Hey Lethargik! Listening to your tune right now. FANTASTIC house vibe on this, got my head nodding till it’s about to fall off my neck :slight_smile: I got nothing specific to say, the mix is really nice, everything is wonderful… I just really like it. I gotta check out more of your stuff. Well done! Now it’s inspiring me to make a house DJ mix… Would you mind if I used this track on a mix? It’d probably be similar to these: https://soundcloud.com/organicio-djmixes though I’d try to find some songs from other artists too. No guarantee it’ll even happen but I just like this song SO MUCH.

Shallow house? LOL??? What?? I guess the polar opposite of deep house?

Lethagik, this track sounds really official certified. Could be sold for sure. But only the maximization is too strong imo. It sounds good on speakers, but is almost unlistenable on headphones, because of the maximize effect. Can you take it a little down again, plus do more individual compression on each channel? Please don’t understand this wrong, your track is top. And a lot of dj even will like this maximized sound for sure. But dynamics make a track more enjoyable as we all know.

Or do compress the drums in a group with or without bass.

Thanks very much! Not at all, will PM you a link for it. Haha its a bit tongue in cheek, it’s what people are calling deep house at the moment but its not really deep house at all. Also feel like my songs are in a similar vein to thishttp://www.reddit.com/r/shallowhouse/

Yeah you’re probably right, it’s quite hard to compete with the professionally mastered stuff but make sure I don’t over do it. Will have a fiddle see what I can do.
