I like the gritty texture at the beginning, although the attack on every beat seemed like a little much for that initial synth. The texture is a bit bottom-heavy, but the production holds up pretty well. My main complaint is the lack of strong harmonic content here, in addition to the slow pace of progression. The breakdown at 1:17 was refreshing for a bit of harmonic variety, but otherwise the piece doesn’t have a lot of moving notes until the singular riff at 1:36. You have the rhythmic content, mixing, and mood down. Otherwise, I think the composition here is pretty underwhelming, and the piece needed more structuring and variety. It’s a good start here, though. I’d encourage you to keep working on this piece. Keep at it, Nextdux! :)
