Just wanted to share my excitement about these forwards. Been really tryin to nail down the genre a bit, and have received lots of help from everyone here. I was able to get two out of the three I submitted forwarded, so I'm feeling pretty good at the moment!
Here are the tracks that were forwarded:

The one that was returned:
The critique mentioned that the stutter effect used in the first lil drop kinda veer away from the references, which I totally get. I'm hoping that I can find another home for it though, since I really like the overall vibe. We'll see what happens!
Thanks for all those that gave input and helped me get on the right track!
CONTEMPORARY FUTURE BASS INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Boutique Music Library with a very solid track record of TV and Film placements.
NOTE: This company pays an Upfront Fee to Composers! Because this company has just started requesting music from TAXI's members, chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet!
They’re looking for a bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:
“Everybody Hates Me” by The Chainsmokers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKPCBAlDw2A
“In The Name Of Love” by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeGfss2vsZg
Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.
Please send them well-composed Future Bass Instrumental Cues with a fresh, modern sound. Your production should have cutting-edge production techniques that create awesome drops and builds. Build your submissions around a catchy central melodic theme, and keep it interesting, dynamic, and forward-moving by layering electronic elements in and out as your Instrumental Cue progresses.
Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long (give or take) with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. Please Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
This Company pays $100 per Cue for an EXCLUSIVE deal in which they get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Wednesday, May 8th, 2019. TAXI #Y190508FB
