Re: Hated Love - Tangra Mix
Great intro Tangra. I'm digging that modulated guitar and you brought it back nicely when the vocals kicked in.
Wow, awesome transition into the chorus. Vocals sound great and the mix has a great deal of energy. The tremelo'd guitar is a great idea and I think you got it 90% right. It just does not quite sound as 'locked' to the tempo of the song as it could have been. I'm sure you used synching options but it just did not quite feel as tight (I'm being really picky here).
The bridge is the Achilles heel for most of us and I think you got most of the way in getting it right with the lo-fi vocals. The muted bass is a great idea in the final chorus, but I would look to remove more than just that to have even greater impact, even if it was just the synths.
I gotta say, this is my favorite mix so far and you have done an awesome job in trying to liven it up, keep it interesting and keep the momentum going. I'd give you 4 stars as I think some experiments did not quite work, but you're getting 5 simply because you made enjoy the song and genuinely had me excited in the choruses. That, in the end, is what mixing is all about and you nailed it. Awesome job!
Rules do not belong in music. Like food, there are flavours that work well together, but in the end, it's each person's taste that determines the quality of the meal.
