Cover version of "Wake Up". Original by MC Karolina and Funset in their album Funky Reggae Party.

WIP I haven't finished yet. Any feedback to let me know how to develop this further would be appreciated! in any area - mix, instruments, feel, etc.

Thanks for listening, and enjoy!

Nice track, well performed and pretty well recorded.
Somehow I have the impression that the voice doesn't stand out enough, is a bit too washed off with reverb while the quite dry guitar stands in front of it.
I would either put some more reverb on guitars, or put just some delays on voice, no reverb. Maybe some lo-fi delays on a send could add some nice texture to the track.

Not bad. The guitar solo was really cool. And I liked that stompy percussion stuff that came in afterwards (sounded like that Radiohead song Giving up the Ghost for a second). And what kind of keyboard was that at the end? A Rhodes? Couldn't really tell, but it sounded great.

Thanks a lot man!

The keys are actually a midi instrument, it's the Scarbee A-200 from Native Instruments' Komplete 7. A pretty awesome instrument, and now that I finally got a great midi keyboard I can start using it properly :)

Thanks for the review! Appreciated!

VERY NICE. I love it, alltho you might want to add some more variant bass, and the voice is a bit off melody. but doesn't really matter.great song.

thecoreman responds:

Thanks a lot man! The bass is definitely going to improve in the next version (If I can find some time). Also some vocals are going to be replaced. Thanks for the review!
