I like the tune, it's quite nice! I do notice those audio mixing things you were talking about! The kick drum seems a bit distorted from :31-50, but your mixing from :50 to the minute mark is really good! Whatever you did there, you should apply to the rest of the piece! I notice at 1:01 to 1:20 there are dips in the audio where the kick may go, I'm not too sure how this is happening but I imagine it has to do with a kick you are using at that point. You'll get better as time passes! I remember my first mix, I can't even go back and listen to it LMAO! Keep at it! This is a great starting point for 2020! Cheers friend!

thanks for your feedback. i don't usually try to do much mixing in my tracks, but i'm glad i got feedback for this attempt.
the distortion problems around 31-50 seconds could probably be fixed by using a different kick drum.
the audio dipping you were mentioning was actually supposed to be part of the mix and has nothing to do with the kick used. a kick isn't supposed to go there. i wasn't sure if that mixing decision would be effective or not, but most of my songs are heavily experimental anyways.
