Here's my latest, and it's an MJ inspired thing. Tracked in Reason and mixed in Logic. Hope you like it and thanks for listening.

Nice vibe, I can here the retro influence.
0:52 those keys are a bit too hot in the mix for me
But overall, really liked it. Would love to hear a vocal on top of this.

MJ's lawyers are thrilled with the track and they will be contacting you soon :party:

You captured the main vibe pretty well,but remember that Quincy always had a lot of cool stuff going on in the background...

You might want to bring that crash cymbal down a few dB and dial off most of the reverb on the bass :wink:
Sorry - I don't use auto-tune....

Lol I did dial the crash down a bit right before I exported. Guess it wasn't enough. The reverb on the bass was a last minute thing. Good ears.

Essentially, it's a backing track. Needs a lot more musical development to make it as a stand alone instrumental. What you have there is basically very good. It's just incomplete.

Yeah, I agree. My other stuff has more substance. This one doesn't quite get there.
