    Been working on this one for a while now, definitely room for improvement though. Where should I go from here?

    Nice tune mate. Really digging the laid back feel of it. But I dunno if it's me or that their is some high freq's pushed a bit hard? Maybe a tiny bit of clash between the arp and the high hats. How hard have you got it limited?

    It's limited quite heavily now that you mention it, my mastering skill is no better than a beginner so I might have to send it away if I can get the mixdown sounding a bit clearer.

    Yeah reduce it a fair bit. Give the track time to breathe. Also just wondering why you are going to send it off to get mastered? Going to be signed is it?

    Cheers for the tip! There's no plan for this tune to get signed, I'm just after a few properly mastered tunes that I can mix into sets and use for promotion etc.

    Ah fair enough. Well keep at your mixdowns. It just needs some tweaking and that would be good enough to chuck into a mix anyways :)

    Wow, love the atmosphere of the track. As said above, only thing i can complain about is the mastering other than that, very well done :cool:
