    Quite a busy bee :)
    Having shot its bolt with the short track length already though. A break introducing a new instrument as a surprise could fix that.

    Hey man! I listened to the track, and I liked the composition you used on this one! congrats on that!

    BUT, to be honest, I think that the sounds are too much on the center, you know? I missed some sounds coming out from the right or the left. Why won't you try panning some of the hats? You could also add some more percussive sounds, those too panned, so it would make the track more "wide".

    Besides that, a good piece of work!

    At 1:36 I was hoping for the dnb beat to kick in, but its a good piece so far. Darkysidro has the right idea with getting the sound wider.

    Panning drums and percussion is generally a bad idea, keep that stuff centered. (with everything under 200hz mono)

    Yeah way too much, some of the higher pitched sounds were really squelchy too and made it painful to listen to. One of them in particular, after hearing it three times my ears started to hurt.
