Do you like my mix?

Do you like my mix?

I've just started out doing audio engineering as my full time job. Most of the time I spend in my yet to treat new room is recording bands and vocalists in a number of styles. Most of the mix work I do is for music I recorded my self. I am pretty confident about that. Could be better of course, but for what I charge I think it's hard to find better. Plus my room still needs treatment, saving up for that.....

Now this song is my first mix-only job and I would really like some feedback, because I'm not so certain about it. I like it, but I think it lacks something. The client is happy though, that's the most important part, and he didn't want to pay any extra. But since I started doing this studio thing professionally all my clients were happy and I haven't heard a bad word about my mixes. Makes me wonder... do clients like it because they paid, or do they genuinely like it?

The song is also in a genre I'm not familiar with. I do mostly HipHop, reggae, soul, not so much rock (I think this could be called rock).

So If you would please share your thoughts, I would be much obliged.

......hi frankie....listening on it's a little tricky for me to comment on the mix. i think there are some cool ideas in here and I like the vocal and song.....he's clearly got a point of view which is refreshing. however i do think the arr needs some that the song builds in the right way and i wasn't always convinced that the drums were doing the right thing at the right time. might be a good idea to listen to some other stuff in this genre and get some tips.....some of the parts sound like they need a little tightening up also.
