Have always been really fond of strings mixed in with other unexpected styles / instruments. So wanted to give it a go myself. Using Garageband 11.

If you composed this tune yourself then I think it's a good tune. If it's all loops I understand it's fun to compile the blocks to make a tune but I like to hear a bit of originality..so thumbs up if it's your own composition.
I was thinking maybe you should have put this in the 'classical' category when the hip hop beat came in and I think it worked ok. Part of me wanted a really nice low end bass to come in as well and give it more of that' massive attack' kind of feel.
Some of the higher end strings felt like the notes where cutting off a little too soon before going into the next note and might benefit from lengthening so the blend in bit more smoothly.
Apart from that, good tune and welcome to MJ

Thank you very much for the feedback, really appreciated!
Im very new to making music on screen so to speak so this is mostly loops. But I have altered some to suit the feel. Im slowly learning the stages of composing from scratch and really enjoying listening to how fluid self composition can make a track against straight loops. Am a bass player so am looking into using live bass also. There are some very inspiring artists on MJ so am lucky for this.
I shall get back on it with your comments in mind and keep going :)
Many thanks again man.

Nice arrangement, peaceful and optimistic. Interesting how the different elements from varying genres go together. A good place to start a composition, is to try things out that. Nice job mate.

what to unexpect
starting off in a dream, winding up in a sudden march. has a touch of the timeless pachelbel, but as your own invention... very nice orchestration ideas, well balanced until the drums come in... however, the jarring shock of a ratty drum set is perhaps what you intended. if it were me, I would instead have the drums march slowly in and fade back away. nice work... isn't garageband, and macjams, fun? welcome.
