Give some comments.Peace
Sounds good to me, bro. Either the 2 track was very well mixed or u saved the shit out of it. Love the drum sound on all of em.

I swear I heard a sample from Disney's Aladdin in one of em...lol. Nice...

The Bit-rate is not 320 as the file size was to big, just to clarify.

Your thoughts?
Have to 2nd Trell Blaze...this is cinamatic! Great stuff bruh! I felt like I was in a theater! The vox were in a good place to me...nice touch on the verb. Both thumbs up on this...this is what making good music is about!

How about some feedback on a verse?

This is a feature I just did for another artist's track. It's been rare in the past that I'd do a feature for someone but I was feeling the track.

Anyways, let me know what you think of it.

Jik,
Sounds like it could be a club banger. I don't think anything sounds wrong or out of place but the vocals aren't grabbing me like I think they should. Can't put my finger on it (listening on my computer speakers). I'll listen on my DAW & get back to you.
Until then try boosting .5 - 1db at 2-3k & about 1-2db at 5-6k. Maybe even use a highshelf at 7-8k boosting .5 - 2db.

Just trying to get those vox to shine. All love this way, you know that.

Thanks for the feedback. Will post an update in a lil bit. Checkin back and forth with the comp and studio speakers.

Here's with the added boost in the highs. Sounds better to me on the comp and mains.

Sounds a lot better to me. That hook sounds Right. Maybe bring the verse Vox up to keep the energy going. Sounds like you were going for a Rock type mix with the vox back but I think it might sound better up front.
Just a suggestion though.

Keep shining Jik.

Mix sounds cool (I'm assuming you're going for that Kanye vibe).
I think the song needs something more though. It would be best to either have the beat change a bit more or change your flow a little bit. Just sounds kinda monotonous. I love underground music & try to give everything a chance but I cut your song off during the 2nd verse.
If you can't (or don't want to) change the song then change the mix. Add some panning, drop outs, FX, or anything for that matter. Just something to keep people listening. This is a common mistake that we all have fallin victum to at some point. I made the same mistake on my first album. Won't happen on this 2nd album though.

I said all of this to help. I don't try to knock people down, its not my style. Hope you take this for what it is.

I just listened to "Bring You Back" and the "can't" in the part of the chorus where you go
"I can't bring you back, I can't bring you back" seems to be out of tune.

Listened to Bring You Back. I agree with Ray on the monotone sound. It is a great mix and it's loud too, but the performance could be great with a change in dynamics. Come in as usual, if there is sadness in the verse show it thru sound, if there is anger or buildup then show it thru an aggressive voice. Changing tonality in a song really brings it to life, especially if it's something that's lyrically driven. I like it tho. Are you the artist and engineer, or is it an artist who is a client?


p.s. I'd rework the hook too, it sounds harsh to me.


All love this way. I think it's a great song!

I produced the song and engineered it. The artist is my close friend and we are sort of a producer/artist duo, both college students looking for a way in the music biz. I appreciate yall's feedback, I have heard the song so many times it doesn't even register anymore and I have lost all objectivity. Feel free to check out the other songs on the website!

I kept waiting for some sort of change in the verses that never came.

The lead vox sound sort of "boxy-honky" but I don't know if that was intentional or not. Most of the problems lay in the arrangement, imo...

Ohhh I think I have the first track in a major key. . .

Well here is something totally different. The main dude Paul is redicoulously talented. Raps, drums, guitars, pianos. . . too bad you all have to be subjected to the mp3.

This was kind of a challenge actually, I wanted to get the kicks and snares to smack a little more. But they had an old slingerland set. They didn't like the idea of putting a little more drum machine back bone in it, but it is what it is.

One thing I notice listening to a bunch of these is they are all kind of dark, are you guys just leaving it that way for mastering? Or maybe my stuff is too bright, usually it sound about right when I compare to commercial releases.

Its not bad but I would have to side with Bad Boy because I dont see the the point of it. The original production is nice and it would have made sense to do like a club mix or some different genre that would attract new listeners but this is just adding another medicore beat to it. Just my 2 cents.

Mario, its hard to get any producer to backup a new track on another producers production.

The responce on my end has been so big I just want to see what will happen.

Its a win for everyone if the record starts to pick up speed.
