Honey Jar-RoyM Mix
Here's my attempt at Honey Jar.
Mix 1: TWB-HoneyJar-RMmix01d
I can't get this one to sit right for some reason. In the end I think it's ok but I might just be used to it. Any thoughts?

Mix 2: TWB-HoneyJar-RMmix02e
I gave it another shot from scratch but I don't think it's much of an improvement, if at all. I kinda thought I had it for a bit and then it fell apart. [edit] After listening again after posting I'm not a fan. There's parts I like and things I learned to try again but for whatever reason I can't get a handle on this one. C'est la vie.

Mix 3: TWB-HoneyJarRMmix03f_mas
I can't help it. This song tasks me. I'll admit this is probably a miss as well. I can no longer judge. I just needed to go at this one again. Ok. I'm done...I think.

Mix 4: TWB-HoneyJar-RMmix04e
I did another. The difference is I kinda like this version. Though I think the bass still might not be right and overall may get pinched by the end. Or it might just be me listening too much.

Mix 5: TWB-HoneyJar-RMmix05d
I know, we're all sick of this one but I was bored.

As always feel free to critique or comment.
Cheers

I only have earbuds to listen and mix with at the moment. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

Hi Roy

Sounds great Roy .. everything sits nicely to me, full and nice low end. Listened to it on the Events and my little 3in. box in mono and works nicely!
Solid mix!!

i like it Roy. It has that earthy, slightly dirty sound that works with this style. I think you've presented the performance favourably.

RE: Honey Jar-RoyM Mix
I am going to have dissent here, guys. This attempt just feels overly pushed. The compression is pretty severe and not working well with the content this time. As a result, I would agree it just doesn't sit quite right. Roy, your unease with this is definitely felt. This is not your usual great work. Tone it down, let it breathe. There are some great players and you put them in a dog fight here which is not working, at least for me. Sorry 'bout that.

I listened to KZMusic's mix and had it cranked and it was clean and ballsy. At the same playback level this rattled my teeth and made my eyes water.

Fair enough and I suspect you're right. I was probably trying to force it go in a direction it didn't want to go. Never force a mix! Oh well. Unfortunately I've already off-loaded this one to make disk space. Maybe I'll give it another shot from scratch.
Thanks for listening.

RE: Honey Jar-RoyM Mix
The toughest part of this song is that damn shaker. It just sounds like distortion and is really difficult to hear past. It adds nothing to the song, in my opinion except annoyance.

I don't really hate the shaker to be honest.

Anyhoo. I added yet another mix because i'm a masochist. Ta.
