Ryan Cali - "Back Down" Mixed by Hugh Davison
Mix for critique.

Hi everyone,

I mixed this track about 9 months ago now but still really like the track. This is my first upload here and would love to hear what you guys think of my mix! As for mastering I have used some J37 tape from waves and a basic limiter to bring it up in level as at the time I struggled with how delicate mastering is as it's so easy to go too far and make the mix worse.

Anyway hope you enjoy the mix and any feedback would be great!

You'll probably be more interested in Mike's upcoming critique Wink but since I just mixed this myself, I gave a check to your mix
Pls take this with a grain of salt as I don't mix this genre.

Overall your tone is really great. And you got it to sound really loud without crapping it out, kudos.
I'm not digging the panning of the piano.
The vocal parts feel all very similar, I don't know if it could be a taste or a genre thing, but maybe add some sauce every now and then to keep the mix interesting as it progresses.

In the end for me this is 99% close, definitely really good work
