Nice!

I don't have any speakers with me, so I could only listen on my tiny laptop speakers, but I liked what I heard. I'll try to remember to listen again when I am somewhere that I can connect to decent speakers.

There's a huge gap between 250-300 Hz creating a thin feeling to the entire soundscape leaving no weight to the low end.

Pretty much all pop/dance stuff these days has nothing in that range, so...

The mix is pretty much there.

The lowend is focused in a frequency range that is much lower than it should be. I suspect a typical room mode at his mixing position causing a boomy sound which in turn causes the OP to remove too much or not boost where needed the frequency range which gives weight to sounds. The vocals in particular do not have a close to your face sound that is needed in the verses. If the OP is mixing in the box this lack of weight may also come from a lack of saturation in the low mids caused by transformers.

Maybe try using saturation tools for this?

All in all it sounds alright, but it isn't professional sounding yet.

Thanks for the feedback!

The band requests a lot of sub bass. If i had my way It wouldnt be so heavy in that range. Probably why i mix away some of the other low frequency. How do I bring up the bass in the lacking range without getting muddy? Suggestions? A quick rundown on using saturation?

I mixed in my bedroom entirely in the box... on some crappy M-audio bx5's hahaha. I am thankful for the nice words, but do appreciate feedback. I too notice that my mixes lack "weight" most of the time.

In that case, i definately think you're making the most of your gear, thats
for sure.

You should be proud of yourself man, thats impressive to do that well
with such meager gear.
Hats off to you. You're a great example of what we talk about here all the time. It really is more about the skills, than the gear.
You got skills..
