Nice atmo and autechre style disjuncted beat,nice glitches but it feels to me there is too much reverb and not enough compression.The track is a bit drowned in reverb.I would put less reverb and more compression on the drums.The beat at 1:13 i think should be louder too.
 
For weird autechre experimental beats i fund out writing the loops in triplets make really great results.Keep it up!!!

So I left some comments on the soundcloud link.  But holy cow, dude.  It was affecting me physically.  I really liked your work on the sounds, dude.  Really crisp on the percussion.  I personally like the overdone (relatively speaking) reverb.  It makes the entire thing really atmospheric.  But that's just me.

Overall, really different.  But really good.
I produce for Him.  Not me.

Hey guys, thank you for all the comments.

As for the reverb, I wanted something absolutely massive, with the feeling that it is almost physically sticking to the track. This was to contrast some of the incredibly dry percussion sounds.

Glad you felt it physically Prodigal, I was aiming for sounds as almost tangible substances in this work.
Thanks for the experimental beats advice fxbip. For these beats I was creating tiny expanding patterns. And then when I put them together I was doing strange and cuts. One tip I have for experimental cross rhythm and poly rhythm stuff is to set scenes in ableton with different time sigs and bpms. Arm them for recording and you can edit on the fly and they will all record in the sequencer with some weird shit.

Soundness I will send you an email. Some of your stuff is nice, just wondering which way a collab would work and what you had in mind.

Thank you all
