Hello everybody!
This is my version of Allen Stone – “Naturally”
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rf4veGlEMnCFtuG4abgxTUTvgffocFlb/view?usp=sharing

It was a bit difficult to take under control all the mics bleeds, especially the ones coming from the vocal’s tracks.. I tried to put the emphasis on the “jazzy/chilly” atmosphere and give a special “color” to the electric guitars and the organ.. then I added a bit of reverbs and delays to give space to the elements and glue everything together ;P

yep you mantained it chill and calm. it was really a challenge also for me to cope with all the bleeds, especially on the vocal's if I reaised them the slightest then hats would say no no go back haha.

I think your mix is quite good, maybe just carve some 800-1k on the vocals with a dynamic eq because there are sections where those are heavy and seem to need some control. I liked your mix

hi! this is really good work! I like it! you managed to subdue the bass, it doesn't sound so heavy. it seemed to me that it was necessary to work out the guitar transients better and push it into the background. the guitar interferes with the vocal a bit. if you add a little low and high frequencies, the voice will sound more expensive

I really liked the dynamics and the tightness of your mix! My only observation being that the guitar sometimes feels a little bit distorted and may be distracting. Other than that, really nice mix
