After recieving some tips here on kvr on how i could improve my workflow. I decided to try and make a track as fast as possible (took me about a day) . And ended up with this :P

It's a kind of a chillout track. Hope you enjoy !

It is amazing what can be achieved when setting deadlines, helps to focus the mind. Nothing really to critique about the mix although the double kick on the kick drum does wear a bit thin after hearing for that length of time, but that's my own personal taste.

Such an enjoyable piece, works lovely. :phones:
This entire forum is wading through predictions, opinions, barely formed thoughts, drama, and whining. If you don't enjoy that, why are you here? :D ShawnG

Thanks ^^ Yeah setting a deadline really made me focus more on finishing the structure quickly. And after that i added some extra effects, piano. Really enjoyed working in a fast pace. :)

Thanks for listening crow :) Do you mean it could use some more work ? There's definitely some space for extra layers. I might rework it in the future.

This classic sample sounds very clean and polished here. What is the original song again? I remember it being used in Paid in Full by Eric B & Rakim.

The sample originally comes from : The Soul Searchers - Ashley's Roachclip

I didn't really do much to it except for adding psp vintage warmer.
