Keeping mixes from becoming "crowded".
 
.
I've always loved the way your mixes have "space" around the instruments.

What sorta stuff do you do to achieve this?

To keep my mixes from being too crowded I make heavy use of HI-Pass Lo-Pass filters on each instrument to focus only on the desired frequencies and to cut out unwanted "noise " on the top
and rumble and clashing on the bottom. I also mostly just pan left/right/center . I monitor at low level to make sure I hear everything.
