Piece has a nice mix between synthwave feel and oldschool electronica for me. My only real complaints are mix related, as phrasing is good, builds are nicely placed, samples aren't crap. There's just the issue of lots of distortion in the mix at various points and clipping.

At 0:08 particularly noticeable but also through 0:28. I could probably name more points of reference but it just sounds like your track was mixed at a volume that was already quite loud before mastering FX, if any, were applied. The rest of the track suffers from similar issues of loudness and mix clutter. I would additionally recommend cleaning up your reverbs with low cut to 250 hz, as well as any synths that are not your bass. These frequencies make up a ton of extra loudness without adding anything to the actual music itself.

Other than that, great piece. Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

DawMii responds:

Thanks for pointing those out. I couldn't figure out how I will fix the distortions. I really need to work out my mixing

you know what's better? Layering!

DawMii responds:

Thanks. I will do better next time
