    Hey dude, I thought your mix sounded good. Your mixes were solid and it was banging throughout. All the tracks are slightly similar but that's me being overly critical. Overall sounds like it would be a good demo to hand out. I couldn't tell if you were using those sample decks at all but maybe you could try something funky with those.

    I find your mix to have great transitions, but it felt 1 dimensional because it is way too banger happy. A mix is a lot more than just mixing the the heaviest tracks you can find. Find more light and medium tracks and try building up to this part of the mix.

    great mix overall i thought, the transitions were very smooth and technically there is nothing i wrong i can spot

    i'd say i agree with Chris and Gary about it being a bit too 1 level, but i mean its a 27min mix so not a ton of time to change gears. Perhaps it could have been broken up a bit. I enjoyed (and have) a lot of those songs tho so it worked for me.
