Hi Tony. Mix sounds leveled nicely. One thing is popping out at me. The vocals are quite sibilant. The "s" are very bright. This commonly happens when adding compression to vocals. To my ear either notch out those frequency's or employ your favorite desser. If you are happy with your mix you can take or leave my suggestion. I think if you go back and listen again, you will hear it. Or put the tune down for a few days then go back. its a nice mix. I like that you left all the punch of the drums and the bass relates nicely to it.

Cory, thanks for your great suggestions! Your right on. I also hear it. Unfortunately, I received the vocal track with the very bright "s" and effects. I asked Ben to redo without all the compression and ringing effects. The short of it is, he is not on Kompoz and did this vocal demo as a favor. He may redo but it could be a while due to his time constraints. I therefore think it may be best to publish only the instrumental version for now. Plan to keep the vocal version in check until I get the clean vocal track to work with.
