Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi
We are thrilled to present our second video series with chart-topping mix engineer Jaycen Joshua! This instalment focuses on another hit by the Spanish artist Rosalía – 'Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi' featuring Ozuna. Jaycen recounts the way in which he mixed the official release in hybrid fashion using a SSL 9080 XL K-Series console, then reveals how he crafted a sonically competitive remix entirely 'in the box'. He goes into great detail on his Pro Tools template and innovative processing techniques on a variety of source material – lead vocal, ad-libs, steel drums, 808, kick, snare, percussion, and more. Noting the style of producer 'El Guincho', Joshua demonstrates how the record can be enhanced for the pop market whilst retaining its cultural aesthetic. Aside from sharing his clever mix methods, Jaycen elaborates on a number of crucial subjects including apparent loudness, preamp choices, monitoring, taste vs. technique, and a lot more!
