginning of that on Bleep, it's the title track of its release. The one for the loud parts is satisfyingly crisp, and sits well with that sharp, wibbly bass. Interesting choice of sample, proper utilization of "now it's time to get serious".

*Personally* wasn't really into the tone of the distorted lead here to begin with, or the strength of its sidechain response. Starting to feel like it fits into the arrangement now, but could still stand to be a bit richer.

Also think this could afford to be extended. The 1-2-1-2 structure leaves me wanting a more definite climax… something like 1-3-2-1-3-4 in terms of relative energy, with the current 2s as 3s, the new 2 being a transition section to ease back to 1, and the 4 building on its 3. I guess the distorted lead adds a small step up in energy, but the periods of its inclusion don't really constitute distinct new sections. Maybe the 4 would have flashes of some soft, wide pad on the 16ths, to fill out whatever space is available. Maybe some prominent high-end percussion.

One last suggestion: to give the final mix some really quick, easy polish at a low cost, just rub a banana peel on it.
