I took three days making this, please let me know (time-stamp-ish) if/where anything sounds off or clunky!

Did my best to make it spiffy, let me know how I can tighten it! (compositonally or producingly)

Thanks y'all.

There seems to be a little bit of Klangfarbenmelodie with your timbres, but not all of them blend super well. The passage at around :28 lacks cohesion because of a lack of octave equivalence.
Mode mixture between major and Mixolydian modes was nice, but underutilized. 
Cymbals can be quieter.
The pseudo modulation to the relative minor was cool in the way it was underplayed/unannounced. I don't think it works super well to not announce the return, however.

It's pretty spiffy! But to make it more spiffy let me address only the production aspects. I would EQ some of that boom out of the bass (mostly in the beginning) and reduce the loud parts that seem jarring.Make the loudness more uniform throughout. Happy whaling!

Thanks you two!!

Also, @Monarcheon props for using such an obscure word, I had to look it up to remind myself what it meant. The last time I heard it (Music History) seems like ages ago......

@Gustav Johnson, haha, EDM composers use the word "hocket" I've noticed nowadays and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Klangfarbenmelodie is much more specific so I opt to use it even if it does sound a bit pretentious.

Maybe it's the language or maybe Germans like to give fanciful names to things. For example, in the early days of electronic music there was a device generally known as a Frequency Shifter. Some called it a Single Sideband Generator instead. Germans (certainly Stockhausen) called it a Klangemwandler. Maybe that's an onomatopoeia word. 🙂
