I like the mix of electronic drums, acoustic & electric guitars. You've got some nice funk guitar licks in there too.

Wow those drums certainly pack a punch !
I'm curious to know if you have tried running a side chain compressor on the bass triggered from the kick. It's a trick I learnt in this forum and seems (to my ears) to help reduce some of the excessive thump that can sometimes occur when the kick and bass coincide.
Nice piece though .. thanks for sharing!

I liked it, just needs a melody to drive it home. I found myself humming one out while listening 😀
Off the cuff, the mix sounded low-end muddy to me. I <think> that might be the kick/tams/bass/keys all having different very long reverb trails that overlap with each other in the same dynamic range. I am just getting back to recording and mixing after a few years off, so take that with a grain of salt. But for me the verb trails on the low end parts all wash together and drown out the mids and highs.
