Really well done! I remember liking your last track. Great sound and structure with the message of course. Another pleasant surprise after a couple of bowls :ud: . Was that all and only you doing vocals? Sounds really nice to me. So thanks again for the change of flavor.

Liked it!
1:20-1:47 that drop was a few bars too long for me.
Good to hear a song in this genre with a good message, instead of drugs and sex centered!

My Feedback

Music - 7
Instruments - 8.5
Performance - 8.5
Mix - 6

Overall - 7.5

Comments: I had my monitors turned down about 20% and it's still too loud. Wow! Other than that, not my thing musically but competently done for what it is. But really, gotta turn that mix down a LOT.

I found your leader misleading as I thought you meant something New Age or Ambient instead of Hip Hop.

Overall the Tone is nice and also I am happy that it isn't all about how you are more dope than every other MF but Wag's right. This comes in at probably 12db above a commercial vinyl record I was listening to. Fix this and you are doing pretty well.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I'm doing all the vocals up until 1:47 thought I'd try something a bit experimental. I'm thankful there are people like you who can appreciate this. Will continue to bring you more flavours for after your bowls! :hihi:

I enjoyed this one. The structure was quite interesting. The section beginning 1:46 (with the guest vox - Cloude Atlas?) works very well and provides a great contrast to your intro/outro. The atmosphere is great - chilled, trippy, and an almost Jazzy vibe in places.

Good work :)

Excellent on the low end its well controlled. Overall it’s radio ready but’s it’s too loud and also the mix feels a bit congested I think for my taste I would Eq the vocal a bit more on the airy side to contrast the low end.
