I like the atmosphere at the beginning and the eerie mood. The transition at :24 was a little sudden, and there’s a tad too much reverb in the texture for my tastes. Some of the percussion samples sound a tad harsh, and sometimes the texture is lacking in treble-range frequencies. The rhythmic content is catchy, but I wish there were a few more moving notes to offer some harmonic depth. I thought the sudden relaxed mood at 2:01 was a little jarring, especially since there’s simultaneously a shift in the harmonic content there as well. The gritty synths at 2:23 fit the character of the piece well, and the mixing effects at 2:48 help make the texture sound nice and rich before the final angry refrain. The mix sounds a bit strained at times during the busier sections, but overall I think the production quality of this piece is rather good, and I also applaud your use of atmosphere and sound design. My main complaints are probably the sudden transitions and the lack of harmonic depth. Keep at it, Spoonukem! ^_^

Really enjoy the rhythmic dissonance in this. Pretty iconic.

Good luck in the contest!
