Your lost in a dark cave, and your only way out is to venture your way to the exit.

I like you

Aside from the hip-hop beat, this really reminds me of some Super Nintendo rpg x)

I gotta ask, are you producing with laptop speakers or ear buds? I gotta friend who does the same thing, and it causes the same kind of mastering and eq problems that your songs have. If that's the case, and you're serious about your music, I'd highly suggest the Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones. They can be a little pricey, but they're well worth it. Every detail can be clearly heard and they're great for mastering.

If not, just really start listening to the details. Sometimes when bringing down the volume on certain samples and effects, it's a matter of trusting that your audience will be able to hear it. When I was starting out, I had that problem, so maybe you do too. Idk. But like, I would bring down a channel to about 60% and think "well, I don't people to be unable to hear it" so I would wind up having it too loud. But what I eventually learned was: if you can hear it, so can they, and you have to trust that they'll notice the small details in the background.

The rest of this beat is good though, I really enjoyed it. There were some really weird changes in it and it could've flown a little better, but overall it was a good journey :)

thanks dude!

I really appreciate it!
Sometimes its house speakers, so i can listen to the bass, and then noise concealing headphones so i can hear details.

LOL, half way through I couldn't dig up anything to flow with it, so i chopped up some saxophone samples for the hell of it, i might change it now that you mentioned it.

Anywayz, thank you very much for the info bro, very helpful. Also I look forward towards your new tracks too.
