Re: JoshERTW - Accidental Death & Dismemberment
Ahhh Josh, I was really worried that you would not be getting a mix in on time. Congrats on April's mix (so far....let's see how far you get!!!!! Good luck!!) and also for new bub. I've got #3 on the way in a couple of months (more similarities!).
Ok, onto the mix, typing as I listen. Very chilled verses, with the guitar really pulled back. Works well. What did you do bass wise as it sounds a lot more prominent in the low end and has lost a little of the high end distortion sizzle. That seems to work well in the verses, making it even more chilled, but I personally like the aggressive nature of that high end in the heavier parts. I think it also effects your kick a little too. You have covered it by accentuating the attack of the kick, so both can still be heard. Vocals sound pretty good, but the "you just met me" section of vocals don't quite feel as attached to the mix as your other vocals. I REALLY had trouble with that part. I would imagine it is just a case of adding a hint more, or different ambiance to that sections, as everything else has it due to the slap back tracks. Nice rocking section at the end, the e guitar solo is clear and well balanced. The kick seems to have more weight there too, so I'm not sure if you did something there or if it's the bass and drums working really well in that section with the set up you used.
Not as similar to mine this time around , but still a very good mix.
Get some sleep, keep rocking (with/to) your new bub! Brainwash them early.....
Rules do not belong in music. Like food, there are flavours that work well together, but in the end, it's each person's taste that determines the quality of the meal.
