What a great track from everyone! Super grooving! Riky's bass add nailed which version I was going to go for though! Top, top playing there. Fairly standard groove but I went for a spot of Motown double snare in some of the sections as I felt it worked well with the influences going on in the track.

The mix, on the other hand, was a nightmare. I've really, really struggled to get the drums in here - I think the mass of frequencies going on in the main mix versus my drums were what was flattening my sound but it's beyond my abilities (and patience) to sort out. HD upload provided to see if anyone fancies making it better!!

Anyway, enjoy.

No reverb on HD, yadda, yadda.

That sounds good to me Martin! Solid track by all! My hammond doesn't need more decibels.... It is in the background were it belongs....

Thanks, Kenny. See my reply to Alice as to why Marc's low in the mix. Hoping to sort a nice shiny remix out soon. :)

Nice! in your wheelhouse...

This is a super jam!
Many thumbs to all... :)

I would've hit the replay button like a madman if it existed haha!

It's matching the bassline so well, it brings such a solid foundation

I would put Marceys a bit higher in the mix, it got a little lost in the background :)

Thanks, Riky - great bass work. It's what drove this take for me.

I only used the MP3 for the backing mix so had no control over levels. Not all the stems had HD options and I hadn't the time to make sure all the individual stems lined up and didn't phase!

Alice has offered her stems so I'll go for a remix asap. :)

Sounds really great Martin... I quit uploading HD tracks on most things due to the space they use on the servers (I can't get the site to load tracks very fast anymore as it stands). If you or anyone ever needs an HD track, just let me know. The mix sounds pretty good as it stands. Very well done... sounds way cool buddy :)

Thanks, Psycho! As I said to Alice, I'll take you up on your offer of the stems. Drop me a PM and I'll sort a remix out.

Mannnn! that is just so dang good! Motown it is ! I haven't thinking about it before! well agree with Oli, it's a hell of job without the sep tracks, if there is anyone wanna try to mix, I would be happy to give my stems :) This is sounds so great Martin, so so happy you finally join us :)

Thank you, Alice. An utter joy this track was to play. I'll take you up on the offer of the stems - drop me a PM and I'll try and get a good remix going! :)
