Listening to them now, theyre pretty good. I can point out a few things you can work on though.

The mixdowns in all the tracks are pretty good. I can hear everything clearly, nothing it too loud or too quiet, so well done here. I think you can change up your drums a bit. The same pattern over and over can make a song quite stale. This is especially true considering you have a minimal vibe going, so drum and percussion work are such a big part of the tune.

I'd also recommend looking at incorporating a melody into the song. Look at some of skreams work. It doesn't need to be too much, just a few key hits into a nice melody. It can be something subtle but it could make all the difference to a track.

Good luck, hope this helps!

Pure opinion, but I reckon your reverb is a bit too on the wet side. I know you're going for that atmospheric feel, but I think drums especially could do with drying up a bit.
Melodic deepness from my mind.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I'll work on my drums and tweak my reverb a bit.

as said above bro pull back the reverb on the drums a bit, in this style I find less is more when it comes to reverb on drums, but on the hole your mix downs are not bad at all for a new producer. keep at it man

Nice bass on Forward Midnight, personally I think the gunshots should go in the beginning with maybe about 50% less reverb, one way you can work on the drums is by reducing the reverb on the snare as well and increasing its sound

Pretty good and and laidback tune either way man, you have your own distinct kind of sound going on in all of them, check out my new tune if you can

Bump, new tunes almost finished. Mixing down the tracks tomorrow, new preview of "banished" is up if anyone wants to give it a listen.

Also re-mastering all of my old tracks to reduce the staleness of overpowering reverb, and my bland single drum patterns.

Thanks for any support!

Banished is pure vibes. :8:
Not feeling the snare, maybe layer it with a clap or some other percuss. Otherwise chill tune.
