I havin a difficult time with this mix…I guess my main beef with it is that it is too minimal? I’m not really feelin the jingle bells they kind of take over a little too much. The hook is left naked a lot and imho it is really calling for some other sounds to fill it out, (a heavy bass melody and some deep kicks perhaps) it is too good of a hook to leave it without more underneath than jingle bell stutter stops.

I understand the amount of soul energy that goes into the creation of music, so I hope you take this criticism constructively…but when my ears compare this to a your Deseprendere mix I know that you’re capable of much better.

I enjoyed your analysis.

Thanks for your positive criticism.

I’ve noticed that a lot of modern radio-hiphop doesn’t have much fx, including reverb but this track takes that to an extreme.

There’s no such thing as a recording with zero fx on it, even it’s just to imitate the experience of being in a room where sound bounces off of walls and furniture, etc.

I think the novelty jingle bells thing could absolutely work if the overall sound felt a little more natural (like it happened on earth, not in a computer).

A TINY bit of reverb, compression and eq could go a long with this one.

Thank you for your comments. Your points are well taken.

EDIT: I put a little ‘verb on the master, and found a sound for underneath that might work.

I like the sleigh bells. Timbaland has his signature drums. I might be known as the sleigh bell guy!
