I like the ominous pulsing sounds at the beginning and the gradual fade-in of the drums. The percussion and bass riffs at :30 are cool, but the texture is a bit minimal. I really would’ve liked to see some more harmonic depth here at some point. The sound design isn’t bad, and you clearly have a good sense of rhythm and progression, but some of the compositional skills I usually look for in scoring tracks - melodic development, structural variety, ebb-and-flow, dynamic contrast - are a bit lacking here. The production quality is strong, but the composition is pretty bland at the end of the day. I’d encourage you to keep working on this, though, because the rhythmic content is really compelling and the creepy atmosphere at the beginning sets the stage really well. Keep at it, Michamadman! :)

I admit that its not so good because of repetitiveness but I tried to make some different dnb however this isnt turned so good but also not so bad. I like your honesty and thanks for this constructive review!

i like it feels really empty though couldve used some bass and more melodys overall but still decent
