Haha, I was listening to this track on Mr. Molina's Soundcloud a few minutes ago and now I see it posted here. What a wonderful job! So much fun(k) and energy! I just can't stop jammin' to this track.

I agree with the crits, but ultimately I love how this turned out. It's interesting that this is kind of an organic/electronic glitch hop track rather than purely electronic, and I find that it distinguishes it well from other tracks of a similar genre. It's also a bit surprising that the bass in the glitch hop sections was the source sometimes, but it felt natural to me, rather than feeling forced. I thought the most creative part was 2:03 - 2:21, where you had a swung interpretation with some intermediate/neighboring notes.

Love the genre mashup.  I get the critiques regarding the low-end...relentlessness, but otherwise really enjoyed this.  The glitching is really well executed for the frame of mind that this track brings ya to.  Dope one NutS!

So we go from Motown funk, to dubstep funk, to jazz funk (fusion jazz even?). I guess the dubstep parts represent what would happen if you fell into the lava you were sailing on? I do love how the vocal samples represented the beat dropping the second time. Great track all around.

Awesome mix! It goes through a lot of genres but stays super groovy/funky all the time. Instrumentation is excellent. The Sonic FX were on spot lol The production is very good. Nothing more to say -- I'm amazed by how well this concept worked! Super nice job! :)

Cool. I feel like the more aggressive and glitchy this mix got, the more I liked it. Plenty going on to keep things interesting, sometimes a wee bit too much, but when it hit those sweet sections, especially with the SFX and Sonic's voice playing over the dubs, this gelled together rather well. I always enjoy hearing new fusions of musical styles and ideas, so this was a great listen. I could really dig funky dubs. Not bad at all, dude, good take on Marble Zone.
