I think this will be my last bootleg for a while, I can't just rely on doing these.
This one took a while to sound good to me but I think I have a reached a confident spot.

Except for the mixing and mastering which I think is all over the place.
As usual, I'm open for criticism.

I think it starts off pretty strong. The bass and percussion sound nice and give the track a real drive.

The female vocals however are way too loud and overpower everything and they seem to come out of no-where if that makes sense.

Like how the male chants sound though, they really fit the track well. However the bit where they pitch up on the breakdown sounds really out of tune to me.

I really like the drop with that arpeggiated melody you've added, that's really nice sounding.

Overall, I think this track would actually sound way better as an instrumental with maybe the male chant parts kept in. Just not a massive fan of the main vocals and how they sound here (That's personal preference though!)

Good work overall!

Thanks for the feedback and yes I also feel the vocals feel a bit too "on the nose". I tried to make it work, perhaps it needs some compression? idk
