Like it. Some nice detuning in there. Perhaps a little too much detuning at times though.
Mixing very good.
Nice use of vocoder. Good chilled ending.

Thanks Banshaw,
Out of interest what detuning pushed it for you? I was trying to get a trippy hazy feel, hence the phaser on the sax part, is that what you mean?
cheers

e.g. at 1:23 you have two elements there that are detuned. The regular subtle lead, and the echoed pluck , both are heavily detuned. At the same time there is a vocal going on, and my brain was wondering, is this vocal pitchy, or is the pluck detuned?

Ah, yeah mate, it's a heavilly processed vocal sample, wanted to get a real trippy vibe going. I've only really listened on my monitors and my headphones so no idea how it sounds on other speakers, shall have to investigate!
cheers

Like this track. Has enough variation to keep it interesting and really seems to have a bit of everything in there some where but you manage to keep the mix solid.

Thasnks for the comments guys, yeah finally seem to be getting the hang of this mixing malarky after decades of trying, so it goes!

Sounds good. Plenty of variation and things to keep the interest up. I like the sax. Nice mix.
Well done! :)

I enjoyed it. The vocal production sounds good to me.
