Nice!

Midnights-Ocean responds:

Thanks!

Sorry for the late review.

Congratulations on front page.

This is a rather modern, upbeat piece of breaks. The vox is really clean, now it may just be me but it seems to have a left lean, but then there's so much pan and tilt on the backing it's hard to get a fix. It's strong as hell though.

Now the instrumentation...everything is pretty much perfect, my gripes come down to personal taste on balance, that late acid arp at 4:14 is too strong for my taste, your string swells get over powered by it.

It feels a tad compressed, but it aligns with genre. I enjoyed it but couldn't find something that was your tone innit. 10/10 though, vocals are always difficult to work with and you did a great job.

Midnights-Ocean responds:

No worries! Thanks man! Yeah this is actually a much older piece I did years ago, tailored to fit his vocals, which were superb and a joy to work with.

I agree about the strings. I wanted both the arp and the strings to be on equal footing. I'm going to readjust the balance of the arp and strings in the end vamp next mixing pass.

Yeah I hear you about the slightly compressed sound. It's hard to get such thick vocals to sit properly without compression on these types of genre. It's definitely more mainstream than my usual stuff but that was the point. It's supposed to be more pop oriented.

I was very pleased it got front page. I'm glad you liked it and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. : )
