New hip hop track- work in progress

Working to improve my mixing skills. Vocals have proven the most challenging. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I typically do three tracks- main vocal, reverb track and a dub. This time around i went with main vocal track with Compressor and vocal channel dynamics, the dub has a compressor and unison effect and is just a copy of the main vocal. The reverb track is also a copy with a reverb effect. Any suggestions?

You got a nice oldschool flow man. The whole track sounds kinda oldschool. I think you should look out for some beats coss i get the feeling you are doing it all yourself and the beatmaking thing isn´t really working. Get a beat and do your thing man. Layer your vox and put a bit more agression into it

I like the beat, simple, straigth, punchy maybe the bassdrum could use some bassadd, but anyways

I like it. It reminds me a bit of Illogic and or Alias.

Are you using the master bus compressor? It sounds like your kick drum is triggering a master compressor and it muffles your vocals when it hits. Sounds like you might need a little de-essing. If you do add a bass, make sure to sidechain it from the kick signal, or it will get way too muddy.

I disagree with 909. Keep making your own beats. DIY. You'll enjoy it more. I like your Fall into Place song.

Yeah i do like it. It's very oldschool but i miss something in it. Maybe some more dirt and background sounds to fill it up a bit. What i really meant was his rapping is great and i feel the beat isn't doing it alot of justice just yet

Good work bro. Flow is nice and beat is good. Only suggestion I have is that the beat could have used a litlle bassline maybe, but overall not bad at all. Im digging the real hiphop sounds, def my style check out my work also, we share similar ears.

we need more beats that like this man. I just like to hear something different from what everyone else is doing.

I like this product you have here and I see where you going with it. Kinda laid back with an old school flava. MAybe could be a bit more agressive tho. PEACE!!
