A slow dub electro number, I guess?

i have to be honest, the track feels like a 5 minute buildup to nothing. theres no real melodies or sounds that kick in to act as punctuation or anything, it just sounds like a very long track of skittering hats and dropping marbles with super quiet ambient noise. i feel like you could still make a slower electronic track that has interesting and energetic melodies - this just sounds like nothing happens. keep it up though, im sure you'll find something that works!

id appreciate it if you could return some honest feedback here

I am sure you mean well to help, but not all styles of music - especially deeper shades of electronic music - are just based around simple melodies like pop or rock are. Nothing wrong with melodies. However, you can have brilliant tracks with no melodies at all. Of course something has to sustain the interest - then it is down to the sound design, groove, atmosphere, etc to keep the interest. But if you look only for melodies in electronic music, you will be missing quite a lot ;)

I like the overall atmosphere! I think your drums and drum hits (all drums) are too loud compared to the rest of the layers - everything sounds pushed to the back - bring all those great sounds up! :)
