nice job. sidechain soungs great. heres mine
The first one you lowered too much the cutoff in some parts and the transition wasn't smooth. For the rest is good.

The second is ok but it doesn't attract me so much but technically is well done it's just my personal feeling.

everybody's talking.. Vibe is dope, mix isnt very clear.. Do you know the waveBundle? There are a lot of nice compressors etc in it, could be usefull in your mixing

Wiley... The mix of this one sounds better that Everybodys talking but still needs a little work.. Your 808 isnt realy clear yet, using for instance the JJP Bass compressor from Wavebundle would make this so much more powerful.. I like the melody man, catchy energy


@Alejandro
The arpegiator sounds offbeat sometimes, its really distracting.. I also think you could make the bass melody better, switching between using short notes and longer notes could give this more grove.. I would also put the arpegiator down some db and maybe automate a lowpass filter so it doest sound the same every moment

@Matt-D
Good boombap vibes, really like that.. At some part the vocals are a bit to loud if u ask me.. And the mix is kind of dusty but with boombap that isnt always a problem

@Marc Duncan I like the beats it's just the mix needs a little work imo other to make it less cluttered but other than that it's all good.
@Alejandro Good Beat man!! Wasn't crazy about the kick and the melody was a bit loud but if you adjust it would sound a whole lot smoother.
@Type Beats Nicely done! Every thing goes together and the mix is on point.

Re-posting my remix the vocals were off still a work in progress but here's what I got for now.

Thanks man! Thanks for the tips too. It still a work in progress so yeah I will adjust a lot of things and yeah the kick sucks but I didn't want just putting an 808, instead something softer but I will try something else...

For your remix I can see you improved it but honestly the vocals in some places sound something apart from the beat. I mean the vocals not always sound ok with this beat. The voice sounds good with it but the vocals are too much static. They use the same flow for the whole song statically and this beat is too dynamic for his style. That's my opinion at least. What you could try if it isn't too difficult but I don't know because I never remixed a song is playing with the vocals. I don't know how but try to make them more dynamic like the beat.

At first, Happy New Year to all of you! :D

@Matt-D

Good job. Smooth old school vibe. I agree with @Alejandro that in some parts the vocals don't sound ok with beat. However, I appreciate your work and effort that you put into this remix because the whole song is very long. I also look up to you that you can make remixes because I have tried to do it once in my life and it didn't go well. :D For me the best part is from 4:20 to 5:47. The voice of the rapper and his flow is kinda aggressive in my opinion and it goes very well with the beat at that moment. But overall impression is nice.

@Marc Duncan

'Everybody's talking'- I like the energy of this song. However, the mix isn't clear. The vocals are hidden somewhere in the background and in my opinion there is too much things going on. The transitions were ok to me but I think you should clear the mix in the way you put vocals and 808s to the front of the mix.

'Wiley'- I love the melody here. As far as I'm concerned this song is better than the previous one. I also like the vibe and the energy in it. But... Bass is too quiet for me and drums are too quiet. I also reckon it would be a good idea to play with frequency filter at the beginning to create a build up and when the drums and bass come into play the whole beat should explode. Really this song has a potential but you need to work on it.

@Alejandro

I hate to say it but I have a mixed feelings about this beat. :/ I'm sorry. As @Type Beats wrote, the arpeggiator sounds offbeat sometimes and it indeed distracts the listener and ruins the flow of the whole track. The sound of arpeggio is too dry for me and the beat is too monotonuos. But keep doing your thing.

@Type Beats

'Mango'- First of all, mix is very clean. 808 sounds good and that guitar phrase you used is also nice. I also like the graphic in the video. I think the only thing that would be nice to do is to create more variety in this guitar melody. But overall it's a nice production. Thumb up. :)

'Smokepurp X Lil Pump Type Beat'- Nice distorted 808, nice hihats rolls. Vibe is good. Mix is well done. The whole beat has more variety than 'Mango' and there's nothing too improve I'd say. It's a good beat. :D

@Memento Beats prompts on this beat it is a banger!! I wish I could critique but I don't do that style that often but everything sounds good from my end. Oh big ups on the feedback the vocals were still off, it actually confused me because I had the tempo wrong but for some parts it stayed on beat for awhile but I finally found a reference track and it cleared up the mistake I usually make when aligning vocals. Thought about keeping that part of the track that you liked but I like the other samples too much, even though that part is my favorite as well Lol!! I am going to post the updated version in a second, Oh and if you have any questions on remixing let me know even though i'm still learning as well I can answer a few things peace!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
@Matt-D Thank you for kind words. If I try to make some remix in the future I will let you know. If I find the remix I was talking about in my previous post I can send it to you for review. Of course if you want to spare some time to listen to it. :) As far as this version of your remix is concerned I think now everything fits together.

Good beat bro i love the vibes.. The thing i kind of mis is a clear bass.. Maybe use a plug in with a bass guitar sound or some sine based synth for a good sub.. I hear you got the bass from the sample but I thing with the right notes and timing, you could give the beat more groove..
I would also reduce the hihat and snare some DB. And maybe cut off the end of that snare sample or make the release a little shorter
