I've finally made something not so bass-centered as my other tracks. It's definitely a little boring, a little repetitive, but I'm still proud of my results, considering that it's been less than a week since the round started.

I like the distorted synths at the beginning and the rhythmic content. The compression at :24 is really heavy, though - it detracts from the smooth atmosphere a bit imo. That said, I like the quirky synth riffs at :48 and the cute melodic riff that comes at around 1:10. The transition at 1:31 was a bit sudden, but by 1:42 I’m really enjoying the syncopations. The riff at 2:16 takes up a bit too much space in the mix imo, but it leads well into the second drop at 3:00. I would’ve liked to see you do more with the final drop, as there wasn’t much in the way of novel harmonic content later on in this piece, and the intensity of the build-up didn’t seem mirrored in the last drop. I also think the ending is a bit sudden here, lacking a proper outro. Overall, the arrangement is a little choppy and there are a couple other compositional details that are rough around the edges, but I really like the sound design, atmosphere, and mixing of this one. Keep at it, IAmDeadOnTheInside! :)
