Made this one entirely in Ableton. Didn't really have an idea of what I wanted to make, so one thing kinda organically lead to another. Listened to it a couple of times and sometimes I think it sounds really cool and other times I wonder if it is just all too ... busy or something ... As if there is too much going on, as if it is all a bit exhausting to listen to ...

Hope you're all still safe and all that!
Have a great week

not too busy for me, in fact I wanted more.  I think the "vocal-y" sounding sample could have been louder, and then I kinda wanted some big classic DJ SOMEGUY CLUB BEAT to drop after the half.

I totally loved the "harpsichordy" thing, added some cool (for lack of a better term) Eastern flavor, with the type of scale the harpsichord was playing.

I didn't think it was exhausting; you had some breaks at 1/2 and at 3/4 which kept me going throughout.

i like it, no not too busy, - i love the sounds, and the slow developpment of dramaturgy.

Thanks man!
For next week I am planning to cook up a more typical house track. Possibly with some disco influences and/or me singing. Though I mean, I'll give it a go - might be a bad idea, but let's see ...

Wouldn’t call this too busy, still lots of space for everything to breathe, like that vocal manipulation sound and the distorted sounds, vocal sound reminds me of Shabazz Palaces “an echo from the hosts that profess infinitum”, I’ve always loved the start to that track
