Hey man, i like this. Like your other mixes on here, its ‘laarrge’. Big and bad sounding, I would imagine if i didn’t have headphones on right now, this would be rocking my sub around the floor and into the apartment next door :-)

Suits the pella perfectly. Well done

My sub moving is actually a compliment, anythink that gets my sub woofer rocking is a funky tune :-)

Whats all this ‘Im not a very good musician business?.. You’ve got skills dude…

oh I thought you didn’t like the sound. You said Big and Bad sounding

Ok, sorry, Im using english slang… Bad as in ‘Good’ (confusing I know).

Also if a track is ‘big’ its because its full of musical goodness, i.e its not just a weak collection of melodies. It has a real ‘drive’ about it.

I agree, well done! Suits the voice very well. I like your beat and the bassline!

You can’t go wrong with a bass line as the very first reason to rock.

The percussion works very well, though there’s an artifact or two in the synth fx that may go a bit noisier than intended. I’d almost like to hear the percussion ramp up into a churning volcano, rather than subduing that down.

The slow-burn rock approach works well with these vocals. The match may miss a tad here and there, but the way it all hangs together works for me. It’s got a rock-steady feel.

Bass lines deserve to rove, and it might have been fun to sequence in some harmonized but slightly different bass lines to give the piece an even fresher feel.

I like the way that you show how this vocal works with a power-chord feel. A fun mix, with a rockin’ heart.
