I like the airy synths at the beginning and the catchy chordal riff. The vocal samples and ominous bass at :15 are a little cheesy, but the minimal drop at :32 was pretty cool. The mix is loud and clear, though, and you’ve used mixing effects like reverb well. The bit at 1:18 (which, I think was trying to imitate an ECG?) was pretty creative, but the synths involved sounded pretty square and generic. I like the melodies during the bridge at 2:05, which in turn lead nicely into the build-up and second drop. The second drop itself could’ve used a little more variety and flavor, especially in the absence of a proper outro here. Overall, my main concern here is the incredibly generic arrangement, instruments, and harmonic content, and the sound design could’ve been more interesting and varied as well. Still, I think you have a good sense of rhythm and some solid production skills. The composition is a bit bland, but the catchiness and quirky transitions help keep things engaging. Keep at it, Dim-J! :)

i like the idea of the drops
not liking this 01:16 part, but at least it's a transition from this part to another, but why the bass in 01:27 crashes so much lol?

Dim-J responds:

the crunchy bass is an intensional mistake, and that transition is the name of the song, it starts normally, crashes and restores to its original state :)
