I like the catchy beats at the beginning. The sweep sounded a bit harsh in my headphones, but does an effective job of transitioning into the vocal part. The vocals themselves sound really cool, but are a bit quiet in the mix sometimes. You might try compressing them a little more aggressively, and maybe using some more reverb too. By contrast, the reverb at 1:03 was a little overwhelming, but the chopped vocals at 1:18 and the groovy bass riff are both really cool. The second verse is nice, and I especially like the quirky wavering effect on the vocals (at 2:29 and other places). I wish the second drop had as much variety as the first, and also that there was more of a proper outro to the piece. That said, you’ve done a lot of cool work with the mixing effects and rhythmic aspects of the piece, and the sound design in particular won me over here. Keep it up, ALGOfficial! :)

My only complaint with this mix is it sounds like I have earplugs in and am listening in my car, and the sidechain is SO hard. Enough it distracts me from the melody. Maybe pull it off of the melody by just a little.

The earplug feeling keeps up until we get our hats at 2:02. Those feel pretty loud in comparison to lead.

Put a little more sibilance back in the mix, 8k to 16k feels almost nonexistent to me until we get the hats back in, which is really noticeable and makes it hard to enjoy the fullness of those gorgeous vocal chops. And also makes transitions sound harsh.

You've done a great job structurally in keeping the piece varied yet centered in the groove. Great work with that. And gorgeous bass. Issa head bobber :)

Beyond that I would just bring the vocals up in general about a dB or 1.5

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!
