Hi Guys & Girls

Basically, because we can't go out clubbing in the UK due to Covid, me and my mates 'borrowed' one of Elon's rockets and went to another planet for a boogie*.

Anyway, the bouncers on the door of the night club were a bit moody, but in the end they let us in and a great time was had!

I happened to record a bit of it here for you to have a listen too, so any comments - both good and bad would be really welcome. Do you like it or think its turd? What would you change etc.?

Would love some feedback.



I have added my wife doing a bit of a Newsread vocal - although her brummie accent does comes across a bit!

I really concentrated on my levels - this one sounds night and day better now - listen how much the top one sounds distorted compared to this.



What do you think - does it sound better or weaker to you?


Cheers

Craig.

It's well chunky mate! (e.g. could have done with a nudge more rhythmical nuance, but also works without it) Proper dance tune.

Even considering you have an unfair musical advantage of being from Birmingham, the only word that comes to mind is "proper". I had to involuntarily raise a fist to the beat at some point. It's the sort of music that makes me keep my elbows at 90 degrees throughout.
