The bass comes in right after the kick... that 303 gliding sound. It sounds pretty clear in the mix to me at least on two different pairs of headphones. I don't have a treated room or monitors though.

Thanks for the feedback.

I literally wrote the lyrics in approx 10 seconds and put absolutely zero effort into them. I don't know if I'm even gonna do anything with it tbh


Ah, I can see that for move right through. The second one is still kind of a stretch for me but it doesn't really matter. Overall I think they are good lyrics. I actually was kind of thinking the two main elements bass and vocal clashed some mix wise, but I don't like commenting on that stuff since I am not really qualified to give mix advice.

Fun to hear some original lyrics and vocals. Wish their was more of that on here.

i like this track, i like the kick, it reminds me of late 90s techno stuff
I really love the chords that comes in as i wasnt expecting them and also the little stab chords as well

the arrangement is really good and i love the groove - great job on this one

edit: possibly the kick could be a little too long in the tail, im listening on my headphones in work, will check on my monitors tomorrow

Yeah I like listening to this, I think you could clean the kik / bass a little, but I admire you for calling it a wrap if you so choose.

Like the little smooth pluck synth a lot. This is way louder than my 'Psycho' wip, I need to up my levels some.

I did put it through LANDR after the last version so don't get the wrong impression about the loudness, the mixdown version isn't quite as loud. I have a love hate relationship with LANDR depending on the genre but sometimes it works quite well. I am not at a point where I feel its worth paying a professional to master my tracks. Only been at it a year and not sending anything to labels for the foreseeable future.

I think I am going to see if I can get the kick/bass mix down a little better though as that seems to be the one issue that people have with the track especially on speakers/monitors.

Listening again I'd say when everything is going on the bass n kik seem a bit distorted but this is probably solvable by reducing some volume or low end in the other sounds. I don't know if you've changed the kick but it sounds good today - perhaps it's me, lol!

Agreed, the arrangement doesn't really go anywhere yet, the chords can have a more engaging pattern and the vocals might be turned off a little bit more, all to increase the tension curve. But overall, sounddesign. And mixwise indeed pretty good for after 1 year.

It's so god damn full and warm. The reso sweep (starting at :40) needs to be nurtured and brought to the front since it will lead this track, that is, if you decide this one is worth making a sandwich for.

cool man thanks for the feedback

was wary of pushing the sweep too high since its taking up acres of room, will try bumping it a bit and see
