Interesting vocal intro, like the dub influence with the delays. Main drumbeat made up of FX works really well, gives it a nice bit of funk and the kick is a good solid anchor and harsh enough for this type of music.
The more I listen through this, the more dub influences I can hear especially regarding the bassline, the perc type noise that comes in after the break at 2.46 and the vocal snippets throughout.
Like the moody pads/bed. It would have been nice to hear a bit of variation in the sound design here, playing with filters or reverb and automation but a minor criticism.
I’m less keen on the new element that comes in at 5:46, it possibly sits too high in the mix but I’m not sure a brand new lead at this stage works. I found it jarring which is at odds with the vibe of the rest of the track. Maybe bring in the odd stab and teaser in now and then earlier on. Even if it’s just one note, low in the mix so it’s less of a surprise when it comes in.
Overall, I really liked it though. Well done, you should be proud.
