Hey DB! MM calling from Barcelona.. Listened though my really shitty tablet speakers (that produce absolutely zero low end and low mids).. I heard a pretty good sound, wow it's a total makeover! Can't wait to listen back at home (I'll return this weekend) over my beloved earphones and speakers! I'll get back to you but wow you are doing a really nice job my friend! Greetz, and speak2u soon! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Hey DB, returned home and immediately listened to this arrangement more in depth. Here are some thoughts/suggestions:
0:00-0:22: Great intro, like the build up to tension
0:22-0:39: Nice beat and synth bass for verse
0:39-0:52: Nice to hear the chorus in this style!
0:52-1:02: This is a repeat from a part of the chorus that sounds not natural to me.
1:02-1:34: Great sound(s) in this 2nd verse. I noticed you dubbed 'If I believed in fate' in the background (twice), Maybe  it would sound more natural if you cut this part after
                   'If I believed' leaving 'in fate' out (and repeating 'believed')
1:34-1:50: Chorus again, I would choose between the back vox and the dubbed 'If I believed..' all together it makes a mess (in my ears). I'd also consider to add some of the
                   rhythm rock guitar here. Sound is great!
1:50-2:03: Bridge sounds great to me!
2:03-2:19: I'd cut the leadguitar here and add syth 'stuff'
2:19-2:35: Like the robovox (vocoder) sounds entering in this
                   part! What does the voice say? Nice chorus build up
2:35-2:51: Too much going on here for me, just delete some layers like the lead vox (so only the backvox remain)..
2:51-3:07: The robovox part is a great find imo, maybe it can be  inserted in more parts of this arrangement as a 'hook'

I think the arrangement could be better (as mentioned before) but it's so hard to explain exactly what I mean just by using words... Overall I think this is going to be a great remix, very nice to hear how a complete DB makeover sounds!! Great job so far DB!! MM
