I agree, I like what you're doing here.

I hope you post more songs. 🎸

Great vibe! You have a ton of creative parts working fantastically together and the chops are there. And the drums fit perfectly and keep it moving right along. But . . . all of it is being obliterated by an overly present kick drum. You might take the compressor on the kick down until it lets everything else breathe. Then you could look around for what ever else might need some eq sweetening / lifting.

 

It's a killer noir jam. Well composed!

cheers,

-Tom

Back in the 60s there was an instrumental band called "The Ventures".  It was mostly guitar & drum oriented and the themes were mostly cars and beach party life (think Beach Boys but without the vocals).  This song kind gives me the feeling on a song they did called "Out Of Limits" in that it has a very interesting riff that goes through most of the song.  Anyway, listening to this was like a trip down memory lane.  Thanks for posting it.

I was going to say the drums kind of sounded like the old MOTOWN style, but you're right it definitely has The Ventures groove.
