It's easy: just cut 500 Hz on everything and boost 2.5k and 12k by 3dB (but use a shelf at 12k). Parallel compress the drums using a 10:1 ratio, .1ms attack, 30ms release, and apply 5 db makeup gain.

Then, use a Waves C4 plug on the mix bus using the "pop vocal" setting, and apply 6dB of limiting via L2.

Boo yah. You now sound like EXACTLY like Tony Maserati. (PM me if you wanna know how to mix like Segal; his approach is a bit different).

PS - if you wanna know how to produce like Shawty Red, I can tell you that, too, but it'll cost you. PM for details)

To me there's no such thing as a Mixing video/book, you cant tell someone how to mix something. Most of those videos and books are for situational purposes. I think you need to head to a studio, try to get a internship, and be on your way. There's nothing like the hands on experience

+1. You could also start by getting the basic procedures understood( how to do this, how to do that, when do I compress, when not to compress etc.).

Listen to styles and genres you want to emulate and start experimenting. Train your ears. Try to duplicate what you hear. You got to get the basics first.

And by all means check the posts here and meditate on them until you start to get it.
