this is sweet. IMO the voice sample kinda detracts from it.. like it's a bit waffley? also doesn't quite sit well in the mix somehow..
apart from that, sounds pretty good! understated and quite dry sounding. it's got a great flow to it except the twinkly little musicbox riff throughout could maybe do with more variation - it has a slight awkwardness to its rhythm, which i like, but it'd be cool if it shifted around more..
a lot of the bass has gone away in the second part?
i like how there's a quiet clicky sound that sounds like it's part of the musicbox sample(gives the impression of mechanical noise lile, a glockenspiel bar moving slightly), gives it an almost live recording vibe
this was all really helpful! interesting point about the vocal sample, it found its way in there because it felt like it was missing something and i was struggling to work in another melodic element, but maybe i'll eventually figure something out.
the bass has reverb in the first part, and then no reverb in the second part, maybe that caused a volume drop. didn't notice that at all!
