Nice piece Lilith… Everything seems well balanced, the guitars are just nice equalised. The listening is quite pleasant. Maybe I miss some additional robustness/punch on the bass, but possibly that’s me.
BTW what is the voice sample?

Thanks for sharing,

Alberto

Thanks AlbertoZ70!

I always have issues with the bass. Most of the time it’s not loud enough. I’ll look again into it and update the track maybe. The sample is that one here: https://freesound.org/people/reveling_john/sounds/65812/

The strange thing is: That’s not the music I listen to myself :). I started a track yesterday and that one again goes into the dance / ambient direction with a little arabic touch. edit: Just turned up the bass :star_struck:

Cheers,
Marco
