Uh, I really like the eq balance in the entire mix. The bass parts are solid and controlled - I listened on headphones.
 
Jeeze, drums are great. Guitars are terrific, particularly liked the tremolo/rotor treatment around 1:16.
 
The best mix decision you made was to bury the keyboard parts waaay low - they are good parts but they are just there to support the guitar showcasery . ..  good call there. They are a great foundation for the fireworks.
 
That said, is this thing mistitled? How about "Stargazing with 9 cans of Red Bull"   ?   :)    Might have to clear trademark.
 
Cool tune, one of the best I've heard from y'all.
 
cheers,

Nice collab, guys.  Mix sound nicely balanced and everything cooks. Are the drums real kit type drums or pads of some kind?

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the comments. That Mr. Hugo did such a great job on the drums and then the mixing king just made it all happen. I really enjoyed working with you guys on this (and of course your patience with me). :))

Real drums by a real drummer. I did layer (not replace) a sampled kick and snare though.

Got a chance to listen again just now.  
Great job!  Love how everything flows..

Hello, Just stopping by. :) I hope that's ok with you all :)
I think this is a really cool instrumental.. !!!
I do get "artistic" freedom. It's really good for what it is. 
But going with the "feel" and title I feel that it's missing something. It's just not spacey to me.
The mix feels thin to me.
But THAT's (just me) I'm just trying to offer advice. 
 

If you can't face the truth about your music.... well here you are!!! lol 
And as I am... Can't spell, no grammar skills and lots of typos! That I am! and I speak my mind...

Hi, Guys,
 
I'm late to the party, as usual, but I think this song is absolute dynamite!
 
This is a really well produced, kick-butt instrumental!  Mesh's tasty guitar work was killer and really shines here, and the guitar tones were perfect for the style of the track.  Hugo's drums were excellent, and Ed's bass and keys were super, as always.
 
Outstanding job on the crystal clear, well balanced mix, totally pro sounding!
 
Fantastic collab, guys, great stuff!
Bob
