    Hey guys, dropping a beat tape soon but I’m really unsure on my mix for this track. It’s been a bitch to get it right and I’d love some opinions or thoughts on if anything sounds off of needs tightening up, as specific as can be.

    Interesting Japanese traditional vibe glitched some hip-hop sample play.

    Sounds like mono which isn't necessarily a bad thing and band-limited which can be a little iritating. Did you use mp3 samples?

    I would be careful with squashing this as you will loose a lot of texture, might be better off with some clipping or readjusting your quiet parts in the mix closer to the louder parts so that you don't get full on smash in the louder passages. Or you could go the other way lower the loud part down but you still have to deal with the band limited samples, maybe you can find the recordings on vinyl and transfer them even then sounds like late 50's early 60s there isn't going to be tons of air on that but at least you'll get much richer saturation and maybe some cool artifacts.

    To each his own but that's my take on it.

    yeah, it’s a sample that is far from optimal quality.

    i was worried about it having kind of a flat sound to it but it would be difficult to locate a better copy.
