Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Going to Build & Buy Mode to hear the music.
What happens when the bug occurs? One of the Eco Life Style music in Build & Buy Mode is playing but after it finishes, there's a long 3-4 minute wait for the next music to play.
What do you expect to see? That the particular Eco Lifestyle music should finished playing the music, and start the next music rather than waiting 3-4 minutes.

Hi, I'm reporting an audio issue in the Eco Lifestyle EP, I was extracting the in-game Eco Lifestyle Build & Buy music soundtrack. I found out that there's an unnecessary 3-4 minute silence of the music. When I'm in-game during Build and Buy Mode that particular music plays, when it finishes the music, there's a long silence after that's over it plays the next music.

 

This is the particular music that I was talking about, I had to cut the unnecessary long silence in the audio file in Audacity.

Here's what I found when the audio file is opened in Audacity, I uploaded the screenshot of the issue. As you can see there's a long silent line in the audio file that's unnecessary and I hope that the developers are able to cut that line out of the audio file in the data. I don't know if this is fixable, but I'm going to report this issue to the developers anyway. I think this audio problem also happens in MacOS and consoles too, correct me if I'm wrong.

@Katrus91 It's a data audio issue, apparently that Eco Lifestyle music has a 3-4 minutes silence in the sequence, I extracted the music file and I saw that the audio developers didn't properly cut the music. I don't really know why the developer didn't saw this oversight, and I don't even know if they can even fix it. I think they have to re-upload the Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack back to fix the issue.
