Vocals need re-recording and are vanilla - interested to know what people think about the general vibe...whether it works or not. Pretty new territory for me so any thoughts appreciated. Obviously it still needs a lot of work in multiple areas (y)

Trying to navigate the line between rolling, soulful, musical and not too cheese.

Hey,
Percussion and drums are brilliant. Nice vibe with the Rhodes too. Melody is pleasant and mixed well although i feel the guitar needs to be a little more subtle.
Vocal for me at the moment distract me a bit much. Sure i get they are early stages but for me, i would definitely consider putting them back a bit to avoid cheese.
In my opinon Underworld nailed a style just like this, for your reference...
Nice though, experimental and bold, i dig.

Thanks for the replies people... This project has been on ice for a while but the positive feedback is inspiring me to go back and finish it. Might actually have a professional vocalist on board as well (yn)

Really nice track, and it does sound different which is a good thing. I agree with Flux with about increasing the drum volume.
