What do you think of this song?

It sounds kind of experimental with the unique instruments in this song. What do you think?
What instruments are making these sounds? Sounds like someone blowing (or smoking) in a microphone @12-13 seconds and again @ 28-32, and 2:37. And something computerized from 12-20 seconds.

I don't know instruments that well. I just know what I like to hear. I believe its the bass that I'm hearing and loving in this song. You skip to @12 seconds in your post, but the song starts off with a nice groove. Is that the bass playing or some other instrument? I think its the bass that starts off and then the lead comes in @16 seconds? There's a nice balance between the bass and lead guitar between @16 and @33 seconds of the song. This balance is throughout the song at different points.

I think it's the bass again @2:00 until around @2:25........sounds really good.

If there are musicians that post here, please correct me.

Whatever the instruments being played, the music sounds really good on this song.

I've heard this song and I love it! :D Sorta reminds me of Level 42.

I love the bassline! Like many JMQ song, I found it simple but attractive. I think the first 15 seconds and 02.00-02.25-ish sounds like slap bass with many effects.

I believe the sound you hear as someone blowing in a microphone is a sound effect .
you can play that stuff on a keyboard. in any pitch you like...the magic of synths and sound effects :D
