    Struggling with the mix and structure, this is the latest version. No title yet.

    First impression:
    Cool track! Nice voice and acoustic guitar strums.
    Mixwise:
    - The piano chords feels robotic.
    - Is the kick clipping?
    - The synth on 1:15 & 2:30 needs some lowpassing imo.
    - Everything seems to want to be upfront.

    This could go places but you need to make the chord progression evolve, too boring as is now. I like the vocals but get rid of the auto-tune or make it less.I think this track has an identity problem, doesnt know what it wants to be yet but work on it you are in a good start

    Thanks for all the comments! Sorry for the late response ..

    I was playing around and came up with the solo phrase between 1:13-1:28 which I somewhat liked and wanted to make a song around it and this is how the first try ended up. It's the first version without any specific mixing effort. Maybe not an experimental genre, but experimental implementation ... the vocals are from a royalty free vocal library that what suited best for the current key so the lyrics is 100% "mumbo-jumbo".

    Will lay this song aside for a month or two and then come back to renew it. Will defenitely consider your input and thoughts for the next version. Thank you all!
