HI DB,

I'm going to type this as i listen because they say the 1st listen is often most valuable.

Nice opening - guitar and strings work well.
Something about the main vocal doesn't seem quite tight enough. Not sure if it's volume, EQ or a bit of reverb just to knit it into the rest of the song. Sometimes it seems fine, but at odd moments it just feels apart somehow.
I like the overall vibe though. All the instruments have their place. I thought you had dogs barking in the track for a minute, then realised it was my two hounds downstairs. ;D
I couldn't quite make out if it was a high harmony or a whistle/flute that came in for the last few seconds - sounds nice. Perhaps needs to be a little more prominent.

Good tune.

Digger

Thanks Digger, for the detailed feedback!

you are right the mix of the vocals needs work

and about that flute / whistle at the end....that was a bit of Habitat's vocal...pitch up high...


and about your dogs...i put in a ultrahigh dogwhistle too  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


 
 Hey Dutch/Hab  ;D

 Nice work guys.....good vocals. Nice textures musically. Flows along really well.

 Thought the drums were a bit 'harsh/loud' in places. But was impressed by your restraint Dutch ;D ;D

 The 'quiet' verses work really well against the chorus.....and the strings, and choice of instruments, create a nice 'haunted' feel

 I likee ;D ;D ;D

thanks for the comments, guys  :-* :-* :-*

about restraining myself.... ;D ;D ;D ;D i did mention this was just a work in progress mix  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Habi and I also plan on launching a full out dance / trance funked up (and perhaps **cked up?) mix soon ;D ;D

i am getting somewhere, and just to assure you it is going to be in the best (worst  ???) Dutchbeat mixing tradition  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D, so put the volume down a bit before pressing "play"


Yeah thanks guys, I'd pretty much finished with this song but DB has given it a whole new life, excellent work DB  ;D

I'm really pleased with the arrangement and I can't wait for the f###ed up mix  :D :D :D

ok.... ;D

here is what i am trying to add some deep bass.....well, a new work in progress mix, a "fuller"  ;D ;D 8) ::) :P sound, hope you want to listen....

https://soundcloud.com/dutchbeat-1/if-i-fall-will-you-be-there-from-habitat-second-mixing


Aha! Sounds good to me DB, liking the Dutchbeat vocal fx touches, it's becoming more DB all the time :)

And the bass makes it fuller, definitely.

But I have an idea, something I know you could do :)

Since your first mix, when I heard the lead guitar part used as a more prominent riff, I keep imagining that riff being played using some kind of synth (Alice deejay beep kind of sound) and the tempo increased slightly, with a more simple thump thump beat.
Somewhere between that sound and the main trancey part in 'insomnia' after the guy says "I can't get no sleep" (dum dum da dum dum dum etc) you know that part right? That sound?

Imagine our riff sounding like that, built upwards from that riff, from that 1/1 type of thump beat, with all the other cool stuff you've done slotted in to break it up.

Just a thought, could you do that?

Hi guys,

Nice ideas in this. The dance beat groove works with the folky music; doesn't overpower it or detract from it. Must be something in the air because a lot of the new stuff I'm working on with Katja is acoustic fused with synths. Perhaps this is Kitchen Music!!
