The Games We Play - Experimental Future Beat

https://soundcloud.com/mattmatterson/the-games-we-play-wip First time using vocals, recorded them myself. Let me know how you feel about the mix. I'm feeling a bit iffy on the snare.

You've got a really good grasp on melody and overall vibe it seems like.

Your main lead, I would use a different instrument for that so it stand out.

I like the hip hop esque rhythm you have going in the drums, Try to bring your kick out more by removing some other conflicting frequencies.

Nice job with the pitch bending, I'm a huge fan of that. Gives you that wiggly mood.

Would be nice to hear you layer those vocals later on with the same vocal loop +12 semitones, lower volume, slightly phrased. That's trending big time these days, sounds good.

Overall, the idea is great, it'd be nice for you to take a break towards the middle though and strip everything away, the synth occupies I believe the entire track.

I was actually going to incorporate the intro in to the first half with out the big synth so the second "drop" would have a little bit more energy. When you say phrased, do you mean more enunciated or just the structure of the verse? The vocals are actually stacked, one normal mid range, one dropped 12 semitones and the other up 12 semitones, so I should have another on top of those that is essentially +24 semitones? or Sample it and bump that up +12 semitones?
