Feedback on the winning Mixes
Solid production on this with a cool new spin on the melody. Definitely the one I’d play out the most out of the bunch. I think the best candidate to put forward to Armind.
Nicky Miles Remix
Love these progressive tech trancey vibes. Nice dark atmosphere, great production, original… great remix.
Ryan Bentham Remix
I know this is the most popular one on the vote… cool remix musically and arrangement wise with some fresh ideas but held back a little by the production IMO. Mix was very harsh and top heavy for me but still a great entry.
