This is totally unmixed. Made it at about 2 AM last night, and I so I didn't have the time to do anything in that aspect to it. I was kinda going for a Flying Lotus type beat with a different emphasis in samples. I would love feedback on the mix, my drum programming, and just anything else you folks can notice about this song.

John Avino gave feedback to Badabinski for “Cowboy Guns”:
Definitely feeling the Flying Lotus vibe...perhaps a bit too much? I really dig the way your different rhythmic layers interact, but I just feel that melodically, the piece isn't all that interesting (it doesn't seem to go anywhere), and your sound palette is a bit too close to FlyLo's. That said, it's still excellent, well-executed work. I'd just love to hear a bit more originality.

Sean Russell gave feedback to Badabinski for “Cowboy Guns”:
niceeeee. the percussion is sexy, that snare killed me. i like the sidechained compression like jamie said, and the glitched rhythm is tight, very baths-esque. the synths are really nice and dense, i think the nasally one towards the middle might be a little loud and abrupt though, not quite light/quirky enough to be whimsical and not quite dense enough to be mesmerizing, kind of annoying at this stage of the mix. otherwise, it's very well produced i thought, nice layering.

Hey, thanks much for the feedback! I kinda noticed that thing with the synth at the middle myself, so it's good to hear I'm not alone. Quick question; how do you think the mix sounds? I don't have any sort of good active monitoring, so I'm stuck mixing on headphones, car stereos, and home theatres.

its jamie again from a different computer, just showing a friend, I think that middle bit where you (im awful with terminology) turn down the filter with the resonance way up sounds really cool, even though its a bit louder. Its not super practical in terms of having a nice even mix but its in my opinion pretty exciting to listen to. Its not always a bad thing to master an album a little softer if it preserves dynamics that would otherwise have been lost.
