      Hi PLAPA!

      This is my take on Super Rad.
      Although this is an analog recording it's very bright.
      Is this how they recorded back then because of the deficiencies of analog tape?
      Tried to bring the vocals and guitars a bit more upfront, but I recreated the 'here we go again-delay' of the original mix.

        Hey Patrick, sounds good. Reminds me of misspent youth :-). Delays worked great.

        Kick and snare may have a touch too much attack, and the kick is a little slappy. But otherwise has a great energy and nailed the bass tone, especially in the higher parts. Small note - 'Step off homie' is a touch forward and doesn't quite sit in the mix.

          Hi James!
          So you know this song from back in the day... very cool!
          I thought that 'step off homie' got a bit lost in the org mix so I boosted it, but I backed it off in the latest version.
          Snare and kick are slightly altered to.

            It's from somewhere in there. I was more of reggae fan but I had a lot of friends who were 3rd wave fans, and played in a few ska bands.

            Nailed it with those changes. The drums feels much less aggressive which seems to open up the rhythm. And 'step off' sits better now. Well done.

              Thanx James!
              Yes, there's really no need to make Travis Barker's drum more aggressive...
              I learned about ska from the English bands end 70's-begin 80's when I was a kid.
