    vibes man! nice work! was really hoping that the energy level would pick up @ the drop 1:53, with some faster drum patterns, think the drop after the breakdown could do with a little more erngy to, melodies/chords n vocals are sweet

    i've had flu for 2 weeks, n my ears are still a bit blocked, so i avoided talkin abou the mixdown....hopefully someone else can comment on the mixdown sum more...


    from what i can tell, yeah mixdown aint bad, although i'd probly turn the percussion down a bit, snare feels a bit to big in the mix, the overall sound feels a bit empty, lacking midrange, once the percussion is more balanced u might b able to get some more out of the other sounds

    Still an awesome intro. Perfect combination with the pad and the piano!!

    Very nice vibes, respect for that.

    I would keep working on the mixdown though. Drums sound good but are too loud in the mix. Give the pads and midrange more width. Also I noticed the backround noise, it's a bit too loud imo. hope this gets you some ideas :)

    Agree the snare sounds a bit too sharp on my headphones.
    There's producers and there's artists, and there's win the whole lot people who can do both at the same time.
    You've got the artist side pretty good.

    I can really feel this. Fresh tune, great vocal work, nice vibes. Im now on my work station's laptop, terrible speakers etc. I will check this out later for sure.

    e. Yes, I like it a lot! Great production Marlok, as always! ;)

    yeah man wicked. great vibes.

    for me i don't really think it needs all those hi hats going on at once, it makes me loose focus on the melodys. a nice simple, stripped back rhythm would go down a storm on this id say.

    your tune tho
