« on: September 09, 2016, 03:11:22 PM »

i know that he was behind dogg food and half of snoops last meal too but i think he had more to do with that one since commercial  for that album sugested that he mixed whole thing

yeah i think legend has it that dre sent jay a beat cd with who knows how many tracks on it, from which he took the three or four dre produced joints on the album. then from there he ended up mixing the whole joint

I never knew he mixed Kingdom Come front to back and that's kinda disappointing to hear since that was a pretty lackluster album outside of a few tracks

he mixed 2 of Xzibit's albums too, no?

Dre mixing is almost like dre producing .. The way he structures beats completely changes pretty much the entire sound.

i think people who thinks mixing aint all that needs to listen to all eyez on me demo before quik mixed it and then listen to retail , difference is like day to nigh, thats why for example on doggystyle dre was the producer and daz and warren g was just beat makers. dre turned their beats into real songs

Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint, Black Album, In My Lifetime Vol. 1-3, and even American Gangster take a massive shit on Kingdom Come

Dre also mixed damn near all of Truth Hurts Truthfully Speaking and a good chunk of 50's Massacre and Game's Documentary. People didn't really like Jay's Kingdom Come but if you have a decent system and a good set of ears, you can't deny the mixing on that album.

for Dre's standards the mixing wasn't even that spectacular, it says a lot if some heads didn't even know Dre mixed it... Jay's flow was also a mess on that album except for a few joints, definitely in the lower bracket of his catalog

the mixing basically reminded me of Busta Rhymes - The Big Bang which was also kinda ehh

No, no involvement outside of executive producing it and his lil talking part at the end of Wesley's Theory. But the tracks Dre was a part of on Good Kidd sound way better than the others, and the ones he mixed completely on his own like Compton and The Recipe soundwise shits on every song on that album. So much louder and clearer.

Jay-z is just average, the rest is all hype, great marketing, and some sort of social proof conspiracy--dre should not have wasted his time (if he did actually mix it which I doubt) mixing inferior artists. 


Now as for Dre mixing an entire album I think it is just his own albums, Doggystyle, his work at ruthless, Dogg pound, and the mmlp

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dre -  Source 1996 cover

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

Is it in your top 5 Jay albums 'cause Dre mixed it?

Eminem's Relapse album was mixed by Dre, I would bet a large chunk of King T's Thy Kingdom Come was mixed by him too.
The question is, who is a better mixer of records out of Dre or DJ Quik?

Jay-Z is just average? You might need your ears checked buddy! Aren't you the same dude that was on Daz saying he's one of the greatest if I'm not mistaken (not sure that was a while ago). I can show you pages of Jay-Z quotables, Daz wouldn't even have 3 lines. And that's not to shit on you or Daz just trying to question your taste in lyrics.

But as for Dre mixing whole albums, you're misinformed on a couple of things you said. 1) Dre didn't do the mixing at Ruthless, Donnovan did Dre and Yella did the production. His first mixing credit was on The Chronic. 2) Of course his own albums and Doggystle and Relapse which he produced the whole thing (except Beautiful which he didn't mix or produce) that he mixed as well, that's obvious. I think what is notable is albums that a few others on here and myself mention he mixed like Dogg Food, Truth Hurts, Jay-Z 's, and Last Meal was that he mixed a lot of other producers tracks which is rare. And 3) he only mixed the 6 songs he produced on mmlp, nothing more.

Quik is up there, but Dre's ear is another level as far as mixing and I'm sure Quik would tell you that himself. This coming from probably one of Quik's biggest fans on here (notice I said fan not obsession like a few cats on here I won't mention). To make it even, play Dogg Food then play any song off All Eyez On Me that Daz produced except Scandalous which wasn't mixed by Quik and hear the difference. Same producer, different mixers. Or listen to any Quik produced song and put it against Addictive off Truth Hurts album which was produced by Quik or mixed by Dre and see how much better it sounds. Or even how Put It On Me sonically shits on anything else on the Under The Influence album.

dre wasnt mentioned in credits for 3chordfold but heres quote from terrace martin about workin on that record
''Ali from TDE was going to mix my record with Kendrick but instead I asked Dr. Dre to do it and I got to sit there and watch him mix my record. I was as star-struck then as I was when I first him at 6 or 7 years old.''
