    Hey. Feels like the beat drags in the drops, maybe the vox are slightly rushed. Dunno feels slow and stumbly to me.

    I think you are right, like the vox sound flat against the track

    I can see how you want this song to be high energy. However jacking up your volumes is not going to help try to balace out everything. A well balance mix will give the song much more energy than really loud parts. Also I believe the notaion that you used was out of tune. Did not quite fit with the track right.

    Hmm, all things considered, I'll go back and work on EQs and the progressions. The song sounds slow because it's at the original track's BPM (150.02) I didn't stretch the vocals, I felt like it was a good tempo to work with, although my personal ideal tempo is 162.

    A track runner that is slightly behind the leader will feel slow even if they are both running at exactly the same tempo.
