    Wicked stuff man. I'd say get rid of the BOB lyrics and keep the paramore chick's. Good work nonetheless though mate

    as I said, sorry for any confusion, I don't come on here often and have seen others post their stuff in the general section in the past, so I thought it was OK to do so now and again...feel free to move it mods..

    BIG BIG BIG. Drums are great and I like the reverb you added to Hayley's voice.

    had a second listen now, as i didnt found it any good on the first listen tbh.

    drums dont sound too bad, could use some more tweaking tho imo, sounding a bit harsh, especially the kick. didnt like the filtering in aswell, and imho you need more percussive elements to make it roll more, as the hats you got now arent all that imo.

    not a bad remix all in all, liking the halfbeat parts and general structure, hadnt heard the original aswell, so big ups!

    Thanks T:M :)

    groelle:

    I see your point about the drums filtering in, it does seem a bit harsh on proper speakers, but since I'm only mixing on headphones atm I couldn't really tell how harsh they really were. Need to get some monitors! :) Drums are what I'm focusing on improving at the mo, IMO the drums in this tune are of much better standards than previous tracks of mine. Cheers for the feedback!

    think the kick could use a little work, just a couple of tweeks. Also the the bit where the guy is rapping/talking the mix could be a little more defined in places. Somes bits are a bit muddy. I have been producing most of the day so i could be way off because my ears are tired. Also extra hat might sound nice. All in all its pretty bloody good mate. niceone!

    i like this mate, was literally thinkin this would be a good tune to remix the other day.
    kick sounds a bit harsh as others have said, got a bit too much sharpness to it... eq more low end into maybe?
    like it tho!
