Vocals could probably come up a db or two. Otherwise, mix sounds fine. Well done, if not a bit long for the genre. Welcome to the forum.

thank you! im glad you like the song.
for db level, i tried to imitate the 80s sound in general. the vocals back then were not sharp as todays songs but again thank you for the advice

Yeah, I get that (into 80s as well) but I think they were a little bit more up front than that.

Nice job! Even got the sax solo in there. I wonder what you are using? Are you using an arranger keyboard for the backing? And do you have any other tracks in another language? I’m always into foreign music.
Synth1, PG8X, Dexed, Sound Canvas VA, FB-3x00 series, blooo, scrooo, qyooo, SQ8L, GTG FM4, DSK Asian and Indian DreamZ, and much more VSTs. Casio, Yamaha, Korg, Alesis HW.

Really like it.
But would agree with the comment re: vocals volume especially in the first half of the song.
Mixing needs to be better, but overall really liked it.
Looking forward to hearing more from you. :tu:
