Having sought some advice on final mix/master sound (thanks Tim Speight, Mark Wityszyn, Jim Parker, Tim Hudson) and I think That Thing & Mamacita (Slow Down) now have the required OOOMPH (thanks Mark!)

Jim is a guitarist with whom I first began to take my early steps towards becoming a pro musician and we have recently got back in touch via the wonder of social media so can't wait to hear his
Had the pleasure of working with Shaz Stacey again yesterday. Some really tight, lovely backing vocals that will blend into the excellent lead vocals I already have and give real weight and presence to everything. Looking forward to speaking to Tim 'Spag' Speight today - a real master of the mix who worked with Pete Waterman in the 90s and also for Ministry of sound.
