Hey Darshan,

Could you please explain what you have done or what you were trying to do in this song. About your vision for this track. Please disambiguate it.

Hard Work With Correct Knowledge+Information in the Right Direction is Not The Key To Success , But Success Is The Name Of these Three Elements Unified.
ok, What I wanted to do was remove the idea that you were sitting on a beach, but instead give the feel of just plain day dreaming wherever you are at a given time. that and I thought the waves crashing in and the sounds of the birds made it hard to focus on the music and was just plain annoying (at least to me; others may not share my opinion hence the 2 versions).

Other than that. EQ levels adjusted to make some of the instruments and vocals more pronounced and tried to remove as much white noise as I could, although I kept the "Vibes" track at a lower level because I thought that it should be treated like an instrument rather than a voice and therefore not overpower everything else.

As I said in a previous post. I am learning so feedback of any sort (within reason) is good. But ye I suppose I did take a little bit of artistic licence with this one.
I hear that you side-chained the kick? it's always a cool trick, I think I also did it on the original mix but very subtly. I'm not sure how I feel about it tho, I don't think that heavy side-chaining fits the song since it's a mellow song but who knows, maybe people will now rave to it or something haha.
Anyways, keep working on it, I think the levels need some work. Try monitoring in mono and listening at low volumes.

Thanks and I see what you mean about the level work, I also got some of the labels mixed up so apologies for that. Anyway, I tinkered a bit and here's what I came up with.

Hi @darshan. it is a little too much side chain compression for my taste but I like that you are putting your own artistic spin on the mix.
