Sounding really nice m8!
But work on that mixdown!!
Also the horn in the intro is a bit meh. Not sure about it. Sounds to dry and doesnt really fit
Atleast the drums have a good amount of high end. Its like your layered drums sometimes miss the break but that might be me.
Im a fan of this one. Maybe add alot of reverb and delay on vox such as at 3:27 (the aahaah vocal) to create some spacey effect.
Maybe a idea to do this aswell with the doubled vox only a little less then with the aahaah if you know what I mean

Loving the feel of it! The piano and strings in the intro are sounding a little too "MIDI" if you get what I mean. I'd either layer them a bit more or add some effects to fix that otherwise :2thumbs:

hey man, thanks for your detailed feedback. :2thumbs:
mixdown: what do you suggest to do? to me it sounds quite balanced and clear as of now ...
horn: I guess you mean the violin. u're right, sounds too dry, will change that ..
drums: easier break to work with this time :)
drums overlapping: not sure what you mean. you mean the retro-effect hats/beats .. those are overlapping end of bar naturally ...
vox: will look at applying some more FX here and then occasionally.

PS: does it sound too bright (master)?

elo' boys, have been working on this track a bit ... I think I'm getting close to my final.

violin: added various fx.
vox: took out some parts to avoid overload.
basses: reduced a tiny bit for more low end clarity.
drums: slightly different EQing and lowered the drum break a bit.
master: turned everything a bit north to avoid distortion.

any additional input?
track clean & well balanced?

I recommend to put the violin a few db down. Maybe a little delay on the vox on like 50% on the mixer so it delays but not overpowers the original vocal.
Also if this is finished dont mind sending it to dnb forum podcast!
This tune is absolutly awesome man!

/Piano is nice running through track, the hats feel too loud possibly need a gate that is more severe- also are you bitcrushing lots? it sounds perhaps kind of like a very wet bitcrush to me on drums. overall, nice one- but would love to have more soul if possible, almost sounds a bit generic in a sense.

Cheers bro! I defo look into the drums again, planning to bring them further down, squeeze more central. There is no bitcrusher on them though. Thanks for ur feedback!
