Hey guys. It's me again. I have been busy again with another Synthwave track. Please let me know your thoughts. I hope this mix isn't too loud this time unlike Complications. The vocal samples are also from Night of The Living Dead.

The mid-high frequency range is cluttered with leads that are sustained for bars. You would be better off replacing these slow moving leads with a softer pad that sits in the background. This would make space for the melody which has to fight for space in the mix when it arrives.

I think it develops too slowly and the movie samples are too loud.

Lots of potential but there is also room for improvement I think. Keep plugging away. :tu:

Sounds good to me. I would have cut it off around the 3.30 mark, but that's just nit picking.

Thanks Fature for the feedback! It has been a while. I have been thinking about reducing it's length and bringing the bridge in earlier. I'm currently been removing/changing some elements that make the mix muddy due to Frantz feedback.

EDIT: Made some slight changes to the drums to hear the Kick Drum better, tried to clear up the mid range a little,and slightly shortened the length.
