Thank you for the kind words! If Tyler Durden and Bob Marley had a jam session, it would probably sound just like this! 😄🎶

So jetzt bin ich bereit für den "James Bond"....Song Style. smile.... Schöner Song....klasse Brass und Strings Section... sehr gut umgesetzt. Teilweise erinnert mich das ein...

Sehr schöner Song...der sich gut aufbaut....klasse Sounds....den Refrain finde ich super. Der meiner Meinung nach schon viel früher kommen soll....und nicht erst nach 1:52 min....

emhead at 22.07.2024 23:20 about Losing you by In Contact:

Spätestens bei 2:35..." I feeeeeeel you. The sun it shines." ;-) Aber trotzdem sehr cool gemacht. Bunt, verspielt, voller Energie, haut gut rein. Könnt im Radio laufen...

Conny C. at 22.07.2024 22:38 about Feel this sound by T!K:

Ich mag es wenn man sich ein Stück ein paar mal anhört und immer wieder neues entdeckt. So viele kleine details zu entdecken wenn man sie denn sucht :) Ich mag so etwas...
