Listen to my mixes and help me end my madness

Hello. I have gone mad. I just wanna create ****, but I'm tired of my mixes sounding different on every source, my microphone sounding different every take, and just overall being unsatisfied with my sound. Listen to these mixes I've done on 2 projects I'm working on. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Marcus. Your bass frequencies are mixed too low to be heard on a regular speaker. (Not the volume, the frequencies)

Add some harmonics to the bass and it will "speak" on a 5 inch speaker. The brain only needs a few harmonics from your low sine waves, and it will "fill in" the missing bass.

Hey thanks for the reply. I actually am not the beat producer. I am the one laying down the vocals. Got the beat online. Guess that beat is unusable then. But yeah generally looking for advice on vocal mixing. Should've mentioned that.

The vocals sound fine. The reason it sounds different on different sources is that you have no low midrange in the music. The relationship between the voice and the bass is very important, and if you can't hear the bass on smaller speakers the voice will sound too loud.
