To keep you inpisred, I attached three different songs I mixed and used in my lessons.
Here's how I mixed the class project stems: I went for a loud and compressed sound a la Madeon. To achieve that, I made room for the kick by using volume automation on the bass. Then used the Haas effect to make the synths wider. Although I used a lot of reverb, I made sure to reduce the low reverb frequencies so that unclear bass doesn't stack up in the mix. https://soundcloud.com/karelpsota/skillshare-class-project-karels-mix/s-YRqRr
This is the funky example where I used excessive racks to process kicks, snare and bass. Justice and Sebastian definitely have influenced the way I mix drums. Using a slow attack compressor can really shape nice transicents to your kick and snare. https://soundcloud.com/karelpsota/french-touch/s-ZMi6h
