Extremely catchy. I think it’s the way you’ve combined the percussion, bass and synths.

Nice mix. My one complaint is that it feels like the chorus vocals (“Stand up, c’mon, Stand up, all my fellas…”) are off-beat or maybe off-tempo a little. I don’t know what it is exactly, but it drives the timing part of my brain crazy. Of course, it could also just be me expecting those vocals to be on a different beat than you used them on. Good job overall, though

Thanks a lot Clarence, I appreciate the technical comment . I think you’re right about the off tempo after a while. Forensic made this pella at around 118,5 bpm but the freeware I use did not offer this decimal precision so I have to use a 118 bpm and of course after some time the tempo matching between vocal and b/t is lost. And the vocal sample is one continuous sound, no place to cut, well I was a bit lazy to try to slice the sample so I left it as it was. Thanks!!

Fabulous! I love the acoustic guitar sound — it’s driving without being overbearing and provides a great foundation for the rest of the track. Bravo!
