    Greetings from Argentina!

    A couple of weeks ago we released our first single and I thought why not throw it in here and maybe (if I'm lucky) get some feedback from some random corners of the world.

    For the time being we're just a duo but we're in the midle of putting a band togheter and recording our first EP. I recorded it, mixed it, and mastered it in my home studio (also played drums, bass, lead guitar and i'm one of the voices too :)).

    Seems cool, so far. Looks like we get to hear the chorus only though. I agree about some needed mix adjustments but this would have some potential imo

    Liked so much! Listened to it in a mac book, not in a good sound system, so my apreciation is about musicallity, composition, arrangements. Transmits energy, good dinamics and
    phrasing, lot of vibe, good production! Reminds me a good time from rock nacional, when musicians were focus on inspiration. Keep going!
    You deserve a bunch of claps. Sorry my poor english, me from argentina too!

    Shieeeeeeeeeeet I just realized that if I post a spotify link it only reproduces a fragment of the song. It starts right on the "bridge".
    I'll post a bandcamp link if it's possible, we have no youtube video yet as we're waiting for a friend to finish it.
    Sorry and thank you for your time hehe.

    Thanks, I was insecure about that, as this is the first song I mixed in a new control room. When I listened to it in other enviroments I thought it needed more bass but I couldn't make it work like I wanted.


    I don't really know what you mean with "wrong placement" but I totally agree that it sounds too wide, like the guitars are too pushed to the extremes, almost feeling lonely in there. It was a concious decision, tho, as my mix references at the time where really old and minimal disco tunes where that usually happens. Don't like it on my studio monitors, but LOVE IT on the usual cheap mediums.

    Hehe well I tried to make those elements very prominent and they really sounded prominent in most mediums. The idea was being radiofonic and in your face but "not big"

    Gracias man, esas palabras significan mucho para nosotros! Somos pulgas que intentan pararse en los hombros de los gigantes. Jaja.
    Somos de Santa Fe por cierto, cuna de la constitución, la birra y los alacranes.

    Cumpa, aca estamos en la misma, yo soy de baires, tierra de adoquines y gorilas, jaja! Tengo un estudio de grabacion y una productora audiovisual. Buscame por el fb, tal vez algun dia coincidamos en hacer algo juntos. Pegate una vuelta por mi perfil, ahi esta la pag del estudio y las redes, estamos haciendo un ciclo que se llama pulsando, en el que producimos un video a bandas under y emergentes.

    you dont need to defend your track, and personality, and even no need to believe or accept anyone said to you,
    just move to other studio then listen.

    Brothers! I want to congratulate you on your record..
    Song, upbeat fun and pretty good! radiofriendly
    Band performance, YES
    Production YES.
    Mix YES!
    Amazing job, absolutely nailed it, nothing wrong at all in the mix at all, sounds perfect (listing on good monitors), great space and vocal placement, the eq is right.Kick there with the bass and punchy.

    Now for more information please.
    What microphones where used? Vocal mix also please.
    What outboard hardware was used, including amps, what software was used, plugin chains, vocal,
    How did you get the mix to sound so clean, what there much compression and reverb,
    What did you use to master this track..Thank you in advance, and look forward to hearing more.

    love the energy of this song. great job. i agree that there seems to be a weakness in the bottom end. but i actually like the expanded audio image. sounds great in headphones. keep up the great work.

    Great song! Love it a lot. Anthemic. Super freaking catchy and danceable. Almost annoyingly so! To the extent (although I have no idea what most of the words are!) I kinda imagine it (56s+) being the start of a theme from a TV show called Amigos, and hope someone (you?) will edit this:



    To make it less annoying! Or maybe (if you make a video) have your band jump in and out a fountain with 90s haircuts? It's the least you could do... :D
