    Don't keep the bass on both tunes, sounds messy and weird. NOt all tunes but most i think

    Bring in the tune more and more every 4th/8th/16 or whateva, adjust EQs so you don't muddle the sound or lose energy in the mix, pick tunes that complimet eachother, etc etc

    Yeah...
    Never have 2 basses imo unless its a breakdown but even then low frequencies can conflict with each other
