    I don't think that you need to do much more work on the mixdown, because everything seems to sit where it should be. Just try out adjusting some different frequency sections and you will hear if it sounds good or not. I personally try not to struggle to long on one certain mixdown, because you will come to a point where you think the whole track sounds shit and you just throw it away... But mixdowns improve anyway from track to track, so don't get stuck on it :)
    Anyways, i really like the bass sounds (only the high kind of "reece" sounds a bit cheap to me, but that's a matter of taste) and the drums are really tight. I also enjoy the vocals, maybe they could need a bit more high frequencies (try it out, but if it sounds shit, keep it like it is)

    Cheers

    This is really close imo, that high end reece is a bit loud in places and i think the high end of the breaks might be a little loud but otherwise it's a banger! good facking work!

    HEy,

    the Link doesn´t work because the track is privat I think? I would improve this neuro synths which are coming in at 0:22, i Like the idea but they should sound heavier / louder :)

    Don´t do to much on the mixdown here. I like it how it is ;)
