Well I love the original Fleetwood Mac song. I recognise the song you've used for the low/bass synth but can't remember what it is. I think it works. I like the variations that come in after the big build up at 2:26. Can't really comment on mix as on earphones but nothing sounds bad. It gets a bit saturated for my tastes in the big build up but that may just be me.. I'd drop the bass line theme out for a bit at some stage. Overall very nice work.

Thanks - I know im dealing with repetitiveness on this track and its because i have not brought in and out sound sources enough - too much of the same too often. RZA says it best in Repo Men:

like from 45sec in to 2:30

I know right, Mandi emailed me with the pella out of the blue as I was working on the U2 cover and I was pretty pumped to do it. I wanted to go throw back 90s era with the Robyn S Show Me Love riff variation. To be honest, I am not satisfied with the arrangement. Repetitiveness is overcoming the originality currently imho. I am really flattered by yalls kind words though - was expecting/looking for a bunch of suggestions hahaha. #OCD

I got 2/3 more tracks coming with mandi vocals cuz she just sent me some more stuff. Going for a trancier vibe for the next one. 90s dance aint my normal trip lol

Yo this shit is tight! If u spin at a club and u dont play this? Yeah yer trippin, this is awesome man. I would loose myself in this so easily, add a few beers and the shit would get crazy! I can totally hear this in a DJ's mix, nothing but compliments from me, Great work!!!

haha alright then thank you bro. I dont spin - for now. Never purchased the gear since it was such an ordeal and fiscal responsibility with the time involved in doing smalltime gigs to justify buying it. I WOULD if I had unlimited loot though ha. I would like to know what this sounds like live though fasho. Dont know what kind of label would even pick this up theoretically if that was even an option.
