So, once again, I'll post a song of mine that is not in a different genre. It is just about the ability or the impossibility to keep the smiley face, even if you have to deal with some huge problems and fight against the inside man looking for a nice but short and violent moment of madness. But you...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC012 August 2018 - Winners announced

Nicely done Donkey T, a well deserved winner, backed up by Moa's equally sick submission. I'm honored to make a humble 3rd place amongst such prestigious songwriting, you dude's faarking rock. Mix wise (and in common with some other stuff I've heard of yours before) it's nice and clear, but lacking ...

9 pts -Moa -......
Personally I would have cut the 1st chorus in half and leave the listener wanting more of that great hook later down the track.

Great minds think alike..well, you and me anyhow!
Orr shit you did say that, now I look like a plagiarist hehehe

10 pts -Donkey Tugger - From start to finish I thought this concise little number was just great. The stabbing guitars really give a positive forward momentum and kind of remind me a bit of early Coldplay before they turned to shit. Nice vocal performance, and I like the way they don't dwell or ling...

A cool little pop-punk number, I especially liked the play off between the various vocals in the chorus and everything's recorded pretty well which made the mixing process fairly straight forward. I didn't get too outlandish with this mix, I just tried to keep it natural sounding, while at the same ...

I might also be pushing my luck within the boundaries of the rules this time round but I can assure you I was definitely dreaming of summer, and I consider every time I play to be a 'jam', so with that in mind, I think Mister Fox might turn a blind eye in favor of a bit more participation (hopefully...

Well that was a little unexpected but very cool nonetheless.
Congrats to Henrik and Isaac, and a MASSIVE shout out to @MOA22 for supplying such a sweet track going the extra distance with his great feedback. and thanks to MISTER FOX for his organisation.
Cheers.

Nige : Loudness -30 db LUFS integrated. (target = -18) Balance : Nice one, seriously nothing to say. The gut guitar during the verse 2 fights with the trumpet. Tone : Good clarity, with no harshness, I wish I have more sub below 60 (kick, bass guitar), the lowest bass notes during the verse are jus...
