    Yeah man,
    Stick a reverb on that vocal sample

    Clone the synth and play it an octave lower to give it some body, make it a lil stereo to give it space in the mix

    Change the melodies and stuff 32 bars past the drop

    Was there a bassline? lol

    thanks for the tips, here's my updated version. hopefully the bassline fits, spent a while going through different ones.

    Cool, its sounding better

    couple things though,
    that vox sample is way too far forward in the mix, make the reverb wetter and bigger (bring the dryness way down). IMO it should sound like she's singing from the other side of a very large room, whereas right now she sounds like she's in your ear

    the twinkly stuff sounds good but should be quieter imo

    id keep the reece in for the section starting at 0.54, maybe modulate a couple parameters so its got some life in it. check you dont have freq clashes near the top end of the reece (i mean the harmonic buzzy sounding freq range) and then maybe give that freq range a little wide boost

    personally id shorten the release on those synth stabs, but they do sound good

    and then put some stereo imaging on the synth stabs, vox and twinkly stuff
