Darek as you know I have really admired some of your works lately but sorry man this does not a lot for me all round. It's just ok melodically.
This mix is not to your usual standard, the vocals are hard to decipher, way too much bid / bass in them and they clash with the synths even though the vocals are very loud. The kick is old fashioned and wooly, the early intro synth part is clumsy, damn this is nasty feeback, sorry Darek.
Sorry Man, I cant love them all, and I know this can make one feel a bit down but I wont compromise on honest feedback.
Sounds good Richard - this is not the latest one version and most of the vocal stuff is already cleanup - as far as this pluck in the beginning (a think this is the one you are referring to as clumsy) the feedback is also already properly adjusted -> and yes agree with you on the fact that is it hard to make everybody happy a specially in the style that most people over here (on Tranceaddict) doesn't admire anyway lol.
Cheers brother for your honest opinion

I'm going to have to agree - the mixdown is just completely off. The beat is almost inaudible and mushy, while the vocals are so loud they drown everything else out.
It is not easy to get you comment on any work/production and usually when you do then you deliver the "BOMB" -> you mention that this is almost inaudible and mushy with additional problems with the vocal? (and yes vocal level and sound eq is already adjusted as I mention in my response to Richard comment), also which reference system did you use to identified this mixing problems as this would help me address some specific issues you heard in the mix.
Cheers and appreciate your time man.
I like that freedom with no boundaries, no restrictions, no rules setup by somebody else – it's only me and my music.
