Hi John, congrats on the EP, it sounds amazing! Thanks also for sharing how you approached its mixing, it's very interesting.

Sorry if i’m being off-topic but I was wondering how you deal with drum transients - either real drums & percussions or raw analog drum machines such as 808s - when you’re not purposely clipping them as an effect. I always find myself struggling with these when trying to achieve “clean” loudness and yet retain punch and dynamics so that the track plays as well on radio as in clubs. I find that using compressors with a fast attack eats up the transients and punch while a slow attack accentuates them, thus killing loudness. How do you manage to get both if you don’t mind my asking?
