listened again last night in head phones. this is a truly artful track - did you purposely mix your vocals a bit low in the track? they are really lovely and i find myself listening very intently!

This is absolutely adorable! What a fun, delightful track! I think it’s the whistle — there is nothign more cheerful than a whistle, except perhaps for your sweet voice!

many thanks SJ, the whistle is great, e404’s got some really interesting things to build loops out of.

Great beat and sounds, but I think the vocals are much to quiet.

Thanks Donnie, I completely agree with you. I have a hard time mixing myself because I get very self-conscious when listening to my vocals. I feel like the itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie yellow polka dot bikini..afraid to come out of the water. This definitely needs tweaking and will probably get it, but I was in a bit of a hurry to get to the finish line. Thanks for the con-crit! :)

Yo JE, This is definitely hot to death. Great work and of course props to my man e404 but well put together.

Peace! ;)-

Very cool jacinda! I dig this and what you’ve added to the mix to make it your own. Though, I think the vocals could be brought up a tad.:) I loves it!

Niece, little girl you MIRA says “Very nice song this song I learned in kindergarten”
I am glad that I found some sample.
Here, each member of my family listened to your remix.
Everyone liked it very much:)

Very nice song and your voice .. beautiful:)
Just a thought:

Make music, songs for children.
I really want to be a lot of energy will give you:).
And it would make money too, because persuading the children to their parents.
Everybody would have the kids love the live music, you can feel at home!
(The parents also enjoy switched off, forgetting the daily problems)

Good luck!
Thank you very:)
Muchas gracias seƱora ;)

I agree with Donnie - this is such an excellent track that is let down by the final mixing - your vocals should be front and centre.

I love what I hear though.

Oh, Jacinda! I love it!

Lots of zing in the way you’ve put this together. It’s a really fun listen!

I love the tone, the feel, and the lyrics Jacinda. Makes me feel like a spring day, when even the complicated things seem simple. Perfect for trying to find ladybugs in the tall grass—or just staring up at the big blue sky—and wondering whats next.

Love this Jacinda. The whistle works so well with the theme and sparse arrangement.
I agree the vocals are too quiet and have great sympathy with you remixing your own voice. I find its a bit like running around the neighbourhood naked and someone has invited the news crew. Liberating yet scary all at once.

Love it, Jacinda. A great showcase for Error’s delicious samples and I adore the way it builds. It’s a mood-lifter and it’s exciting. And I, too, would like to hear your voice brought forward. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. And you’ve got it, girl! xxxx
