    not my style, but good nonetheless. if anything I'd say maybe punch the drums through a bit more but idk.

    Yeah its the skrillex style synths that don't appeal to me, it is well produced though. All the best in the competition.

    Haha, Thanks for the honorable mention in the OP! And yeah, not my thang, but I wont go into detail on that part.

    You got some good bitcrushed synth work going on, but at some points they sound a little muffled in the 500-800hz areas, maybe a little too much distortion. I'd work on some surgical EQ on those sounds, cutting out a few unwanted frequencies will really help clean them up as there's a lot going on around that area of the spectrum. You can hear where it is quite clearly as the drums lose their punch in those parts of the track.
