Hello all! I've been in conversation with a few of you on here about my musical journey, which has been nice sharing and hearing back from you all. So I decided to add my new addition to the Music Cafe legacy! My new track is a descriptive song about my spiritual experiences thus far approached in a somewhat alternative approach to typical Gospel. Would love to hear thoughts!

Much love, Val-Verrel

Musically/vibe-wise the chorus is really nice, it's the kind of thing I can imagine hearing from a major artist. The mix/production needs some improvement IMO. The lo-fi grunge/saturation/clipping in some sections affected the vocals as well, and not in a good way. I think there's some seriously low frequency stuff there that needs to be high-passed. Overall I liked it, I just thought the grunge was excessive and maybe some of the vocal reverb could be tamed a bit.

Thanks for that great feedback! Glad you like the chorus I'm very proud of it. I definitely understand what you're saying about the mix. We took a different creative approach. I will definitely experiment with my use of reverb more still find that balance.
Many blessings.

I like that again. I'd agree with what Vortifex said to a large extent. There's not too much bass overall, but some of the low end on the other instruments is interfering a bit, so it doesn't sound as tight as it could.

I liked the use of district reverbs/delays on different vocals - nice 'ear candy' stuff. I think that for the ones with the longer decays you could hi-pass the reverb (or perhaps the entire vocal track?) a bit more to differentiate them from the others. If that makes sense... :hihi:

Ahhh okay! Great that you like the track! I'm excited to continue my experiment and learn more! I'm gonna try the hi-pass technique you've recommended...

Lovin' the "dubby" or "deep-tech" atmosphere on this one, and the vocal arrangement works very well, especially with the different reverbs.

Good work :)
