    Yes, you’re right, thank you for making my words sound more kind and pointing out the main issue. ❤ from Germany

    I wish you the best of luck with whatever you’re going through. Whatever it is, don’t worry so much. You don’t live to worry, you live to be happy! It sounds hard, but its actually pretty easy. Just put a smile on your face 🙂 And if you need someone not only quoting Bob Marley but actually listen, feel free to text me. Love from Germany.

    They scammed us 😢

    You bamboozled me with this bass drop sound at the beginning 😀 I like your mix, but it’s not what I expected to come after the intro. A good kind of surprise was the guitar solo at the end, although it suits the intro more than the song I guess. Your song is only 3 mins long, why did you decide to end with this solo?

  • Sidney Schwalbach posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Yes, the mix isn’t perfect, but production-wise you know what you’re doing. I’d suggest learning about side-chaining the compressor of certain elements to the kick drum as this makes room for the mix to sound bigger without losing punch and without much effort. This is different for every daw so make sure to search for tutorials related to yours.…[Read more]

    I like the groove on this one. But I would highly suggest you to learn about music theory and train your ear on hearing scales. Especially when being so creative with all kinds of melodies, it’s essential to make these fit together harmonically. I encourage you to just practice this for half an hour every day for a couple of weeks and you’re ready…[Read more]

    • I agree for the initial chords but disagree elsewhere & your message is fairly condescending. This is because his Chorus sounds fine and you can clearly hear the bass fits the scale well so it’s not as if he has no musical skill as you have insinuated.

      I’d say the chords are overly dissonant for the first half of the song which is probably why…[Read more]

    This is really really good! I love your composition and mixing ideas. Your drums and bass sound amazing! I think the vox could sound a little fatter and stand out a little more and I wished the piano volume was automated harder so it gets a little louder suiting as a counter melody when there’s room for it. Keep going, you got serious skills!

    • Thank you! If you could just see and feel what ‘am going through in my life right now, you would understand why I didn’t mess with those “small” things… I just decided to finish it and upload it. But thank you again for kind words, I agree all the way! Greetings from Bosnia

    Your intro is pretty unusual as the stutter is so hard. Doesnt mean its bad. The melody here is in the wrong key. The impacts in the first chorus (0:46 and on) are out of place. Its a little disappointing you simply copied this to the second chorus. But I like the mixing you did here, its crisp and clear. The rap part was a great surprise. You…[Read more]

    Great track! Maybe misses a little air and sparkle for my ears. I wouldn’t go so heavily on echoes, but as an intro and outro its okay I think. Love the bass and your arrangement, the pre-chorus transports the energy pretty good. Keep on having fun!

    • Thakn you very much for listening! I agree that it misses a little air, and a little more clarity, but for now i think it’s ok, also they are going to review the song for the content more than the mix (hope so XD).

      Glad that you liked what i added!

    No, but now you say it, this would be a good thing actually 👌

  • Sidney Schwalbach posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Why did I comment then? 🤯

    btw I like your track, especially from 0:40 till the end 👍

    p.s.: If you’re looking for a new adventure, check out the current contest by HOFA College (https://hofa-college.com/post/xmas-mix-contest-2020/). They split it into remixes and mixes and you definitely have a high chance of ranking very high!

    • Thank you, Yup, maybe this is wrong competition for me,who knows. But when i hear word “REmix”, it sounds like something about dance and club:) And this is not the thing i usually do in studio
      Wish you luck and have a nice day! Thanks for a link to hofa competition one more time

    Well, I looked up this competition and it’s a mixing contest, not a remix contest. And I think you’re really good at mixing, so this is the kind of competition you should be looking for.

    The term “minimal” is of course relative. And I relate it to e.g. Javi Fusco’s remix, that I’d consider one of the best and most creative so far.

    Thank you, spacepunck!

  • Sidney Schwalbach posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Actually, dont tell Clo, but I like it a little better than the original 😏

  • Sidney Schwalbach posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    I love it! Sooo creative and well produced – everything fits together and makes for a solid remix. So far one of the best I’ve listened to!

  • Sidney Schwalbach posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Hey Rainbow, I honestly don’t hear a difference to the original (although there might be) and reading your text I feel like having to be honest and explain to you why I think you didn’t have luck with your past contributions. Especially when the judge is the artist or producer of the original track, they know their work in and out. So yes, they…[Read more]

    • If you think, i ve put minimum effort, its sad:) I have made my own vision of this mix without changing style, adding new instruments, changing tempo and etc. When i took part in Joe West competition, no one did this work, all winners just made a they own mix with a little changes ☺️
