I really like it, very atmospheric and relaxing - and I can imagine that making this kind of music makes you feel better when you are sick This use of vocal sample and this old-sounding-tv-jingle(?) in 2.01 - very trip-hop-ish. I also think it is produced very well!

Got really excited by the snare, I enjoy it a lot. The bass is making me confused, I don't know if I like its square softness or if I would've wanted to hear it a bit more emphasized. Overall I'm satisfied, the snare is really making it, pushing the track forward.

Re: [Triphop] Dokan - Fever Days

Hej, thanks for your feedback!
Im happy you like it...

StampedeMe: haha, i asked myself the same thing about the bass... in terms of mixing, i had one version where i found the bass much too loud and maybe in the next, this final, version the bass became a bit too quite...

yeah, i heard some Portishead again recently (not the new, non-triphop album... the good old stuff) and i feel it is always the snare...

PPNDP: both cuts are from "Future Shock Documentary (1972)"

Cool track, I like the feeling and atmosphere. Only thing I would change is add a bit more prominence to the bass range. It could add some warmth and character not only mix to the mix, but to the whole "feeling" of the track imo. (Maybe not just an eq boost, but a quiet sub bassline an octave or two underneath the current bassline?)

Beautiful atmosphere with plenty of variation in the structure. Any further additions would be pretty minor.

The drum buss should be dialed down a bit to my ears. Just a tiny bit to let everything else come up. The bass needs a tiny bit more gain. Follow it with a sub synth like previously mentioned.

This track helps me relax while giving me a mental landscape of walking next to the ocean. Keep up the good stuff.

Nice percussion and emotional feeling in the track. That warm verby snare is yummy

The way the beat ends abruptly in the first breakdown confused me a bit.

I like the sounds that are like a throwback to sounds from the late 90s and early 2000s, and that there is some melancholy in it. Later in the track, kind of wished there were some longer sounds, maybe pads or air, to glue things together.

Overall, nice track
