Sounds good. The mellow pianos and muted drum beat makes a nice sedate backing for the vocal, so that Lisa DB’s voice and words are front and center.

Couldn’t do it right any other way. The vocals were so fragile I felt a bit bad about chopping them to fit my 3/4 version.

Your version was the one I checked if I was doing anything too funny. (I’m always a bit worried when I work with English lyrics; you can do some serious damage to poems when not working in your native tongue.) I was about to add a guitar solo, maybe next time.

Sparse track. Not only piano and muted drums, also a lot of subtle fxs undergoing and keeping interest high until the great ending.

I. Love. This.

I think you made all the right choices here - the vocals being front and centre, light but busy elements in the background.

This is outstanding.

Your backing track creates splendid tension so that my attention is fixed on Lisa’s delicate voice. Excellent work. Bravo!

This is great! The vocals are pretty fragile (almost too fragile) and now that I’ve remixed a few tracks I know it’s difficult to add without being overpowering. Very good choices here and the b/t fits the lyrics.

I agree with the overpowering. Many times I get criticized about letting the vocals drown, so I was extra careful this time.

This really seems to be a good mix, as it already has gained more thumbs up than any other of my mixes here.

I like this very much - the 6/4 overlaid with the 2/2 feel is a great idea!

What’s the opposite of forceful? This light touch, somewhat understated, musical accompaniment gives the singer gravitas by staying out of her way. It’s a brilliant track. Well done.

Effective minimalism, Aamu. Well done.
