20 Step Steady

By miraclemiles on August 16, 2020 11:50 pm

A little light fun for the summer time. Maybe not the usual vibe or a place I go to often, but I got a soft spot for some happy, light, reggae-tinged tunes in the hot summer time. And hey WB is the place for a little goofy fun. This was a 2016 track, spiffed up a little (still not the perfect mix but whatever), added some vox and things, and kinda feeling it this hot Sunday. Hope all are good our there!

It feels a little more lo-fi than usual, but the happy fun vibe summertime vibe shines through for sure.

fun factor 100%. Well done.

The happy sauce is thick on this one. Nice pacing and I like how that flute texture is gently detuned for a little spacey thickness. Man you are killing it on the vocals lately. Good message too.

A fun track indeed.  Enjoyed all the percussion and that playful melody.  It kind of reminded me of Len's Steal My Sunshine a bit with it's feel good vibes.

Yeah, lo-fi by accident actually, but hey, whatevers, maybe that's a good kind of lo-fi! Glad the summertime vibe shined through. Thanks!

Mmm, happy sauce! Thanks so much, glad you liking the vox, always a little challenge, but am trying. "gently detuned for spacey thickness" needs to be a motto for sure. I kind of thought this one would be throway, too cheesy, who knows maybe will keep it around. Cheers!

I like this - especially the horn thingy.  I might want a low cut on the vocals, but cool bouncy vibe and the reverse thingy was the JAM.  Mad early Beck vibes on this jam

Thank you, glad you liked! I found it cheesey in some ways, but hey I like cheesey sometimes and gotta go for it. Love some Beck too, that's a great compliment. Good call on the low cut on vox ... I think I need to do that more often, always lots of low end on my voice mucking things up. Vox are hard to mix, lots to learn!  I don't remember the reversie thingy, gonna go back and check that!
