I hate to say it but some of these tracks really don't go well together at all, really really need to look at how the mix flows. Twilights into Rock It was just horrible, sorry dude. Also so of the structure was a bit iffy, like Set It Off just cuts and i think it was a bar early when dropped with Rock It. I feel a proper sit down is needed, try lots of different tunes over and over until it flows. I spend hours gettin the tracklist right! I really like all the tracks, I just woulda ordered them differently.

Your eqing has got fucking loads better tho, really impressed with that man!

I think this was mainly down to trying to get things locked but a few times tunes sorta sprung outta nowhere, that'll just come with time so not to worry.

Hope that helps.

thanks for checking it out russ, yeah i totally agree about some of the tunes not working together, i think thats down to me just rushing to get a mix out. im gonna spend quite some time on my next mix, ill use mixes that work with each other.

Yeah I can tell it was a bit of a thrown together mix so now you know, I except big things for the next one lol!

That selection you posted is good yeah, but again going from liquid to jumpy tunes is a really hard thing to do successfully. I.e Beutiful Lies into Chubrub aint my cup of tea but thereafter works really well!

I can deffo see improvement so a final word, rememeber to constantly keep on the EQs, gradually taking the tops off and mids so that when the tune in completely removed its not noticable. And again when bringing in tunes try to keep it smooth and clean.

Peace.

very very true, shame about the grimey vocals tho
I actually like the vocals, especially at the breakdown- builds it back up alot better than the original.

Mix on the D/L

And when was heavyweight released?

Mustve been under a rock or something, been waiting for that tune for fucking ages...

:S
