    Low end stuff sounds great here! However the vocal isn't fitting this mix very well; it sounds like you just copped out and boosted mid frequencies like crazy, pushed her loud to make her cut through and called it quits.

    felt the bass is too quiet in this mix. Sure on paper it would seem appropriate to set an acoustic bass quiet and an electric kick loud in a mix but here it just gives the impression there's no bass at all. Otherwise the overall balances and general tonality is good here. However the vocal gets a bit lost on quiet passages. If you have trouble making compression work on her voice, you can always put that compressor on parallel ;)

    You processed the bass pretty roughly, I can barely recognize the original track. It's also way too loud (almost as loud as everything else combined). IMO the mono piano felt really stupid. usually pianos need to sound "nice in a traditional way", the other option would complete opposite, a super lo-fi (almost sample-y), sound. But this halfway-through solution sounds pretty cheap.

    That kick drum reverb sounds pretty horrible. This track is flirting with hip-hop genre, how many reverberated kick drums you've ever heard there? The snare is almost non-existent. The vocals are nicely audible, but aren't really connecting with the rest of the mix, giving the whole track a karaoke-ish vibe. I'm afraid the faders-up preview mix sounds better than this one :(

    Overall I think you're demonstrating good taste with this mix. In addition to good balances you've added some tasty tidbits (the delay and the drop). Nice work!
