If Only (Got the Fun Factor)

This has been a lot of fun to put together -- especially the bridge, which came together the last couple of days.  Much more EDM/Dubstep oriented than usual, which helps the fun factor i hope.

I think this turned out really well! The mix is very good. I might EQ some of the mud out of the lead vocal, particularly when singing the lower octaves. I believe it would clarify the vocal.
 
Regards,

Mixing is all about control.

A lot of tasty things in this song.  It sounds like a lot of hard work went into it.  The overall arc is really good.

Thanks Dan and eph, appreciate the feedback.
 
Dan, as always, you have golden ears.  I went back in and applied EQ across the vocals -- should clean it up a bit.  Thanks again.

I really enjoyed that...   There is an EDM/dub edge to it, but for me it still has nice catchy pop feel (particularly the vocal) that carries the song.  I can imagine this on the radio...
