I like the cute, plucky synths at the beginning and the sense of climax into :13. The mix sounds a bit over-compressed, with some hard-hitting drums and a lot of reverb. The snare sample also sounds a bit generic, but I enjoyed the quirky lead at :13. I liked the frantic arpeggios at :48 and the riser at 1:12. There are some cool compositional details here, but overall the harmonic content seems a little thin at times. I also think you could’ve done a better job at foreshadowing the minimalistic drop at 1:41 - maybe introducing that mid-range bass instrument earlier, even briefly? The atmospheric re-intro at 2:06 was enjoyable, and the clock-ticking percussive sound adds some flavor to the piece. I also liked your use of tempo automations in this piece. Mixing-wise, things hold up pretty well, although I thought the piece was missing a lot of higher-range frequencies at times. There are also long stretches where the drums could’ve been more creative, and the ending was pretty sudden as well. Still, I like the progression, synths, atmosphere, rhythmic content, and energy here. Overall solid work, Aoraz! :)
