i love the sustained, lush sound. cool drum track (would be awesome if it could be live!). really great guitar work!!! i think you could go even crunchier on the chorus. i am honored to be part of this production. the moving guitar/bass on the hook is fantastic!!! i can tell you put a lot of work into this. only one constructive comment, my vocal sounds off with timing on the bridge? not sure how you could fix it :/ everything else is amazing!

Thank you so much for listening! Well, I’ve misread the bpm of your pella, so I programmed and recorded all instruments one or two bpm off. I was too lazy to create everything again, so I’ve tried to merge your vocals into the music instead. Now I add the bpm to the project names, so that can’t happen again… :)

An interesting take on Wake up Kiss, very lush. The guitars are wonderfully played with a lot of work in this mix. Great drum patterns that match well.

Re: Mixing Snowflakes vocals. When I have mixed snowflake she has a very distinctive breathiness with complex harmonics. Those beautiful harmonics make snowflakes vocals unique and stand out in a mix. I try not to mask those harmonics by avoiding instruments in that frequency (150Hz to 2KHz) or EQuing that region. Fuzz Guitar sits exactly in that frequency band which may be why you find it hard to mix. Sometimes I use a chorus effect to push the instruments to the side leaving the centre clear for the vocals. The instruments on this mix could be panned to the sides leaving the centre stage clear for snowflake. I have also used side-chaining using the vocal into either a compressor or EQ. Another trick I use with snowflake is to reduce the reverb on instruments and to play short notes, like piano, nylon guitar or bell like tones. Many of snowflakes vocals come with a piano track and those are sung to match a piano which can make using other instruments tricky. Unlike many ccmixter female vocalists, Snowflake’s voice has little bass, leaving room for some deep sub-bass and drums. Other vocalists such as Kara and SackJo have different voices and need different treatment.

Thank you so much for your detailed reply! That’s exactly what I was looking for. I’m currently working on another remix of one of her pellas and I’m excited to try to work with your suggestions. Thank you!
