    I love the vocal shots! this beat is smooth. Would love to hear some sort of break from the drums once in a while. It would make the drums hit harder! Great work!
    where did you get the vocals from?

    mind returning the favour? Jazzy Trap Track (Feedback 4 Feedback)

    hey, it's good. I like the atmospheric vibes! and nice reverb. ...might be a liiitttle bit quiet though, ..I'd say use a reference track to compare mixer bus (master) volumes. Just use that for the volume though, your creativity is out of this world haha the beat is fire. nice job!

    So, I wasn't able to listen to this on my monitors last night and after listening today, I think I might have fixed a lot of my mix issues. Maybe.

    Thanks! I got both vocal clips from http://freesound.org. Great site. I always have fun digging around there because people upload some pretty out of this world random shit. I just updated my original post with a revised version of this, and I took the drums out occasionally as per your suggestion. (: Thanks for the wonderful feedback! I'll be returning the favor momentarily.

    Thankyou. I revised the track. Actually ended up lowering the reverb on a lot of things because I think it was just washing it all out way too much. Brought up some of the other elements, lowered the kick a little, and used some sidechain per someone else's suggestion. After a balancing act, I think everything should sound louder and more cohesive now. What do you think?

    I really like the vibe you've created with these lush sonic palette. Haven't heard it before the changes but track flows smoothly. I just feel that a stronger sub on the kick would lead to a fuller and warmer sound. Still enojyed it.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    On Radium: I really like the intro. The bell that comes in when the beat drops is nice. Love 1:10 when that synth jumps up an octave.

    On Affection: Woah. This is wild.

    Firstly, the intro is off-kilter in a neat way. There’s something that doesn’t seem to harmonize right to me, though. When that beat drops, there’s a sense of conflict between the notes playing prior in the intro and the pitch of the pad that comes in at about 0:20 that sounds almost uncomfortable to me. That could be intentional, and it could also just be my ear.

    When the beat drops, your drums and bass link up for a very dub moment and then fall into that rnb sound you were mentioning, then it goes almost a different direction entirely around 2:00 - it takes on a more hip-hop vibe. I’m not sure what to expect during this part and I want to. I think it’s because the beat is doing a lot of different things that don’t loop back and there’s not really a lot else to keep it all familiar. A little bit of repetitiveness might help me not feel so lost as a listener.

    Really diggin the part around the 3:00 mark. It feels more full and I feel like I know more of what to expect from the beat and I can nod my head to it. It’s more comfortable and flows from this point.

    Super interesting track! I like that dubby bassline. (:
