New music on SoundCloud

Listened on some Airpods, the track is indeed a bit boomy. I think it’s because the kickdrum is pretty low-mid heavy, and then when the sinewave bass kicks in you have a bit of overlap.

You could fix it by hpf-ing the kick a bit, and perhaps add some harmonics to the sine bass and lowering the level of it a tiny bit (it will sound low and bassy but not take up so much space).

Perhaps boost the hats a bit (7-8KHz+) to add a bit of crisp.

PS: the track itself is really cool, totally digging it.
