One rap, one pop

Hard hitting and ambient at the same time.

Blend of live guitars and synths with pumping drums.
Two rappers, with a different beat (instruments/melody, that is) on each verse.
The chorus has a ambient feel, with a lot of different sounds interacting under the singing.

Play at 720p for decent quality

I'm especially curious what deficiencies hit you ears first.. I am aware of some, but curious what bothers other folks. What you like about either mix is nice to hear to of course.

On Crazy World from my perspective, maybe make that intro going into the hook hit harder. Other than that, great track. I like it.

On Right Back, it's a kool laid back joint. On your harmony parts, it seems just a lil too low. Maybe bring it up just a tad bit. I liked the delay in the first verse. I like the transition in the 3rd verse. It changes the feeling. Maybe a bit of verb cause the vocals in the end sound dry. I also don't like the mix of the reg verse and higher pitched. Maybe once with the lower and switch it to the high pitched one (completely personal preference so you can go with your own direction). Great joints!

First use Sound Replacer... The samples you chose are pretty bad.... The Anita Baker sample seems like it's just "there" and not really cohesive to the mix. Everything is just sitting on top of each other... Have you tried panning? It'll open your mix more and can sit things better...

Sound replacer is something you use to replace sounds if the sample/audio is sucky, but I suggest re-working the track as a whole. Choose better drum samples... A better track results in a better and easier mix... Seems like the track is very muddy.

Giving the vocal more "space" would def. do the trick. But you would need to remix the playback in order to do so. Everything else will make things worse I guess.

Track called Battle by Kortexx.

Still unfinished, this is a rough mix as for now,

Its a very dense/busy mix with a lot of orchestral sounds but I still wanted to create an epic type Uk Hip Hop track.

I'm both producing and mixing this album which is due to be released soon.

The Bit-rate is not 320 as the file size was to big, just to clarify.

Your thoughts?

Sounds great to me. I like the way the compression pumps on the kick.

NOTE: I listened through my headphones.

This really sounds like something that belongs in a movie....seriously. Nice...

I think the vocals are kinda boxy and slightly overcompressed but that's a taste thing. I don't think it destroys the song in anyway.

Not sure If you want to hear from a "noobie" but here's what I hear:

1) "Crazy world" is a pretty nice track...my wifey even asked "is that TPain or Akon or one of those guys?" Lol!

2) I longed to have a lil' more something on "Right Back"...a lil' more production or backing vox! It throws serious jabs but it needed that sudden right hook, uppercut or something to throw a shift in there somewhere! Dre could have very well produced this track but of course Dre would throw in some (more) horn blasts early on or a tambourine rattle or a zoom shift somewhere u'feel? The backing vox seem a little tamed and held back volume wise...I'm expecting that at the second chorus things will get louder and so on but never get it! Very laid back track tho with nice musicality and this is a really good vibe...very RandB-esque (remember that dude? He was good!). Oh yeah and on that "aye" part in the end I thought was gonna be the cookie cutter 8-16 bar spit (rap)! To my surprize and a bit of dismay it wasn't! The status quo rap w/i a given song (name your genre) often has become so mundane and redundant! Yet, if there was ever a place to have someone spit the hotness it was at that point...like I said it builds up nicely to it with the style and feel of this song! Didn't have to have the puffy, BIG or Jay "yeah...uh huh...uh huh..." preface before the spit just that "AYE" would start the spit!

Very solid on both cuts bruh!

OK, this is the snippet of the songs I have mixed, the first two things on the snippet could have louder kick in my opinion but that's the fattest I could make it because producers didn't want to give me the tracked out beats, so I have to make something by eq-ing and compressing the whole beat, and of course when you hear some songs at the end of snippet on some wierd language that Serbian language, Serbia (East Europe) where I am from, but most songs are from USA artists...Those beats aren't produced by me (except last two), I'm mostly sound engineer (doing and other kind of musics but started with rap) but I'm a producer as well, there are lot of my beats in my signature...

Activist - Radio

Here's a Song I retracked & remixed yesterday. Its a radio edit so I want it to be as good as it can be. I kinda premastered it to the best of my ability. If it gets chosen for air play I will have a pro master it.

I mixed entirely itb only using plugs. Now that I listen I will turn up the synth in the intro, & maybe take some of the brightness out of the hats. Hard to tell, maybe without the limiter all will be okay.

I welcome any constructive criticism. Like I said I want it to be as good as can be. This is my top selling song on itunes.

MP3 is only 192kbps. Just imagine the depth & air.

K, After a couple of suggestions I removed a couple of Room tracks, added about 10k to the Snare/Claps, 5-6K to the Vox. Those room tracks added depth but muddied everything up. I guess I could've EQ'd them better & tried to make them work but I don't have much time to experiment right now.

Thanks for the input. If anyone has anymore suggestions please hit me up & let me know.
