I am glad you did not go with “drilling me softly”.

I felt that this piece would benefit from a straight percussion-based mix, and I believe you’re going to prove my supposition correct on this one.

The panning electronica that comes in on top of the percussion is interesting. It works.

I love those warm synths, and the slightly unorthodox melodic choices work well for me, but might not for everyone.

Calendar Girl sounds at home in this mix. I might have been tempted to put an electronica break in this one, to leaven it up and to give it a break. Your choice to leave room for the voice is a very good one. This ‘pella deserves the space.

My favorite part is the percussion and voice only section. I think this song cries out for a pure=percussion-no=melody approach.

But it’s all a very good listen.
The mix feels right. You’ve got a real appreciation for where this ‘pella can go,and your mix shows it.

The extro fade is abrupt. That may be something that the mp3 compression enhanced, and could be fixed as a very minor nit.

Great mix.

Thanks, Gurdonark! And I’ve taken your hint and fixed the extro fade a bit.
