Interesting sound carpet with reggae rap and world music elements.

Nice happy chill feel and video friendly arrangement.
My two nits, soundwise (only because you asked); it might be a bit hot in the 500 to 1000hz range (or it might just be the resonance of that particular instrument) and I think it could be more dynamic with some channel separation (but I also think you probably know that so it was probably a choice). Mind you, I’m certainly no pro when it comes to sound and I value ‘how does it feel’ more than ‘how does it sound’, and it feels good.
great feedback! this was the first mix done on a pair of less expensive speakers I picked up the other day on craigslist - I’m definitely going to have to make some adjustments in those freq!
I probably posted the mix too hastily so your comments on dynamic range/ch. sep are right on too!

sounds good on pc speaker/headphones/reference speakers… various elements in the mix stand out at low volume… good dynamics early on… . good timbre on each instrument. i’m sure dolphins would agree… .

The watery loop is what holds Calling All Dolphins together, imho. The other parts swim around it like fish in the coral reef of implied Dub. Glad you got some speakers!

I loved the start but I think the piano fights against the rest of the track, because the piano frequencies are conflicting with the the same frequencies in the backing track.
The two combined are in the 500 to 1,000 Hz band which is making that area confused and overloud.
I would try another piano sound, change the piano an octave or filter the existing piano. Maybe also put chorus on the piano to push it away from the center.
