Finding and exploiting the gold nuggets contained in the production
- [Voiceover] So I wanna talk a little bit today about…how you can really gain a lot of dimension out of your mix,…and I kinda just wanna play this song,…Doesn't Make You Feel Right, by Dirty Heads,…and make comments as we go along.…(hip hop music)…♫ This is for my people out there…♫ Feelin' like they're black sheep…♫ Runnin' from the wolves…♫ That are nippin' at your back feet…♫ Leather jacket, pocket knife…♫ Sfinsing in the back streets…♫ Burst into flames like a match to a gas leak…♫ Only thing that kept me back in school was art class…♫ Had a friend ♫…- So I wanna stop here.…
I'm gonna put in a couple of constants.…Obviously the drum kit is a constant.…And then the silly little general noise track,…which kind of lays a palette of noise…throughout the track that serves as kind of a bass line,…(static)…it's like a record being played.…And then, point out the amount of volume…and echo on the lead voice.…♫ This is for my people out there…♫ Feelin' like they're black sheep…♫ Runnin' from the wolves…♫ That are nippin' at your back feet…
