Hi John! The EP sounds incredible! I’m blown away by how much clarity each element has yet still gluing to the song.

I’m fairly new to mixing and have read so much conflicting information on using EQ. What does your EQ approach/philosophy look like? Specifically, I struggle with knowing when to be surgical or tonal.

Quick example: I often find myself cutting 2.5khz of female vocals only to lose them in the mix...or remove upper-mids of a synth bass (so it doesn’t mask the vocal) only for it to become dull and boomy.

I would love your thoughts on range allocation/when to reach for an eq; seeing how this EP sounds sonically perfect. Thank you!
