    No I would not buy it. It is not because the track is horrible, but because the mix does not sound pro. The drums are cool and so is the sound. The track is in fact lovely but it is not up to standard. Please, believe me I am not trying to be a dick. I just think you need more time to develop the finer parts of your craft. It's in the details that separate us amateurs from the professionals.
    Keep at it though.

    IV4 - Hey man, thats good feedback.. I'm currently producing on a £30 hi-fi system from curry's, which is annoying because i feel that monitors and a good listening environment would enable that proffessionalism, would you agree? or is there anything in particular you think i should work at?..

    Again many thanks :)

    Nuff Love

    Also, if i may give you some feedback on your track soul2soul.. The drop sounds like it's lacking alot of high end sparkle.. The snare could come up a bit and be a bit brighter, some space around your kick drums somehow, along with some more body, could emphasize the slammin break you've made.. Just some sparkle and some space in the drums.. However the bass is nice and the scond drop is banging..

    Thanks again for your feedback sir :)

    If you don't have good monitors, what you have to do is find a song that is fairly similar to yours, run it through a spectrum analyzer, and note down the decibal levels for the different elements (kick, snare, bass, cymbals) and match your tracks levels to theirs. However this doesn't automatically give you a good mix down because you're sounds could be much quieter/ less processed than theirs, so play your tune through as many different reference speakers as possible and keep going back to it, this will allow you to pick out elements that are maybe too loud or too quiet. Also learn eq better and sidechain

    nice feels. The profffesional sounds come afterwards......Good to show CREATIVITY in songs not just how much money you got to spend on gear/services

    Keep coming up with good ideas and don't fall into "whats professional" for that comes after popularity ;)
