The low end is a shining example of good bass management, with bass as a supporting role. It's strong, warm, and round below Hz and has percussive but minimal tonal bite between Hz - 2 kHz.
With bass, less is often more. This mix is truly a great example of tasteful musicianship and sonic craftsmanship, and though made by professionals I mean, Derek Trucks was able to make even a fibreglass Supro Folkstar Resonator guitar sound good here , serves to highlight great records can be made at home.
My favorite thing about the mix for this track and Johannes' style in general is how the sound design is inseparable from the mixing process. Different frequency bands seem to line up with specific instruments almost one to one. Each part is given its own sense of space by using different reverb parameters and send amounts ranging from totally dry to almost wholly obscured by reflections.
Moments of extreme density or variety are quickly contrasted with pauses or repetition for balance, with each section receiving its own treatment in the mix according to its compositional purpose. For electronic music producers who mix their own tracks, I think this track is a great example of solving mix problems well before the mixing stage. If all of the elements of a song's production are at your discretion, why not take the time to strategize rhythms and harmonies that will dovetail into your sound design, or timbral and pitch modulation that will dovetail into your mixing?
This is also a great example of how this approach to composition and mixing doesn't have to be the dry, academic exercise that it may sound like, and that vertically-integrated production can result in something that sounds funky and vibey just as easily as it can result in something that sounds like Stockhausen.
In this track, disparate acoustic and electronic elements are brought together to form an experience that is both emotionally impactful and groovy. This is a difficult combination to achieve in a song or a mix.
It is easy to seem insincere with an emotional appeal in a track that already has a steady, electronic groove, but this mix pulls it off.
This is due to:. The string players and the vocalist display a candid affectation that helps glue the track together, which probably made the mixing process much easier. The samples with which Werkha chooses to create the groove in this track complement the acoustic elements. Acoustic drum samples with a natural tail hold down the drive and sound as if they are in a similar space as the strings.
The acoustic elements of the track sit in a more natural place in the stereo spectrum. Vocals in the center and strings are only panned slightly to give the vibe of a chamber performance where the players are seated closely together. This leaves room for the sampled elements of the track to take up more of the far ends of the stereo spectrum with hard panned reverb tails and sample manipulation.
The strings are not only beautifully played but beautifully recorded. Mic placement is not too close, so as to not pick up too much string noise, and not too far, to avoid too much room sound.
