    so burning bridges has turned out to be my best work yet, my brother loved it and decided to lay down a quick vocal, it hasnt been mixed to perfection, been vocal'd in just a day but let me know what you guys think ! reminds me of an 'all i know' style thing. cheers!

    I already commented on the version without the vox on it so I'll only focus on the vocals now then. Could be cool if you just get some mixing on it. Personally I think its too much vocals, perhaps leave some parts without the vocals to make you focus a bit more on the instruments in the tune.

    Are the vocals from your own throat or someone else's? Sounds quite good. Anyways, the main problem is that it isnt mixed yet. Get some eq and fx on it to sit right and I figure that this is going to be quite nice.

    Get pitch adjuster and put your brothers voice in key. It would not hurt to reverb and start splitting freq. on voice after you get it in key either. Also get under layers of his voice for key words and put alot of delay or something on them to give them more life.
    The music is sounding pretty good. I would not mind listening without the vocal.

    Love the music, love the vocal. They just don't gel together. No idea how to fix that, but don't let that stop you. You should definitely fix it. Might be wicked. Little bit of 8 mile vibe in there. dnb style.

    wow much appreciated peeps, yeah i need to get the wav off my other comp and do it all in logic, i left this mixing down to my brother and he mixes over simple grime instrumentals so theres actually never much mixing to do, bit more difficult with the amount of freqs in dnb music so, ill get this sorted!!
