Tried a new drum treatment this week which I've 50/50 on. Makes them kick out a bit more although I think the shakers might be a bit too toppy. Any thoughts appreciated

This is great--totally digging the drum/percussion, subtle pads, and vocal edit.  Maybe I'd say back down on the shakers 2dB or so.  (I did the same thing once with a triangle on a track. Sounded great when I was working on it, and then the next day, it was triangle player was really enthusiastic about this gig, I guess.) Maybe pull the hats back a touch, where they're higher.  But still!  Very nice track, fav'd and downloaded.

Thanks OneZero, yeah I had a feeling about the shakers as well, but just after I'd mastered it and sat back and really listened to it. I think some of my mix downs are a little too top end at the moment so need to tame them a bit as well. Feedback much appreciated
