the best option is,

turn all faders down,
turn off all the mastering plugins behind the SSL mixer
turn off all EQ and Dynamics in the mixer ..
turn off all FX units in the rack ..

and then start with a simple level adjustment!

I always start with the kickdrum and bassline xD

and make a backup before you do that!!!!

Learn how to sidechain to get that big pumping sound and get some good monitors so your actually hearing the sound your making and dont use headphones.

Make room for drums with sidechaining and dont have a million and one sounds in your sequencer and expect it to sound good, because it wont unless you know what your doing.

Do a sound engineering course if your really seriouse.

To clean up the 250-600Hz region can help a lot. If you are unsure about EQing, my personal advice is to keep it simple and start with only using cuts. It worked for me, as I always was unsure about how to boost "correctly", but felt more comfortable with cutting things.

if he knows how to use a compressor , then he is half way there ,if he don`t sidechaining is going to go over his head , thats why i say learn the tools first .

some people jump to far ahead , assuming everyone knows the basics .

Beatsknocking didn't you post some similar questions a while back? Your just going to have to studying mixing. Try reading some books I mentioned on your other post. Did you look up "The Art of Mixing' by David Gibson on youtube like I mentioned? Did you check out audioschoolonline.com? They have some great videos there. It's going to take some time because there's no one right way to mix. Why not post your reason file ( even with just your drums if you want) and let us hear your beat and even maybe let some of us try mixing the beat for you. Then after words you could see how everyone mixed your beat and see how they made it work.
So many factors play a part on how you should mix a song. How can we make any real suggestions without even listening to it?

I think one of the most important things to do is critically listen to a track which you like / admire the mix of.

Experiment using all the techniques used above to try and mimic the sounds that the artist in question is achieving.

If those artists are Skrillex / Deadmau5 / Madeon etc. it won't be easy but I promise you'll learn a lot. I would save a copy of your original song file and just mess with it. You probably won't get exactly what you want first time but you'll learn a lot!
