Hey all,

Continuing on posting mixes from an album I'm working on. Mix feedback welcome. This was written specifically for a vocalist I'm working with, which hasn't been recorded yet. Do trying to leave some room for that.

Unmastered initial mix. I'm hoping to get a bass player to play the bass part too. Sort of funky, sort of downtempo.

I can hear a Gotye influence in there.

Nice work. Enjoying your use of echoes. That break around 1:22 sounds great.

I would maybe bring those snare rolls around 3:27 and onwards a little further forwards in the mix but it sounds like you know what you're doing.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah might changeup the beats a little earlier on I think.

Great vibe and groove - works well.

Production is definitely getting there - warm and smooth, but for me at the moment it's all a little bit 'crowded' at times...maybe needs just a little tiny bit more separation between parts... via placement in the 3D mix and a little bit of EQ tweaking...possibly just a little pull back on some of the effects as well?
