    Hey everyone,

    I produced a cover of this awesome track for a cover contest, and I just wanted to know what you all think!

    My girlfriend provides the wonderful vocals. :D

    It’s just Owl City, sounding like sissy boy music, but all joking aside. Great vocals, you happen to sound a lot like Adam Young with the background vocals. I think the electro bass could use some more high end. Also the low end sound a little weak. The kick could probably use some more eq/compression. Sometimes some of the tracks seem to pop out like it could use some more compression. I also think that the track could use some more clarity like maybe some more high end and maybe some low pass filters. Keep the pads/string sounds out of the way of the kick and bass, that will help keep the low end clean sounding. Overall the track sounds nice but I just have some nitpicking. If you don’t have some professional electro tracks, try getting some. Then compare your mix with professional ones. Does it compare in frequency, quality, volume levels? Does your track seem muddy or dull compared to professional tracks? If you mix hold up to professional ones, then you are on the right track.

    God bless bro!

    Hey Travis,

    Thanks for the comments!
    I appreciate your attention to detail. Keep in mind, I started producing this track last Wednesday, and the deadline was this Tuesday. So I didn’t really have much time for making sure the mix was super tight, and also, I didn’t have any friends listen to it before I released it. Next time, I’ll consult you before I post!!

    Thanks!

    Hey!

    Thanks you! I appreciate it! I’m stoked, I still have to download the remix pack. My internet is ridiculous at home here in the woods, but at work/school its fine. :D

    Thanks for fixing the video as well, when I tried to use the youtube code it just didn’t show up…maybe my browser didnt like it.. but it seems to be working now, with your anointing.

    :D

    Haha thank you!

    I don’t know why so many people don’t like him…or rather, are afraid to. His music is very happy. and he’s a Christian for praying out loud. < -- yes I just said that. let it be new Jesus slang.

    He did a cover of “In Christ Alone” its really great to see him making such a declaration like that, especially since he’s in the mainstream.

    :D

    The reason why most of us don’t care for his music is because either the lyrics or the sound. Some of his lyrics sound like they could be in a little girl’s fairy tale, while the sound is overall very, very, pop candy sounding. It doesn’t have the beef that most electronica and edm has.

    His voice has a real pop sound to it as well, kind of like a whiny pop punk vocal. I guess there is nothing wrong with pop punk sounding vocals, but a lot of us don’t like that sound.
