Hello Everyone,

this is the first mix i'm posting and the 5th i've ever done, to learn the most i can from this any comments you have will be greatly appreciated!

It was a joy to work on this, nice song and tracks.
As for the mixing i didn't feel anything special was needed, most effort went into level of the lead vocal and getting a little more kick in.

look forward to your comments!

Hey dude,

i've got a couple of suggestions.

-The vocal could probably use a De-Esser. This is especially noticeable in the opening verse.
-I'm hearing some clipping when the chorus kicks in, make sure your levels aren't too hot when all that extra db kicks in!
-The vocal overpowers the instrumentals a lot in the chorus, the instrumentals sound pretty muddy, try cutting some mids and see if that cleans it up. if not, try a HPF on some of the instrumentals to clean up that low end
- Try a compressor on the vocal. If you're already using one, i'd suggest kicking it in harder on the vocal crescendo towards the end of the song. You also might wanna push a little more verb into the vocal to smooth it out a bit.

Hope this helps you man! keep mixing and thanks for posting!
Hi Starrtwo,
