This song is you the man sorry about that

Percs are on point, a little boring though - some simple automations using the echo roll/pitch delay plugin/reverse reverb algorithm would completely redefine the dynamics on them. Vocals sound great btw. Wondering how you got them so clean with such a muddy "pad/sample" on repeat in the background lol... speaking of which that needs some heavy highpassing imho. smooth flow though. im thinking possibly sidechaining the vocals VERY SLIGHTLY may have a pumping effect off the bassline which would benefit the smoothness of this flow.

Thanks for the feed back man yeah I could of did more to the beat but I wanted the lyrics to lead the song maybe that was a bad idea

That was really professional. I agree with sh73888 that you could do more with the beat dynamics and variations but it sounds real good just like that. You got the vocals down 100% all you got to do is mix up the music a bit and you will really have something.

Yes I understand what kind of things should I do to make it better? Should I use the echo change up the beat all together? Thoughts?

You know I don't think you necessarily even have to do that... personally I would just experiment with variations on the beat... like an extra hi hat hit here or that, maybe a syncopated fill or snare roll or something. Just a little bit to keep the listener guessing you know. It's really good already as it is.

Ok I'll play around with it more more feedback please

Yeah the vocals sound so good, you really nailed those. I think with a little eq work on that oceany pad in the background and some snare osc rolls like carl mentioned would be excellent. actually you know that 303 perc sound that was used during 90s rap alot.. doink doink sound kinda u would recog a mile away. it could be useful as a simple perc addition then fed thru echo roll for an interesting build effect. also for some reason i can hear a smooth jazzy stab like saxophone here and there like signifying the change in verse/chorus. also you just need a fat subbass bassline playing the same notes essentially that the audio sample u have looped for that pad is playing - it will take a lil trial and error figuring it out but it will be worth it.

I never thought of putting jazz into the track that's a good idea man 303 snare will give it more pop
