    Hello guys!
    Rohan here from India. This is my first post here.
    Here's a mix I did of Adam Buckley's Drag Me Down.
    I would love to know your opinions on it and get some constructive criticism.

    Thank you :)

    Hi Rohan,

    welcome to THE forum.

    I'd start with lowering BD and Sn, make the sound at 0:26 less boomy, add some shiny high freqs to the HH and add some upper mids or subtle saturation to the vocals.

    Nice effect with the different delay pan on the vocs.

    Nice work on this track, it's getting there!

    I think the relationship between the vocals and the kick/snare needs work, they sound separate and should be working more as a team.

    Yeah I've got the same feedback from many people. Definitely a problem area for me. I'll keep at it.
    Thanks man!

    Nice work man!

    As mentioned the drums need some attention. Send all the kit parts to a bus, process the bus as desired and mix the drum buss into the song.
    Much easier way to handle drums if you are not already doing so.

    Thank you! Yes I am already doing that. I think the drums need more individual attention and also need to be toned down on the whole.I'm working on another mix right now and hopefully I should get it right this time. Will post that too.
