Good Morning everyone!
Here’s my mix of Actions “One Minute Smile”
https://drive.google.com/file/d/163Zf5McXu43avEThBOPYZdpWeDyeNIGf/view?usp=sharing

I mixed this song focusing on the macro dynamic first so I grouped the main elements and start from there, and then I processed the single instruments (when necessary).. I used a lot of effects (especially delays and reverbs) don’t know if they fit perfectly into the genre, but I had little time to listen back to what I’ve done ;P

Hi Magghy. God job. I think the mix has a good level balance.
On the other hand is a bit centerd in mid-lows to my ears. I miss a bit of more top-end.

Me gusta lo tuyo!!
Personally I'd prefere MORE kick, and bass... But I feel the energy. I like it... ...
I think I don't post mine...

Thank you guys! I think it's my problem.. I'm a bit oversensitive on the high frequencies lately, so I tend to tame the top end more than I should.. In this case I have to force myself to rely on reference songs 😅

Really enjoyed this...I can actually notice the depth in your mix which is something that's sort of a challenge for me. The high end is the only issue I'm noticing all in all great mix!! @MAGGHY JI

Hi Magghy, I never got around to finishing my mix on this one, but should've just put it up anyway. I'm glad you did, as the balance here is pretty good, especially the vocals!

I reckon the guitars and drums could be a little brighter, and obviously a big challenge here with the drums is that the kick was only recorded with a trigger, so needs a sample replacement (and for my taste, the snare also could do with a sample). All in all though, I think this is one of the better ones I've heard from you. It holds its intensity and brings the vocals up as the feature!

My attention goes mainly to the LF of the guitar sound. It feels for me too much somewhere from 200 till 600. It takes away the attention from the vocal. But that's how I experience it 😊. Hope my comments are constructive for you.
