Wow, nice seamless transition from the lo-fi intro into the piano section. Love the sparse backing track, which is actually quite rich with subtle nuances and textures which don’t escape me. And it’s a great fit for the KCentric track. Very relaxed and chill vibe. Very nice! It got hooks! You’re like the Dutch version of ditto ditto (aka the French Beck).

I settle for a nice Spring. And this is the perfect soundtrack for this season. I really like your attention for detail in this piece. Rich and subtle indeed.

Agree with MCJIB. I can also hear echoes of Beck in this. Very cool and extremely catchy.

Ok i love it cool work as usual. I am going to say two things.
You establish the piano melody and then never come back to it, its worth repeating. Also there is another 8 before the vox hits and i was expecting it to drop as the piano ended.
So to my ears that would be the first change, arrangement wise. Lose that 8 ( keep your glitchy edit ) you have before the vocal and then bring back your piano part at the end of the chorus,so inbetween and before the second verse. That way it stays the same length.
Maybe do some repeats with the chorus going over the piano part towards the end.
Thats all Altham you can go now , and have it on my desk by Tuesday morning :-)
Hey, Thanks for listening. Interestingly enough my second bounce of this track killed the guitar a bit earlier in the mix and faded with the original piano melody. v2 had less low end EQ though so I decided to use the original rendered version (this one).
I really enjoyed the process putting this one together so I’ll likely go back and run these suggestions through in the week (no work travel for the first week in forever this week).
Any cc mixes on the horizon?

I like this a lot, made me wish I had some ankle bells to jingle along with the beat. It’s really nice to hear rap in this environment, because it is poetry after all and sometimes with all the heaviness of the music the nuance of the language can be overlooked, which it should never be.
Nothing beats romance in summer :-).

I’m still trying to catch up after being away for a few days and am so glad I found this track — what a great feel. I love this pell which is full of sweetness, and your alt-hop-electron-downtempo treatment brings out the best in it. Beck-ish, perhaps, but there is still a unique upbeat quality that I always associate with you.

LS is absolutely right. Actually, scratch that - I meant to say that I feel exactly the same way. :)
The reversed sort of piano would work really, really nicely layered with the other elements you introduce later.
But I only point that out because this is just a bloody strong track. Fantastically well done to balance the laid-back easy-flowing pop feel with a heavier beat.
