Re: [Dancehall mashup] Ride or die - DMX + me
I agree that there could be something here. The groove that you've built definitely has a good drive to it. Just curious about the vocals, do you have multiple tracks playing with different vocals. It just seems like when there are multiple voices going the focus is kind of lost from DMX's lyrics. Especially the "rudeboi ting" sample.
I would consider lowering the other voices in the mix a bit. You could also try EQing them so they're not quite as full as the main vocals (even test out a bandpass filter which you could automate?). It might even be cool to throw on a bitcrusher or something. Especially during the breaks that just have the clap and vocals (they sound a little messy as is).
Other than that, the beat you have compliments DMX well. Good job!
