This is amazing. It’s very different than your other tracks yet still has that Shockshadow - breathtaking effect. I wanna see you get another ED pick to make three on the side at once. Go Shockshadow, Shockshadow, Shockshadow..

One thing though. I noticed that on this track and I Never Get Out, the volume seemed a bit low. It’s probably due to the awesome quality of the tracks but I though I’d mention it. ; )

hehe…i’ll work on number three. yeah the volume is a bit lower. both these latest tracks had considerably more bass than the others, so it was either turn up the volume and distort, or use compression and lose depth, or keep the bass at volume and lower the overall volume just under distortion levels. from now on i think i’ll add the extra step of loading the final render into Sound Forge and up the volume a bit with some compression. thanks for the observation! : )

chills…the vocal & treatment are creamy smooth & delicious & not just a little electrified (I imagine sparks when I hear that crackly snare) - really like this….. .. .

multiband compression is the thing to do….just compress the bass and leave the rest alone….well, maybe catch some peaks, especially in the upper frequency region….hihats like to be quiet spiky….

true. i just haven’t had to do final mastering in a long time. i try to do all the compression and EQ stuff inside the VST host. guess i have to start doing that…hehe. *loads up good ole Sound Forge*

Wow! Definately getting a very much Portishead or Massive Attack feel on this! Time for me to light a cigarette, lean back, close my eyes and sip some bourbon.

Completely solid. The mix subserves the vocals very well. The quiet minimal repetition appeals to me.

Norine Braun’s vocals are wonderful, of course, and deserve the accentuation this setting provides.

You have such an innate sense of sound-as-sound. That’s why I always enjoy your mixes.

Great work! It’s really exciting listening to my piano inside your powerful mix.
