    The mixdown is usually the first thing my ears start to process, never used to be like that but it is now... Not sure why... But yea, sounds clean and crispy so far :)

    Is this a work in progress?? I'm assuming "lots to do" means this is the main body of the tune and that your going to add more?

    You know I dig all this style stuff you are doing right now man, all the vox you are using sound spot on too, you just sampling them from different acapellas and tunes?

    thanks bud

    for vocals i buy lounge/souls packs from producer loops, high quality & lots of it. they have good deals sometimes too.

    for this tune though i sample Diana Ross & did some pitch work.

    kick could use more body and sub imo, and that synth some processing.

    its a bit too 90's for me somehow, mixdown is good tho.

    I'm loving all the side chain dynamics. Nice and relaxed song. Well mixed. Wish the tention broke out into something bigger at points. All in all a great song.

    Quite nice, but Im agreeing with groelle. Im not very fond of that kick. It sounds a bit too flat for my taste. Funky tune tho! ^^

    Sadly, some peeps completely shit on the mixdown and try and come back later to fix it. They say mixing down as they go, kills the creative process. But yea, ive always been the same way to. The people who work like that, their tracks always stand out..
